Many believers will cling onto the statement, that God and Science go hand in hand. That Science is the How, and Religion is the Why, things happen. This is simply a desperate attempt, to preserve Religion, in a department that proves it to be false. Especially, when this department, is becoming more and more relevant, as the generations go by. People are simply molding Religion, in order to fit into today's society, where Science, and the access to information, is not a privilege, but a right. Thus, disproving this concept, as well as the ideology of Religion, in itself.

Fully agreed and could not have said it better. It has just always struck me how the perpetuation of religion has maintained, and even grown, despite the knowledge of scriptural passages containing scientific claims that have subsequently been proven false. The holy texts make claim for occurrences that we know CAN'T be true. It's not that I choose not to believe, I sincerely cannot.

I believe the two can live in harmony with each other.

How? both give contradictory accounts for the origin of the universe; religion says first man and first woman, evolution says there was no first man or first woman which therefore means that there was no original sin and therefore no need for jesus. how could they coexist?
