I don't think that evolution is in any danger scientifically. I do however dislike the way Dawkin's portrays himself and this could very well affect public relations regarding evolution. Evolution is what it is. It is not how life started on earth (abiogenesis). It is driven by natural selection and geographic distribution. It is simply the process of species development as observed in data collections via genetic, morphological, ecologic, and molecular data. It has nothing to do with the big bang, anything involving astronomy, geology (for the most part), or becoming an atheist. There is a group of people that attempt use this theory to claim a lack of God. This distorts from the true theory of evolution as proposed by Darwin ( A man and not a God).
In addition to this, there is also a group that rejects evolution without any attempt to understand it. This group tends to be very religious. While I am sure that these individuals mean well, this takes away from Christianity as a whole. Does it really matter if "yom" means a 24 hour day or the entire period of the precambrian? Does it really matter if the earth is 4.3 billion years old or 6,000? Would it matter if evolution occurred or things were popped out of nothingness? I fail to see how this changes anything that Jesus did and said. A religion takes faith while a theory takes data. I think that both sides on this debate have a major public relations problem regarding this issue. Do you think that rejecting evolution teaches anyone about Jesus? Do you think that ranting about Atheism causes anyone to become educated? A theory is what it is despite what people try to read into it (On both sides). A religion is what it is despite what people try to read into it (On both sides). It's not that I hate Dawkins or that I hate Hovind, they are both just dead wrong and both distort science. This may sound shocking to you but out of all of the biologists that I have ever met I can only recall one that is an atheist ( A very respectable one as-well). Good luck to you.
