Apparently you don't have to be ignorant to be an Evangelical

Given the conventional wisdom that Evangelical Christians have to be somewhat ignorant to hold conservative religious beliefs, you can imagine my shock to learn that the lead scientist on the Human Genome Project, Frances S. Collins, is a self-described Christian Evangelical.

He has a new book entitled, The Language of God, and I heard him being interviewed on The Diane Rehm Show recently. If you have time and care to, you can listen to that interview here.
