To dispell some of the mystery about the late Dr. Gould:

He came from a family of old-line Marxist agitators, he was raised to be an atheist, and he took that belief in with him when he became a scientist.

So its not science that turned Gould into an atheist; atheism is a belief that he had previously, which he tried to further justify through his science.....

OK.

Did anybody claim Gould became an atheist because of evolution?

One day soon some of us will be sipping from the River of Life in Heaven while the rest of these Evo-chimps are scorched for eternity in Hell.

I wonder if they'll really, really feel that their choice of rebellion against God and His perfect Word was worth it then.

Go figure, huh? I guess it's worth it to pretend for a very short period that you know much more than God.

And that's the funny thing. Being wrong if one is a Christian costs one nothing (with the possible exception of having tried to live an exemplary life based upon one's Faith in Jesus Christ).

Those who kneel instead at the altar of Darwinism cannot say the same... what they risk for their twisted belief-structure (if they are wrong) is hardly worth the effort.

Pass the barbecue sauce...
