That's just a pet peeve of mine.
I studied Darwin in pretty fair detail in college and in all fairness, his theory was flawed in many ways, BUT the underlying principles are absolute, undeniable fact. Darwin and many others laid down the foundation for thinking about evolution but at the time, were not able to get all of the details down (genetics and the DNA have gone a long way to solidify and improve the ideas they set down). So, to say that Origin of Species
should be some sort of bible is incorrect, but it does at least of some scientific thoughts. The bible lacks that and is, like he says, open to a lot of interpretation.
I think this song is a positive thing. There are probably a lot more "closet atheists" than we know in the States largely because its NOT seen as acceptable. Hopefully this can help some people know they aren't alone in their thoughts and that if there is a hell, it could be getting a pretty sweet crowd going.
