The Discovery Institute’s “A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism” has been signed by about 1,000 Ph.D. scientists who agree with the following statement: “We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.” It can be found at https://dissentfromdarwin.org. One quote is from the always-interesting David Berlinski, Ph.D., Philosophy, Princeton University: “Darwin’s theory of evolution is the great white elephant of contemporary thought. It is large, almost completely useless, and the object of superstitious awe.” Of course, even if no scientist disputed evolution, this does not mean it is correct. The Bible says, “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4); and Jesus said, “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes” (Matthew 11:25). But it is a fact that large numbers of smart men and women with higher degrees reject evolution. The Creation Research Society membership consists of more than 600 men and women who hold advanced degrees and are committed to biblical creationism.
