And by the way, Charles Darwin said that evolution was created by the Creator.

Well, he didn't, not in the way you imply. But that's not the point. The point is: so what if he did? Would that make evolution something less than a fact? What if he recanted his theory on his deathbed (another creationist favorite falsehood)? Wouldn't make it any less valid.

I had to paraphrase that one:

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."  

Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species]

This certainly dispels the myth that Charles Darwin was an Atheist.

Well, neither was Newton.  Physics is religion.

Needing that as the mechanism for the origin of life made it a very religious theory,

The tool doesn't know what "need" means.

and essentially still is.

No doubt why people of all major religions, and of none, accept and use it.

Those who accuse me of having a religious agenda/theory do not know that where the same standard is applied evenly to both sides, the Theory of Intelligent Design I represent is far more scientific than the theory Charles Darwin wrote.

With your reasoning powers, how could it be otherwise?

In fact if Charles Darwin had never been born modern science would look very much as it does now, and we would still have creationists here today, railing against Wallace or whoever else had come to prominence in the early days of evolutionary discovery.

After having read how that concept was explained in a WW2 era German science teacher manual, there is no doubt that it was at least very useful for the justification of Concentration Camps.

No doubt why one Nazi book banning targeted "Darwinism", putting the ban on:  "Schriften weltanschaulichen und lebenskundlichen Charakters, deren Inhalt die falsche naturwissenschaftliche Aufklärung eines primitiven Darwinismus und Monismus ist (Häckel)."

But Gary's schlock was never banned by Nazis, nor was the rest of IDiocy, so it's better.

It was believed that having been originally breathed by the Creator made them a Master Race which did not evolve while evolution turned all others into feeble minded apish creatures who they were obliged to exterminate.

Oddly, missing citation.  

Oh Gary, you're such an idiot.  And we wouldn't have it any other way.
