    They believe in all science, except the parts that are just somehow 'wrong' because it's a lie from Satan.  'Straight from the pit of hell', as someone recently famous might say.

    It's ridiculous, but it goes like this.  The very world around us is so broken.  So corrupt.  So vile with Sin that our senses, our scientific ways of knowing...  Are fundamentally corrupt.  Our senses and our minds desire Sin, they will conspire to show us things, to let us discover lies, and objectively and inevitably arrive at falsehoods.

    Sin controls science, in other words.

    The only people who can know the truth of things are those that reject the worldly truths that are based on corrupted Sin-related beginnings and start with an axiomatic beginning including the bible.  (Since the bible is holy, Sin does not come from it.  Throwing it out, as scientists do, is seen as evidence of their allegiance to Sin.)

    Sin created the fossils.  Sin created the light in transit.  Sin created the geology of the rocks.  Sin created everything in the universe that seeks to undermine the Truth.  Sin created the ability to doubt the Truth.

    All of this happened when the fruit from the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil was eaten.  That disobedience created Sin.  And Sin broke the universe so badly that science cannot work without a beginning axiomatic guide to reality (the bible).  That must've been some epic fruit.

    The upshot is, they only have to reject science when it has a direct and immediate contradiction with theology.  Quite simply, if there seems to be a contradiction?  There's not.  Somehow, god prevents what you think is a contradiction from being one at all.  Have faith, regardless of the world, because the world, at its very foundation, lies to you.  God performs miracles, and that explains what you don't understand.

    Fuckin' miracles.

    Personally, I think this is cosmic horror of the first degree, worthy of Lovecraft, but some people think this is pretty awesome.
