I do not understand why such an enlightened nation is embroiled in a senseless science vs. religion turmoil

It's probably a simple misreading of what America is about. It's commerce, same as England. For commerce, a deep and subtle understanding of science and philosophy is not necessary, but a knowledge of finance, marketing and engineering is required. Both science and religion are peripheral interests and can be argued and confused all daylong without affecting vital issues of commerce. We don't argue much about engineering and bank loans.

That is deeply reassuring. And over there, you have never had to endure what we have here: socialist governments bent on abolishing commerce! But they haven't (and will not) win.
