Seems like a reasonable definition except that it is not clear how to
easily refer to those like Dawkins and Coyne that not only accept
"Darwinian evolution" but also hold to philosophical naturalism. I have
tended to use "Darwinism" for that purpose since the "ism" postfix is
often used to refer to world view or religious beliefs.
