    Following the quotation from Michael Ruse, Marcio says:

    > Very interesting conclusions from someone who doesn't consider himself a
    > Christian.

    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.
