|As the Clergy Letter Project shows, quite a substantial proportion of Christian clergy do not subscribe to any such dichotomy.|
and some scientists state Wesley, in no uncertain terms, that Christianity and science are incompatable:
|"But surely," you might argue, "science and religion must be compatible. After all, some scientists are religious." One is Francis Collins, head of the National Institutes of Health and an evangelical Christian. But the existence of religious scientists, or religious people who accept science, doesn't prove that the two areas are compatible. It shows only that people can hold two conflicting notions in their heads at the same time. If that meant compatibility, we could make a good case, based on the commonness of marital infidelity, that monogamy and adultery are perfectly compatible. No, the incompatibility between science and faith is more fundamental: Their ways of understanding the universe are irreconcilable|
Now where does that leave the clergy letter project ? Dead in the water, in my opinion.
Seems to me that Coyne and Sarfatti agree on at least one thing.
People like Coyne are the reason why so many Christians are persuaded more by AiG than real science, depite YECism's absurdity
