View from the Pulpit: Michael Ruse

Well more of a quote but here you go;
I have spent much of my life fighting Creationism, and I know that there are many reasons -- legal and otherwise -- as to why it should not be taught on the public tab. But what was brought home to me vividly this last week is that the greatest crime is blocking our children from seeing what a wonderful world in which we humans live and how (for those of us who are religious) God's greatest gift was giving us the abilities to discover this world, however strange and terrifying it may seem at times. Remember the parable of the talents. Don't hide them in the ground. Use them that they may multiply and that their fruits may be enjoyed.
From here.
