I think this was my first post at EvC.

I don't think it can really be descibed as Christian activism. There is a large body of Christians that think Creationism down right funny at best, silly as a rule and outright dangerous at worst.

There seem to be two types of Christians out there today (perhaps since the beginning) that look at the world and religion from diametrically opposite viewpoints. There is one group that looks at Christianity (and unfortunately TRUTH) as being bounded by the Bible (whichever version is their particular choice).

The second group look on GOD and the world as a whole. They do not tend to limit GOD. They look on the Bible as a map, rather than the territory itself.

For the second group, there are no problems such as the age of the universe or evolution. They see no conflicts between science and religion, the former deals with the HOWS while the later deals with WHY.

My spallin was appalin even then.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
