    On 12 February 2006 hundreds of Christian churches from all portions of the country and a host of denominations will come together to discuss the compatibility of religion and science. For far too long, strident voices, in the name of Christianity, have been claiming that people must choose between religion and modern science. More than 10,000 Christian clergy have already signed The Clergy Letter demonstrating that this is a false dichotomy. Now, on the 197th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, many of these leaders will bring this message to their congregations through sermons and/or discussion groups. Together, participating religious leaders will be making the statement that religion and science are not adversaries. And, together, they will be elevating the quality of the national debate on this topic.

    If your church would like to join this national event, please send a note to mz@uwosh.edu. We welcome your participation.

    410 Congregations from 49 states are participating as of 2 February 2006
  2. That's great news. I can only guess that the catholics still want to be in charge of the good vs evil department having failed science 101.
