← MUST WE ALWAYS CATER TO THE FAITHFUL WHEN TEACHING SCIENCE?

What bothers me about the deist foot in the door is that it's not just "Oh, and by the way, I'm going to talk to my ceiling at night and waste every Sunday morning for the rest of my life based on that possibility." It's that, in spite of the supposed limitations of the deist god, some of them will still want to run the world, the country, and your life based on the answers that they hallucinate that their ceiling gives back to them. That's why its a problem that religious moderates give cover for the extremists.
