At least according to Xian blogger David Heddle . Says Heddle:
I find it very interesting, this insistence of atheist evolutionists that an inerrant bible is incompatible with science.
He follows up with a great quote from science blogger PZ Myers:
A religion that declares the bible inerrant is not compatible with science, because its followers would have to be idiots.
Apparently David and his Christer buddies have a problem with this. But in true apologist form, they do not take on Professor Myers' statement. No, they simply whine about "atheist bigots" calling them idiots. David, following the Xian apologist textbook, takes this opportunity to express the controversy!
...see religion has nothing to fear from science—these scientists and devout Christians see no conflict whatsoever.
However, it is a strategy they just can’t make themselves follow. Why? I can only assume that it is because their hatred for Christianity far outweighs the possible political advantage. Someone like Myers could never say: “What are you worried about? Professor X believes in the compatibility of an inerrant bible and science. Science is not your enemy.” No, to someone like Myers religion must be the enemy. It just has to be. No alliances permitted. He loves being an enemy of religion.
So, according to Heddle, the only reason we atheists feel the bibble contradicts science is because of our hatred for Christianity.
Stop right there David! I'm not a fan of apologetics. I like evidence and science. Here's just a few examples where the bibble and fact collide like a fat kid and a cupcake:
1. Which genealogy of Jebus should we believe - Mark or Luke?
2. What were the true last words of Jebus?
3. Since when do animals in the family leporidae chew their cud? (Lev. 11:5-6)
4. Pi must be 3, according to the good book. (I Kings 7:23)
Need I produce more? That's why we feel any religion that calls the bibble "inerrant" would require idiots to follow it.
