My initial point, which I believe Maarten agreed with, was that Christian rationalists have more in common with atheists and agnostics that they do with Christian fundamentalists when it comes to the place of science in our world.

Anthony suggests that this is something that Christians can work out together. I think that that is pie-in-the-sky dreaming. From the very beginning, Christians have acted in accordance with:

"Whensoever two or three of you are gathered together in Christ's name, disagree on a point of scriptural interpretation, and form a new denomination."

I think that there is no way that literalists and rationalists can bridge the gulf between them with respect to science. The compromise would be far too great for either side to make - and there is no middle ground.
