Evolution or Creation; Quotes from Evolutionists Themselves



Not one change of species into another is on record. We cannot prove that a single species has been changed. ~ (Charles Darwin, My Life and Letters)


But, as by this theory innumerable transitional forms must have existed, why do we not find them imbedded in countless numbers in the crust of the earth? ~ (Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species)


The pathetic thing is that we have scientists who are trying to prove evolution, which no scientist can ever prove. ~ (Dr. Robert A. Millikan, Nobel Prize winner and eminent evolutionist)


A scientific study of the universe has suggested a conclusion which may be summed up in the statement that the universe appears to have been designed by a pure mathematician. ~ (Sir James Jeans, The Mysterious Universe, pg140)


The record of the rocks is decidedly against evolutionists. ~ (Sir William Dawson, famous Canadian geologist)


To the unprejudiced, the fossil record of plants is in favour of special creation. ~ (Prof. E. J.H. Corner, Cambridge University, Contemporary Botanical Thought, pg97)


Biochemical systems are exceedingly complex, so much so that the chance of their being formed through random shufflings of simple organic molecules is exceedingly minute, to a point where it is insensibly different from zero. ~ (Prof. Fred Hoyle and Prof. Wickramasinghe, Evolution from Space, 1981, pg3)


To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree. ~ (Charles Darwin, Origin of Species, Chapter: Difficulties)


The success of Darwinism was accompanied by a decline in scientific integrity. This is already evident in the reckless statements of Haeckel and in the shifty, devious and histrionic argumentation of T.H. Huxley. To establish the continuity required by theory, historical arguments are invoked even though historical evidence is lacking. Thus are engendered those fragile towers of hypothesis based on hypotheses, where fact and fiction intermingle in an inextricable confusion. ~ (Prof. W.R. Thompson, Director of the Commonwealth Institute of Biological Control, in his introduction to the 1956 reissue of Darwins Origin of Species)


Much of Professor Thompsons criticism of Darwins text is unanswerable. Adequate proof has never been produced, though a few not entirely convincing examples are claimed to have been found. The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an unproved theory is it then a science or a faith? Belief in the theory is thus exactly parallel to the belief in special creation both are concepts which believers know to be true but neither, up to the present, has been capable of proof. ~ (Evolutionist L. Harrison Matthews, in his introduction to the 1971 reprint of Darwins Origins)


For myself also, I rejoice profoundly; for thinking of so many cases of men persuing an illusion for years, often and often a cold shudder has run through me, and I have asked myself whether I may have not devoted myself to a phantasy. ~ (Charles Darwin in a letter to Charles Lyell, the proponent of the Uniformitarian theory of earths development)


Exactly fifteen months ago, when I put pen to paper for this volume, I had awful misgivings; and I thought perhaps I had deluded myself as so many have done. ~ (Charles Darwin in a letter to T.H. Huxley)


In the years after Darwin, his advocates hoped to find predictable progressions. In general, these have not been found yet the optimism has died hard, and some pure fantasy has crept into textbooks. ~ (Science, Vol 213, pg289)


The record of evolution is still surprisingly jerky, and ironically, we have fewer examples of evolutionary transition than we had in Darwins time. By this I mean that some of the classic cases of Darwinian change in the fossil record, such as the evolution of the horse in North America, have had to be discarded or modified as a result of more detailed information. ~ (David M.Raup, Conflicts Between Darwin and Paleontology, Field Museum of Natural History Bulletin, January 1975, pg25)


All paleontologists know that the fossil record contains precious little in the way of intermediate forms; transitions between major groups are characteristically abrupt. ~ (Stephen J. Gould, The Return of Hopeful Monsters, Natural History, Vol 86, June 1977, pg22 30)


There have been many findings of sandal prints in pre-Cambrian rock, man made objects smoothly imbedded in coal beds, etc. These show that either man has been around a lot longer than most people think, or that the system of dating strata is badly in error, or both. Petrified trees have been found, standing vertically through several so-called different-aged strata. ~ (F.M. Broadhurst, Some Aspects of the Paleoecology of Non-marine Faunas and rates of Sedimentation in the Lancashire Coal Measures, American Journal of Science, Vol 262, Summer 1964, pg 865)


Further Evidence:


The unfortunate fact that exists when dealing with evolution is that people tend to make up their mind first, and then will only accept the facts (or theories) which comply with their views. When ALL available evidence is examined, it suggests that evolution is, far from being a scientific discovery, it was a deliberate imposition of a false scientific dogma upon the unwitting public of the day by a comparatively small group of people. (From; The Rise of the Evolution Fraud, by M. Bowen, pg184 & 186)


If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. ~ (Charles Darwin, Origin of Species)

In response to this:

To Darwin, the cell was a black box- its inner workings were utterly mysterious to him. Now, the black box has been opened up and we know how it works. Applying Darwins test to the ultra-complex world of molecular machinery and cellular systems that have been discovered over the past 40 years, we can say that Darwins theory has absolutely broken down. ~ (Michael Behe, Biochemist, in Darwins Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, 1996)


Darwinism cannot explain the Cambrian explosion any more. We need a new theory Why does no one comment when I tell audiences that Darwinism wont explain the Cambrian data? (A scientist quickly explained that this area was extremely sensitive to American scientists, and that any strong hint that Darwinian theory was in trouble was virtually taboo in the universities.) The man replied, This is very interesting. In my country, you can criticize Darwin, but not the government. In your country, you can criticize the government, but not Darwin. ~ (Dr. Jun-Yuan Chen, Chinese Paleontologist, in his discussion with an American biologist in California)
