    > Pigliucci is of the Dawkinsesque "evolution proves atheism" camp. As he agrees with the bad theology of many design claims, his review is probably not the best reference. His views are sufficiently extreme to actually get some non-theist no conflict folks to respond (to use Tim Ikeda's categories).

            OTOH this review shows what an easy target claims like those of Wells make for scientists who want to shoot down Christianity. Parading claims like those of Wells is like walking around with a "Kick Me" sign pinned to your back.
