If you look at Science, and compare it to a religious hierarchy, it's structure is pretty much the same, right down to sects....such as Dianetics: The Church of Scientology.
Agreed!
Both groups applies the concept of faith...

Go straight to the point.
Christians who accept evolution. Bear in mind that evolution is generally accepted in the UK. There are some private religious schools (around 50 or so) that teach religious fundamentalism instead, of course they are in the minority. Ergo, since if the UK is mostly Christian as you claim, most of those Christians accept evolution.

In fact the only countries that don't tend to be third world, or in or close the Middle East where your fellow fundie Muslim pals live. Or America, who prefer outsourcing their scientists from other countries.(evil grin)

Wow. Truly an argument for ignorance if ever there was one. And they make it sound so profound...

Truly there is no paradox in realty, but only in the human mind.
There a argument that if one really did know "Truth" would they know it? One cannot rationalize Truth, because there will always be the possibility of being wrong(doubt). So the only way that Truth can be found is through faith.
"Truth" is subjective.

That's traditional gospel or church music. I couldn't be sure but sounded like a hymn, but it wasn't bad personally not my flavor of music, I like rap and Christian type of music, except anything like heavy metal or screamo, because I like to keep my standards straight.
It was the only one I could find at short notice, I've had homework to do. I intended to find something with a just a little more "umph", but still along those lines.

Oh, I thought it was just agreeing with Charles as if his words were gospel.

Um, scientology has nothing to do with science. It ain't the fault of science that there are cranks out there who take sciencey-sounding words and pretend it proves their particular brand of BS. This includes creationism, new-age "quantum" woo, and scientology.

It's nice of you to offer to serve as The Dude's spokesman,
but I don't recall The Dude ever saying that Darwin had the last word.
That's the last thing Darwin had. Which is why evolution has evolved since his day. I don't worry about Chuck though, he's barely capable of speaking, much less speaking for anyone else. But if he thinks he can speak for God Almighty, he sure ain't gonna worry about trying it with me. Or anyone else for that matter.

Science is merely a tool for understanding the universe. It's not meant to be used as a religion. But if you really hate science that much then stop using your computer, forgo all medical care, leave your house, go live in a cave and go hunting for your own chickens.

It's a Science cult...admit it.
Nah, we just call them cults. You could easily call them a "driving cult" instead just because many of them drive cars. But that doesn't make car manufacturers and drivers all part of the same cult.
