Evolutionists always claim that the reason why they believe in Evolution and reject creation is due to "evidence". They frequently use the opposite term "no evidence" in relation to any type of intelligent design, or creation, (and especially to Genesis creation and flood history !).
Their advocated beliefs always tend to include whatever is necessary to believe in to intellectually "explain" the existence of the universe, world, and its creatures without needing God). They always claim that these beliefs (no matter what they are) are "backed by evidence" ; "overwhelming evidence" etc, repeat, evidence; etc, repeat, evidence; etc..
However I think that their principal reasons for embracing evolution often have more to do with other factors than mere "evidence". This thead is about a discussion of some of these other reasons.
*Note: By "Evolution" (capital "E") I mean the complete evolutionary naturalist version of history (molecules to man), not merely "evolution" in the limited sense of mere biological "change" (which of course everyone including Biblical creationists accept).
