Doctor challenges Darwin’s men in peer-reviewed Baylor medical journal


In “Peer-Reviewed Paper in Medical Journal Challenges Evolutionary Science and Inaccurate Evolution-Education” (Evolution News & Views, January 17, 2012), Casey Luskin reports

A new article by Dr. Joseph Kuhn of the Department of Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center [Texas], appearing in the peer-reviewed journal Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings, poses a number of challenges to both chemical and biological evolution. Titled “Dissecting Darwinism,” the paper begins by recounting some of the arguments raised during the Texas State Board of Education debate that challenged chemical and biological evolution.

Despite Texas’s call for discussing the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian evolution, Kuhn closes by noting, “In 2011, when new textbooks were presented to the State Board of Education, 9 out of 10 failed to provide the mandated supplementary curricula, which would include both positive and negative aspects of evolution (44).

Some blame Texas Governor Rick Perry for putting a ‘crat in charge – which is what you do if you don’t want to get anything done.

Re Perry: Pro-ID US prez hopeful Rick Perry to drop out, support Gingrich?

I highly recommend reading the cited article by Casey Luskin. It is a very good summary of some (but not all) of the powerful scientific evidence against the adequacy of the neo-Darwinian synthesis to explain the variety of living organisms. Bruce David
It soooo matters what kids are taught eh? it matters because they want to control what kids think. Otherwise freedom to search for the truth would dominate and not be opposed. No more censorship! If evolution turns out to be false then how discrediting will it be to those who opposed criticisms of it or alternatives!? This day is coming. Robert Byers
