As I posted recently - life is like fire. The shape of a fire isn't much affected by the spark that ignited it, but rather by the fuel it consumes. Little or nothing about evolution depends on the spark that was the first replicator, or how that came to be. And, like a forest fire, life has probably consumed all evidence of the spark that ignited it.Who gives a shit what brain-dead garbage you post? Listen, Mac, did
you actually think we were having a debate here? hahaha :) I'm just
here to tell you how it is, ok? Whether you accept it or not is
totally irrelevant, get it?
DISSENT FROM DARWIN GOES GLOBAL AS OVER 600 SCIENTISTS FROM AROUND THE
WORLD EXPRESS THEIR DOUBTS ABOUT DARWIN'S THEORY
Over 600 doctoral scientists from around the world have now signed a
statement publicly expressing their skepticism about the contemporary
theory of Darwinian evolution. The statement, located online at
www.dissentfromdarwin.org, reads: "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 fastest growing segment of the list is scientists from outside the
United States. International scientists now represent just over 12%
of all signers, and as a group has seen nearly 40% growth in the past
"I signed the Scientific Dissent From Darwinism statement, because I
am absolutely convinced of the lack of true scientific evidence in
favour of Darwinian dogma," said Raul Leguizamon, M. D., Pathologist,
and a professor of medicine at the Autonomous University of
"Nobody in the biological sciences, medicine included, needs Darwinism
at all," added Leguizamon. "Darwinism is certainly needed, however, in
order to pose as a philosopher, since it is primarily a worldview. And
an awful one, as Bernard Shaw used to say."
The list of 610 signatories includes member scientists from National
Academies of Science in Russia, Czech Republic, Hungary, India
(Hindustan), Nigeria, Poland, Russia and the United States. Many of
the signers are professors or researchers at major universities and
international research institutions such as Cambridge University,
British Museum of Natural History, Moscow State University, Masaryk
University in Czech Republic, Hong Kong University, University of
Turku in Finland, Autonomous University of Guadalajara in Mexico,
University of Stellenbosch in South Africa, Institut de Pal?ontologie
Humaine in France, Chitose Institute of Science & Technology in Japan,
Ben-Gurion University in Israel, MIT, The Smithsonian and Princeton.
"Dissent from Darwinism has gone global," said Discovery Institute
President Bruce Chapman, former US Ambassador to the United Nations in
Vienna. "Darwinists used to claim that virtually every scientist in
the world held that Darwinian evolution was true, but we quickly
started finding US scientists that disproved that statement. Now we're
finding that there are hundreds, and probably thousands, of scientists
all over the world that don't subscribe to Darwin's theory."
Discovery Institute first published its Scientific Dissent From
Darwinism list in 2001 to challenge false statements about Darwinian
evolution made in promoting PBS's "Evolution" series. At the time it
was claimed that "virtually every scientist in the world believes the
theory to be true."
Prominent signatories include U.S. National Academy of Sciences member
Philip Skell; American Association for the Advancement of Science
Fellow -Lyle Jensen; evolutionary biologist and textbook author
Stanley Salthe; Smithsonian Institution evolutionary biologist and a
researcher at the National Institutes of Health's National Center for
Biotechnology Information Richard von Sternberg; Editor of Rivista di
Biologia / Biology Forum --the oldest still published biology journal
in the world--Giuseppe Sermonti; and Russian Academy of Natural
Sciences embryologist Lev Beloussov.
