I think it is important to note that in the 80's, Steven Weinberg wrote something to the effect of "It is shame that the Big Bang Theory is the most likely form of cosmology, since that theory most resembles the description in Genesis."
The ultra conservative Christian people people do not scare me much. I get where they are coming from ( mostly, of course there is the occasional Westborro church ) and most just want to believe what they believe and teach their kids so.
The scary people are the people who make science their religion usually without knowing what the science says and also criticising religion without knowing what the religion says. Or knowing who the scientist they make their new high priests are. They might as well be following Immanuel Velikovsky.
