So you think 99.9% of scientists have been somehow conned into believing that human beings have evolved from lower forms without any scientific evidence to support it. In trying to understand how you could possibly arrive that that absurd conclusion I can only guess that you have a very poor understanding of how the scientific method works.<quoted text>
1. Evolutionists have done what Chevrolet, Southwest Airlines, modern literature, and Hollywood have done. They've run a commercial campaign boasting numbers. Chevrolet and SWA bank on the number of customers, claims of being #1. Books and movies are in hopes that they will be bought because of quotes from various alleged qualified critics. As far as we know, Copernican scientists did none of these. The majority of people of who embrace evolution obviously don't really know why, other than they are overwhelmed by the Evolutionary "pitch" (Apparently some people actually think "Inherit The Wind" is about the "Scopes Monkey Trial"). If Evolution was that obvious, it wouldn't have need to have been programmed into us as it has for so many years by the media. As far as we know, Copernican scientists did none of these.
2. Again, not all scientists accept it. There are enough that don't to suggest anyone that they should think a little bit further than their "Star Trek" view of reality. We don't 'force' any scientific view in the legal sense. We choose to 'program' via media/commercialism to "force feed" it.
The scientific method demands valid scientific evidence to support claims. It would be impossible for 99.9% of scientists to be duped into believing something for which no valid scientific evidence exists because valid evidence is the only basis of what they accept as true. They do not accept claims as valid because somebody told them they will go to hell after they die if they do not.
It doesnt matter what Aristotle believed, the point is that in the Roman Empire anything that disagreed with Christian teaching was considered heresy and not allowed, including things that Aristotle said. Secularism in any way shape or form was not allowed. Only the parts of Aristotles philosophy which did not conflict with Christian teaching were allowed. There were no secular scientists in the Roman Empire around at the time of Galileo.3. I think the problem is just your not understanding me. Maybe this question may help in understanding what I mean by "religious based", and then we can go from there:
What religion was Aristotle?
Aristotle rejected the idea that men were spontaneously generated by the earth - William K. Guthrie, Scottish classical scholar, best known for his History of Greek Philosophy
Now that we live in a society that is is not controlled by religious dogmatism you are free to believe in any unsubstantiated creationist theory you choose (there still is a Flat Earth Society)because scientists do not force or propagandize their findings on others they simply give you the facts. Whether or not you believe is up to you.4. AKA "Evolution, best-selling theory in America (or "worldwide" depending on who's being pitched)" -(Fill in the blank with the scientific equivalent of Siskel & Ebert).
5. And this I take it, means there isn't any? Personally, I don't think it's something they want to publicize.
