I know the above was asked with tongue-in-cheek, but in fact evolutionary
biologists and Satanists are regularly equated (along with "secular
humanists") in creationist writing. The teaching of evolution is supposed
to be a part of a larger plot intended to corrupt modern civilization and
entice us all into eternal hell. I am not exaggerating.
In light of this daily, mean-spirited slandering of practitioners of
evolutionary biology, I think some of the comments recently made here on
TAXACOM are surprisingly mild.
