Debate:Evolution: Error or Lie?
While we can all agree that evolution is untrue, the question remains: did Darwin, like many scientists, have a new theory that just happened to be untrue, or was he deliberately perpetuating a hoax? And what about those who have embraced his theory?
I guess there are examples of both. There are certainly examples like the piltdown man that were deliberate hoaxes, but I'm sure there are also many people who believe in evolution merely from legitimate misunderstanding and close-mindedness, not realizing that they are duped. So what is the prevailing reason for evolutionism, especially concerning Darwin's role? Do most professors actually believe this, teaching what they think is the truth (it seems they should know better), or are they deceiving an entire generation because of some sort of hatred of Christianity?
