What 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 to faith. 


Richard 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.
    The Extended Phenotype, (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)
    Dawkins also points out that our genes have created intelligence. ...New Scientist Magazine, July, 2000, page 52.
    The 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." 

Stephen Hawking, 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/
    The Calgary Herald, 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."

Dean 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, calculates the mathematical probability of life emerging by accident as NIL: "The mathematical calculations are overwhelming against accidental processes using the first form of living matter." 
    Overman states 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).

Lynn 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
