The teacher’s name is Doug Cowan and the article refers to Doug as ‘he.’ It isn’t so much the scientists pushing the one possible interpretation of the evidence view as it is zealots who view Darwin as a god beyond question.
Religion, at least Christianity, is a matter of faith, not fact. I do not agree with people who insist that they have demonstrated scientific proof of the teachings of Jesus Christ. That’s not what it’s about.
The only ones I have ever seen who refer to "Darwinism" as a religion are creationists.
They must be the ones "who view Darwin as a god" as the professors and my fellow students in grad school evolution classes certainly did not.
