...oh and another thing...
a few weeks ago, I caught a part of a PBS series talking about atheism and here's what I found when I googled:
"PBS TV Stations to Air Three-Part Documentary on Atheism"
The documentary, "Atheism: A Rough History of Disbelief" travels through history and discusses the ever dwindling belief in the existence of God. I'm not sure which episode I watched, but they talked about how Newton's laws enabled people to look at the universe in a more physical and less mysterious/spiritual way. They had only gotten to around late 1700's by the end of the episode I watched, and I'm assuming they wouldn't disregard Darwin...
Anyway, I'm going to try to watch the whole thing. Most of the episodes can be found on YouTube...but they might be removed for copyright infringement...so try to watch 'em fast :)

In conclusion, I applaud PBS for attempting to broaden people's horizons and for offering a different side of the story.
