The question is why are these people under attack if the scientific community is truly interested in open dialogue? The reality is: most people are willing to believe evolution, something they don't truly understand or even endeavor to, simply because it affirms their lifestyle. If there ever was an opiate for the masses, it would be evolution.
When a person in a lab coat proclaims evolution as the explanation for the creation of life, and someone who might know basic chemistry but no more, believes it (takes it on faith), no one balks or criticizes. That theory says we can do what we want as long as we don't get caught. Why wouldn't they latch on to such a self-justifying description of life?
