It depends on the religion!

In today’s feedback CMI’s Dr David Catchpoole deals with some skeptics—one who has trouble seeing how religion and evolution can coexist, and the other who is slavishly devoted to a thoroughly ‘evolutionized’ religion—atheism.

Brittany S. from the United States writes in response to article: Pesticide resistance and evolution:

I don’t understand why evolution and religion can not co-exist. Evolution is a fact, and it is not a matter of “believing” in it; it is a matter of understanding it. One can understand that evolution is real, and so is their religion that they believe in. I think I just become frustrated when you say there is no evidence towards evolution where there most certainly is. Why would scientist give evolution the name of a theory if it was not real. Gravity is also a theory, do you not believe in that?
