The other day I asked, "can positing the existence of a Creator be a legitimate scientific hypothesis?"
"The presence of a creative deity in the universe is clearly a scientific hypothesis. Indeed, it is hard to imagine a more momentous hypothesis in all of science." -- Richard Dawkins.
Now, the question is, is this guy Richard Dawkins, considered a reputable scientist by the darwinian community, or will they circle the wagons and shun him?
