Thank you, Dr. Atheist Professor, thank you.

Earlier this week I came across this remark, and I found it downright refreshing. It's nice to hear someone else say this every now and then:
I don't want people like Richard Dawkins to be banned from arguing that Darwinism implies atheism, but I do wish that people like him would bother to learn some Christian theology before they presume to pontificate. Dawkins would be rightly pissed off if someone criticized Darwinism without knowing anything about, say, selfish gene theory.
