You don't realize that it is the duty of Christians to make you listen to
them. They're are obeying a "higher" law. The best thing to do when
someone posts something that has nothing to do with anthropology as a
science is to quietly and politely refuse to participate in the discussion
(proper netiquette) or to enjoy reading about and/or ridiculing the "logic"
of creation (not proper netiquette, but sometimes fun).
