I grew up believing in this [evolution] Myth....But the Myth itself asks me to believe that reason is simply the unforeseen and unintended byproduct of a mindless process....[T]he Myth thus knocks from under me the only ground on which I could possibly believe the Myth to be true. If my own mind is a product of the irrational, how shall I trust my mind when it tells me about Evolution?

We cannot find any logical and adequate solution of the sin-question in the five Classics of Confucianism, the Vedas of the Hindus, the Zend Avesta of Zoroastrianism, or the Koran of Islam. When Joseph Cook...at the [first] Parliament of [World] Religions in Chicago [1893] challenged the priests of the ancient religions to answer Lady Macbeth’s question: “How cleanse this red right hand?” all the priests were dumb.
