It seems that displaying saints would indeed be a quick way to spread a
generalization of a abstract concept, but it always seemed to me that
sainthood in this church was hard to come by. (considering we only had one,
and that was darwin). Maybe some sort of tiered system. We could use
seraphim as a level, this would enable us to recognize Darwin as a vital
founder, and still recognize others who may not have contributed as much,
but are still important.
