I have forever and always wondered why "religion" and "science" would seem to be such polar opposites; unable to seemingly co-exist. Does it need be mutually exclusive?

I don't feel that evolutionists are "after" Christians; I think that scientist's minds operate in very specific ways as regards both their thought processes ans well as orientation. I don't think that that necessarily implies an invalidation of anyone's religious or spiritual beliefs.

At least it doesn't have to...

Interpretation of what we know and how we know it would seem to be key in our overall daily lives. To be able to peacefully co-exist is the challenge...

Take gentle care.

June, I think they are opposites only in the minds of some Christians. Many great scientists and their students are Christians. It's only those that subscribe to the literal interpretation of the Genesis account of creation that feel that evolutionists are "out to get Christians."

I simply do not understand why Genesis becomes important enough to create discension, when the message of Jesus is so much more important. It seems to me that the same amount of time could be better spent spreading the gospel of the New Testament. IMHO

Seems to me your issue is with Muslims (not Islamics by the way) not with evolution. So my question is, why start a post about evolution, when your only beef with it is that Muslims are not confronted about it as much?. Another poster gave you the answer to that, yet you continue dancing around the topic. If it makes you feel better, start a new thread with EVOLUTION and ISLAM, Allah's side of the story

If you can't believe the Genesis account why on earth would you believe in Jesus. Either the Bible is a Book of truth or it isa Book of lies. You can't have it both ways.

The Bible is a work of art and art paints the truth with different colours of lies.
