    just kidding. However, that's what my Mom would say.
    However, she's what I consider a "true believer."
    She doesn't believe in the "literal" truth of the Bible, she just believes in the power of Christ to help her through her most difficult times.
    She and my Dad have said their prayers every night of their life, and read the Bible every morning, along with the Upper Room.
    She doesn't doubt the sense of evolution or the understanding that the universe is billions of years old.

    Creationists are not really true believers. They are plagued by doubt, and project their own lack of faith onto others out there (like scientists) who they see as a threat to their faith. Creationism is a wall that is built out of obstinancy and ignorance against that lack of faith. Unfortunately, for them, the lack of faith is really within.

    The act of recognizing their own lack of faith and accepting their doubts is more traumatic for these people who are more obsessed with building this fortress of stubborn irrationality.

    You can't make this stuff up.
