Consider this: the revelations of science and scholarship especially in the 20th century are a GIFT to religion as well as a challenge.
The supernatural foundations of religion that have sustained it since time immemorial have been undermined by the revelations of science showing humanity for the first time the workings of the cosmos and nature. In addition, scholarship has revealed much about the early workings of the Patriarchal religions that have not been realized until our time. If religions can let go of LITERAL beliefs in the impossible and see their narratives in metaphorical terms, our crumbling and panicking religions will undergo a transformation in the 21st century. Jill Taylor's experience validates this idea.
