Charles Krauthammer's Op-Ed column Phony Theory, False Conflict get right to the point by asking the question "How ridiculous to make evolution the enemy of God'. Krauthammer argues that science, in trying to understand the workings of the univese, is attempting to understand the mind of God (at least from Einstein's perspective).
I find that Krauthammer’s column rings true. Religion and science attempt to accomplish the same thing, explain the world around us. It is when Religion tries to supplant Science that problems start. I pity students of Kansas who will forever be pigeonholed as dumbed down religious dupes, incapable of understanding the true value of science. Not to mention the national shame Kansas has brought to America because of their bastardization of term science and their inclusion of religious teachings in a secular school system. The world watches and laughs.
