Their faith just ‘blew up’ when…
You may have heard of Utah senator Chris Buttars, who sponsored a bill to require science teachers to include a carefully scripted disclaimer before teaching evolution. Why do you suppose he did it?
From The Revealer – “…claims Buttars, it is simply about the lack of scientific consensus on evolution, and nothing to do with how he’s promoted the bill—by labeling his opponents zealots of “‘this religion of atheism and secularism,’” and deciding to sponsor the bill after hearing the complaints of one of his constituents, the mother of two children whose faith “blew up” after being told that they were “evolved from a lower kind.”
Which reminds me of another quote:
“A faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.”
- Arthur C. Clarke
Many Christians know about evolution but still get along just fine. Apparently Buttars’ faith isn’t that secure. Maybe he should ask them for advice.
