Theology is anti-science, and in general we *should* be against
supernaturalism, and try to reduce by natural theories where
possible. Engage them in argument, and even evangelise if that
is necessary to counter their pulpit propaganda.
I am completely appalled by image on TV of TALIBAN muslims
destroying the immense ancient Buddha statues. This vandalism
is inexusable, and shows the bigotry and bankruptcy of the ideology
of primitive human-era Islam which drives them.
