He wrote that back when the book was just an idea, many decades from being codified into the most sound and well substantiated theory in science. Even now, abiogenesis is both a separate field of study and lacks the same level of confirmatory evidence.

Judging him a 'creatard' by our standards now is a bit unfair, you cannot hold against him knowledge that he could not possibly have had. I reserve 'creatard' for the purposely ignorant, and Darwin was most certainly not that.

Not to forget that "laws impressed on matter by the Creator" is an extremely deistic thing to say. And the quoted passage is an explicit denial of special creation.

Or maybe Einstein and Darwin really are "creatards". Who knew?

I agree. It wasn't uncommon among the intellectuals of the time to have more of a deistic leaning rather than theistic.

Einstein certainly not a creaturd :O

Darwin certainly started out as a creationist and believed in special creation, right up until he started to explore the depths of natural selection and found it unnecessary.

I don't know if he died an atheist, but he didn't die a Christian.

Thank god!

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Personally I am fundamentally atheist so, yippie!

Perhaps this notion can be firmly presented on a teeshirt or bumper sticker ... ?

It certainly could but I think it is rather attempt to give atheists bad press than insinuating they're nihilists. This term also could be used to discourage atheists from criticizing the believers or/and clergy - it is used in this way in Poland coupled with decrying unbelievers as communists.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

It's like over the thousands of years non-believers have had to suffer the most under the iron fist of religion while religions battled each other about whose is the "truest" and now we finally can express ourselves they're all ganging up on us as a common enemy. Fuck sake. Atheist fundamentalism. What are the fundamentals? Lacking in belief?

I have seen a few I call that. They show the same passion and hate of other beliefs, that Christain fundamentalist show. Want to see it go to Usenet Christain or atheist groups. Both sides show it. Been told the Correct term for those people was New/Militant atheist. To me a persons words and action tell you about them not the Title they are given.
