The claim that the Darwinian establishment holds such a view of TE, rather than merely claiming that some individuals hold this view, is dubious. If Darwinian is definied as someone who holds that the scientific evidence supports evolution and that this implies atheism, then Darwinians are a noisy but very small minority of those who study evolution. If Darwinian is defined with regard to acceptance of evolution as scientifically valid, then many Darwinians overtly reject that view. At the Paleontological Society short course on creation and evolution (1999), the lack of fundamental conflict between evolution and theistic views was strongly emphasized. Steve Gould and Eugenie Scott are among the most prominent unbelievers who nonetheless clearly reject such derogatory views of theistic evolution.
