I don't think "Darwin Only" will have a padlock on people's minds forever.
His heavenly ministry? I believe I settled that Hell and therefore Heaven do not exist. The Dark Ages ended with the Renaissance, when the public began breaking away from the church to embrace more secular values.
People began taking the Bible less strictly during this period, and science and literature were not so shunned. Especially in Italy, freedom from the Church flourished.
Science is not religious dogma, it is provable anti-religious fact.
I take it you support Creationism, which science has proven wrong once and again? Creationism now needs someone either extremely ignorant or extremely dogmatic to believe.
Science is not a religion but it's strange to me why so many Creationists seem to think atheism is a religion. In the words of David Mills, author of "The Atheist Universe," whenever Creationists point that out they seem to be saying, "Look, you atheists are just as irrational as we are."
Congratulations, you accept the idea of natural selection. Progress.
Some evolutionists can be equally religiously committed to thier unproven ideas.
Evolution is proven. Look at the human-monkey similarity. Look at the finches in the Galapagos that were studied by Darwin.
About the Hubble thing, I in NO WAY said that all Christians were unscientific, unbased, treacherous Creationist idiots. Most scientists are religious. Most advances in science were made by either Christians or Muslims.
My body parts are the result of millenia of evolution, not some sort of God.

Darwin is correct, as proven dozens of times by Christian scientists. Only a huge amount of dogma can contradict that.
