The CSC recently announced that its list of science PhD’s who do not buy into the extraordinary claims of evolution has grown to over 500, and now has a home at www.dissentfromdarwin.org. The statement 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.
Now that’s a statment I could sign up with, if I had pursued a PhD. Sigh. Maybe I’ll get one in ministry after my M. Div. Here’s one paragraph from the announcement I particularly like:
Darwinists continue to claim that no serious scientists doubt the theory and yet here are 500 scientists who are willing to make public their skepticism about the theory,” said Dr. John G. West, associate director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture. “Darwinist efforts to use the courts, the media and academic tenure committees to suppress dissent and stifle discussion are in fact fueling even more dissent and inspiring more scientists to ask to be added to the list."
