An interesting exchange about the meaning of Peace arose…
So @PDPrice wants to end division by having us all together reject evolution.
Basically, if we don’t come around to agree with his interpretation of Scripture, we are going to be divided. So long as we disagree with YEC, conflict is ahead.
And this brings me to a key point. Peaceful Science is different. We are looking to build bridges fully aware that in the end we will still disagree.
Our value of “humility” is stated in a particular way. We have the humility to know that, even if we are right, we cannot convince everyone to agree with us. So when we look to build bridges, to seek a better way, it isn’t by winning everyone over to our point of view.
If that was the case, we would have kicked @PDPrice and others like him off the forum a long time ago.
Instead, we know our disagreements will persist, and we hope to understand one another across our disagreements. We will likely still disagree, but the divisions might fade. That’s a different sort of peace than that which @PDPrice offers, and it both requires more of us and is more achievable all the same.
