Robert Bakker is a respected paleontologist who sees no conflict between science and Christianity. Neither science nor Christianity is going to go extinct. Atheists like Dawkins are living in a dream world when they say that atheism is slowly winning. Atheism offers people no reason to hope or love. Christianity has those two items covered. People are attracted to science and Christianity but are not attracted to the negative sterility of atheism. Combining good science with a Christian world view is the future. Robert Bakker is just one example of the future of science.
Attempts at destroying all religion are simply barking up the wrong tree. Atheism can only marginally survive in an artificial academic bubble but it can’t seem to gain wide spread acceptance without coercion . The old Soviet Union tried to enforce atheism in all aspects of life but was unsuccessful even with the full force of the state. Modern Russia now has plenty of religion and atheism is a weak political force.
