Also, you mention the Harvard logo. Harvard's official emblem simply says "Veritas", which means "Truth". I believe what you might be thinking of here is the fact that at the time of their initial founding, their emblem said "Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae", which means "Truth for Christ andthe Church". But the ironic thing is that they have since dropped the "Cristo et Ecclesiae" part. Essentially distancing themselves from the church, and relying on the simple meaning of "Truth" instead.

Also telling is the fact that there are entire departments at Harvard devoted to the study of Evolutionary Biology.

Guess how many departments are dedicated to Creationism?
Well, what do you think the purpose of stevieray's post was? I took it as a statement that religion and education aren't inherently opposed, and perhaps when combined, lead to preeminent centers of enlightenment and understanding.
