There is no intelligent alternative to science, certainly not religion. I do not understand the difficulty that some people have in recognising that some people can accommodate both.
With regard to the quotes from Genesis given above I am sure that thinking Christians recognise that the Old Testament does not represent a rule book or a history lesson. The creation myth that begins Genesis is a poetic way of expressing a belief in a creator, not a statement of fact. (I did say thinking Christians). There are some fairly hideous sections in the Old Testament. There are also some hideous elements in the histories of every country. For example, alleged witches were sentenced to state sponsored murder in both England and the USA. This should not be seen as defining modern Brits or Americans. I know there are people who believe that the Bible is factually true - there are also people who believe that the world is flat. Most Christians that I know demonstrate a rational approach to both their lives and their faith, they should not be judged as the same as the lunatic fringe.
