Professor Heller said he believed, for example, that the religious objection to teaching evolution “is one of the greatest misunderstandings” because it “introduces a contradiction or opposition between God and chance.”

One really needn't work too hard to find clues as to why NYT finds it useful to run such a story.

Separately, let's distinguish, please, between "the theory of evolution" as a cause for the existence of life or species, and "evolution," which is synomymous with "adaptation," as a natural occurance manifested in existing life and species.

Yeah, do you think we're smart enough to make that distinction, academia? Do you, NYT? If I can do it, you can do it. If you want to.

Oh yeah I meant to ad, "there is no contradiction between God and chance." It's another of his tools.

Yes, but most evolutionists are NOT smart enough to made that distinction - or at least they pretend not to be.

I thought about posting the London Times article: Professor wins prize for maths link to God but I thought that the title was borderline sacrilegious.
