I have stated this before: Exluding science in the name of God isn’t salvation, it’s laziness. The Museum of Earth History, a rather extraordinary place in Arkansas based on Creation Science and the belief that the world began about 4,000 years ago, is one such place where the ownership group profits from that laziness. Worse, the distortion of good science (Mary Schweitzer’s discoveries is just one example) is simply regrettable.
There is no need for this.
The hard line camps that preach either science exclusively, or religion exclusively, are both in need of an examination of what each other has to offer. Important as the Good Book might be, I think the fundamentalist extreme, in particular, needs to read a little more than just the Bible.
I believe that my God wants me to learn as much as possible the truth about this world in which he put us.
