turns out to be a “theistic evolutionist”?
Astronomer sees room for God in sciencesThe two are not wholly exclusive, Christian scientist who won lawsuit says
Gaskell, who studies supermassive black holes at the University of Texas in Austin, said he considers himself a “theistic evolutionist”: a Christian who accepts Darwin’s theory along with evidence that the earth is billions of years old.
“We believe that God has done things through the mechanisms he’s revealing to us through science,” he said. He has also written that evolution theory has “significant scientific problems” and includes “unwarranted atheistic assumptions and extrapolations.”

Okay, so Gaskell didn’t fall down and worship the Beard.
This is just a Yank remake of the much better Britcom, Michael Reiss, Sinner in the Hands of an Angry God. But a useful warning about supposing that the Darwinists and their friends are out for anything other than blood and your grandchildren’s legacies.
