Darwin OK But Overrated?

Salvo editor James Kushiner over at Mere Comments:

The St. Darwin Lobby will not be happy with this Time interview with British political journalist Dennis Sewell on the 150th Anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species (November 24, 1859). Asked about whether he was concerned that his ideas "will be trumpeted by the creationist movement." Sewell replied: "Science is a big enough interest group. It can look after itself." He doesn't dispute Darwin's biggest idea, but notes his errors and also how bad people have used (and continue to use) Darwin.
