I have seen this so often that I have a red spot on my forehead from smacking it at the willful stupidity or blind ignorance of some.
What is our education system teaching our kids?? Holy Hell! I cannot believe there are people who can't even understand the DEFINITION of the word!!!
Evolution (also known as biological, genetic or organic evolution) is the change in the inherited traits of a population organisms through successive generations. Over time variants with particular heritable traits become more, or less, common. A trait is a particular characteristic -- anatomical biochemical or behavioral -- that is the result of gene-environment interaction.
a : a process of change in a certain direction: unfolding
b : the action or an instance of forming and giving something off: emission
c (1) : a process of continuous change from a lower, simpler, or worse to a higher, more complex, or better state: growth
(2) : a process of gradual and relatively peaceful social, political, and economic advance
Why is it so hard to understand this??? Do people willing put on blinders and want to remain ignorant? Do they blindly believe what people behind a man made wooden pulpit tell them about evolution???
I know this is a rant, but damn!! I just don't understand why it is so hard to understand??
I also don't understand why some find it so hard to believe that God and Evolution CAN go hand in hand!! Oh, wait, I forgot! It isn't in the Bible so it must not be true! (slap on the forehead ... ouch, it's getting redder)
Okay rant over ... Pretty sure there are questions in the rant, but just in case ... why do YOU think people WILLFULLY misunderstand what evolution is?
Beeky hit the nail on the head.

Take a deep breath. HOLD ......and let it out slowly. Better now? LOL.
There are two reasons why some people don't understand evolution. Either they are unable to or they don't want to.
