Mina, great story about the "Dita." BTW, it reminded me of Louis Pasteur. This great scientist used to say that as far as the Christian faith is concerned, his ideal is the faith of a simple, un-educated, illiterate Breton peasant. Shortly before his death, when he was already a world-famous professor, somebody asked him, was his ideal still the faith of a Breton peasant, and Pasteur said, "no, actually, I think my real ideal is the faith of the WIFE of a Breton peasant." Pasteur refused to understand, why would people make complicated theories about God instead of simply believing.
Yet, Pasteur was an honest scientist and, as such, would never say something like, eh, if the Bible says that it is the evil spirits who cause disease, then forget about those microorganisms. That's what these so-called "creationists" say.
