Comment 17 by scottishgeologist I've mentioned this before but I'll ask again,. Are the only opponents of evolution the faith heads?

Well, depends what you mean by faith-heads, and by challenging evolution. There are people who challenge the idea all humans originated in Africa, for instance. There are other people who think that humans are not the only species on earth; that there are reptilians (shape-shifters?)... and others I guess. Another belief: that there are sub-species of human. Not races exactly, but more subtly distinguished, and yet to be described fully by science. Some of these people are atheists, if rather quiet and very accommodationist about it, though they have other unusual beliefs. I think they're few in number, but like people who believe in UFOs and fundies, like economists and literary theorists, they have an influence beyond the circle of true believers.
