A few misunderstandings on this issue I'd like to clear up:

1. Acceptance of evolution doesn't mean being an atheist. My wife and I aren't atheists. Charles Darwin was a Christian. Some Christians I debate with online accept evolution.

2. Science is concerned with improving our lives here but the medicines you speak of come from fields of study which make no sense unless you accept evolution. The very fact we need a new flu shot every year is because doctors understand that the flu virus evolves. With microbiology, the process can be observed because lifespans are so short. Even Creationists grudgingly accept what they call "microevolution" but still dispute that the process works on the macro level as well.

3. Just because we're free-thinkers doesn't mean we're Vulcans. Carl Sagan certainly lacked no sense of awe for the cosmos. Even the hard-nosed Richard Dawkins and the cynical Christopher Hitchens have spoken with sentiment about the wonders of nature.

4. People can think whatever they want to but when it comes to legislation and the teaching of children in our public schools, we need to put our beliefs aside and operate on what we know.

On that last point, I remember listening to one doctor's lecture where he spoke of how his Christian faith was important to him in church but when he was operating on a patient, it was a time to put aside what he believes and concentrate on what he knows.

Isn't it true that how we teach our children in science class or how we write public legislation is every bit as delicate as how a doctor operates on a patient?
