15. Changing fundamentalist belief is a mountain to steep to climb.

More success might be found in convincing many people who vote republican, who are neither fundies or beyond reason. Many are just like many democrats who are uninformed or can't be distracted from their consumption and busy lives, to think, react and sometimes, vote. It is not only a republican partisan problem, the democrats continue to allow it to be a non issue in the national political discourse. The democrats continue to allow the mass media to distort the importance of the issue and the science that gives foundation.

IMHO, Between those two elements more votes are to be found, and more opinions to be changed than conversion of a fundamentalism that sacrifices logic to egocentric dogmatism.

Just my two cents, and probably not worth as much.
