Why is it difficult to evaluate beliefs in relation to science?
It's easy to evaluate many beliefs in relation to science.
Which specific beliefs do you mean?
The beliefs im talking about are religious beliefs and the science im speaking about is really evolution.
Ahh -- it would have saved us both time if you'd posted that in the beginning. <g>
Most religious believers (Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, etc.) find no problem accepting scientific evolution.
Some Christians, though, believe that everything in the Bible is literally true. In other words, they are certain that God created all life in seven days. However, many Christians -- and those with other religious beliefs do not accept the Bible as literal history or science. They believe that God created the natural world -- of which evolution is a key part.
