In fact, the students are given the idea that no true scientist today is a creationist.
In June 2022, Armin Moczek, a biologist at Indiana University, told Stephen Buranyi of The Guardian (London), “There are certain core evolutionary principles that no scientist seriously questions.”
Richard Dawkins, a brash atheist and anti-creationist, says in his book The Greatest Show in Earth: “Evolution is a fact. Beyond reasonable doubt, beyond serious doubt, beyond sane, informed, intelligent doubt, beyond doubt evolution is a fact. ... Evolution is a fact, and [my] book will demonstrate it. No reputable scientist disputes it, and no unbiased reader will close the book doubting it.”
According to Dawkins, if you reject evolution, you are unintelligent and your sanity should be questioned, and he proclaims that no reputable scientist disputes it.
In fact, modern science was invented by men who believed in divine creation. In his book Refuting Evolution, Jonathan Sarfati, who has a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, says: “It is fallacious to claim, as many evolutionists do, that believing in miracles means that laboratory science would be impossible. In fact, most branches of modern science were founded by believers in the Bible’s account of creation.”
Consider some examples:
• Physics -- Newton, Faraday, Maxwell, Kelvin, Joule
• Chemistry - Boyle, Dalton, Ramsay
• Biology - Ray, Linnaeus, Mendel, Pasteur, Virchow, Agassiz
• Geology - Steno, Woodward, Brewster, Buckland, Cuvier
• Astronomy - Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Herschel, Maunder
• Mathematics - Pascal, Leibniz, Euler
Today, 163 years after the publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species (1859), there are thousands of scientists who disagree with the Darwinian view of evolution.
These can be divided into four general categories: Christian “young earth” creationists, Christian “old earth” creationists, non-Christian theistic evolutionists, and those who believe in an undefined Intelligent Designer.
In 1979, Science Digest reported that “scientists who utterly reject evolution may be one of our fastest-growing controversial minorities,” and stated that “many of the scientists supporting this position hold impressive credentials in science” (Larry Hatfield, “Educators Against Darwin,” Science Digest Special, Winter 1979, pp. 94-96).
According to recent research, there are an estimated 113,000 Darwin skeptic scientists and academics in the United States alone (Neil Gross and Solon Simmons, How Religious Are America’s College and University Professors?, working paper Harvard University, Oct. 5, 2006).
“A 2005 poll by the Louis Finkelstein Institute for Social and Religious Research found that 60% of American medical doctors reject Darwinism, stating that they do not believe humans evolved through natural processes alone. Thirty-eight percent of the American medical doctors polled agreed with the statement that ‘humans evolved naturally with no supernatural involvement.’ The study also reported that one-third of all medical doctors favor the theory of intelligent design over evolution” (“Evolution,” Conservapedia).
Dr. Jerry Bergman has compiled a list of about 3,000 “Darwin Skeptics,” including about a dozen Nobel Prize winners. See https://www.rae.org/essay-links/darwinskeptics/.
Bergman has a private list of about 1,000 names of persons who do not want their names on a public list “because of real concerns over possible retaliation or harm to their careers.” Bergman says, “I estimate that, if I had the time and resources, I could easily complete a list of over 10,000 names” (“Darwin Skeptics: A Select List of Science Academics, Scientists, and Scholars Who Are Skeptical of Darwinism,” Aug. 24, 2014).
This is a result of the Darwinists who act like howler monkeys and Nazi SS troopers to try to stamp out every vestige of “creationism” from the field of science. (For documentation, see Silencing the Darwin Skeptics: The War Against Theists by Jerry Bergman.)
The Discovery Institute has published “A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism” -- https://dissentfromdarwin.org. On the front page is the following quotation from David Berlinski, Ph.D., Philosophy, Princeton University: “Darwin’s theory of evolution is the great white elephant of contemporary thought. It is large, almost completely useless, and the object of superstitious awe.”
As of May 2021, the list had been signed by about 1,213 scientists who agree with the following 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.”
Of course, even if NO scientist disputed evolution, this does not mean it is correct. The Bible says, “Let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4); and Jesus said, “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes” (Matthew 11:25).
But it is a fact that thousands of men and women with higher degrees in the sciences reject Darwinian evolution
The book SCIENTISTS WHO BELIEVE THE BIBLE, available in print or a free eBook edition, contains testimonies of nearly 100 scientists and inventors of the 20th and 21st centuries who believe in a literal six-day creation. Most have earned doctorates. We have included selections from their testimonies and writings. These include statements of many evidences against evolution and for creation. Many of these men and women are former Darwinists who rejected it on the basis of evidence.

Goal:Distributed by Way of Life Literature Inc., the Fundamental Baptist Information Service is an e-mail posting for Bible-believing Christians. Established in 1974, Way of Life Literature is a fundamental Baptist preaching and publishing ministry based in Bethel Baptist Church, London, Ontario, of which Wilbert Unger is the founding Pastor. Brother Cloud lives in South Asia where he has been a church planting missionary since 1979. Our primary goal with the FBIS is to provide material to assist preachers in the edification and protection of the churches.
Offering: Offerings are welcome if you care to make one. If you have been helped and/or blessed by our material offerings can be mailed or made online with with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or Paypal. For information see: www.wayoflife.org/about/makeanoffering.html.
