M. Krahn has some good posts about evolution. This post is not about evolution, it is about intellectual freedom and freedom of speech, my freedom of speech, and yours if you hold the same opinions as do I.
If you have an inward desire to be abused and instantly labeled an uneducated foolish hater, just question the Theory of Evolution. It is not necessary to deny it, just question it, or emphasize the word theory, and, in most circles today, everything else you have to say on any other subject will be discounted no matter how wise or well formed.
Why has this become the Shibboleth of intelligent conversation? Why is it more appropriate to say abortion is good, or God is dead, or republicans should be exterminated? There is no more egregious faux pas in the halls of academia than to suggest Evolution may be a dead end street. One would assume all educated people are 100% convinced Darwin opened the doors of understanding, but hold on, it just ain’t so!
I have heavily edited Susan Mazur’s article from Scoops. It is not for Creationism, don’t take it wrong, these people may or may not be believers in God the Creator as I am, but they are not Darwinists either, read on.

Will the Real Theory of Evolution Please Stand Up?
By SUZAN MAZUR
AN EXPOSÉ OF THE EVOLUTION INDUSTRY
“Unless the discourse around evolution is opened up to scientific perspectives beyond Darwinism, the education of generations to come is at risk of being sacrificed for the benefit of a dying theory.”
– Stuart Newman, New York Medical College
“There has never been a theory of evolution.” – Cytogeneticist Antonio Lima-de-Faria, Evolution without Selection
“It works by selection of traits produced by random variations in the genes. That’s essentially Darwin’s hypothesis. I think not. . . . There’s something wrong with the theory. It goes deep.” –Jerry Fodor
Here are more things “smart guys” say.
” He told me that if what is causing change is not selection, then maybe it is some laws of organization, but that “basically I don’t think anybody knows how evolution works.”
“The heritable traits, features of biological organisms – complex or simple – change over time. They change as a function sometimes of variables or other god knows what.”
“But the question that evolutionary theory is about, as opposed to questions about where did life start or something of that sort, the question of evolutionary theory is about when you get these changes in the inheritable structures of organisms – where do they come from? What are the controlling variables? “
” Darwin doesn’t explain how life begins, “Darwin starts with life. He doesn’t get you to life.”
So these guys have questions, more than questions, they see the holes in the logic. All these men are very educated in the field but the article even says they must be careful to mind their tounges . One more quote.
Stanley Salthe, a natural philosopher at Binghamton University with a PhD in zoology – who says he can’t get published in the mainstream media with his views – largely agrees with Lewontin. But Salthe goes further.
“Oh sure natural selection’s been demonstrated . . . the interesting point, however, is that it has rarely if ever been demonstrated to have anything to do with evolution in the sense of long-term changes in populations. . . . Summing up we can see that the import of the Darwinian theory of evolution is just unexplainable caprice from top to bottom. What evolves is just what happened to happen.”
” But neither will most science blogs report there’s a paradigm shift afoot because they share the same ideology as the corporate media. At the same time, the Darwin industry is also in bed with government, even as political leaders remain clueless about evolutionary biology.
” Thus, the public is unaware that its dollars are being squandered on funding of mediocre, middle-brow science or that its children are being intellectually starved as a result of outdated texts and unenlightened teachers. ”
So will this be reported or taught or mentioned? No. The truth is Darwinism is the anti God. For now. What is important is to be anti-God, not to be honest or correct or well educated.
I am willing to listen to other opinions about most subjects. If the sources above say there are areas of evolution to be debated, I no longer want to be treated like hill-billy cousin with a second grade education when I weigh in with some of my opinions. Here they are.
- God created life.
- Each specie is designed for a niche by a loving Creator.
- Science can not, and should not be expected to explain everything.
- The wonders of nature show the Glory of God.
- Jesus to this day holds all things together.
- Belief in God is not a sign of low IQ.
- God explained all this and more in His Word, the bible.
- God created the duck-bill platypus to mess with zoologists who believe in evolution.
- Man is not evolving, man is devolving further away from God.
- You do not have to believe this, the bible says some will not.
Don’t let anybody tell you the case is closed on evolution, it really is just a theory.
