Yes, but in so doing they are effectively denying either one of two things:<quoted text>
Which I actually agree with you on.
Science, including the Theory of Evolution makes NO claim on the viability -- or lack thereof -- for a Supreme Being.
Sorry Timn. HTS is correct on this one.
Which renders your previous post an opinion stated by one man.
OTHER men, with equal scientific credentials, make similarly compelling statements expressing THEIR opinion about THEIR belief in a Christian God.
Which means you WOULD agree that there are a great many pious Christians (and folks of other faiths) that *DO* reconcile the Theory of Evolution with their faith.
1. If they believe that only mutations and natural selection account for all life, they are denying that God directed the creation.
2. If they believe that God directed the transmutation of species, then they deny the proposed mechanisms of evolution as sufficient to explain life.
