“Anyway, it’s obvious that the combative tone adopted by the majority of your compatriots, their pitting Evolution vs. Religion as an all-out, winner-take-all battle, is in large part responsible for the escalation in rhetoric.”
Same thing happened with the homosexual lobby.

That is my take too. The reaction to Intelligent Design is WAY WAY over the top.

Invariably when an evolutionist speaks in such absolute terms ... right around the corner is another finding that further erodes the notion that evolution is a proven fact.

Jesus explains that salvation is rebirth as a spiritual creature. Such condition is decidedly not evolutional.
Prior to spiritual rebirth humans are mere animals, subject to all the laws of that fallen state, evolution chief among them.
There are, then, 2 states of existence. The one is animal consciousness. The other is God consciousness.
Those who choose to submit to the laws of evolution can not rise above them. Those who choose to submit to the laws of God are reborn as spiritual creatures, no longer subject to the laws of nature.
They want to be monkeys? Fine. Let them be monkeys.

Nearly everything that was written about the solar system in my old astronomy textbook from the 1960s was proven wrong by the Voyager fly-by missions.

So much for inevitable truth of scientific theories...

Evolution is not a problem for me. I think that when the human being had the brain capacity to comprehend GOD, God made contact.
