Well done Jerry! I am loving articles written by the Reason Project's board.

As a practical matter I do worry about Majorpain's point. If we're being completely honest and freely admit that evolution and science contradicts all religious tales of origin, design, divine intervention, and prayer (which is true) then it seems that religionists will not be accomodationist to scientists. I would predict that the undereducated masses would start to reject science and science teaching as trying to promote an atheist ideology in their children.

Removal the religious philosophy posted on the NAS and NCSE websites is a good start. In this religious culture war, will the zeitgeist tilt in favor of truth or fiction£ While I have my doubts, we must all fight the good fight.
