Paul speaks of men “who suppress the truth” (Rom 1:18). John Blanchard writes: “Although countless scientists today hold to divine creation, Colin Patterson is right to claim that in many cases, ‘post-Darwinian biology is being carried out by people whose faith is in, almost, the deity of Darwin.’ If God is a non-starter, evolution seems to be the only show in town, and all scientific data must somehow be made to support it, even if the usual rules of assessment have to be suspended. Harvard geneticist Richard Lewontin is perfectly frank about this: ‘We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs…because we have a prior commitment to materialism…Moreover, that materialism is absolute for we cannot allow a Divine foot in the door.’ The University of Chicago’s L.T. More makes the same connection: ‘Our faith in evolution depends on our reluctance to accept the antagonistic doctrine of special creation.’” — Evolution, Fact or Fiction? p 12
