Hmm. How many people with Darwin fish decals on their cars do you think could accurately
explain the theory of evolution? It seems to me to be simply a way of poking fun of
religious belief and presenting Darwinian evolution as a contrary belief that somehow
trumps Christianity. Insofar as mounting decals on your automobile to proclaim religious
affiliation is tacky, it might deserve a certain amount of satire, but I don't think the
various parodies are motivated by 'scientific orientation'. I suspect many of the people
who stick Darwin fish decals on their cars are as ignorant of evolutionary biology as they
are of creation theology.
