Darwinian Theory Faces Serious Opposition

Scientists are unsettled about the claims of settled science

A growing number of scientists are banding together to insists we challenge Darwinian theory.

Thank GOD!  It’s about time!

The following is taken directly from the A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism website:

During recent decades, new scientific evidence from many scientific disciplines such as cosmology, physics, biology, “artificial intelligence” research, and others have caused scientists to begin questioning Darwinism’s central tenet of natural selection and studying the evidence supporting it in greater detail.

Yet public TV programs, educational policy statements, and science textbooks have asserted that Darwin’s theory of evolution fully explains the complexity of living things. The public has been assured that all known evidence supports Darwinism and that virtually every scientist in the world believes the theory to be true.

The scientists on this list dispute the first claim and stand as living testimony in contradiction to the second. Since Discovery Institute launched this list in 2001, hundreds of scientists have courageously stepped forward to sign their names.

The list is growing and includes scientists from the US National Academy of Sciences, Russian, Hungarian and Czech National Academies, as well as from universities such as Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and others.

“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.  There is scientific dissent from Darwinism. It deserves to be heard.”

Below, you will find the list of the more than 1,000 dissenting scientists (as of February 13, 2019), and further below, you will find a video to help put a few faces with the names.



Now that we have a substantial number of scientists willing to confront the religion of evolution from a scientific perspective, maybe we can open the debate to include to prospects of intelligent design.

  1. It makes you wonder when the media is going to report on this. It was only a theory in the beginning and look where we are now. One man can make a difference for better or worse. Jesus made a difference for life. Darwin chose to reject God’s creation.
