I noted the following statement from the conservative Presbyterian article:
This focus doesn’t mean to suggest that these claims can be easily
dismissed or simply ignored. But evaluating them in a scientifically
responsible fashion is beyond my competence, as it is for
most Christians.

The author admits he and many others are incompetent at understanding science, so WTF is he doing criticizing it??

They should go back and read what St. Thomas Aquinas wrote in the 13th century on the topic of faith and reason.

"Supernatural revelation (faith) and natural revelation (reason) are complementary rather than contradictory in nature, for they pertain to the same unity: truth."

U.S. Protestant pastors believe about creation. More than half profess a 6-day, 24-hour creation of life.

because it's their job to believe that, they lose power and wealth and pull by not believing that

it's all a bullshit shell game, guys :D

In regards to the Bible supposedly criticizing modern science I would like to point out many Christians consider the Bible a "living document".

That is to say the believe God is all knowing. He can see what has been, what is and what will be. Therefore when He gave man his divine message in the form of the Bible, it was meant to be a message that addressed not only what had passed but what was to come.

A majority of Evangelical Christians believe in prophecy. They believe the Bible contains messages referring to many events that have yet to occur. The belief that the Book of Revelation is about a future doomsday is a good example of that. They also believe certain people, both past and present, have the ability to receive prophetic messages from God.

I am a Christian myself but I seem to be in the minority as I believe science is not an enemy of my faith or beliefs. I should also note I don't share all of the beliefs mentioned above.

That's part of the whole bibliolatry complex that runs through the American Christian system.
