Choosy Humans Choose Science

Some folks seem to think that their *ability to choose* between what science says and what their religion says on any given topic proves that there's no conflict between science and religion. What they need to understand is that *having to choose* between what science says and what their religion says on various topics IS the conflict.

Jeff, good to see "What Worries Jeff Dee" get a bump. Of course you are correct. Loved your art while I poured over D&D Basic set night after night as an adolescent. Happy to see one of my gaming heroes of old is of an atheist persuasion as well!

Science and religion can coexist up to a point until science challenges your faith. You can either stay there, turn back or move forward.

Love to talk more about this. Any chance you'll be at WorldCon in San Antonio? I teach both science and science fiction at CMU and this comes up all the time in my circle of friends. You've seen this Miss Universe interview cut, right? Worst answers ever:

Sorry I didn't reply to your comment in a timely manner, Diane. In fact I was NOT able to make it to WorldCon. I show up at a lot of gaming cons in central Texas, though, so if you catch me at one of 'em please stop by and say howdy!
