The Guardian on "Fundamentalist Secularists"

Even The Guardian sees the growing "fundamentalist secularist" phenomenon, which overlaps substantially with Darwinian fundamentalism:
"You have a triangle with fundamentalist secularists in one corner, fundamentalist faith people in another, and then the intelligent, thinking liberals of Anglicanism, Roman Catholicism, baptism, methodism, other faiths - and, indeed, thinking atheists - in the other corner. " says Slee. Why does he think the other two groups are so vociferous? "When there was a cold war, we knew who the enemy was. Now it could be anybody. From this feeling of vulnerability comes hysteria."

It is the moderate part of the triangle that is increasingly curious and open-minded about intelligent design, and it is becoming increasingly skeptical of Darwinian dogma. This article gives further support to my analysis in this post.
