Subject: RE: Abortion: Here we Go...
Au contraire -- the minute you REALLY believe something (such as our devout belief that matter, energy, space and such-like bizarre forces actually exist immutably) all the proof you could ever want will pop up to be counted up.

For example, I believe that gravity is a fundamental constant in body-centric spacetime. And, I believe that I have forgeotten how to make my body walk through walls. And I am fairly sure I could find proof readily. The only time this sdesn't work is when you are espousing a different set of convictions than you actually hold.

Bill D put his finger squarely on it, though. That sort of issue can be educated out of currency, it can be persuaded out of currency, but if you try to legislate it out of currency you are probably going to have a real scrap on your hands.
