Response to Militant Atheism

Militant atheists like to use evolution as an argument against religion. It only works as an argument against religions that reject evolution. The faiths that have the most problem with evolution also seem to have the most problem with Latter-day Saint claims of modern revelation.

I have no problem with the idea that the Bible is not the only source of truth about where the world came from. In fact, to me the scriptures address the why, and science addresses the how. I expect science to have new things to say about the origins of life and I expect prophets to have new things to say about how to make it better.

Evolution and revelation both fit the reality of an ever-changing and always progressing world.

Responding moderately to militants and extremists always pisses them off. Well done.

Thanks. I toyed with this post for a couple of months before I was satisfied. It was difficult to be brief and precise.
