Darwin is no more worshipped than Einstein, Copernicus or Galileo.<quoted text>
I'm not a YEC. I don't worship Hovind like how you evos worship Darwin.
However while even most creationists have accepted the Earth is not flat nor the center of the universe (and have some special apologetics for that to boot) there are still some which have not yet come to accept the reality of evolution. They therefore attack a scientist who has been dead for 150 years whom the main thrust of his work has since been scientifically vindicated.
We would defend Newton in the same manner if people attacked the theory of gravity so. But he would no more be "worshipped" than Darwin, he is simply recognized as someone who made important contributions to science.
Thankfully not all Christians are so ignorant.
