2. How aggravating -

 

Some of this is good. It talks about how belief creates bias and impairs scientific objectivity ... then it goes off the rails.

"evolutionists" do not believe points 1,3 & 5 as listed above.

1. Natural Selection & the Big Bang are orthogonal/independent theories.
2. Fossils do not show the great geologic ages, but the rock strata they are found in do.
3. This is eugenic theory - which tries to back up a moral belief with scientific data. In fact that notion about humans being the "highest" animal comes directly from christian teachings and has impaired Darwinian theory from the beginning.
