In June 2022, Armin Moczek, a biologist at Indiana University, told Stephen Buranyi of The Guardian (London), “There are certain core evolutionary principles that no scientist seriously questions.” Richard Dawkins says: “Evolution is a fact, and my book will demonstrate it. No reputable scientist disputes it, and no unbiased reader will close the book doubting it” (The Greatest Show in Earth). This is not true. Dr. Jerry Bergman has compiled a list of 3,000 “Darwin Skeptics,” including about a dozen Nobel Prize winners. Bergman has a private list of about 1,000 names of persons who do not want their names on a public list “because of real concerns over possible retaliation or harm to their careers.” Bergman says, “I estimate that, if I had the time and resources, I could easily complete a list of over 10,000 names” (“Darwin Skeptics: A Select List of Science Academics, Scientists, and Scholars Who Are Skeptical of Darwinism,” Aug. 24, 2014). This is a result of the Darwinists who act like howler monkeys and Nazi SS troopers to try to stamp out every vestige of “creationism” from the field of science. (For documentation, see Silencing the Darwin Skeptics: The War Against Theists by Jerry Bergman.) The Discovery Institute has published “A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism”. On the front page is the following quotation from 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.” As of May 2021, the list had been signed by about 1,213 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.” The book SCIENTISTS WHO BELIEVE THE BIBLE, available in print or a free eBook edition, contains testimonies of nearly 100 scientists and inventors of the 20th and 21st centuries who believe in a literal six-day creation. Most have earned doctorates. We have included selections from their testimonies and writings. Many of these men and women are former Darwinists who rejected it on the basis of evidence.
