The problem is especially acute in Christian circles. I go to a Bible Fellowship, which is now studying Genesis. The leader got up a few weeks ago and forcefully stated that evolution had been a "total failure." He did so, of course, without a scap of supporting evidence for this claim because there is none. Within the biological community, of which I am part, evolutionary theory as an explanation for biological diversity is almost univerally accepted. The perspective of my BSF leader makes my position increasingly at odds with many Christian groups.
