Thanks for clarification, John. It was very informative.

I don't *like* to sound like a know-it-all, but I know that I do at
times. You obviously know a lot more about this topic than I do.

BTW, the reason I'm somewhat up-to-speed on this topic is that I've been
reading Daniel Dennet's book, Darwins Dangerous Idea, which I like very
much so far.
