Following the quotation from Michael Ruse, Marcio says:
> Very interesting conclusions from someone who doesn't consider himself a
I see Ruse's comments as an expression of: a) a desire to protect science
from being kidnapped and held hostage by any religious worldview, whether
theistic, agnostic or atheistic, 2) a judgment that that a lot of
worldview-driven nonsense has come to be falsely associated with science,
especially with the concept of evolution, 3) a desire to see more
substantive discussion about what well-informed science and honest religion
might contribute to one another, and 4) the confidence that his personal
worldview need not be protected by a program of misrepresenting or
exploiting science to say what it does not or cannot say.
Looks like an excellent model.
