    I want to ask those who believe in "Creationism", as it is presented by the American fundamentalist Evangelicals, whether the Biblical Book of Genesis is a biology book or a theology book.

    While they're at it those Evos who live by The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin could also indicate whether it is a science book or a world philosophy book.

    It's a science book.

    You're presenting your question such that if someone said it was a science book, they'd be implying it was not a theology book - which of course all Creationists believe it's a theology book as well.

    Of coarse it is not a science book, however, I would argue that it does not contradict science in any way.

    That can only be true if you don't read it literally.

    Richard Dawkins is turning the theory of evolution into a full grown ideology.

    Correct, Richard Dawkins is the high priest of this ideology ... and he has many devoted followers.

    Are you able to explain what you mean by that? I have recently read his book "The God delusion" and did not get that impression at all. What other books / writtings of his can you recommend which puts forward that view point?

    Er, this is simply not true. The Theory of Evolution can coexist with
    a theistic stance very easily. The only ideology that Dawkins espouses
    is an atheistic one, just like you endorse a theistic one.

    Did you even read the God Delusion?

    I think it is considered a book of law and history.
