Spot the logical flaw

I just spotted this. .

Someone's logic isn't working. OK, so the theory of evolution doesn't give us reassurance about the afterlife, but neither does heliocentrism or any other scientific theory. That's not what it's there for.

Religion does offer such reassurance, but there's no logical connection between 'I believe in God' and 'I don't believe in evolution', any more than there's a link with 'I believe the Earth goes round the sun' or any other piece of gobbledygook. The author needed to look a bit further.
