Bad Faith (in Science): Darwin as All-Purpose Boogey Man?

Sorry, I don't follow what you are saying. My point is that scientific truth doesn't depend on the character of the people who discover it. Whether Darwin was a saint or a jerk makes no difference to whether his theories stand up to repeatable, empirical validation. Which they do amazingly well.

You can't say the same thing for those behind the pulpit. There is no objective way to analyze whether the Eucharist actually physically becomes the body and blood of christ as some claim or whether its only a metaphor as others claim or whether the spirit of Jesus enters as others would say.

Of course you could test the wine just before its consumed but those who argue for literal transubstantiation find ways around that. What the people behind the pulpit believe is all based on faith and so absolutely is not objective nor testable.
