I think you misunderstood me. I probably didn’t explain my beliefs well. I don’t believe scientific results explain everything. I just find them better and more useful than many religious ones.

Even on such fundamental issues as “thou shalt not kill”, both Christians and naturalists agree there can be exceptions, but they differ on what the exceptions are. Christians, not naturalists, launched the Crusades.
