← Atheists are wrong to claim science and religion are incompatible, Church of England says

So let's see. If religion and science are compatible, these Anglicans have given up on

  • The seven-day Creation
  • The Flood
  • The Burning Bush
  • The parting of the Red Sea
  • The various HS("OT") miracles, like Elijah's raising fire on the altar.
  • Jonah and the whale
  • The Virgin Birth
  • Jesus' miracles, except those with naturalistic explanations
  • The raising of the dead at the Crucifixion (they hardly ever talk about that one)
  • The Resurrection
  • Penetecost
  • The Ascension
  • Paul's Road to Damascus experienceSo what does that leave?
  • The Crucifixion
    And for Jesus' crucifixion to be any different from anyone else's (such as Spartacus'), you need to believe in substitionary atonement, which is a damnable doctrine.
