I can’t figure out how to paste the Googled version of the megaregion map of the US here, but I live in a global part of Dallas located in the Texas Triangle, which isn’t quite the northeastern megalopolis between Boston and DC yet, but 16 million out of 26 million Texans live within it.
I had to see Abilene because it is two hours outside this triangle.
Do you live in one of the urbanized sections of a megaregion? I will bet this moderates how you perceive the science-religion relationship. Especially if your region is not within Dixie.
Interestingly, Texas is the convergence point of four megaregions.
I wonder what the fear of Abilene pastors to speak about science means, since they are far separated from the cosmopolitan cities,
I have appreciated your comments and it motivates me to do more interviews in city, country, and especially churches in small university towns
