← Conversion on Mount Improbable: How Evolution Challenges Christian Dogma

matsa's Avatar Jump to comment 14 by matsa

Well put, Mr. Aus.

Especially coming from an ex-pastor, this description of how evolution challenges Christianity, is quite powerful. I know a lot of religious people who insist on including evolution in their world views. They always become mightily annoyed if I challenge their understanding of evolution. They would rather be "liberal christians" who of course understand that their bible is meant metaphorically but they draw the line where Jesus is resurrected. That obviously had to have happened. For many people ignorance is bliss, as you know, so as long as they don't understand evolution, they can keep having the line drawn there and go about their lives pretending their religion is, oh, so important.
