Religion MAKES UP answers to squelch any curiosity humans might have. Religion tries to be THE answer. The end of all questioning. FAITH replaces reasoning and deduction and observation. Do NOT question OR ELSE.
Religion co-opts skills and byproducts of science (everything from architecture, masonry, math, astronomy, color theory, writing, musical theory...) for its own usage, to solidify and communicate its own propaganda.
Not the people I am associated with.
If there's any BIGOTRY around here it is from those religious extremists that want to prevent entire generations of schoolchildren from being curious about the world and universe around them and silence any questions their new minds might create so that they can become soldiers for their antiquated dogmatism.
Or...maybe...those talking about "INBRED American Southerners".
Look, your whole post is rife with its own kind of bigotry or at least ignorant, ill-informed, pre-conceived ideas about people of religious faith, perhaps Christians in particular.
I know a lot of very intelligent, very thoughtful (as in, given to thinking hard about important issues), well-educated, critical-thinking people that are deeply faithful Christians and also deeply skeptical of evolution as an explantion for what it attempts to explain.
The majority of Christians I know are not the close-minded, un-thinking, bigotted, backwards Neanderthals that you suppose them to be. Not perfect mind you. But not the dreck you have attempted to portray. In fact, you demonstrate your very own close-minded, un-thinking, bigotted, backwards mindset by these simplistic caricatures you fabricate.
To segue back to topic, there are also some very intelligent and educated people that are raising legitimate questions about evolution.
