I fear it is somewhat like trying to understand the jihadis. Friends have told me that, to understand jihadis, I must try, at least briefly, to see the world as they do. Similarly, to understand Darwin's most committed followers, I must undergo a similar mental exercise.

Not quite.  To understand the jihadis you must enter a religious state of mind somewhat like your own, only with some real oppression behind it to fill your mind with hatred, fear, rage, embarassment and violence.

To understand "Darwin's most committed followers", on the other hand, you must join the reality based world.
