This thread is getting crazy. If scientists let religious beliefs interfere with their job then they are not very good scientists.<quoted text>
Some scientists have religious beliefs, and allow those religious beliefs to cloud their judgement. They choose to ignore their scientific training and instead follow ancient ignorant dogma, because they have been conditioned to do so.
The jury isn't out for anyone that can accept the Theory of Evolution. If you are invested in not accepting it, it doesn't matter how well supported it is. And it is extremely well supported by evidence. It's one of the best supported scientific theories out there.
I agree with the poster that evolution is used along with intelligent design. Does this make me a nut case?
