When it comes to evolution, there really shouldn't be 'two sides', though...especially if one is fueled by religion. As we've discussed before, from the outset, if you're going to refute the science of evolution, you need to refute it scientifically. Religion has nothing to say about it just as music or pottery does. To somehow think it does is an essential flaw in logic and reason. When it comes to that, it is not evolution's duty to accommodate scripture, it's religion's duty to realize that we know better now than we did in times past, and that it has to reassess its information.
