what religion and evolution have in common is that whether you are a magpie or a Christian, your present state of being is absolutely dependent upon whether you have adapted to changing conditions over time. The greatest challenge to "evolution" in religion comes from the faithful having to decide whether to adapt to changes in our understanding of the world we live in. Religion does not need to change when it denies facts that don't matter. Only when facts determine whether we survive or not, does religion need to change. The natural sequence from spirits to many gods to one god seems to me to finally reach the conclusion that there is no god. The series goes many, one, then none. With no god at all, facts are not a problem. Non-religious ideologies then become the greatest barrier to survival.
