Anthropologists disagree among themselves about any partciular application of evolutionary explanation. Yet they tend to accept without question the general idea of evolution. The data of evolution can be shown to be either borrowed or generated by the assumptions. The uniformitarian assumptions of an existent order can be shown to be inconsistent with an attmept to explain the origins of that order. Evolution succeeds only in deifying nature by placing within it the inscrutable mystery which is beyond science and the human mind. Its deifying treatment of material nature is a value position and not a scientific theory.
