Evolution article at American Wiki

There is an article located here http://www.conservapedia.com/Evolution that cites quite a few prominent evolutionary scientists who were atheists.

nozzferrahhtoo, By the way, if you could please find me a notable legal scholar, jurist, or lawyer who has argued for the existence of Thor, Santa, Fairies, or unicorns, using rigorous standards of weighing evidence I would be indebted to you. :D At this time, however, I found your post to be lackin...
