Greg Graffin Greg Graffin was interviewed by the Scientific American in support of his new book Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science and Bad Religion in a World without God, in which he discusses Darwin, science in music, and evolution. Of note is Graffin's comments about how punk and evolution are related:
The idea with both is that you challenge authority, you challenge the dogma. It's a process of collective discovery. It's debate, it's experimentation, and it's verification of claims that might be false. Darwin may have been [a] kind of contemplative and pensive anti-authoritarian.

It's a similar feeling from being in a community of punk rockers as a teenager and the feeling I still get today when I'm in a community of skeptical scientists. The idea with both is that you challenge authority, you challenge the dogma. You challenge the doctrine in order to make progress.
