Sir David Attenborough splats creationists

So you believe in a benign and loving god, do you? Attenborough says he's asked all the time why he doesn't give credit to God:

"They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds.

"I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in East Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball.

"The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs.

"I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator."

And this quote should be carved in a mountain someplace:

"Evolution is not a theory; it is a fact, every bit as much as the historical fact that William the Conqueror landed in 1066."
