Michael Dowd remembers the days when he used to show up at events where evolution was the topic and hand out religious tracts railing at anyone who dared believe the Earth was more than 6,000 years old.

Today, the former United Church of Christ minister is a self-described "evolutionary evangelist" -- and one of the most visible ambassadors of a belief that embracing the reality of a constantly evolving universe is a sacred path to uniting all religions into a spirit of cooperation while offering hope for the future here on Earth.

"Evolution is how God is speaking to us today," he said.
