I have scanned and plan to read some of your hub based on your answer. I see where you stand on the subject. I find your answer plausible and reasonable. The human ego is a formitable foe at times, isn't it?
My belief that I share with some, science can coexist with faith. However, as you said, the faithful fear that science "nulifies" faith. If anything, should science affirm faith?
Faith is inherently based upon ignoring reason - why would you need faith if you knew better? That is why science is said to be incompatible with religious faith.
YOu answer is becoming more understandable to me. Faith lacks reason and our Creator had given us reason. Is Faith an invention of man then since reasoning takes effort whereas faith does not?
Phil, you miss the fact that creation is superior to science. Science studies the products of creation. Ignoring "reason" is exactly how Edison got as far as he did. He was "unreasonable." Thank goodness for that! We have the lightbulb!

Agreed. However, the Faithful can never really give me a clear answer to this questions. Just by asking it, they say I'm attacking and insulting their faith.

You've reiterated my original question I don't see you see faith "collapsing." I'd like to know why evolution is a threat and cannot coincide with religious faith.
No I didn't. I said the reason it can't coincide is because it DISPROVES the basis of the theology. If it disproves this basis of the theology, it is a threat to it. That is why it is a threat.
