    This one is worth repeating. It was buried in a thread and U've been thinking about it all day.

    A quote from Mark Twain, one of my all-time heroes.

    "It's easier to fool a man than it is to convince him that he has been fooled."

    Isn't that the truth...

    In the same vein, I love this Carl Sagan quote:

    One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.

    Dr Wilder-Smith (A former evolutionist 3 earned doctorate scientist)

    "The Evolutionary model says that it is not necessary to assume the existence of anything, besides matter and energy, to produce life. That proposition is unscientific. We know perfectly well that if you leave matter to itself, it does not organize itself - in spite of all the efforts in recent years to prove that it does."

    The one I like best:

    Extrodinary claims require extrodinary evidence!
