Evidence that Charles Darwin was not an atheist!
In his own words, Charles Darwin did not reject belief in a god!
“It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist & an evolutionist. … In my most extreme fluctuations I have never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God. I think that generally (& more and more so as I grow older) but not always, that an agnostic would be the most correct description of my state of mind.”
Letter to John Fordyce, 7 May 1879

Dear o dear o dear each of us is GIVEN faith you silly man. It cannot be bought or sold, it cannot be theorised into existence, you can’t steal it or create it or forge it from the elements of the earth. And if someone else does not have it, its not your job to beat them up about it.It is a gift !! Now get off your little self righteous pony and start living up to the gift you were given. You’ve gone a little too far off the path and the good Jesus wants you to stop beating people up with your nonsense and start being more LOVING !! Take care what you offend lest you become personally responsible for them NOT reaching their salvation. Your loving sister Ishi 🙂

A lot of ‘Ad hominem’ here.
Also, when has Simon Peter Sutherland been found “beating people up with” … “nonsense”? Not something that anyone who has ever understood his work or known his manner has said of him.
