Furthermore, this has the effect of blinding this deviant minority to the ‘factual’ support for evolution from biology and paleontology.
Richard Fortey is a senior paleontologist at the Natural History Museum, London, and the author of several books.
The writings of Daniel Dennett, a philosopher, ultra-Darwinist and committed atheist, epitomize this attitude: “But hasn’t there been a tremendous rebirth of fundamentalist faith in all these creeds?
Yes, unfortunately there has been, and I think that there are no forces on this planet more dangerous to us all than the fanaticisms of fundamentalism….”“In attacking ultra-Darwinism in this way I want to make it absolutely clear that I have no intention of departing from a materialist view of life, nor of giving any ground at all to anti-Darwinian fundamentalists, creationists or New Age mystics of any shape or hue.” The intended impression is that fundamental, Biblical views equate to bigotry because of their insistence on ‘unwarranted’ interpretation of Genesis (or believing the Bible at all).
As with any ploy that attempts to relegate the status of creationists from that of true scientists to ‘quacks’, the writer hopes that the creationists’ scientific pronouncements will then not be seriously considered.On the one hand, they clearly have a deep respect and love for the Bible, which I unreservedly applaud.But theirs is an approach that appears to fly in the face of the scientific evidence…the creationist movement remains powerful, especially in the USA.A reasoned refutation of evolution has become so difficult that the opposition is now largely confined to fundamentalists, those who believe in the literal truth of the Bible, and specifically in Gen.: “And God created man in His image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” This leaves little room for argument.
He concurs: Creationists, it is asserted, not only have a blind faith in the Bible but are equally blind to the ‘truth’ of evolution that is staring them in the face.
