AVATAR NOT BY JIMMU
Not lying, but misinformed. The site that Ragnarokio linked is part of a great organization that really lays out how science backs up the Biblical accounts, but it's been a while since I've studied their stuff so I can't pull anything off the top of my head atm.
There are a wide variety of beliefs both within scientific and theological communities. Some theological beliefs are compatible with certain scientific findings. I would be surprised if young earth creationism was ever compatible with geology or astronomy or a number of more fundamental studies but old earth creationism exists as an interpretation which attempts to not contradict those things. If there was a theory which attempted to marry geology with young earth creationism I'd definitely be interested in reading it. Theology is interesting to me because the meaning of a verse can change a lot when you read it in the original hebrew/greek, or when you put it into a different (reasonable) context, and a lot of different beliefs are possible while adhering to scripture. Even outside of attempts to marry christianity with science theologians often debate the meaning of a specific verse in context, and the implications of the varying meanings. It seems a very deep world and it contradicts the idea that christianity is a religion of blind unqestioning dogma. Many people question their religion and their faith in an attempt to gain a better understanding of god's designs, and I think thats a good thing.
When it comes to understanding a topic where two sides prevent contradicting perspectives, i think its helpful to read deconstructions of those prespectives, or even listen to a debate on the topic. When both sides are allowed to expose the weak points in the other side, and then to respond to those attacks, it becomes easier to gain a full picture on the strong and weak aspects of both the perspectives. Reading from a variety of sources is also useful.
