Trying to portray Christians as a group of scientific illiterates helps no one. You can’t exactly bring people to the Lord by convincing them that they can only be Christians if they ignore every scientific advancement ever made in every field of science.

Organized religion has survived the discoveries that the earth is not flat, that the sun is not the center of the universe, and that the universe is more vast than we can imagine. It will survive the discovery that humans were not made from dirt 6000 years ago, too—but not through the efforts of people clinging desperately to a narrow, metaphorical view of the earth.

It’s not just “scientific illiterates” who take issue with evolution. Hundreds of scientists have signed the Scientific Dissent From Darwinism, which states: “We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.”

The list includes respected scientists from such universities as Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, among others.
