Some guy once wrote that there’s nothing new under the sun. He must have had political conservatives’ pro-Darwin arguments in mind.
Razib Khan explains why “evolutionary biology is nothing for conservatives to fear,” since “it is one of the crowning achievements of modern Western civilization.”
“If you actually believe we evolved out of the primordial soup and through happenstance got here, by accident, then our lives literally have no meaning.”
It’s telling that one kind of evolution always seems to be missing from these “theories” about the evolutionary origins of religion.
Imagine a scenario where you don’t know the ancient age of the cosmos, but rather, only that it has an age, whatever that might be.
