Comment 17 by scottishgeologist :

I've mentioned this before but I'll ask again,.

Are the only opponents of evolution the faith heads?

Or are there any other people out there who oppose it but not on religious grounds? I could imagine some "Erich von Danekin" type supporters might claim that the diversity of life is due to a massive alien experiment

But seriously, is it just the faith heads? Are their any atheist sceintists who oppose it?

The only one I’ve ever heard of is David Berlinski: philosopher/mathematician/molecular biologist (?). He’s a Fellow at the DI but, nevertheless, describes himself as an agnostic.

Hard to say if he’s sincere in his creationism or if he just likes being a smug contrarian. His debate with Hitchens is still on Youtube, I believe.
