Tim Bradley Posted about 1 year ago Richard Dawkins: Militant atheism Kathryn, I agree with you. Unfortunately, creationists have been attempting to marginalize science (evolution is just the "poster child" that they have chosen to attack most vociferously) for quite some time now, in part by trying to portray creationism as real science, i.e. "intelligent design". ID has been shown to be creationism with a name change. Introducing it into public school science classes is unconstitutional--not that that stops them. Creationism as religious belief is not a problem. Creationism masquerading as science is. Dawkins is simply saying that we don't have to apologize for keeping the forces of ignorance at bay.
