Has Evolution Become a Religion? Empty
PostSubject: Has Evolution Become a Religion?   Has Evolution Become a Religion? EmptySun Jun 22, 2008 5:01 pm

I was interested in the following quote from an article posted in another forum (of this board).

"The powerful irrational emotions underlying "A Natural History of Rape" and other similarly reductionist theories indicate how close the mania for evolutionary psychology comes to religious fundamentalism. While the Christian fundamentalist takes the Bible as his foundational text, insisting on the most literal interpretation, so these new scientific fundamentalists insist on the most doggedly literal interpretation of their chosen "text." Here the "words" are not those of the Hebrew scriptures, but the codons of the DNA chain -- which take on for them an almost divine status."

I tend to agree. It is fine to make conjectures about human and animal origins based on observations, but scientific certainty requires an ability verify our hypotheses. There is no way to go back millions of years to trace the evolution of homo sapiens from earlier primates. Without that ability, any projections back any further than written history are vague at best, a guess at worst. But these evolutionists create elaborate scenarios about the past and make sweeping generalizations based on a few fossils.

Is evolution really based on evidence or has it become an ideology?

I find interesting the growing rift between feminists and evolutionists. Will evolutionism subsume feminism?
