In addition to original Darwinism, today there are two other versions of evolutionary theory: punctuated equilibrium and neo- Darwinism, a revamped version of the original Darwinism. No matter the variant though, evolution serves as the creation myth for the theological and philosophical worldview of Evolutionary Humanism (Naturalism).
â€œEvolution is a religion,â€ declared evolutionary Humanist Michael Ruse. â€œThis was true of evolution in the beginning and it is true still todayâ€¦One of the most popular books of the era was â€˜Religion Without Revelation,â€™ by Julian Huxley, grandson of Thomas Huxleyâ€¦As always evolution was doing everything expected of religion and more.â€ (National Post, Canadian Edition, 5/13/2000)
â€œHumanism is a philosophical, religious, and moral point of view.â€ (Paul Kurtz, Humanist Manifestos I & II, Introduction)
