<i>His theory of natural selection in 1859 provided a simple,<b> non-supernatural </b>explanation for how life on earth had evolved and continues to evolve.</i>

It is never mentioned that Darwin was an extremely religious Christian and believed in the supernatural .

He was not defying God , but trying to understand God's methods.

And , I think he succeded(sp) in doing that .

Darwin was concerned with CHANGE ; not Creation. As with Christianity , it was Darwin's followers who misunderstood - - or deliberately mis-stated his claims .

Darwin had no idea OF a 'GENOME' and made no claim of such .

To Darwin , I propose that he would have considered it Divine .

He was also a theologian.

Though he did come to the idea that complexity can emerge from a natural process without the involvement of intelligence, which relegated God to the sidelines as far as science was concerned.

I love how the Web site tells Public School Science Teachers to hand the Darwin stickers out as rewards. I have a special place in my heart for folks who cause trouble for the establishment. :-)
