When the high priest comes right out and admits to holding a religious worldview based on Darwinism, I think the point has been proven.
Atheist evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins spoke to a packed auditorium at Manhattan’s Ethical Culture Society Saturday night about his best-selling book, The God Delusion , admitting in a Q&A that followed being “guilty” of viewing Darwinism as a kind of religion…

recently picked up my story about a meeting at Altenberg in July called “Toward an Extended Evolutionary Synthesis” Altenberg! The Woodstock of Evolution?, which is believed will move us a bit away from the gene-centered view. Natural selection is under attack and the feeling is that the really interesting evo stuff has to do with form, which we currently have no theory for. I wondered whether you were asked to participate in the Altenberg symposium and what your thoughts are about a remix of the Synthesis?
Richard Dawkins: The question is about a recent symposium at Altenberg in Austria.
Suzan Mazur: No. It’s coming up in July. I was wondering if you were invited?
Richard Dawkins: Sorry, it hasn’t happened yet are you telling me?
Suzan Mazur: No, it’s coming up in July, to remix the theory of evolution essentially.
Richard Dawkins: About development was it as well?
Richard Dawkins: You asked the question: Have I been invited?
I’m sorry to say I get invited to lots of things and I literally can’t remember whether I was invited to this particular one or not.
