    I like this section in particular:
    "Other Christian sects, especially Fundamentalists, go to the other extreme, and urge their followers to reject any science that conflicts with the literal interpretation of scripture. In their view, real scientific evidence always supports the Bible, and scientists only hold beliefs contrary to the Bible because of evidence, and because scientists desire to find a reason instead of God, in order to continue their sinful life styles."

    yeah so what about it? real science does not contradict the Bible! but its not because scientists are any more sinful than the rest of humanity or that they desire to disprove or find a reason not to believe in God its simply because much of what passes for science is nothing of the sort๐Ÿ˜‰

    Fish becoming men is a fine example. It's not something to be dumbed down or dismissed, i.e. "egg becoming chicken."

    Fish becoming man is much more complicated and is not anything more than a theory. So why is theory accepted as established science or fact? It's because of the predisposition and bona fide dogma that exists in the scientific community.

    The missing link is still missing but that doesn't stop science sweeping it under the carpet, does it.

    And by the way, I'm a Fundamentalist but I'm not a bible literalist. Every true Christian is actually a Fundamentalist if you look up the definition.

    The word Fundamentalist or 'fundy' has been changed by the secular culture to mean something entirely different. It's been 'upgraded' to mean zealous, fanatic, militant bible-thumping bible literalist.

    It was a move intended to damage the reputation of Christians, not unlike the way people who allege to have had UFO experiences, are said to believe in 'little green men.'

    The theory of gravity is also not anything more than a theory.

    The germ theory of disease is also not anything more than a theory.

    Atomic theory is also not anything more than a theory.

    So why are these accepted as science? For the same reason the theory of evolution is accepted as science.

    I fail to see the actual point of this thread

    Is it just a good passage from wiki or is there a question or topic raised by the OP?

    What is the definition of 'fundamentalism' according to you? Also, what is a "true" Christian? Is that in opposition to, say, a false Christian?
