I cam across a Christian Fundamentalist site containing numerous arguments against the theory of evolution.

No one can prove the origins of life, but there seems to be enough evidence to draw objective conclusions. The site wasn't making any efforts to prove the theory of creationism. Just because someone wrote it in a book a long, long time ago doesn't make it so.

I respect people of faith, but I really wonder about people who would throw science out the window because it contradicts some ancient dogma.

I think if everyone studied the teachings of the Bible (or Koran, Torah, etc), the world would be a better place. But I personally believe it's all fiction. I don't believe in Heaven or Hell or God.

"carefully steps onto soapbox"

My icon of me as Dr. Zaius is perfectly suited for this topic!

Would you say that Issac Newton's book on the laws of physics is a work of fiction? How about Darwin's Theories of Evolution? My point is that the Bible is a perfect historical and scientific book for it's time. They dealt with the facts as they saw them and described them with all the understanding that God-fearing people could muster. They were bound to get things wrong or mis-interpreted. Just as Darwin (off on how fast evolutionary steps can progress) and Newton (mistakes in some of his math but fudged the result) did.
Creationists are always tripped up in the steps of Creation because it is written that first God created all the plants...then on the next day he created... uh, "Let there be Light"... the Sun. You should pity them ... for they can demonstrate their faith, but not faithfully demonstrate proof.

religion is bad

throughout history, more people have died/killed because of, or in the name of religion than any other reason. Gov. Jesse Ventura was correct to say that it's a crutch for the weak minded.
