Creationism and Evolutionism

The NYTimes has a nice essay about the evolution debate. It is part book review, part history of the issue, and part personal discourse. The author rightly mentions that scientists often go beyond the scientific when discussing evolution. There is certainly Darwinism, which goes beyond the acceptance of evolution, and attaches moral significance to accepting evolution. Scientists should be vigilant against those types of assumptions.
