The New Scientist's Amanda Gefter says that the Discovery Institute has "given up the game and acknowledged that their concerns are religious after all" and that the shift is due not to Richard Dawkins, but to Francis Collins<http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17203-christians-battle-each-other-over-evolution.html>. The Discovery Institute recently launched a website called Faith and Evolution that says that one cannot be a Christian and accept evolution -- Gefter suspects the site is in response to Collins' BioLogos Foundation, which promotes theistic evolution. "The Discovery Institute has now made it crystal clear that they have no interest in reconciling science and religion - instead, they want their brand of religion to replace science," Gefter adds.
