Evolution can not explain the existence of creationists, concedes D...

 

‘It’s a flaw in our argument, for sure,’ said Dawkins today. ‘By any reading of evolutionary theory, creationists ought to have died out ages ago. They serve no function in the planet’s ecosystem, and no other species has survived so long while in such fundamental disagreement with observable reality. If I wasn’t such an ardent believer in secular materialism, I’d wager this is really troubling Darwin in the afterlife.’

 

Priceless.

Well that's good news indeed.
Doesn't evolution eventually get rid of what is inferior and is no longer needed?
It's true in a general sense, but not absolutely true. Think: atavism.
Does anyone know to what extent evolution effects intellect? I know that cognitive abilities that ensure our survival tend to be dominant but I really don't know how it applies to intellectual prowess, if it even does.
It is a well known fact that apes evolved from creationists.
Talk about a quantum leap!
