My Isn’t Rebecca David Generous? NO!!!

Just a warning for all the gullible fools out there. That this one is a scam is very easy to spot. It claims to come from someone in Kuwait yet is sent from an address at Yahoo! Japan. The clearest evidence, though, is the fact that NO ACTUAL PERSON WOULD REALLY CONTACT YOU OUT OF [Read More…]

Evolutionists, Darwinism and Crackpot Theories

Recently someone told me they were “not an evolutionist”. I was less surprised by the “not” than by the term “evolutionist”.
