I had a friend of mine about a year ago who came to me with a page that he claimed to have written for himself. It involved evolution and several key points against it. I never thought twice about it. Until recently we talked of it again and I really enjoyed it. It wasn't until about two days ago that I posted it on my site.
He had told me it was okay. Looking back on it I see that for him the entire thing was somewhat of stretch. He is alot like me. While he can do alot of things really good, grammar, spelling, and proof reading do not rank as one of them. I none the less took his word for it. Thinking that it had been wrote by him after intense studying. More the less facts that he had learned that had been placed together. I am not mad at him and have already forgiven him. Here is how I found that the page was not his own.
After I posted the blog another blogger who's page I enjoy wrote me about it. He wanted to use it and I was fine with that. I went to his page today only to find that he had posted it but only through a different source(which is fine except what it lead to mean). The actual writer of the post. My friend has just grabbed pen and paper and wrote about 9 pages of someone's work. A man named Kevin Martin at http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evolution%20Hoax/evidences.htm
and also at http://clipmarks.com/clipmark/3FB6ABA7-FD3E-4BDA-AEB4-4E15767CCAEC/
It is a great read and you should go check it out. I spoke with my friend and told him that I saw it. He admitted to it and asked for me to forgive him. I told okay and I myself am also at fault.
Before I post anyones work on my page I should check it out throughly to find that all the sources are credited with their work. That is with any blogger. I moved to blogger from a very good, well established blog for a reason. I wanted to be able to write on a page about things that interest me and peope like me. The people there were much more intelligent than I am. I wanted my blog to be for those who don't work well with big words( big words are great but sometimes you don't feel like looking a;; the words up. I am now learning what my friends at the other blog have already learned.
Research and consistency go a long way. A spelling error can be overlooked alot quicker than a mistaken post.So my friend apologized to me and now I do the same to you. The post will now be linked to these two sites above. Enjoy the post. I know I did.
