Here is the truth about Darwinian Evolution (Darwinism) directly from Leading Darwinists themselves. Let’s review the truth about Darwinism that Leading Darwinists proclaim about Darwinian Evolution and draw some deductions from what we learn so that we can come to an informed conclusion about Darwinism.
Truth about Darwinism from Leading Darwinists
Franklin Harold, Emeritus Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Colorado State University stated; “we must concede that there are presently no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations.” (Harold, Franklin M. (Prof. Emeritus Biochemistry, Colorado State University) The way of the cell: molecules, organisms and the order of life, Oxford University Press, New York, 2001, p. 205)
Paul Davies a British-born, internationally acclaimed physicist, writer and broadcaster, who holds the position of Professor of Natural Philosophy in the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at Macquarie University, Sydney admitted; “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.” (Davies, Paul, Australian Centre for Astrobiology, Sydney, New Scientist 179(2403):32, 2003.)
Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard, said, “we don’t really know how life originated on this planet.” (Knoll, Andrew H., PBS Nova interview, How Did Life Begin? July 1, 2004)
Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, wrote, “Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.” (Crick, F., What mad pursuit: a Personal View of Scientific Discovery, Sloan Foundation Science, London, 1988, p. 138.)
Richard Dawkins a British ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author wrote, “biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.” (Dawkins, R., The Blind Watchmaker, W.W. Norton & Company, New York, p. 1, 1986)
Richard Dawkins also said, “[Darwinian] Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed while it’s happening.” (pbs.org/now/printable/transcript349_full_print.html>, 3 December, 2004)
Harvard paleontologist (and Darwinian evolutionist), Stephen Jay Gould, wrote, “The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology”. (Gould, Stephen Jay, Evolution’s erratic pace, Natural History 86(5):14, May 1977)
Gould also wrote, “the maintenance of stability within species must be considered as a major evolutionary problem.” (Gould, S.J. and Eldredge, N., Punctuated equilibrium comes of age. Nature 366:223–224, 1993)
Dr. Marc Kirschner, chair of the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, stated: “In fact, over the last 100 years, almost all of biology has proceeded independent of evolution, except evolutionary biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, have not taken evolution into account at all.” (As quoted in the Boston Globe, 23 October 2005)
NAS(USA) member Dr. Philip Skell wrote, “Darwinian explanations for such things are often too supple: Natural selection makes humans self-centered and aggressive—except when it makes them altruistic and peaceable. Or natural selection produces virile men who eagerly spread their seed—except when it prefers men who are faithful protectors and providers. When an explanation is so supple that it can explain any behavior, it is difficult to test it experimentally, much less use it as a catalyst for scientific discovery.” (Skell, P.S., Why Do We Invoke Darwin? Evolutionary theory contributes little to experimental biology, The Scientist 19(16):10, 2005)
Because Darwinism is so malleable as to accommodate almost any conceivable observation, science philosopher Karl Popper, famous philosopher of science, said “Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical [religious] research programme ….” (Popper, K., Unended Quest, Fontana, Collins, Glasgow, p. 151, 1976)
Dr. Philip Skell also wrote, “It is our knowledge of how these organisms actually operate, not speculations about how they may have arisen millions of years ago, that is essential to doctors, veterinarians, farmers ….” (Skell, P.S., The Dangers Of Overselling Evolution; Focusing on Darwin and his theory doesn't further scientific progress, Forbes magazine, 23 Feb 2009; http://www.forbes.com/2009/02/23/evolution-creation-debate-biology-opinions-contributors_darwin.html)
Michael Ruse, Darwinian evolutionist science philosopher admitted, “Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.” (Ruse, M., How evolution became a religion: creationists correct? National Post, pp. B1,B3,B7 May 13, 2000)
Deductions Drawn from Leading Darwinists about Darwinian Evolution
With no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical or cellular system, having only a variety of wishful speculations, nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell thus we don’t really know how life originated on this planet per Darwinism. Not knowing how life originated on this planet per Darwinism, we also with Darwinism must constantly keep in mind that what we see was not designed, but rather evolved and always remember that biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose. One must remember too that although Darwinian Evolution hasn’t been observed while it’s happening, it encounters an extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record and the maintenance of stability within species must be considered as a major evolutionary problem. (Note that all claimed “transitional forms” are speculations based upon Darwinian Evolution being true thus are circular reasoning.)
