    because of this mind reading ability you seem to have

    Evolution is not an issue for most Christians. They have accepted the overwhelming evidence and adapted their theology. Evolution does not require atheism.
    It is a beautiful fact. It is beyond sensible dispute. Only Muslims in and Protestant Evangelicals are still fighting against it.
    The wilful ignorance that is required to do so has no place in an age of freely available information.

    So? The above statement is correct.

    If you want to find a creationist ask an evangelical or a muslim.

    Ask a Muslim ....

    The theory of human evolution, namely that man descended from apes, is widely accepted amongst non-Muslims although there have been many non-Muslim scientists, atheists included, who argue that it is flawed. As an opinion, it was wholly rejected by all Muslims as it goes against their basic knowledge that Allah created Adam with his own hands, from clay, in the physical form of a human being, and then breathed life into it.

    "Scientism" is a word used by silly people who fear evidence.

    Silly people like Karl Popper and Hilary Putnam?

    So do you deny the very existence of scientism?

    Define what you mean by it IN YOUR OWN WORDS - no links or copy-paste - and then I will answer your question.

    Scientism = claim of scientific method being universal and the only valid method of knowledge.

    Followers of scientism always demand scientific evidence to anything.

    And deny any existence that cannot be scientifically detected.

    For example?

    Sorry cofty but scientism is well defined by philosophers of science.

    I mentioned two famous philosophers of science who wrote about scientism.

    Scientism is bad as creationism.

    Eliminative materialism is an example.

    Consciousness cannot be scientifically detected so it does not exist at all.
