Keith Miller, the Christian geologist whose words were so egregiously misrepresented by Paul Nelson recently, has an interesting post to the ASA listserv (the ASA is the American Scientific Affiliation, a group of predominately pro-evolution Christian scientists) about Jonathan Wells. Wells is a DI fellow, ID advocate and a Moonie. Miller writes:
I have just learned of a new book by Jonathan Wells — “The Politically Incorrect guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design.” In that book he has a chapter entitled “Darwinism’s War on Traditional Christianity.” In this chapter, Well’s presents himself as a defender of “traditional Christianity” ! Here is a prominent member of Moon’s Unification Church who believes that Jesus’ death on the cross was a failure of his mission, and that Sun Myong Moon is the messiah come to complete Jesus’ failed work, speaking as a defender of traditional Christianity! In this chapter he specifically condemns the theology of people like Ken Miller and John Haught! Wells writes: “In other words, a Darwinian who really, really wants to be a Christian can be a Christian of sorts — just not a traditional one.” No person who accepts evolution can be a traditional Christian — but someone who rejects the centrality of
the death and resurrection of Christ can!
This is beyond words!
Indeed it is.
