How can ANYONE dispute the fact that evolution existed?

How can anyone dispute the scientific facts that create a very conclusive argument that evolution did indeed exist?  The only thing we as humans can possibly be sure of are scientific facts.  We can not be sure that God exists, we can not be sure if there are other sentient beings in our universe and we can not be sure that Hillary Clinton is human.  However, we can be sure that fossils have been found of species that resemble humans and share the same DNA as humans.  The Earth is millions of years old.  Humans were not around back then but other species were.  99% of all species to have ever existed are now extinct.  The Bible talks nothing about these species or the fact that the Earth is so old.  Evolution did exist and ignoring facts will not grant you a ticket to Heaven any faster than acknowledging the truth.

Are we all multiple personalities of universal consciousness?

Bernardo Kastrup proposes a new ontology he calls “idealism” built on panpsychism, the idea that everything in the universe contains consciousness. He solves problems with this philosophy by adding a new suggestion: The universal mind has dissociative identity disorder.

There’s a reason they call it the “hard problem.” Consciousness: Where is it? What is it? No one single perspective seems to be able to answer all the questions we have about consciousness. Now Bernardo Kastrup thinks he’s found one. He calls his ontology idealism, and according to idealism, all of us and all we perceive are manifestations of something very much like a cosmic-scale dissociative identity disorder (DID). He suggests there’s an all-encompassing universe-wide consciousness, it has multiple personalities, and we’re them.
