*= Deceased since signing statement.

 

"We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged." (From A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism)

 

:Hmm:

 

There really isn't much substance to this statement in the first place. It would appear that all they are really saying by signing this so-called dissent is "We're good scientists. We continue to critically examine Darwinian theory because it doesn't answer all the pertinent questions to our satisfaction."

 

Skepticism of any theory is a good thing since it drives discovery. What is bad is when organizations like the The Discovery Institute spin this as support for Intelligent Design. The fact that they feel this is necessary is simply another indicator that IDers don't have any evidence of their own; they must attack the existing theory in an attempt to invalidate it.

 

I'm sure that the Axis of Evangelicals are eating this up just like they did before. :jerkit:

 

Yes, I noticed that, too. It doesn't say "We don't believe in," it says "We are skeptical of," big difference! It also only targets Darwinian evolution. It totally ignores the more religiously paltable version: theistic evolution. I would be willing to bet that a good deal of these people would fall into this category -- esp. those in the biological fields.

Good points RAS. They are skeptical to the "random" mutations and selection, but it's very possible most of them are supporters of Theistic Evolution. Which means they believe the signs of evolution, mutations, selection does happen, but they are not chaotic, by chance etc, but controlled and directed by an invisible hand. Now, that means that maybe just a few of them are creationists.

 

Secondly, the other point is that "who did not sign?". Since there's a extreme large amount of scientists out there, it should have been easy to find hundreds of thousands of scientists against evolution, if it was so obviously false. Hence, it's not obviously false, but based more on the notion that it's hard to accept.

 

Many people want to believe, even if every argument and sign in the sky would point the other way. You tend to stick to what you feel comfortable with. If someone is not comfortable with a random universe with events happening by chance, well, then you have no other choice than to fall back on some kind of belief. And if the signs in nature points away from this belief, you rather try to explain away the facts to save the beliefs. Just human nature.

It doesn't help that the majority of our population is programmed from birth to believe in the popular creation myth. Silly beliefs easily take on reality when supported by many people -- esp. those in your immediately family. It doesn't matter that evolution is so heavily evidenced. Theism has had a massive head start in filling the mind of young people. It's amazing anyone raised in such circumstances even has the ability to grasp any scientific truth, really.

I'm wrong, that list is a set-up, most of those guys have the same surname and must be related. Did you see how many surnames were Emeritus. Mr Emeritus has got a lot to answer for.

 

Those guys on the the list just don't get it, evolution is "law and a fact". How did they get those Ph.D's

Emeritus is not a surname. It is a title designation. Basically a fancy name for a retired former full time professor

 

 

http://www.answers.com/topic/emeritus

e·mer·i·tus (ĭ-mĕr'ĭ-təs)

adj.

Retired but retaining an honorary title corresponding to that held immediately before retirement: a professor emeritus.

 

n., pl. -ti (-tī').

One who is retired but retains an honorary title corresponding to that held immediately before retirement.

 

But even though that doesn't designate a surname....that is a damn good catch redneck22!! Those people are all retired! And they aren't required to note how long they have been retired either. Interesting. :scratch:

 

We're going to make a caution observer of you yet Redneck22!

 

Nice job! :grin:

Dissent From Darwinism 'Goes Global' as Over 600 Scientists Around the World Express Their Doubts About Darwin's Theory

Wednesday June 21, 5:12 pm ET

 

 

SEATTLE, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 600 doctoral scientists from all around the world have now signed a statement publicly expressing their skepticism about the contemporary theory of Darwinian evolution. ...

 

 

Hmmm .... this is very surprising.

 

I am in the scientific community in the middle of Zürich, in Switzerland.

 

I heard nothing of this, at all. Not even a hint.

Evolution is a fact and a theory. It was never a law.

i am assuming you are older than 20, i think in the decade it has became more incorparated into the school system. that is what i am gathering from what i have read. so if they don't get creationism from the family, they will start out with the beleif in ToE. that is what they are taught, and most children look at teachers as a person of authority in the subject matter.

Has anyone ever tried to contact these scientists? I checked on the first 28 to see if I could find information on them, but some are hard to find because of affiliations with organizations outside the country (the Russian Academy of Natural Science, for example).

 

Of those I've looked at, several are blatant creationists and it should surprise no one that they would sign this 'dissent.' Many have been retired with no meaningful scientific contributions in years. Also, many were signatories to the amicus curiae brief filed in the Kitzmiller case (Dover, PA) on behalf of the school board. Finally, all but two are clearly religious.

I'm curious to know what the two non-religious scientist would propose for the alternative to evoultion.

Thank Gawd you saved that article, because my source was gone last I checked.

 

I'm your new source, it would appear! Link to me all you like. :)

Super intelligent alien life forms?

Maybe Raelians?

It's plausible. Nobel Laureate Sir Francis Crick (one of the discoverers of double helix Dna) proposed that the vast complexity and the intriciate nature of Dna would preclude it being formed naturally and suggested the only alternative was it came from outer space. That only shifts the issue to another area where it still would have had to have evolved or was created.

 

Since Dna is not the source of the information but the carrier, I can see why Sir Francis had to resort to theorizing so far out of left field that its not funny. Especially when there is no other scientific data to support the alien theory.

Sure, why not. I like to imagine sometimes, for shits and giggles, that all life on Earth was created by groups of competing gods/aliens. Each would enter a species or group of species and then place bets on how long it survived and televise the whole thing with some crazy technology/magic.

I was referring to hypotheses directed at the creators of all life being aliens, not panspermia. In these hypotheses aliens don't seed the Earth, they genetically engineered all life. I liked the one that says aliens took chimp dna and alien dna and spliced it to create homo sapiens! I don't believe any of this, mind you, but it's entertaining to imagine, as is all mythology.

Okay. 600 Creationists against Evolution. Like, Wow, *NOT*!!! :Wendywhatever:

 

How about Pro-Evolution lists, like the Clergy Letter (10,000 names of religious leaders supporting evolution), or Project Steve (scientists supporting evolution, and have a name or similar name to Steve, Stephen etc)

 

The Clergy Letter (10,000 names, Christian leaders)

I actually mentioned Project Steve in the subtitle. I had forgotten about the Clergy Letter, though. That was big and quite amazing! One for the history books!

Just a note:

 

 

"Hawking has concluded that black holes give off radiation"

and

"Penrose has concluded that it is impossible to build an intelligent computer"

 

Hawking is a physicist, and so we can reasonably expect his opinions on black hole radiation to be informed. Penrose is a mathematician, so it is questionable whether he is well-qualified to speak on the subject of machine intelligence.

 

This is a really bad example of a fallacious appeal to authority. Coming from a computer science background--I was majoring in it at a university with a really strong program, and I've switched to minoring in it--I'd like to point out that the nitty gritty of computing is nothing but math. In trying to figure out whether artificial intelligence is theoretically possible, a professional mathemetician is perfectly qualified to put forth an opinion, if he provides strong support.

You know what irks me about these dissents is that there is probably a grain of truth to all of them. I have said this before but the theory of evolution is not, and never was intended to be, the last word on a theory of organism. Much remains to be discovered. But whatever is discovered will not overturn the theory of evolution but only add to it in my estimation. Maybe add a great deal to it.
