For example, how would the title question of the thread differ with other disciplines?
  What are the number of psychologists, anthropologists, sociologists or economists who are TE? My guess is *far* less than the number of biologists in America!!
  Is there any room for a category called NTE's - non-theistic evolutionists??
  Does this in any way change ASA peoples' confidence in the supra-rationality of TE views and their relevance for science (, philosophy) and religion discourse?
  To me, one of the most provocative and cutting edge thinkers on the debate over origins and processes of (human) existence is an agnostic-ID-evolutionist with a propensity for telic thinking. He is neither caught in the rut of previous creationist nor evolutionist ideology. Yet, the absence of theological relevance in his approach is what is most lacking.
