Speaking as someone from the "other side", I agree and do not want to live in a society dominated by churches either. Christian history is replete with instances of abuses when to much power is afforded churches. However, as you mentioned, our faith and the Bible tells us to spread the word to all who have not heard. It is then up to them to make the decision of their life's direction. People on the fence are well aware of an alternative view. I think your reason for our debate is probably not that simple. As a retired biology teacher I have found science and faith to be entirely compatible and supportive of each other. What I have proven in my life is of no interest to me. It's what I can't prove but know to be true that holds my fascination. If I were to be wrong, (and I know I'm not) the consequences are nil. If I'm right in my faith (and I know I am) the rewards are eternal as are the consequences. As a scientist I hope at some point the unproven will enchant you as it has me.
