Radio host Thom Hartmann would not be swayed from his agenda: paint all opposition to evolution—including scientific opposition—as religion. Strategy: get Casey Luskin of the Discovery Institute to admit he believes God created the world and then triumphantly sneer away all his arguments as invalid. Great plan, except it didn’t quite work.
Even if the objections to evolution turn out to be completely wrong, that wouldn’t change the fact that they’re scientific objections, not religious ones. There may be religious implications, but so are there religious/worldview implications if evolution is affirmed and not objected to. This misunderstanding of the issue is frustratingly widespread.
