And in falling for Ken's bait (are you familiar with the term
"troll"?), threatens to take this thread once more into the tiresome
"politics of science vs. religion" debate which has already led
numerous people to cancel their Taxacom subscriptions. If you want to
discuss how this affects taxonomy, then fine, but if NOT, then
PLEASE, take it elsewhere. Yes, it is a serious topic which does
affect us all, but there ARE mailing lists for politics, mailing
lists for religion vs. science, and mailing lists for global change.
THIS mailing list has another focus.

Sincerely,
