Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

2006: Dissent from Darwin is becoming more open among professionals



Clearwater, FL – 60% of U.S. Medical Doctors Doubt Macroevolutionary Theory. A recent poll indicated that 60 percent of the medical doctors in the US have serious doubts about the veracity of the macroevolutionary theory as taught in universities today.

This after many decades of Darwinist propaganda. Mind you, as neurosurgeon Michael Egnor has pointed out, medicine is about what demonstrably helps patients in the real world today, not about speculations on the distant past.

Seattle, WA – Over 600 Scientists Express Skepticism of Darwinian Evolution. As of June 2006 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 list has grown since then, to nearly 900. This despite the Expelled phenomenon. (The physicians are much less vulnerable, of course.)

For example,

Washington, DC – Government Report Finds Smithsonian Staff Guilty of Persecution. The demotion of a well-published evolutionary biologist critical of Darwinian evolution was found to be religiously and politically motivated, according to a new government report. In December the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform released a staff report detailing the persecution of Dr. Richard Sternberg, whose civil and constitutional rights were violated by Smithsonian officials when he published a peer-reviewed article by Dr. Stephen Meyer criticizing Darwinian evolution and supporting intelligent design.

But in that year, the Biologic Institute, where he now works, is founded to research design in life forms (It is not to be confused with BioLogos, a “Christians for Darwin” think tank.)
