This paper has been archived based on the recommendation of Yaqeen Institute's newly appointed Editorial Review Board, whose task it is to continually review our past publications and bring them up to date with our standards. We remain open to publishing robust treatments of the challenge posed by the science and ideology of evolution (which are themselves evolving and being actively revised in the academy).
