Nordic 11:

Just for fun I thought I would help you guys out and provide you with a list of other men of faith whose ignorance was masquerading as arrogance:

Nicholas Copernicus, Sir Francis Bacon, Johannes Kepler, Gregor Mendel, Rene Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Michael Faraday, William Thomson Kelvin, Max Planck, Francis Collins.

With a history of such ignorance, theism is doomed.

Ah! Men of science who also happened to have been brought up in Christianity! I must let the "true" Christians decide whether or not Newton was a "true" Christian. I notice the most modern Christian scientist named by Nordic 11 is Francis Collins, - yes he of the trinitarian waterfall! All the rest are long dead, even Max Planck. I would have thought Nordic 11 might have mentioned Lemaitre, Belgian priest who is credited with first postulating, what has become known as the "big bang" idea. (Hoyle gave it that name). Lemaitre only died in 1966, that would make him almost as up to date as Collins!

And the ground breaking Christian scientists of today's age are?

........William Lane Craig?

(Okay, only joking!)
