Charles Darwin and Joseph Smith?

"Charles Darwin is often known as a man eager to destroy faith and tear down religion,” Michael Whiting, an associate professor in integrative biology at Brigham Young University told a student forum at the largely Mormon university in Utah, Tuesday. “Often these are the same detractors who paint Joseph Smith and the history of the church with a similar paintbrush. But this caricature is not true to the record. Certainly the ideas that have come from Darwin have had a profound influence on religion and continue to do so.”

Whiting continues:

“I know who’s responsible for the creation, but my research focuses on learning something about how it was done,” Whiting said. “I seek to learn something about the creator by studying creation.”

Apparently, this Mormon professor has no problem integrating evolution with his faith.
