Why is a fundamentally religious idea, a dogmatic belief system that fails to explain the evidence, taught in science classes?
Why is a fundamentally religious idea, a dogmatic belief system that fails to explain the evidence, taught in science classes? Karl Popper, famous philosopher of science, said “Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical [religious] research programme ....” Michael Ruse, evolutionist science philosopher admitted, “Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.” If “you can’t teach religion in science classes”, why is evolution taught?, creation.com/notscience (Sourced from 15 Questions for Evolutionists)
 Popper, K., Unended Quest, Fontana, Collins, Glasgow, p. 151, 1976.
 Ruse, M., How evolution became a religion: creationists correct? National Post, pp. B1,B3,B7 May 13, 2000.
So, the famous Karl Popper admitted that “Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical research programme.” A “metaphysical” program?
Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary Online tells us metaphysical means “of or relating to the transcendent or to a reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses, supernatural.”
Evolutionists claim Biblical Creation cannot be taught in schools, regardless of whether or not it is true, because it does not rely on science, but upon the supernatural. How is it a leading evolutionist of his time could admit evolution is NOT a testable scientific theory, thus making evolution NOT science, but is instead a metaphysical (reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses, supernatural) program and evolutionists still claim evolution is science, and do so with a straight face and actually expect anyone to believe them?
How is it this admitted metaphysical theory about history, a religious idea and dogmatic belief system, is taught as science in science classes?
Eminent philosopher of science, Michael Ruse spelled this out even more clearly when he said, “Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.”
If religion is not allowed to be taught in public schools, and not allowed to be taught in science classes, then why is the religion of evolution (in evolutionist Michael Ruse’s own words) being taught in our science classes? Scientifically inquiring minds want to know.
