Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Why creationists can never convince me that evolution is false.

    The mature intellect understands that
    only uneducated creationists think there has ever
    been any claim of monkey ancestry.

    And they would get it too, that human
    beings are a species of great ape.

    Then too, some mature past the egoism of thinking that
    their chosen reading of scripture is somehow the final
    word in Truth

    Science can handle anything that comes along.
    Religion is hard and brittle, subject to shattering.

    We've heard as much admitted, by statements like:

    "If there was no Flood then then Jesus was
    a liar, the Bible is a lie".

    Your example presents a fundamentalist argument and is not typical of the thinking of most Christians, in my experience.
    Some aspects of science might also be described as "hard and brittle", especially the attitudes of some (a minority) scientists. Equally some aspects of religion are "flexible and mellow".

    Oh but they are, and again, axioms are accepted to be true without discussion, but they can well be false, they are provisional to a given argument.

    Here we go again, I learned axiom as a mathematical term with a specific definition, but as we keep seeing, it also has a muddy colloquial definition that leads to all manner of equivocation.
