The “D-Word”

A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about words that particular minorities find offensive and asked what label atheists might consider offensive. Over the weekend, I discovered the answer.

I guess it has been a pet peeve of mine for a while, but I just didn’t think of it at the time I wrote that blog post but it always pisses me off when theists call people “Darwinists.” This is an attempt by creationist to lower the scientific theory of evolution to that of a cult follower.

No, I don’t worship Charles Darwin and I don’t accept everything he said without question.  I do acknowledge that Charles Darwin was the first to make an observation which changed the way we think about biology. At a time when religious believers were even more violent than they are today it took great courage on his part to publish his theory knowing that it would refute many claims made by the religious and would certainly cause great hardship to him and his family. But I still don’t worship the guy.

Christian apologists like Ray Comfort and his boy toy Mike Seaver try to discredit Darwin with claims of racism, being anti-women, and even being a Nazi sympathizer are not only not true but also irrelevant. Hitler could have discovered the theory of evolution and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. The fact is that mountains of data show that evolution is a fact and that only thing disputed in science by actual scientist who study this type of thing are the details.

So from now on when a Creationist call you a “Darwinist” stop them right there. Don’t let them get away with it. Make them identify you as someone who accepts the massive amount of scientific evidence in support of the theory of evolution. Don’t let them use the D-Word.
