At some point, I realized that so much of the discussion about evolution among the masses (i.e. people like me, and probably most of us here) is some sort of dog whistle for identifying political viewpoints. So, for the most part, I don't really pay attention.
That said, I *don't* think that is what is going on in this thread.
I do sympathize with the two points moda mentions:
how people look to God when they can't figure something out. And why it's so harmful. And he's right.
frustration with when religion tries to silence scientific truth. His has happened so many times in history that it's not even funny.
That is, people being prohibited from or persecuted for investigating things by religion is wrong, IMO, and detrimental to the human species. That said, I don't see any of that happening today, at least in the U.S.
And while I personally accept the evidence for evolution, I don't have an issue people who don't. And this is mainly because I don't really see how it matters in the bigger scheme of things.
