(George Caylor, interview with a molecular biologist -- identified as "J" -- "The Biologist," Febr. 17, 2000, in The [Lynchburg, VA] Ledger ).
J-. . . To be a molecular biologist requires one to hold onto two insanities at all times. One, it would be insane to believe in evolution when you can see the truth for yourself. Two, it would be insane to say you don't believe evolution. All government work, research grants, papers, big college lectures -- everything would stop. I'd be out of a job, or relegated to the outer fringes where I couldn't earn a decent living.
Caylor-I hate to say it, but that sounds intellectually dishonest.
J-The work I do in genetic research is honorable. We will find the cures to many of mankind's worst diseases. But in the meantime, we have to live with the elephant in the living room.
