Re: Does evolution really conflict with religion?
Evolution can "disprove" God, but only certain types of God. Evolution does disprove the God of Biblical and Quranic Literalism, for starters.
If you think God is needed to explain the diversity of life then evolution disproves your God. If you thnk God is needed to explain the moral feelings of humans and other animals, then evolution disproves your God.
Additionally, if you use God as an explanation of the complexity of nature (like the "fine-tuned" physical constants), evolutionary thought shows this to be a fallacy. Complexity ultimately has to come from simplicity. Complexity is not explained by positing an even more complex Creator. If you would say that God is simple then I would say, in rebuttal, that a God that cannot create a universe is simpler then a God who can.

A glass of juice has as much sugar, ounce for ounce, as a full-calorie soda. And those vitamins do almost nothing.
Quick: think back to childhood (if you've reached the scary clown you've gone too far). What did your parents or guardians give you to keep you quiet? If you're anything like most parents, it was juice. But here's the thing: juice is bad for you.
