Why Evolution persists

"One wonders why, with all the evidence, the (Godless) theory of evolution still persists. One major reason is that many people have a sort of vested interest in this theory. Jobs would be lost, loss of face would result, text books would need to be eliminated or revised."
(Dr. Emery S. Dunfee, former professor of physics at the University of Maine at Farmington)

Yes, personal reasons often influence a person's philosophy.

Yes, feelings and emotions are very powerful influences. That can work for good or for bad.
