Ben Stein : I deal in hope

Blog politics The “Science” of Evolution

Something from nothing. The earth is founded on a principle of cause and effect, yet evolution theory seeks to create something from nothing. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that everything is in a state of decay. Yet evolution theory claims just the opposite, that things without added input or energy produce something new and completely different.

Scientists are far from agreement about the theory of evolution, which though in reality a “theory”, is usually taught as proven “fact” in public schools. There are many, many scientists who have followed facts with an open mind and come to the conclusion that the evolutionary theory has so many holes that it should be buried in one of them. Even scientists who hold to the basic idea of evolution, realize their theory doesn’t meet the basic standards of true scientific inquiry—an open mind and following the facts where they lead.

Evolutionist who sought to mix evolution with theology, Dr. Edwin Conklin, once a professor of biology Princeton University 1908-1935 wrote, “The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop.”

Dr. Dean H. Kenyon, professor emeritus of biology San Francisco State University and a driver of the Intelligent Design movement, wrote, “We have not the slightest chance of a chemical evolutionary origin for even the simplest of cells.”

Dr. Michael Egnor, professor neurosurgery and pediatrics, State University of New York, Stony Brook, who also has come to believe in Intelligent Design, writes, “Darwinism is a trivial idea that has been elevated to the status of the scientific theory that governs modern biology.”

Finally, from Geneticist, Dr. Francis S. Collins, Director National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, said, “The spiritual worldview provides another way of finding truth. Scientists who deny this would be well advised to consider the limits of their own tools.”

Unfortunately, as Ben Stein’s 2008 movie “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” so well documented, many scientists who decide that evolution is not valid find themselves ostracized by a scientific community, lose tenure, teaching positions and are smeared by their fellow scientists who refuse to allow anyone to deviate from the party line.

At its core, evolution is atheistic. No god of any sort is allowed in any evolutionary inquiry. Scientists refuse to examine other possibilities such as what Isaac Asimov, an atheist, wrote about in one of his stories that would explain the Intelligent Design perspective. His story explained Adam and Eve. They were placed by an intelligent computer from another place starting a new race on earth.

Many who hold to the theory of evolution get furious when anyone questions their findings, assumptions, speculations or logic. They don’t answer with facts, but with put downs and without even considering any other possible perspectives. And that isn’t science.

Even science goes back to this, “In the beginning, God…” Genesis 1:1
