So the best answer to this question is that Wallace always insisted he was a Darwinist but his actual theory and its applications were quite different and deserve a different designation.
This charge is wrongheaded insofar as it presumes to count only naturalistic explanations as those that count. In fact, Wallace profoundly limited the action of natural selection see question Much later this charge was resurrected by Stephen Jay Gould.
Was Wallace a Christian? Wallace rejected Scripture, judgment, and hence redemption or the need for a redeemer. Nevertheless, Wallace was sympathetic to the theistic position generally and was not hostile to Christian spirituality. As discussed in question 23, Wallace was not a Christian. But neither was he a pantheist or, as Martin Fichman claims, a precursor to modern process philosophy or theology.

Henri Bergson, to whom Alfred North Whitehead who first developed process philosophy acknowledged a tremendous debt, left Wallace unimpressed. The problem here is that the Gaia hypothesis is not teleological in the sense Wallace understood the term, i. Was Wallace a creationist? Something came from the outside.
Power was exercised from without. In a word, life was given to the earth. All the errors of those who have distorted the thesis of evolution into something called, inappropriately enough, Darwinism, have arisen from the supposition that life is a consequence of organisation.
He saw no problem with having the natural world guided by intermediary beings.
Our Lord Himself speaks to us in no uncertain terms of the Ministry of Angels, and of the interest they take in Human life. That Wallace was an ardent spiritualist says less about Wallace than the times in which he lived. Wallace believed that the testimony of reliable witnesses based upon detailed observations should also count in the jury of confirmation.
Seen in this light, the contention over spiritualism is better viewed as an effort to negotiate precisely what counted as legitimate evidence rather than as a collection of aberrant eccentrics who merely provide historians comic relief in the otherwise serious and steady march of scientific progress.
Wallace's Social and Political Views: Wallace viewed Homo sapiens as a special creation.
Darwin believed humans to be related to animals, different in degree but not in kind. While both believed humans were descended from ape-like ancestors, Wallace was convinced that those very attributes that make humans genuinely human—their intellect, morality, aesthetic sense, even their soul—was unique.
For Wallace there was a special act of creation with the origin of life, then, as ape-like hominids emerged from the processes of natural selection, something unaccountable by the mere principle of utility happened. Nothing in evolution can account for the soul of man. The difference between man and the other animals is unbridgeable. Why and what is its implication? As a young man Wallace had seen poverty and the intrusive and oppressive effects of powerful elites over farmers in the implementation of the Enclosure Acts in rural Wales.
He also witnessed firsthand working class life and conditions apprenticing with his brother in London. Those experiences stayed with Wallace all his life. He was wary of Marxist militancy and government coercion.

ID is, in fact, politically neutral. For more see Horkheimer on Darwinism. Wallace led the anti-vaccination campaign in England. Does this mean he was opposed to science? Parents who failed or refused to vaccinate their children could be prosecuted. William Tebb enlisted Wallace in the anti-vaccination campaign in
