Regarding Darwin, I'm no Darwin expert, but whether or not Darwin believed there
was a prime mover is irrelevant.  His theory of evolution works.

*Darwin offers no theory on the origins of life. (That is one reason why the
'warning' stickers ordered placed on high school biology textbooks in Cobb
County, Georgia, which read 'Evolution is a theory, not a fact, regarding the
origin of living things,' are ridiculous.) Darwin's is a theory of how living
organisms evolve; it is not a theory about how life began.
