The same reason creationists largely just try to attack the fact of evolution. They have no positive evidence for their position so they lie about or ignore the boatloads of evidence for evolution. They are nefarious.

This is a hallmark of counterfactual material pushers and I have made this point before. When you see someone attacking the other position almost exclusively and never presenting positive evidence for their position, it is almost certainly counterfactual.
