Tina Dupuy’s latest column on the supposed idiocy of the Theory of Creationism not only further confirms that Ms. Dupuy is unquestionably one of the most intolerant individuals on the face of the planet but also simultaneously provides insight that points to a possible genetic component at work here that explains her routine riotous rants against organized religion: her mitochondrial DNA came from a woman who purportedly referred to the majority of texts in existence as "devil books" and informed her that T-Rex was left ashore by Noah because he didn’t fit on the ark. For the longest time I have pondered as to why Tina is so obviously "ticked-off" all the time, but at last now I have some evidence to begin to comprehend why.

Try to loosen up a little, Tina. The "lesser minds" such as Sir Issac Newton for example, or the thousands of contemporary learned peer reviewed scientists and physicians along with the majority of the inhabitants of Planet Earth who espouse spirituality of one type or another and agree that there might just be forces at work in this world that even "great minds" such as yours & your companions cannot explain, empathize with your repeated childhood traumas -- particularly those ones revolving around Santa Claus. Never the less try to realize that despite the conflicting theories and differences of opinion and faiths that abound, you of all people ought to be grateful for that "freedom of choice" that liberally allows certainly for each us to pursue belief systems unencumbered and unmolested.

Realizing this, you should now be well aware that you also still have ample opportunity to once again delight in your long-ago "enthusiasm for Tyrannosaurus Rex." He was one mighty magnificent creature. And that I do happen to unequivocally agree with you on.
