Science and Religion have been in conflict or rather contradiction for centuries now over various topics Take for example evolution The average man in the street doesnt know much about evolution hes probably not a creationist and he may know that species change over time The phrase survival of the fittest will surely ring a bell He probably isnt acquainted with the ways of mutation or the premises behind the theory of evolution When questioned he will say I believe in God God created us and the world and he will also say I believe in evolution or I know Adam and Eve and the Genesis story are symbolic The fact is that evolution as we understand it now based on evidence is a combination of random change and mindless selection It has no purpose and this is incompatible with the religious view of God directing the Creation to produce Man and then commanding it to stop because it has reached perfection Those who want to believe say that evolution looks random but in fact God has directed it in mysterious ways to produce us This of course must also mean that the mass extinction of the Cretacean was not a coincidence without the presumed meteorite impact that killed the dinosaurs the mammals from which man ultimately evolved wouldnt have had a chance Or are we to suppose that God allowed the meteorite to crash but if it hadnt crashed He would have directed evolution differently to produce Man anyway When does this chain of reasoning end We have free will is there anything else free or does God account for everything What is left of our free will if theres a God directing the rest of the Universe Thats a very serious limit to our freedom Assuming we have one in the first place If all people knew about evolution they would be forced to choose either believe what your religion says or believe
