I don't understand why religion and science can't coexist. I guess I do because of fundamentalists and idiots like Todd Akin, and thats extremely sad.
A friend of mine grew up in Iron City, TN which is on the border of Tennessee and Alabama. His stories were always a combination entertaining and interesting. Neighborhood meth labs, over the top racism, drunken hunts for bigfoot. A lot of stereotypical redneck stuff. The story I found most astonishing was his estimation that the overwhelming majority of people in the area where he grew up don't believe in dinosaurs because they're not in the bible.
Sometimes people are just dumb.
