Please note that I said many "Main Stream" evolutionists, such as the ones we typically see promoted by the media...i.e. Richard Dawkins.
I have two questions; how many mainstream evolutionists can foxdog name, and why is media promotion relevant to what mainstream evolutionists believe?
I wonder if Foxdog could inform me as to the religious belief of the following, mainstream evolutionists:
Richard Fortey Pat Shipman Alan Walker Peter Grant Rosemary Grant Olivia Judson Kenneth Miller Ian Tattersall Richard Leakey Mauve Leakey Mary Leakey Lewis Leakey John Gillespie Donald Johanson William Ryan Walter Pitman Jeffrey Schwartz Mark Perakh Stephen Gould Donald Prothero Douglas Futuyma Jennifer Clack
The reason I ask is that the subject of the religious belief of any evolutionary researcher never came up in my studies of evolutionary biology. As a result, I am aware of the religious opinions of the above scientists only if they have chosen to make their beliefs known outside of any discussion of evolutionary biology. That is true only of Kenneth Miller and Stephen Gould, as far as I know.
If Foxdog (what an appropriate name for a discussion of evolution) knows of other mainstream evolutionists who claim to be atheists, then please tell us. From my own experience, I encountered few evolutionary biologists who claimed to be atheists. As I recall, the topic never came up because it was irrelevant.
