Evolution Disbelief is Fuel by Fear of the Uncertain
Today, most Ph.D instructors in life-science related fields conclude based on the overwhelming body of evidence that evolution was the process of changes that took life on Earth from unicellular life, to multicellular life in all its grandeur -- including man. Yet, 44 percent of respondents to a recent 2007 Gallop Poll of U.S. citizens stated that they believed that God created man in its current form (pure creationism) and 44 percent stated they believed God guided human evolution (intelligent design).
A new behavioral science study performed at the University of Amsterdam and published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Experimental Social Psychology offers fascinating clues as to why some people may disavow evolution.
Intriguingly, while many people believe religious reasons to be the driving factor, for many people it appears that fear of randomness and uncontrolled circumstances is one of...
"Evolution Disbelief is Fuel By Fear of the Uncertain"
Aside from whatever "Fuel by Fear" is, I would suggest it is evolutionists that have fear of uncertainty.
My reasoning may be wrong, but it seems that it is evolutionist longing for certainty that leads them to claim their view is based on "overwhelming body of evidence," when it is mostly composed of unscientific speculation, especially in the area of macroevolution. In spite of what they may say, they desperately need certainty in their worldview, so as not to be threatened by a God who would hold them to account.
Here is a strange phenomenon, most people who believe in evolution arenâ€™t scientists and they like most of us have no real understanding of the science that goes into this theory. Now why would billions of people believe in something when they have absolutely no idea why they believe it? And yet, these non-scientists who believe what these scientists tell them have the audacity to belittle and ridicule those who donâ€™t believe in evolution. Laughingly they even refer to themselves as logical and enlightened over and against those who disagree with them. What logic and enlightenment does it take to believe something that you have absolutely no idea is true or false except for what others tell you is true? I only wish these folks would simply sit down and ask themselves what motivates them to believe what they believe. Once they do that, perhaps they will throw themselves at the mercy of the Creator of the entire universe and all it contains and repent before it is too late.
