You're painting with too broad a brush. There is no requirement that
Christians believe in the literal truth of the Bible, nor that
everything can be understood through its study. At a minimum, Christians
need to be placed in two categories- Bible literalists, who are either
fools or just plain stupid, and the rest, who practice Christian
philosophy in one form or another. There is no conflict between science
and the beliefs of the latter (who I'm quite certain represent the
majority of Christians).
