I’m mystified why non-believers have such an obsession with believers. If more people believe in creationism, will inflation, unemployment, crime, etc., etc. rise? I can’t recall being taught anything about creationism in school so, like others have pointed out, it’s not like any time is being taken up with religion during classes.

As for the argument that all the scientists that matter believe in evolution, we’re we just told that all the scientists that matter believe in man-made global warming? Forgive me if I’m skeptical.

Finally, doesn’t Dawkins claim that genetic mutations that add information to the genome are caused by natural selection? I read that somewhere but it’s seems too absurd for a scientist to suggest such a thing so I don’t know if it’s an authentic Dawkins stance.

Atheism is a religion and it requires faith — LOTS of faith. (Contrary to what atheists portray, they don’t know everything and they know they don’t know.) We believers shake the atheist faith to its core. So they can’t just let us alone to worship God — they have to try to remove Him from our lives so we don’t constantly remind them of the risk they’re taking that they *might* be wrong.

Of course this is no mystery to the Almighty, since He is the one who put the need for Him in everyone. :-)

Dawkins is (to borrow from the Bible) a fool. (the fool has said in his heart there is no God) And if Dawkins is a fool those who believe in him are fools as well. IMO in the Founding Era men understood that there is no competition between Science and religion..as James Wilson taught from Philly the two are twin sisters.When any tries to say the created (science) is greater than the Creator (religion) they are bound to fail.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

As you stated, “I’m mystified why non-believers have such an obsession with believers. “

Answer: The non-believers wish to destroy the faith of the children of the believers.

Answer: The very goal of the government temples of indoctrination ( misnamed “schools”) is to separate children from their parents.

Macro evolution is important in science to **ONLY** ( yes! ONLY) those handful who are actually working in that branch of science. How many could that be? ...At best a few hundred?

The rest of science has **NOTHING** to do with macro evolution in its day to day processes or even in the training it takes to work in one’s field of science.

I have a doctorate in a health field. Honestly, no time whatsoever was spent on evolution in high school, about 1/2 hour on the undergraduate level, and NO TIME AT ALL was given to macro evolution on the graduate school level! NONE!

Geeze! How did my patients manage to live? How did this nation ever manage to invent plastic, develop ICU care, or build the Golden Gate Bridge? /s

The same is true for my husband who has a Ph.D. in biochemistry, and who worked **intimately** with biochemical human processes for an entire career. No time in high school, 1/2 hour in college, and **NO** time whatsoever on the graduate level was devoted to macro evolution.
