Re Catholics that form an anti-evolution rump: 27%. Thats the magic number. In any question asked of more than a million people, 27% seem to go down the crazy chute.

Coyne has been pushing this stone quite a bit but as hard as he tries I think it’s more a Sisyphean task than he will admit.

… people who believe in ludicrous things because it makes them comfortable.

I agree this is a correct observation, but it has little value. The problem is that this need, to be “comforted”, is universal, and this need is met around the world through various systems of beliefs, many of which have as corollaries some set of doctrines that touch on where everything came from.

For Coyne to try and plea for humans to be non-religious is for him to plea that humans be non-human.

Coyne keeps beating up on Giberson and especially Biologos (from which Giberson has parted in some ways), but that is too easy.

Creationists are creationists not because Giberson is a religious Giberson nor because Biologos is an “accomodationist” Biologos.

Religion is a fundamental part of culture, an essence of humanity that has evolved over tens of thousands of years.

It’s not going away easily.

Bit of casemaking in there. Tielhard de Chardin was a world-class human paleontologist, and a Jesuit priest, in the 1920s. (Some tried to hang Piltdown Man on him, but he beat the rap.) The church squelched some of his more new-age mystical writings for a while, but it’s all cool now.
