More of a heads-up than anything else, for those of you who have access to Science, there's an article about
scientists who leave creationism for evolution.

The main point is that it's a hard personal struggle:
Trying to articulate where his religious beliefs stand now, Godfrey's eyes fill with tears. "It's been so long, a lifelong struggle, to sort out," he says. He has flirted with atheism but found it too depressing. Several years ago, he stopped attending church for a year before returning. He believes in God today, he says, but tomorrow may be different.

One sub-text is about how we should support people in this situation.

It is fun to dip into the various threads to watch cluelessness at work in the hands of the confident exponent. - Soapy Sam (so say we all)
