It seems like evolution is not neutral and that many times people who teach it do so hoping that it will eliminate religion. Richard Dawkins for example when teaching religious students about evolution will say that it can coexist with their faith (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNhtbmXzIaM), while when he writes his published work he says consistently that evolution disproves religion. It seems here that he’s not being honest. Another example would be a fellow Catholic, Kenneth Miller. In his book Finding Darwin’s God, he says that his faith and his belief in evolution can coexist, but he later on calls Genesis myth (interestingly Jerry Coyne attacked him for even believing in God despite the fact that he believes in unguided evolution)
There was also the famous case where science organizations demanded that evolution be taught as an “unguided process.” More than that, even on this site, which I think otherwise does good work, there have been articles basically saying the Bible gets things wrong as a way to make evolution seem more palatable. It was articles by Dr. Peter Enns here that got me to doubt evolution as really being compatible with my faith.
Sorry if this is a long rant, but it’s been a concern in the last year or so and I’d love it if people who are more open to evolution could shed any light for me.
