But as much as we like ragging on religious people here, there are forms of religion which are compatible with science. I like Spinoza's epistemic theory of miracles. I mean, the revisionist accounts of religion do reek of 'god of the gaps' but at least they're sane and intelligent. Likewise Kierkegaarde's idea that attempting to rationally explain religious things removes their entire point.
Really, anything where it's clear that some thought and intelligence has been put into the believer's religious ideas rather than "gods plan" or whatever is okay by me. And there are many good points to religion when it decides to stay in its place. Community, spiritual guidance, etc. etc.
So I guess I'm a religious apologist.
