Guess I ought to add something to that. A few years ago, the local IDiot, a fundamentalist Christian, retired Professor Emeritus of surgery and urology, published a miserable book, title "Evolution, Creation or Accident", recommended as a gift for Christian teenageres at Confirmation. When someone confronted him with the argument about how humans have genes for a tail, and may even be born with a tail up to 6 inches long, his response was:
"That was unknown to me, but I will get in touch with experts on Intelligent Design in the USA."
But he only rarely respond to criticism and questions, and seems unable to distinguish between OOL and biological evolution.
That's about the situation in Norway, and I think all of Scandinavia is at a corresponding state.
Not only does life not need special intervention by a Creator God, it is a natural, emergent expression of the routine creativity of the universe.
