“A few decades ago, Darwinians and creationists had a de facto nonaggression pact: Creationists would let Darwinians reign in biology class, and otherwise Darwinians would leave creationists alone. [However], afew years ago, such biologists as Richard Dawkins and PZ Myers started violating the nonaggression pact.” ( The Chronicle of Higher Education).

    Well religion IS “an inherently pernicious thing”. At least the ones that insist on making the supernatural part of the mix are.

    I’ve got no beef with Zen or Taoism or even Javacrucianism (whose only rite is to face the rising sun each morning, take your first sip of coffee, and exclaim “God that’s good!”).
