Christians who attempt to reconcile Christianity with evolutionary theory
must be a tiny minority indeed. It is clear that the authors say there is no
need of God in order to know how things came to be. I saw some of them on
C-SPAN this weekend. Although they give lip service to "religion" it is
clear that such views are tolerated but not held in high esteem.
