cite a lot of Christians who accept evolution through natural selection
as opponents of "Darwinism." This is very misleading."
The purpose of the definition was to do exactly that, rule out "a god."
One needs to have words with which to communicate -- I think they have
done a good thing in defining (tightly) what it is they are talking
about. The fact that the word "Darwinism" admits of other definitions is
understood, but really not pertinent.
The list is a simple one -- assume the "Darwinism" definition they make,
and the following persons have a problem with the concept it defines. Use
their definition, or my suggested change -- the point is the same.
