Unless one defines, what science is and what it is not and what is religion, then we will spend the end of eternity wasting time and not getting to a place where differences between contending views become clear and easier to reconcile, if possible.

PvM says

religious people try to apply disclaimers to science, why just to
evolutionary science? No this is not about science, it's about the
discomfort of some with science's conclusions.

Folks, the entire ASA, as far as I know, are religious people. And most are not applying disclaimers to science.

Yes, the creationists, in various flavors, often do such a thing. But we are speaking of multiple overlapping sets of people. Nobody can paint accurately with such a broad brush.

 So PvM has just mischaracterized the entire audience. Its like saying black people beat their wives. What? Thats offensive. I know creationists who attack all of science. And others who attack none. And not everybody is a creationist. And non-religious people apply disclaimers to science too. What a crock this discussion is.

Legitimate questions asked in good faith will be answered in due course. Stupidity will be ignored. If someone who is a member of the ASA wants to disagree with me, I am up for it.
But this isn't the kansas citizens for science hate group.
