There is a piece in the NYTimes by Robert Wright, trying to reconcile evolutionary biology. He proposes, in effect that if creationists would just accept that evolution happens as it does, and evolutionary biologists would just accept that the universe could have been set up the way it is by a creator who chose natural laws that would lead to organic evolution, we could all just get along. He makes the theistic evolution argument as well as I've seen it made, and I still think it is lousy both in its internal illogic and in its total lack of realpolitik.
The religious aren't about to accept a greatly diminished (or at least distanced) role of God in the universe, and secular scientists aren't going to accept that the fact that there could possibly be some space for God to slip into the cracks that science can't explain yet means that God is a scientifically viable option. Wright's proposed "bargain" wouldn't satisfy anyone, and wouldn't even be more satisfying than the status quo to many people. Wright questions why most people on both sides of this divide seem more inclined to leave it alone than to either argue over it or try to bridge the two views. The answer seems obvious to me: it is not particularly likely that one will either convince someone on the other side, or come to a common understanding, and people have other things to do with their time.
