Evolution's Warfare Thesis

Evolutionist Douglas Woodhams admirably promotes conservation of biodiversity, but in doing so reveals the severe warfare thesis streak that runs through evolution. He is concerned about people "with values based on faith, not science," and explains that "Scientists may help convince the religious community" if they can "appeal to people of faith."

This hard dichotomy, with science cleanly sequestered from religious influence and scientific "values" free of any metaphysical impurities, reveals a profound misunderstanding and dangerous under estimation, of the pervasiveness of religious thought. Indeed, far from being free of religious influence, evolution is based on it.
