The article discusses the discusses the incompatibility between evolution and religion. It states that scientists are atheists which are linked to advocacy of evolution and reinforcing the conspiracy of repressing intelligent design and were characterized with inaccurate and dishonest strategy to link evolution to atheism. Scientists claim that science and religion have two different domains of human rights and experience as well as ideologies, but scientists and clerics acknowledge that science is obliged to restrict its attention to the natural world. However, evolution leads to a devaluation of human value from the transition of life forms and that life and death are natural processes that follow naturally.
