            Religions are an obstacle for people to accept the theory
of evolution.  The reason of it is the
verses which in holy books contradict with science about creation of world and
human .  According to the these verses ,  there are different  stories about creation of humans in Islam and
Christianity. If we first consider how humanity began in Christianity ,  the first human representation  according to Bible comes in verse 26 of
Genesis 1: “Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to
our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the
earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”.  In this verse ,the first  human was created with fully formed by God
without common genes with animals in 6 days . But , science claims a completely
different opinion.  In his 2004 article ,Stefan
Lovgren  states that ” Scientific evidence
shows that the universe was actually formed about 13.7 billion years ago, while
the Earth was formed around 4.5 billion years ago. The first humans date back
only a hundred thousand years or so.”( para.50).  When we compare these 2 different opinions ,
we cannot find  any common points
between Bible and science. Also same situation happens in Islam. According to Qur’an,
” Verily We created man from a product of wet earth; then placed him as a
drop (of seed) in a safe lodging; then We fashioned the drop into a
clot, then We fashioned the clot into a little lump, then We fashioned the
little lump into bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it
another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators!” 23:12-14.  In Islam we see the different story about
creation . This verse tells us humanity was made by mud and about process of
formation of the human body. The things described in this verse do not match
the information that evolution gives us . The evolution theory tells us  our bodies are the result of millions of
years of process and also very complex organisms. It claims that there is no
relation between mud and our bodies . Thus , in holly books no information
related to evolution has been given and people who read holly books cannot find
anything about evolution theory and so people are deprived of this knowledge
and they become anti-evolutionist.. Also , accepting theory of evolution seems
sinful behaviour for religious people.


            One possible explanation as to why people refuse to
believe evolution is poor education system. National curriculums have done very
poor job in the field of teaching students about this theory. Many
students  have wrong beliefs and if it continues
like this may be these children never reach scientific knowledge. In his 2016
article , Casey Luskin clearly states that “… Unfortunately, most
biology classrooms teach a one-sided, pro-Darwin-only curriculum that censors
serious any scientific critique of neo-Darwinism. This makes for bad science
education. It doesn’t teach students how to think, just what to
think.”  (para . 32). Unfortunately
, Luskin  is quite right in his deduction
for this matter. Students do not learn evolution exactly because of  dogmatic items enter education systems instead
of scientific knowledge. Also , these lessons are taught by people who do not
dominate the subject, or give false information in the direction of their
ideological purposes . In both cases, giving lessons can have worse
