Chapter 4. Evolutionists' Confessions Stating that They Espouse the Theory of Evolution for Ideological Reasons
Numerous scientific findings in the second half of the 20th century and the current century have clearly and definitively revealed the invalidity of the theory of evolution. As stated earlier, even the world's most prominent evolutionists are well aware of this. Indeed, despite their blind devotion to their theory, they still admit that the theory faces impossible quandaries. That being so, why are some scientists so determined to support the theory, even though they know full well that it is unscientific?
As discussed in the Introduction, the reason for scientists' devotion to the theory of evolution lies in their ideology. Evolutionists do not behave like real scientists at all and persist with their ideology despite all their experiments, observations and research. The basis of their ideology is their belief in materialism, which obliges them to deny the existence of Allah. That is why, even though all the scientific data clearly and irrefutably show the existence of a sublime Creator, a Lord of all, these materialist and evolutionist scientists still deny that Allah exists. However, they make unequivocal statements in this point as well, just like they have made on all subjects, and do not hesitate to confess that all evidence points to the existence of a Creator and the flawless creation brought into being by Him, though their ideology makes it impossible for them to admit this.
