I am trying to understand your need to constantly make reference to a book written by men as proof of it's incorrectness. (Origin of Species was also
written by men.)
Why just take on board Darwin's ideas without critically assessing them.
Remember, Darwin was a Theologian, a follower of William Paley (Fundamental Creationist), who turned his back on this. He suffered pain and loss in
his life--three dead children and daily incapacity.
Referring back to Darwins intellectual and religious roots, Judas Iscariot did the same thing. So, in a milder fashion did Job, King David, Solomon
He still sits in the 'Biblical' tradition of those who turn away/backslide/apostasize.
Darwin makes great claims about how complex objects, which appear to be created, could come to be without being created.
This is of interest to a wide range of individuals. Not just atheists or 'Scientists', but artists, engineers, craftsmen.
I have worked with my hands in the past, and I engage in 'creative' activity through painting, media work etc.
Darwins (and all atheistic) claims are puzzling and challenging, because it goes against everything that I do, everthing I see and everything I use.
Riddicule is unworthy, yet so many atheists stoop to this. What has it to do with scientific rigour?
Darwin had dignity. His followers have little it seems.
