Re: Why are Creationists so afraid of Evolution?
Evangelical Christians that want to reconcile evolution and theology will have to adapt their theology, because reality isn't going to budge.
Evangelical Christians should be given the chance to make that reconciliation. Any religious person who is willing to examine their faith and say "maybe I'm wrong and need to make sure what I've learned is right," should be more than welcome to do so; not just because that can lead to fewer extreme religious groups (although that is very good!), but also because such people may find a better application of their own faith, and in that, everyone benefits.
