That ol' false dichotomy: science vs. religion

I've said it before and I'll say it again: most of the time these crazy things people concoct (for example evolution vs. "creationism")(so not worthy of an "ism") are a.)absurd b.)not mutually exclusive. Here's something the Dalai Lama said. I paste from an NPR story:

"If scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false," he says, "then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."

Uh-huh. Ever hear your friendly neighborhood Christian say that? I didn't think so.
