some of the world's leading evolutionary scientists and other distinguished
scientists have to say about evolution/creation:
At the 1998 Science and the Spiritual
Quest conference at University of California at Berkeley, funded by the
Templeton Foundation, more than 20 scientists, including a physics Nobel
laureate, testified that science either led them to God or was not an obstacle
Dawkins, Department of Zoology,
Oxford University, UK,-The
Blind Watchmaker, W.W.
Norton, London, England.-"There is
nothing inherently progressive about evolution."
The progress of evolution is inversely-proportional
to the spreading of its theory among intelligent thinking people.
(1999), Cox & Wyman, Reading, Berkshire, UK, chapter 3, page 30. "I
think all evolutionists agree that it is virtually impossible to do a better
job than an organism is doing in its present environment." (too bad the
emerging biotech industry doesn't believe that)
points out that our genes have created

necessity of Darwinism,-New
Scientist, vol. 94, April 15, 1982, p.130-"The
more statistically improbable a thing is, the less can we believe that
it just happened by blind chance. Superficially the obvious alternative
to chance is an intelligent Designer."
A Brief History of
Time, (1988), commenting
on unraveling the cosmos: "If we find the answer (to the question of why
it is that we and the Universe exists), it would be the ultimate triumph
of human reason, for we would then know the mind of God...The odds against
a Universe like ours energizing out of something like the Big Bang are
enormous. I think there are clearly religious implications...If the Universe
is completely self contained, with no singularities or boundaries, and
completely described by a unified
theory, that has profound-implications
for the role of God as Creator...There may be only
one, or a small number of complete unified theories, such as the heterotic
string theory, that are self consistent and allow the existence of
structures as complicated as human beings who can invest into the laws
of the Universe and ask about the nature of God."
Stephen acknowledges the fallacy
of creation out of nothing, page 110.
There was never nothing. Always
was God. Stephen Hawking's own pages – http://www.hawking.org.uk/
January 6, 2000, Stephen Hawking "Earth is by far the most favored
planet in the solar system....By far the most complex systems we have are
our own bodies."
L. Overman, Washington lawyer, Mensa Society member and corporate advisor
to Vice-presidents Nelson Rockefeller and Walter Mondale, author of-A
Case Against Accident And Self Organization,
mathematical probability of life emerging by accident as NIL: "The
mathematical calculations are overwhelming against accidental processes
using the first form of living matter."
that the laws of physics and chemistry together cannot account for the
incredible complexity of genetic information stored within the simplest
form of life, E. coli. He states that particle-astrophysics
show there had to be extraordinary fine tuning at the beginning of the
universe for life to continue. The slightest variation would have doomed
life from the start. He concludes that if life transcends the laws of physics
and chemistry, then the cause of life is more than a physical thing and
is in fact a Person itself (God).
Margulis is Distinguished University Professor of Biology in the Department
of Geosciences in the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and has been
a member of the National Academy of Sciences since 1983
Professor Margulis says that history will judge neo Darwinism
as "a minor twentieth century religious sect within the sprawling religious
persuasion of Anglo Saxon (English nationality
or descent) biology".
She challenges biologists to have
a single unambiguous example
of the formation of a new species by the accumulations of mutations.
Her challenge goes unmet. Professor
Margulis states "neo Darwinism which insists on the slow accrual
of mutations, is in a complete funk".-...continues
