Can Christians be rational?

Last night I was checking out more video clips from "Don Exodus", the fella who made the video debunking the videos of Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron. Guess what? The guy is a Christian.

But...but...but...how???? Don't all Christians believe in creationism? Don't you have to reject evolution in order to believe in Jesus Christ? Isn't the whole argument over Intelligent Design an argument between people who believe in God and people who don't? Umm, that would be no, no, and no.

Oddly enough, I thought that it was really cool that this guy was a Christian. After reading Ray Comfort's blog entries, I was starting to feel like religious people were idiots, even though my experiences tell me otherwise. So, this guy was a nice little reminder that there are plenty of people who are intelligent and still believe in God. It's a bit humbling, really. Even though I'm secure in my beliefs, it's good to have a reminder every now and then that I don't know and understand everything.

If you liked the video that I posted, check out his others. Or, just check out one of the better ones below:

Hi Lance.

I've visited your site a couple of times before. Y'know, it's been a real bear trying to register to leave a comment. Dunno why.

I don't know if you've ever heard of John Gerstner. (d. 1996) I think you would like his writings. He does some very close reasoning in his discussion of creation/evolution.

btw. I hope you know that I don't include you among the recalcitrant atheists I mentioned last night on Ray Comfort's blog.

Oh, I can definitely be recalcitrant.
