I like this section. In it Lennox says that capital ‘E’ Evolution has undergone mythification and become a substitute for belief in God, and this is not a good thing. As a theist you’d think he’d be in favor of any mythification (excluding those two recent movies starring Sam Worthington and a bunch of CG monsters, which really weren’t that good at all) and evolution should be given its chance to attract a congregation of worshipers and be added to the pantheon of theism, but it seems that some deities are more worthy than others. It can’t be for want of a lack of evidence, can it? I mean, evolution is at least as unobservable as all other gods.
Finishing with that quote from D. M. S. Watson Lennox claims Watson backs up Lewis (are you keeping up?) with evolution “is accepted by zoologists, not because it is observed to occur or… can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible” P97). This quote from Watson is quite well known for appearing in creationist writings, and I’m being a little coy about the quite. Read more about it here at your first port of call that is wikipedia or going to this site provides an entertaining read.
