......should have no trouble determining which of the following two statements makes more sense:
1) The universe and everything in it was formed billions of years ago, and the processes that have led to life as we know it today have followed a scientifically proven path, the fact of which is supported by considerable physical, geologic, chemical and mathematical evidence.
2) The universe and everything in it was formed in six days, six thousand years ago, by a giant invisible wizard who willed it to exist.
Come on, people.
The course of human understanding and development is in denial if allowed to counter known science and accept the preached word. A battle for sure, but to deny what science has given us in medicine, geology and other well documented facts or strong theory and deny it should not be a test of faith but our involvement to the world we have come to know. The sky is blue and candy tastes sweet and lemons are sore is part of our understanding and no one will argue they're not, but go beyond that seems a rather religious fervor is all likely. The link below can show what can happen if we forsake science and what it has wrought.
Can we thought what has made us better off? -----Willy
