      These denominations and faith groups seem to fully understand how we come to know things through science, and they accept the methodology and the results. They show this acceptance in different forms of doctrinal declarations and social statements. These are not my opinions. The doctrines described in those articles are referenced in the Scriptures and said to be essential by putting a warning with them if they are denied or not affirmed. They are the basics of Christianity and real Protestant Churches and Denominations all hold to those essentials. Let's deal with these first, since this is the largest mega-bloc (+ "denominations" of the total +). These are broken down into various large groups, and their lists and numbers span from the bottom of p through p and most of page I'm not going to type all of these since the list is quite long -- much longer than any.
