We admit that we are like apes, but we seldom realize that we are apes.
Richard Dawkins

The Evolution Deniers are the idiots who continue to propogate The God Theory despite their failure to prove any parts of it over 2,500 years.

The Evolution Denier is someone who can see 150 years of clear scientific evidence on evolution confirming that Charles Darwin was right when he wrote "On The Origin of Species" and decides to ignore it because it conflicts with his religious views.

Denying evolution is to deny the scientific method and calls honest, unbiased people liars. We have a culture of accepted ignorance in this country when it comes to evolution, and it is abominable to me that people are respected and cheered for their denial of reality.

They are idiots, not unlike the Flat-Earth people, who ignore the Theory of Gravity and cannot understand meteors or asteroids except as Divine events.

They are idiots like those people who still believe that the Heavens revolve around the Earth and continue to ignore Galileo's discovery in 1615, not to mention the Hubble telescope.

The Evolution Denier is someone who strives to remain ignorant of hard reality and prefers to live quietly with their imaginary sky fairy friend, called God, Jesus, Elohim, Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah or Harvey (the pookah).

The Evolution Denier is someone who may have studied ancient history but cannot understand that his/her god is no different than the, Aztec, Mayan, Inca, Anastasi, Egyptian, Greek or Roman gods. These are all imaginary gods.

Evolution is a fact, and it is among the more secure facts known to science. All that we have seen and tested in 150 years has confirmed the concept of evolution. The following branches of science all confirm evolution: anthropology, biology, microbiology, molecular anthropology, molecular biology genetics, biochemistry, paleontology, archeology, entomology, embryology, geology, plate tectonics, astronomy, and cosmology.. More than anything else, modern genetics confirms all aspects of evolution.

Religion cannot accept Evolution simply because it blows Genesis out of the water and destroys their imaginary world to bits and pieces. This constitutes a complete failure to deal with reality.

I am stupefied by the extraordinary dullness of these evolution deniers. They are lazy uncurious, bigoted, slovenly half-trained learning-resistant people who are only ten hairs away from being baboons that create a large amorphous blob of institutional autism called religion in our society.

It is true is that evolution tests faith. The fact of evolution is incontrovertible and supported by mounds of empirical evidence. Faith, on the other hand, is fragile. It is supported only by the strength of human will. And this is where it gets tricky. Because to many believers, faith, not works, is the only guarantee that one can pass God's litmus test and gain access to His divine kingdom. To lose one's faith is to literally damn oneself. So tests to that faith must be avoided at all costs. Better to be a philosophical coward than a theological failure.'"

To a believer, faith is a virtue. Indeed, the highest virtue. And evolution may not challenge God's throne, but it challenges a highly held belief that God created man as the apex of life on Earth. To suggest that man holds no special place amongst the beasts - that our rationality was not the spark of divine creation but the machinations of blind terrestrial navigation belies the idea that God places us first among all his creations.
