"that approach now appears to be a fundamental denial of human nature." Duh ...

"And I also now understand why so many evangelical Christians are hostile to evolution. They too, know that evolution impacts everything" I disagree. Generally they don't know anything about evolution except what their preachers and politicians spew. And, generally what they spew is that "Scientists believe we came from monkeys. I don't know about you, but I didn't come from a monkey! Huh, huh, huh ... Surely, none of you believe we came from monkeys! It's a lie!" (I've heard many versions of essentially this series of statements and questions straight from the pulpit.) Then there's usually a little Darwin bashing, science bashing and scientist bashing along with liberal politics bashing. Many time they'll even resurrect Madalyn Murray O'Hair and bat her about for a few minutes, blaming the ills of the country on her. But, of course, now they have many atheists and scientists to bash at their convenience.
