A story today on the blog Why Evolution is True:
“Religion reduces science literacy in America”
It is true that scientific inquiry and experimentation can disprove literal claims of fundamentalists about historical events or natural processes. But literal fundamentalism is NOT the be-all and end-all of religion. There is spiritual and psychological MEANING in the symbols, allegories, parables and metaphors of religious traditions. When science claims that it has ‘disproved’ the inner meaning of myth and scripture, it is being just as silly as any fundamentalist who takes the story of Balaam’s talking donkey literally.
