This article from the Institute for Creation Research speaks for itself, and doesnt really need whole a lot of commentary added to it. I just wanted to share with my visitors here one of the best articles I've come across recently that shows, USING THEIR OWN WORDS, that atheistic evolutionists know full well that evolution is not just a scientific endeavor; it's an attempt to stamp out belief in God. In essence, it is a replacement, secular relgion, an attempt to provide atheists (and agnotics perhaps) with a way to rationalize away the existence of God. No God, of course, means no one that we're accountable to -- which is really at the core of man's desire to try to eradicate the existence of God.

Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. . . . Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today. 8
We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, . . . in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated commitment to materialism. . . . we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.10
