There is a very large group of Christians (approx 250+ million) who have never had a problem with modern science at all but your not likely to run into them in the US. They aren't well known in the US. These are members of the Eastern Orthodox Churchs. To them modern science isn't a stumbling block.

They break down like this:

Autocephalous churches – 249 million

Russian Orthodox Church – 150 million
