No, as any good born-again Darwinist knows, being "on the side of the 
angels" means being *unambiguously dead wrong*--because it's a phrase 
used by Benjamin Disraeli in 1864 to berate evolutionists: "The 
question is this: Is man an ape or an angel? Now I am on the side of 
the angels." Wrong, Benji. No positive reinforcement for you, sir.
