It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

Boo, hiss, hiss, lol....just kiddin'.  I am a Christian and I see him as a paradox.  I remember watching Creation with married actors Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly playing the the lead roles of Mr. Darwin and his wife.  They were both Christians, which didn't surprise me when you think of their passion for knowledge however eschewed it can be.

There's Zoloft, Welbutrin, there's Paxil that's proven, no side effects.  But the rest left unnamed 'cause they worked like a charm on me. (The Answer)