The contributions of Darwinian Evolution over the last 100 years has been that almost all of biology has proceeded independent of Darwinian Evolution, except Darwinian Evolutionary biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, have not taken Darwinian Evolution into account at all because when an explanation is so supple that it can explain any behavior, it is difficult to test it experimentally, much less use it as a catalyst for scientific discovery. Because Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical [religious] research program, it is our knowledge of how these organisms actually operate, not speculations about how they may have arisen millions of years ago, that is essential to doctors, veterinarians, farmers, etc.
Conclusions about Darwinian Evolution from Leading Darwinists about Darwinian Evolution
As Michael Ruse, Darwinian evolutionist science philosopher admitted, “[Darwinian] Evolution is a religion. This was true of [Darwinian] evolution in the beginning, and it is true of [Darwinian] evolution still today.”
How is it that people who believe Darwinian Evolution as factual actually believe it is fact? Richard Dawkins wrote, “The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry.”
It takes the meme for blind faith to believe Darwinian Evolution is fact.
The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good. Psalms 14:1
I have complete confidence in the gospel; it is God's power to save all who believe, first the Jews and also the Gentiles. For the gospel reveals how God puts people right with himself: it is through faith from beginning to end. As the scripture says, "The person who is put right with God through faith shall live." God's anger is revealed from heaven against all the sin and evil of the people whose evil ways prevent the truth from being known. God punishes them, because what can be known about God is plain to them, for God himself made it plain. Ever since God created the world, his invisible qualities, both his eternal power [physics, mathematics, logic, etc.] and his divine nature [love, morals, etc], have been clearly seen; they are perceived in the things that God has made [universe, earth, life, etc.].
So those people [atheists] have no excuse at all! They know God, but they do not give him the honor that belongs to him, nor do they thank him. Instead, their thoughts have become complete nonsense [i.e., the universe created itself from nothing, life created itself from slime and Darwinian evolved into mankind], and their empty minds are filled with darkness [i.e., suicide is okay, abortion is okay, etc.].
They say they are wise, but they are fools; instead of worshiping the immortal God, they worship images made to look like mortals or birds or animals or reptiles. And so God has given those people over to do the filthy things their hearts desire [deceitfulness, slander, insulting, disrespect, hate, lust, pornography, drunkenness, etc.], and they do shameful things with each other [adultery, fortification, homosexual activities, bestiality, etc.]. They exchange the truth about God for a lie [i.e., Darwinism, Multi-universe, string]; they [atheists] worship and serve what God has created instead of the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever! Amen.
Because they do this, God has given them over to shameful passions. Even the women pervert the natural use of their sex by unnatural acts. In the same way the men give up natural sexual relations with women and burn with passion for each other. Men do shameful things with each other, and as a result they bring upon themselves the punishment they deserve for their wrongdoing [AIDS, STDs, etc.].
Because those people refuse to keep in mind the true knowledge about God, He has given them over to corrupted minds, so that they do the things that they should not do. They are filled with all kinds of wickedness, evil, greed, and vice; they are full of jealousy, murder, fighting, deceit, and malice. They gossip and speak evil of one another [and of those who love God]; they are hateful to God, insolent, proud, and boastful; they think of more ways to do evil; they disobey their parents; they have no conscience; they do not keep their promises, and they show no kindness or pity for others. They know that God's law says that people who live in this way deserve death. Yet, not only do they continue to do these very things, but they even approve of others who do them. Romans 1:16-32 (Good News Translation)
It’s Your Choice
You can choose to continue being a fool and ignore God as you’ve been doing or you can turn to Him right now and honestly apologize to God for the wrongs you have done, turning away from continuing to do them and accept Christ Jesus as full payment for the debt you owe to God for the wrongs you have done. It is simply your choice to make. I suggest that you make a wise choice today right now. “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” James 4:14
