I'd say that religious people don't want evolution to be true because it means that we were created through a somewhat random process (genetic mutation) and an undirected (at least by a higher being) process (natural selection) so we are arbitrary beings. We are therefore not special, not the chosen species. Add to that that there isn't any absolute morality. And also that when we die we just die.

So there is a lot of incentive not to accept evolution. It has too many scary consequences if you want there to be divine justice and an afterlife.

Seriously folks what can be done about this stuff?

Is there no way to legally stop all these charlatans from practicing?

It does seem crazy that these days in the so called age of science these people are allowed to fleece the gullible public.
