Coyne has argued that Darwin’s theory of evolution is consistent with Christianity and that “intelligent design isn’t science, even if it pretends to be.”

    Very depressing. Coyne is a really good guy– an excellent person, a solid scientist, sincere in his faith, an effective and sensible advocate for evolution, one of those who (to take the words of your earlier blog) “light up the darkness”. This is not an enlightened move, to say the least.
