Jerry is absolutely right. Good science teaching, and advocacy of good science teaching, should be religion blind and simply concentrate on the evidence for evolution, as Jerry's own book does.

The NAS and NCSE should ignore the implications, one way or another, for religion. Whether or not the evolutionary picture is consistent with orthodox Christianity, or Zeus worship, or the cult of the ultramontane Juju, is not a matter that science organisations should purport to decide.
