David Attenborough on Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life

According to the Radio Times, Attenborough gets hate mail from creationists over his views.

DA says: “They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator.”
