Rick Warren: The Serpent Who Hates Science

"From the very beginning of creation, God gave man dominion over all that was made, even over the dinosaurs."
Warren's recorded remarks about science, available on the Saddleback's revised site, are very important for a couple reasons. Throughout his teachings, Pastor Rick reminds his followers that

  Melissa Etheridge, are you listening?

This recording shows that Warren wants his followers to be nice while evangelizing to shift the view point of the scientific community away from science and towards a New Earth fundamentalist thought process (not to say that you can't believe in God and in science). 

More importantly, this snippet demonstrates that Warren feels that he and his followers should act nicely towards non-believers, gradually bringing them around to thinking along a fundamentalist lines, to "change" their ways of thinking.
