I believe when people try to say something like... oh let's say; people evolved from apes, it is a slap in the face of our creator. If we say things against the pro-evolutionists they feal it's a slap in their face so neither of us are all too happy.
The difference is no one is out to prove you wrong. When Christians denounce evolution, protesting documentaries at IMAX theaters, protesting outside of science museums and things of that nature, they are in essence saying "You, the scientific community, are LYING to the public." This is, as Jar stated, a relatively small segment of evangelicals.
That's just ridiculous.
If scientific research happens to challenge previous worldviews, is that the fault of the evidence?
The same was said during the flat/round Earth "controversy."
