Today, Darwin’s theory is not professed due to strong evidence for it, rather, it is for sociological reasons: “this is simply the way educated people are expected to think these days.”1 Professors and media outlets are not being intentionally misleading, it is just that Evolution provides the framework and worldview in which they think about life and the universe.
“Bluntly, Darwinism’s icy grip on modern intellectual life is based on shoddy philosophy, not science.” 1
Words that fill evolutionary literature which provide evidence of non-scientific conclusions are prefaced with many terms such as:
we assume, we believe, we find, perhaps, are thought to, indicates, emerges, explanation, infers, the appearance of, the process, surmise, speculate, propose, postulate, deduces, derives, attributes, basis, belief, imagine, must have, rationalize, thesis, theorize, conjecture, guess, demonstrate, apparently, we know this or that (based on assumptions), we determined, presupposes, model, starting point, scheme, suggests, hunch, hypothesize, premise, supposition, suspicion, fancy, surmises, accept, have confidence, conviction, faith, hope, derives the idea, judgement, notion, opinion, position, sinking suspicion, thinking that, view, get the feeling, predict, estimate, or speculate.
