Why do some people believe in evolution

Your beliefs affect your perception

Ever mistaken a coat in your wardrobe for a ghost?
If your answer was yes then you certainly believe in ghosts. But why do people who don't believe in ghosts never make these perception errors?

Its because we see the world through the lens of our beliefs.

In my previous article How your beliefs affect your perception i explained how people get to see things that doesn't exist just because they have certain beliefs that they eagerly want to protect.

Even the most intelligent human being can become completely stupid when defending a belief that he had for a long period of time. Its not uncommon to find a person who eagerly tries to defend a certain belief even if he has no evidence to support it. (see How do people twist the facts to support their beliefs)

But why do people do so?
Why would someone defend a belief with all the power he got even if he doesn't have any clues to support it? Simply because that person needs to believe in that thing in order to remain mentally healthy.

Why do some people believe in evolution

All well educated people know that there is no sure proof for evolution yet some people hang on to certain studies and defend them fiercely because at the back of their minds they don't want to think of any other possible scenario.

If human beings didn't appear on earth as a result of evolution then they must have been created, that's how an evolutionist thinks and that's why he eagerly tries to eliminate that possibility.

In other words, those who don't believe in creation will do their best to make their beliefs about evolution stronger just to prove that human beings weren't created.

Religious people on the other hand will do the opposite thing, they will try to prove that evolution never happened because by doing so they will be supporting their Core beliefs about God.

Both parties do it incorrectly when they try to support their beliefs. They just stick to incorrect facts or ones that they are unsure of just to prove that they are right.

In other words a person who defends evolution is usually a one who wants to defend his beliefs about creation because he is too afraid to explore other possibilities.

After all if involution was proven wrong then this means that this person was led astray for years and this is something that many people can hardly accept.

How to find the right answer (whether its evolution or anything else)

You must understand that as human beings our minds make intentional perception mistakes just to favor our beliefs and thus you will never find the right answer before you become fair during the evidence collection process. (see also How do people lie to themselves)

I personally did this years ago when i started to search for the truth and not for evidence that supports my beliefs. I was too open to all possibilities and i didn't let my Ego interfere with the information i was collecting. (see The psychology of self deception)

In the end i came to the conclusion that this world was intelligently designed by a creator and that evolution is nonsense.

If you are blindly defending a certain belief then know that deep inside you are too afraid to explore other possibilities.

The book "I Saw God" was released by 2knowmyself, The book provides scientific evidence that prove the existence of god, with levels of probabilities that are not subject to debate or revision. The facts are crystal clear and 100% scientific; after knowing these facts, you'll come to the conclusion that there is no other possibility other than the presence of a mighty creator who planned this all.

2knowmysef is not a complicated medical website nor a boring online encyclopedia but rather a place where you will find simple, to the point and effective information that is backed by psychology and presented in a simple way that you can understand and apply. If you think that this is some kind of marketing hype then see what other visitors say about 2knowmyself.
