Scientific vs Christian Truth

When a scientist decides if something is true he takes his time.

On the other hand, the Christian decides by a much simpler process. He consults his gut.

This leads American Christians to some strange conclusions: e.g. that America did not invade Afghanistan or Iraq unprovoked, that American soldiers never killed any children, except a few in accidents, that American soldiers cannot commit war crimes since by definition anything America does is good, that the USA has the most solid economy in the world, that the US military is only used to defend freedom.

Christians deny this basic reality: whether something is true has absolutely nothing to do with whether they wish it were true.
