: This is somewhat inflammatory, but that's all right- we can douse the flames if it gets too hot, LOL.
: I thought you might be one of several posters who might answer a question or two-- Down below we were talking about how one relates, in your case, to God--
: Which caused my meandering mind to wander over to a comment Anne Rice had made about Christians and their disregard/disbelief of science--I've seen that ramped up to a 'fear' level in others.
: What is it that causes a Christian, someone who believes in the Bible, to disregard and attempt to refute scientific evidence that is able to be proven and documented.
: Why do you think there are so many fundamentalist Bible believers so typically:
: 1. Anti-science
: 2. Anti-environmentalist
: 3. Anti-ecumenical
: 4. Anti-democrat/liberal
: I'm actually going somewhere with this and thought I'd run it by here to see what you and possibly others would have to share.
: What I'm seeing is that so many of the fundamentalist/Christian persuasion refuse to open their eyes or broaden their perspective to include irrefutable absolutes, as though it is a bad thing to believe in what is before their very eyes...
: ....in my somewhat argumentative opinion, lol.
