It's very curious to me why some Christians, mainly among evangellical Protestants in the US, feel that attacking evolution is an important battleground for their faith in the 21st centruy. They refuse to embrace the inevitable scientific truth that evolution occurs. Many Christians are perfectly content to consider that a creator of the universe might well use evolution to spawn the incredible diversity of species seen on Earth.Originally Posted by techboy
Of course, those attacking evolution do so, not because of any problems with the scientific merit of the enormous body of knowledge, but because it conflicts with a literal reading of the Bible.
And yet a literal reading of the Bible suggests a geocentric Universe. Why is this not an important area of argument? It seems to have been abandoned by those taking a literal interpretation of the Bible?
Well ... other than these folks:
