In reply to: Ian (Australia) 's message, "Depends on what you mean by "educated", I guess" on 15:06:45 11/21/04 Sun
I get uneasy with people trying to define “Educated” as one who subscribes to one’s own world view.
Religion is the preserve of the individual, and is a matter of faith. This is distinct from that which is learned or experienced. We can see from all professions, from science and engineering, to artists and writers, that religion is not the preserve of the “uneducated” any more than atheism is the preserve of the “educated”.
There's a danger of some intellectual fascism here.

A friend of mine is in cancer research, but believes in a six day creation... If God is omnipotent, perhaps he could create the whole lot in six miliseconds! Anyway, this man is educated, and works in the medical profession on things a little higher than GCSE biology... I don't know where he thinks cancer sits in God's creation -- maybe a result of the Fall. Still, a bright and pleasant man, and very good in his field in which evolution is not the main concern, but the future...
