That is a funny fairy tale to tell to our children (below 4) just as many as the old Bible (the one before christ, don't know name in english) has. By the way, as child I was particulary attracted to the apocalypse.
Religion is no longer fighting with science, only the believers think they are. Religion has already welcomed many scientific facts about life on Earth, remarking the theory of evolution. Actually, I have seen booklets that explain, briefly but correctly, molecular biology's central dogma (DNA -> RNA -> peptide).
However, there is still argue (mostly from religion) about the ORIGIN of life on Earth as well as about the universe creation matter.
The truth is out there, believing in religious arguments tell us we still far from uncovering it and too stupid and immature to understand it even if revealed.
