"Christians can and do reconcile them. It seems to be just non-Christians who are unable to accept that fact."

As a non-Christian I can categorically state that I am unable to accept that "fact". Then again, I do not really care if Christians choose to believe in fairies at the bottom of the garden - just as long as they don't expect me to believe the silly things that they choose to believe.

Of course you chose to ignore what I - and Steve - wrote about the crucial difference between (blind and wilful) 'belief' and understanding based on evidence. You also ignored my attempt at a definition of 'faith'. Here it is again: " ... religious faith is the fervent and unquestioning belief in something invisible for the existence of which there's no evidence - the very antithesis of science. AND THAT'S WHY THE TWO CAN'T BE RECONCILED!!!
