There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Chance or Purpose? Creation, Evolution and a Rational Faith
| The divine comedy|
The main claim of the book is that science is "incomplete" without
woo spirituality, and that specifically the Christian God (out of all potential deities) is somehow guiding all natural processes.
While Schönborn claims that his views do not conflict with the theory of evolution, his arguments essentially parallel those of your standard IDiot — most notably in his attempts to replace natural processes (read: scientific theories that actually have explanatory power) with "God".
As such, the book has been described not as a scientific, but a religious book — marketed towards Catholics who want to buy the conclusion that their Christianity still makes sense, whilst also (most wisely) accepting evolution.
