What specific statements of mine said that I believed otherwise 
about what?  Can you provide direct quotes?

As for straw men, I had referenced that certain supporters of 
science have erroneously represented Darwin's teachings to me.  I am 
not at all speaking about all scientists.  You may have generalized 
one of my statements as referring to the entirety of the scientific 
community, and so you got offended.

Regarding the differentiation of 'materialistic' evolution and the 
evolution of 'consciousness', you yourself have just separated them 
into two categories when you mentioned that 'they' go hand in 
hand.  'They', as you have used the word, is a reference to 
multiplicity and therefore differentiation.

The reason that our minds naturally differentiate between different 
concepts is so we can examine the smaller parts.  We can always 
rejoin the concepts again in our minds after scrutinized cross-
examinations.  Don't worry.  It's not broken.
