He is not wrong about Abiogenesis either, though he could consider whether evolving a nose from nowhere is different from evolving different nose shapes, like Chromosome numbers posing barriers where content of each chromosome or even crossovers between them do not.

And he has a good point about not offending Moslems without necessity. There are Christians who had it back a few years ago, before sept. 11 of A. D. 2001 but ... now?

Not bad here either:

A common reading is that the sciences have become a sort of secular religion, with the Big Bang replacing Genesis, and evolution as a sort of deanthropomorphized god chivying humanity onward and upward. There is a large element of this, yes. The self-righteous intolerance directed by disciples of evolution against religion assuredly resembles the intolerance of religion against heresy. Does this explain the anger of the rooters-out? Is it partly that believers in America tend to be Southern or Catholic, both of which are regarded as politically inappropriate conditions?

...

I suspect that the decline of religion stems less from the advance of scientific knowledge than from the difficulty of discerning the transcendent in a parking lot.
