The notion that there is "inconsistency" between being a Christian & criticizing "creation" shows the depth of Dawkins' ignorance of religion. It is so because he says so - sic voleo, sic jubeo.

  Letter, Richard Dawkins on the Royal Society row:

   

  http://www.newscientist.com/channel/opinion/dn14748-letter-richard-dawkins-on-the-royal-society-row.html?feedId=online-news_rss20

   

  Excerpt:

  If the Royal Society wanted to attack creationism with all fists flying, as I would hope, an ordained priest might make a politically effective spokesman, however much we might deplore his inconsistency.

  This is the role that Kenneth Miller, not a priest but a devout Christian, plays in America, where he is arguably creationism's most formidable critic.
