Fantastic to see Dawkins weighing in here. It's not just about evolution. That is just a symptom. It's about having a person in the most powerful job in the world - who will not accept scientific facts, if it clashes with his own, unprovable, religious belief system. Even though, in a subject like medical treatment, the guy will accept whatever the scientists say.
Strikes me as very similiar to the Governing Body - who will accept proof from secular sources for 539BCE, then disregard that very same source when it comes to the 587/607 dispute.
