Taner Edis was born and raised in Turkey. He is a computational physicist, an associate professor of physics at Truman State University, and the author of The Ghost in the Universe: God in Light of Modern Science and Science and Nonbelief, Science and Nonbelief, Why Intelligent Design Fails: A Scientific Critique of the New Creationism, and other publications.
We rail against supernatural faiths, not just for their palpable falsity, but for their sanctified cruelties, their crippled imaginations, and their all-too-common suspicion of human efforts to better our lives.
A short taste of the long-standing argument between religionists and evolutionists, where it has been, and where it is going. As Edis puts it, "Today, more than a century after Darwin convinced biologists that life had evolved, we still see a raging controversy over creation and evolution. Together with this, we have a large range of ideas about what evolution means for religion."
