Phillip Johnson: Compares Darwinism to the Soviet Union

Quote
Darwinian evolution with its blind watchmaker thesis makes me think of a great battleship on the ocean of reality.  Its sides are heavily armored with philosophical barriers to criticism, and its decks are stacked with big rhetorical guns ready to intimidate any would-be attackers.  In appearance, it is as impregnable as the Soviet Union seemed to be only a few years ago.


-- Phillip E. Johnson, "Darwin On Trial" (2nd ed.), p.169.
