Most people see the Christian religion and science as incompatible......I believe that it depends on your interpretation of both. Both are compatible IMV without compromising one for the other, which many seem to want to do. Faith is bending to unyielding science by those who are moving to theistic evolution as a middle ground. Is this move justified?
Faith appears to answer the questions that science alone can't, and science appears to answer the questions that faith alone can't.

Following a Post I wrote, I Heard the claim that Atheism is claiming there is No god,
I tried correcting the person and explaining him that Atheism is the lack of belief in a God.

I Would love hearing Atheists POV on the matter..
Why call him Father? Why a he? (edit: Okay... Why call him Father and/or why refer to the Creator as a male or he. Hope that's better wording.)
Yes, I know history and politics but think about it spiritually from the believers perspective (if you're not one) or explain to me logically (believers)...
