So far we told you what we had in our mind, and we are confident that you enjoyed the information given to you. If you can spare a little more time, then we would like you to launch into a little bit of investigation of your own.
Personal investigation has several advantages. It brings you in touch with many truths that you did not know so far, but what’s more, it also gives you a special assurance about what is true and what is false.
To help you get started, we are going to give you a large number of quotations from scientific sources. Remember, none of these scientists is a Creationist. All of them are evolutionists, and also authorities in their fields. Thus their scientific observations must provoke you to think further on these subjects.
Along with that, if possible, you should try to acquire one or more of the books listed in the bibliography.
Contrary to what many evolutionists, rationalists, and critics of the Bible say, the believers in Creation have nothing to fear. Truth can (and ought to) stand all investigation.
IS EVOLUTION AN ESTABLISHED FACT ?
**** ‘One must conclude that, contrary to the established and current wisdom a scenario describing the genesis of life on earth by chance and natural causes which can be accepted on the basis of fact and not faith has not yet been written.’
Hubert P. Yockey (Army Pulse Radiation Facility, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, USA), `A calculation of the probability of spontaneous biogenesis by information theory’, Journal of Theoretical Biology, vol. 67, 1977,p. 396.
HAS ANYONE EVER OBSERVED EVOLUTION ?
**** ‘Evolution, at least in the sense that Darwin speaks of it, cannot be detected within the lifetime of a single observer.’
David B. Kitts, Ph.D. (zoology) (School of Geology and Geophysics, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma, USA). `Paleontology and evolutionary theory’. Evolution, vol.28, September 1974,p. 466.
IS EVOLUTION A TESTED FACT OF SCIENCE ?
****`It is easy enough to make up stories of how one form gave rise to another, and to find reasons why the stages should be favoured by natural selection. But such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test.’
Personal letter (written 10 April 1979) from Dr. Colin Patterson, Senior Paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History in London, to Luther D.Sunderland; as quoted in Darwin’s Enigma by Luther D.Sunderland, Master Books, San Diego, USA, 1984,p.89.
WHAT DID DARWIN SAY ABOUT AVAILABLE PROOFS ?
****`For I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume on which facts cannot be adduced, often apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I have arrived. A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question; and this is here impossible.’
Charles Darwin, 1859,Introduction to Origin of Species, p.2. Also quoted in `John Lofton’s Journal’. The Washington Times, 8 February 1984.
WHAT DO SCIENTISTS SAY ABOUT DARWIN ?
****`His theory had, in essence, preceded his knowledge-that is, he had hit upon a novel and evocative theory of evolution with limited knowledge at hand to satisfy either himself or others that the theory was true. He could neither accept it himself nor prove it to others. He simply did not know enough concerning the several natural history fields upon which his theory would have to be based.’
Dr. Barry Gale (Science Historian, Darwin College, UK) in his book, Evolution Without Evidence. As quoted in ` John Lofton’s Journal’, The Washington Times, 8 February 1984.
Right from the lowest class in school children are indoctrinated with the theory of evolution. There is nothing wrong if a theory is taught as a mere theory. However, it becomes objectionable when it is taught as a fact.
Unfortunately, the indoctrination that has been going on for a century has left people wondering about what is truth and what is fantasy. Fortunately, the wide availability of research monographs and scientific journals makes it possible even for the (motivated) layman today to inquite these things for himself.
Theory Of Evolution was only a scientific hypothesis when it was proposed. It continues to be ONLY an unproven hypothesis even today. Worse, many of the supposed proofs in favour of this hypothesis have either disappeared or have been discredited in the last three dacades.
At the same time, the Creation Model has been gaining more and more scientific support during the same period of time. Bible-believing people have nothing to fear from science. Truth does not fear investigation.
