As a science teacher at a catholic school in Belgium -I'm retired now- I could teach evolutionism without problems but I never realized that it had such 'religion annihilating' power. Not that I was a very devout catholic. Since my student years I felt that religion and science didn't fit well together. I suppose I was some kind of deist: God made the world and retreated from it. But when I saw Richard Dawkins giving his christmas (winter solstice?) lectures on TV I saw somebody who understood evolution like I never had understood it. I've bought and read several of his books and now also “The God Delusion”. And “the shells kept falling from my eyes”.
Thank you very much,
