Is it possible to be highly educated in science and still be an Evangelical Christian?


I just went to see my doctor and learned that she is an Evangelical Christian. My immediate reaction was: Huh? Although I didn't say it out loud to her, I mumbled to myself: How is this possible? You're smart enough to be an M.D. but follow the doctrine of Evangelical Christianity? I always thought that only science illiterate people became evangelical Christians. What is going on?

    As far as being educated and also being an evangelical Christian, if you don't think it is possible, then apparently you've never done much research on evangelical Christianity. Some of the most highly educated people that I've met are evangelicals.

    Thank you for your input. My real question was: How can a scientist embrace a religion (such as Evangelical Christianity) that was founded on miracles? Thomas Jefferson, for example, renounced the traditional Christianity because of it.

    Yes, evangelical means to spread the good news. But, in America, they are conservative Christians who believe in the miracles found in the Bible. To me, that's not very intelligent at all.
