Yet another excellent post from Fred over on Slacktivist.

Here's a bit of it:

The scientist J.B.S. Haldane, when asked what his studies had taught him about God, famously replied, "I'm not sure, but he seems to be inordinately fond of beetles."

And from the end..

Bad theology is incompatible with science, but that's not the biggest problem facing it. The more immediate problem facing bad theology is that it is incompatible with good theology.

Lots of crunchy goodness in between, and don't skip the comments, which are excellent.

It is a good read. I posted on something similar recently, but only one person showed up to comment, for some reason.

Bad theology seeks to destroy progress of any kind, which, of course, means it seeks to promote that "P word" Ralph Nader keeps asking us not to use.

Beyond that, it creates such opposition that thinking, seeking people are left out of the equation, while Creatonist and fundamentalist idiots battle it out with reactionary atheists (this is not to imply that athiests are, by nature, reactionary).
