    Neither Darwin nor advocates of natural selection promote any sort of "religious dogma", rather that religated to those who prefer belief systems over rational investigation and general scientific approaches... and those that don't understand this are doomed to live in the dark ages... too bad they piggy back taking advantage of scientific advances while crying about how evil they are...
