I think it is the other way around. For example, look at the atheist countries which accept evolution blindly. China, and the Former U.S.S.R.
were not places I would like to live. But the opposite is also true. Completely fundamentist countries (not Christian, which I think would be mcuh better) are also places I would not like to live. There is a balance.

"The mass population depends on expert advice in order to know what our best science indicates is the case. If the population becomes confused by what is in fact legitimate science, then the population will equate scientific experts with pure opinion. This has devasting consequences since the public will be less likely to support expensive programs such as space telescopes, particle accelerators, etc that can cost in the billions of dollars. If this happens, then science will produce less knowledge which would only reinforce the notion that science is not worthwhile to earn our tax funds"

I disagree mostly with this. Many advances in science were done by Christians. Scientific advancement would not halt because people believe in creation. Why would it? I do not want to stop scientific research! KC2GWX 73's
