This needs to be said.
If the religious believe that evolution can coexist with theology, they are not very likely to investigate evolution. They will not likely question their faith. We live in an incredibly complex world made possible by science, so when the scientists say, "There is a direct conflict" people just might listen. We need people to think critically and this cozy acceptance is not helping.

Yesterday at work a coworker noticed my copy or The Origin Of Species and told me that "Scientist make up the tests and then call the results facts. They have all bought into the idea." It was a frustrating conversation. I asked how he could accept all of the proven scientific advancements and still reject evolution. "divine intervention"
apparently God created man 6,000 years ago, and this from a young man of 21.

Scientists need to stand together and reject this nonsense as a failed hypothesis.
