A religion requires faith, belief, veneration, ritual and worship.<quoted text>
Richard Lewontin is an American evolutionary biologist, geneticist and social commentator.
A leader in developing the mathematical basis of population genetics and evolutionary theory, he pioneered the application of techniques from molecular biology such as gel electrophoresis to questions of genetic variation and evolution.
Lewontin helped set the stage for the modern field of molecular evolution.
In 1979 he and Stephen Jay Gould introduced the term "spandrel" into evolutionary theory.
Lewontin strongly opposes genetic determinism, especially as allegedly expressed by sociobiology and evolutionary psychology.
...but you disagree, so he's an "idiot"...
hmmm hypocrite much?
I am at a loss to locate the high altar of evolution, is there an 'evolutionists' mass I can partake in? What is the form and order of service?
Who do I as an 'evolutionist' venerate?
It requires no faith to accept evolution, and there is no sanction from the deity of the evolutionists if I don't.
Religion is the sole preserve of the religious and yet they try to factionalise into religions everything and anything which shows religion itself to be false and dogmatic.
"Oh you're a 'Darwinist/evolutionist'" . I don't meet up with like minded 'Darwinists/Evolutionists' to solidify our worldview with a vegetarian prayer breakfast and some mantra-meditation. That nonsense is the religions department.
