There are also some atheists who, using evolution, push their own beliefs on to people ie... their own "religious dogma".

Having studied history a bit, I tend to think humans use what ever they can to forward themselves. They have used religion in the past and present to forward their own ideals twisting it to suit themselves and gain power that way. If you look back at history mankind uses all sorts of means and methods to manipulate others for personal gain, power and greed.

Science too is being "used" this way in present times too, whether you like it or not.

Seems one thing stays the same as humans we never learn from our previous mistakes.

Climbers are a pretty funny lot, we all have our own opinions over what we do and aren't afraid of telling others they are wrong. Yet we criticize others for doing the same?
