10.01.11 | Your God is Not My God
Why is the word "religion" now so often interchangeable with "Christianity"? It irks me when people keep saying things like, "Oh, religion is so flawed, I can't believe you guys don't believe in evolution and natural selection but believe that we were made of clay by some oh-so-powerful dude." Hey, first of all, not all Christians reject the theory of evolution—some believe in science too. Secondly, Christianity may be a religion, but religion is not Christianity. Thirdly, not all religions contradict with the theory of evolution. Fourthly (but not necessarily "lastly"), why can't people believe in whatever they want to believe in? After all, science and religion aren't so different from one another.
