They Left out a Few Steps
The “Faith” side of this chart left out a few steps such as:
Fights break out over different interpretations of Scripture.
The side less in accordance with reality shrinks.
The side formerly less in accordance with reality finds another way to accommodate facts.
The side formerly more in accordance with reality drifts away from the facts.
One side tries to short circuit the process by claiming to be “reality-based.”
The complaints by the “Fixed-Earth” loons are about an instance of the third step in the above list. There are religious people who absolutely refuse to look at reality but there aren't nearly as many of them as the secularists think.
