To make an agreement with them, you have to
comprehend what they are saying about how life should be governed. They are filibustering you.
Few intelligent folks actually believe Noah had the dinosaurs on the Ark. But stories in the Bible are a record of the rise of philosophy and
"character-building" literature. Don't worry about literal truth of the Bible. But don't assume that atheism or another religion is a better friend to you than a nice moderate Christian. ...or a worse friend if you prefer.

Religion has more experience than science in "conduct of life" matters.
Our Constitutional system was developed not by accident in countries with a strong tradition of reading Jesus' words. There's no escaping
the truth that life is tough and often tragic.
The story of Jesus helps walk us through that in a high-minded way.
If you can write a better story, do!
We humans are very early on our potential evolutionary ladder.

Thanks for asking, Scott.
