"Evolution is a law (with several components) that is as well substantiated as any other natural law, whether the law of gravity, the laws of motion or Avogadro's law. Evolution is a fact, disputed only by those who choose to ignore the evidence, put their common sense on hold and believe instead that unchanging knowledge and wisdom can be reached only by revelation."

All created by the mind of man. So naturalistic and materialistic.

I'll grant you that the study of evolution is created by the mind of man (at least on this planet). But the fact of evolution, as Watson describes it, is most definitely not created by the mind of man (unless you wish to defend some form of subjective idealism or even solipsism).

If the guy says it is scientific, why is he romantic about Darwin and don't show facts and logic? The author is talking about Darwinism, an ideology, he is not talking about Darwin and the science itself.

This is the big cult of repent to entitled scientists indoctrination trick.

And as for criticizing revelation, what does this have to do with Darwin? God is a revealed person. We know Him because we know what He will do. Science is about knowing what happened in the past and projecting it in the future into gizmos. They are two different independent concepts which do not necessarily exclude each other.

The author is not promoting science but a cult of repent to the likes of him, and he cannot see that coz he does not know God nor himself and his own unethical conflict of interests to discuss the matter.

In other words, those who do not trust him are liberaly labeled and "romanticized" as people needing some form of mental incarceration he himself in fact needs and is blackmailing sensical good people against.

I believe both reason and faith can co-exist. The world would be an empty and sterile place without their mutual presence.
