EvolutionBlog : The Trouble With Moderation

Another reason why I'm an atheist without apology.
EvolutionBlog : The Trouble With Moderation: "So the choices are clear. The Bible describes a scenario that is pretty much what you would expect if the world were created for man by God. Everything we've learned from science tells us that view is wrong. You can either reject the uncomfortable bits of science and cling to the Bible, as the fundamentalists do, or you can accept what the evidence seems to be saying, as atheists do. The third option is moderation, where you twist the Bible out of all recognition to reconcile it with modern science (and then deny vigorously that that is what you are doing), and graft a groundless, “But God started it all!” onto a body of scientific knowledge that has no need of that hypothesis."
