Evolution cannot explain existence of creationists, concedes Dawkins

‘It’s a flaw in our argument, for sure,’ said Dawkins today. ‘By any reading of evolutionary theory, creationists ought to have died out ages ago. They serve no function in the planet’s ecosystem, and no other species has survived so long while in such fundamental disagreement with observable reality. If I wasn’t such an ardent believer in secular materialism, I’d wager this is really troubling Darwin in the afterlife.’

Despite Dawkins’ concession, scientists are quick to point out that recent years have seen significant advances in our understanding of the evolutionary history of creationists. Not so long ago biology was unable to trace the emergence of the species in the fossil record, but a seemingly close correlation between modern-day American creationists and National Rifle Association members suggests they descended from a group of early hunter-gatherers who exploited another sub-group naive enough to think a man wouldn’t use deadly force to protect his property – a group that is itself all but extinct except in small British enclaves where Liberal Democrats continue to thrive.

All he's saying is that it's really surprising so many people blatantly ignore the facts of evolution


Also, given that the number of believers has significantly dropped over the past 20 years (according to Gallup), we at least have some hope rationality and logic will prevail

I might be wrong, but are you sure this isn't some sort of political satire?

To me there is little rationality in arguing either side of this issue.

Does being correct going to change how you live your life?

Of course it is satire and it is hilarious ..

I fear you and Prof. Dawkins have overestimated the intelligence of creationists.

I, too, hoped this thread would be overrun with indignant Bible-thumpers. Oh, well...
