In this chapter, the author reflects on his conversations with the creationists and laments their insularity and scientific ignorance. He recalls attending a conference called “Darwin vs. Design,” held in March 2007 in Knoxville, Tennessee. It was devoted to intelligent design, a softer version of creationism born of various pro-evolution court decisions during the 1980s. The author had a discussion with a woman about science, religion, morality, and the Bible. In particular, he mentions the woman's argument that the resurrection of Jesus is history. Another woman claimed that God will grant the author an awakening and that he will come to Jesus and that they will meet again in heaven.
