Thoughts From Kansas pointed me toward an interesting article at the Journal-World’s Lawrence.com called “God, Science and the Kooky Kansans Who Love Them Both.”
Through a series of interviews with scientists, clergy, TFK himself, the article comes up with three findings on the evolution debate.
Finding #1: By definition, religion and science hold different missions and purposes.
Finding #2: In the modern world, people have found ways to reconcile scientific information and spiritual beliefs.
Finding #3: A perceived conflict between science and religion has been constructed, through media and public forums, by people with political aims.
