what is good and right is dictated by their bibles, not by science or law. There is nothing to discuss with these people.

A professor of mine, basically a political exile living in Seattle, said much the same thing about his previous life in Saudi Arabia. He analogized the religious conservatives there with those in the States who won't accept evolution.

There's just so much fundamentally different about the way that a scientist will conceive of the world, and the way that a religionist will, that there's no point in even trying to have a conversation. It's not just apples and oranges. One person is talking apples, but the other person is talking airplanes. An evolutionist can't have the most basic of conversations with a creationist, because the ways of thinking about the arguments are irreconcilable at the get-go.
