Their Own Judge
Person X: “supernatural explanations always mean the end of inquiry”
Person Y: “So the appearance of species through time, as seen in fossils, is far from random. … No theory of special creation, or any theory other than evolution, can explain these patterns.” [emphasis in original]
The answer is that Person X and Person Y are the same person. In this case the person is Jerry Coyne but it could be any one of the leading evolutionists because they commonly make these kinds of self-revealing pronouncements. The first statement delegitimizes supernatural explanations and the second statement is a supernatural explanation.
For when evolutionists blame others for being religiously-driven, introducing religion into science, abusing religion, abusing science, misrepresenting the science evidence, being anti-science, and promoting ideas that are science-stoppers, they are, in fact, judging themselves.
Religions drives science and it matters.
