One of the wonderful aspects of science is that it is constantly changing. As a species, our technology has evolved greatly over time. We have discovered many breakthroughs, and more are yet to come. In a nutshell, science is continuously advancing.
Do you know what hardly changes? Religion. Growing up in a Catholic school, I was taught the same thing every single year for 12 years. It makes one wonder if theists are actually afraid of change.
No breakthroughs have been discovered in religion. There is not a shred of evidence, or even reliability in the belief that prayers actually work. No new ideas have been proposed to further "improve" religion. It is the same every year, with only minor changes such as "the mass can be spoken in english" or "women can speak at the lectern".
In fact, the only changes made to the Catechism of the Catholic Church are on the topic of ethics. The Magisterium only changes doctrines once they are considered socially unacceptable (i.e., gay marriage, slavery, misogyny, murdering of non-believers, etc). It seems that to preserve the faith, the Church is stagnant unless criticized.
This brings us back to the original question: are theists afraid of change?
