The central issue is whether Christian positions on evolution are driven by willful ignorance.

Depends whether the position is based on Logic, Reason, and Reality or whether the position is based on a belief and a will to proselytize.

But don't beliefs and and desire to proselytise essentially lead to the willful ignorance of that which contradicts?

Re: What Constitutes Willful Ignorance?
I would suggest one leads to the other. And I would argue that EvC demonstrates this constantly.

But it depends how you define "willful" I suppose.

Phat writes:

I suppose the issue is what exactly constitutes willful ignorance as opposed to ignorance or sincere belief in an alternative explanation.

If being willful requires that one NOT believe an opposite then is anyone ever willfully ignorant?
