I was genuinely interested in this - why would it damage your faith to learn that God used natural processes to create the first life?

Just guessing, but probably because that isn't the was the Bible said it happened. If you take the Bible literally, there is a big problem there.

Newtonian mechanics destroyed the idea of the separate creation of planets in their orbits and the celestial spheres - and Christianity didn't suffer. Lyell and the other 18th Century Christian geologists destroyed the young earth idea - and Christianity didn't suffer. And Darwin and the later evolutionary biologists destroyed the idea of separate creation and the scala naturae - and from what I can see, Christianity hasn't suffered.
I disagree, Quetzal. Go figure
It seems to me that every one of these discoveries has taken its toll.

Nah, those are ones least effected. Those are your conspiracy theorists and your flat earthers

You'll note, I hope, that there seems to be a fair selection of Christians still floating around.
Yup, I have noticed a few. I have also noticed them drifting further and further from the foundations of their religion with each and every discovery. The conflict between what you know and what you are supposed to believe must be awful.

Because of science? Or in ignorance of science?

Scientific discoveries have yet to shake my faith in that science is the interpertation of data, it's all very tenative.
More tentative than a belief system based on no evidence at all?

What discovery would that be, funk? Make up a faith killer for me.
