Hakim Ali is of course absolutely right. I have never viewed evolution and creationism as mutually exclusive concepts. I believe in evolution, and I believe in God, and I don't understand why that is a problem for so many seemingly intelligent scientists and theologians. When Darwin first published his theory it was considered to be blasphemous but come on, we've evolved a little since then, haven't we? Religion has been scared of science since the two parted company centuries ago but the argument between the two conveniently ignores one basic fact; our arguments are limited by human logic and by any definition, God and His actions aren't. No mortal argument can ever prove or disprove the existence of God so let's let scientists continue to unravel the mysteries of the universe without the paranoia that one day they may discover that there is no God because that would itself be a logical impossibility.
