Fun fact: Conservatives and the right seem to prefer applied sciences in general over other, more theoretical sciences. The scientific field with the highest amount of conservatives is engineering for example. This might have multiple reasons, for example that purely applied sciences don’t lead to discoveries that might endanger someone’s worldview (this is why in many more theocratic islamic states engineering is the overwhelmingly favored science in universities) and the fact that public opinion on “purely theoretical” sciences is always relatively low in comparison (too complex, doesn’t create anything to use, buy or make life easier, at least that’s what many seem to think), while engineers are looked upon favorably in most cultures (which sometimes leads to them developing Dunning-Kruger symptoms of overestimating their own competence).
That aside, we have applied the theory of evolution in many fields, not just biology (where we have shown evolutionary processes in the lab multiple times already by the way): In informatics for example, evolutionary algorithms are used for self-optimization. We even used selection (unknowingly) before Darwin ever came up with his theory, that’s what domestication and breeding is all about. So yeah, what you are saying is bullshit OP.
