'Evil isn't the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as evil, maybe more so, and it's a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against stupid. That might actually make a difference.'~Harry Dresden

I think evolutionists "orthodox" who are opposed to the literal understanding of the historic events in the bible are not christians ...

They were baptized; they are Christians. Their beliefs may not be orthodox, but the Church has yet to make that clear. Let's not bite and devour each other like the Protestants with cries of, He is not a real Christian.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

I fear that you're projecting. Protestants are always "I want the new Nike's."
"Now, don't allow yourself to be fatigued beyond your powers; there's a amiable bein'.
Consider what you owe to society, and don't let yourself be injured by too much work.
For the sake o' your feller-creeturs, keep yourself as quiet as you can; only think what a loss you would be!"
- The very memorable words of Samuel Veller

"Mouth make trouble, mouth make no trouble." - Sun Tzu

"Physician, heal thyself." - Ancient proverb
