There is a reason why evolutionists refuse to admit that their theories are worthless. Their statements, quoted below, explain what this reason is. This is science vs. evolution—a Creation-Evolution Encyclopedia, brought to you by Creation Science Facts.

CONTENTS: Evolutionists Explain Their Objectives

1: They do not want to be responsible for their actions
2: They want to be separate from God
3: They want sexual freedom
4: They want a way to hide from God
5: They want to live like animals
6: They want knowledge apart from God
7: They want to destroy religion

This material is excerpted from the book, HISTORY OF EVOLUTIONARY THEORY.  An asterisk ( * ) by a name indicates that person is not known to be a creationist. Of over 4,000 quotations in the books this Encyclopedia is based on, only 164 statements are by creationists.
You will have a better understanding of the following statements by scientists if you will also read the web page, History of Evolutionary Theory.

There are reasons why evolutionists are so concerned to hold on to a theory which was never proved in the first place, and has been repeatedly disproved since then. These are important reasons. This section is an important one, for it explains why these men cling so fanatically to a falsehood.

Objective 1: They do not want to be responsible to any one for their actions.

"[Man] stands alone in the universe, a unique product of a long, unconscious, impersonal, material process with unique understanding and potentialities. These he owes to no one but himself and it is to himself that he is responsible. He is not the creature of uncontrollable and undeterminable forces, but he is his own master. He can, and must, decide and manage his own destiny."—*George G. Simpson, "The World into Which Darwin Led Us," in Science, 131 (1960), p. 966.

Objective 2: They want separation from God and identification with the brute.

"The real issue is whether man must think God's thought after him in order to understand the world correctly or whether man's mind is the ultimate assigner of meaning to brute and orderless facts . . Evolutionary thought is popular because it is a world view which facilitates man's attempt to rid himself of all knowledge of the transcendent Creator and promises to secure man's autonomy."—*G.L. Bahnsen, "On Worshipping the Creature Rather than the Creator," in Journal of Christian Reconstruction, 1 (1974), p. 89.

Objective 3: They want sexual freedom.

"I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning; consequently assumed it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption . . The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics; he is also concerned to prove there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do . . For myself, as no doubt for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom."—*Aldous Huxley, "Confessions of a Professed Atheist," Report: Perspective on the News, Vol. 3, June, 1966, p. 19. [Grandson of evolutionist *Thomas Huxley, *Aldous Huxley was one of the most influential writers and philosophers of the 20th century.]

Objective 4: They want a way to hide from God.

"Darwinism removed the whole idea of God as the Creator of organisms from the sphere of rational discussion. Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any new form of life, there is no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution."—*Julian Huxley, "At Random, A Television Preview," in Evolution after Darwin (1960), p. 41.

Objective 5: They want to live like animals and not mind it.

"In the world of Darwin, man has no special status other than his definition as a distinct species of animal. He is in the fullest sense a part of nature and not apart from it. He is akin, not figuratively but literally, to every living thing, be it an amoeba, a tape worm, a flea, a seaweed, an oak tree, or a monkey—even though the degrees of relationship are different and we may feel less empathy for forty-second cousins like the tapeworms than for, comparatively speaking, brothers like the monkeys."—*George Gaylord Simpson, "The World into Which Darwin Led Us," Science, 131 (1960), p. 970.

Objective 6: They want knowledge apart from God.

"With this single argument the mystery of the universe is explained, the deity annulled, and a new era of infinite knowledge ushered in."—*Ernst Haeckel, The Riddle of the Universe (1899), p. 337.

Objective 7: They want to destroy religion.

"Beyond its impact on traditional science, Darwinism was devastating to conventional theology."—*D. Nelkin, Science Textbook Controversies and the Politics of Equal Time (1977), p. 11.
