LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Evolution uses lack of evidence as proof
Question of the Day
Reading “Al Gore’s global warming-crusade shrinks” (Commentary, Wednesday) brought to mind another, even greater fraud: “molecules-to-man” evolution.
This hypothesis is being taught as fact in our nation’s public schools and most of our private schools and universities. That is bad enough, but far worse is that the careers of teachers and professors are at risk if they present any information to the contrary. Academic freedom is nonexistent when it comes to evolution. When evolutionists have no better explanation for the origin of life on Earth than directed panspermia - life could not have occurred spontaneously on Earth so it must have come from another planet - it is evident they are grasping at straws.
Similarly, evolutionists have no credible explanation for the origin of the DNA in the simplest cell. There is no known scientific law whereby matter can give rise to information. Nor does the fossil record support molecules-to-man evolution. When Colin Patterson, formerly of the British Museum of Natural History, was asked why his book “Evolution” contained no photos of transitional fossils, his response was, “If I knew of any, fossil or living, I would have certainly included them.”
This lack of evidence of evolution in the fossil record is so blatant that the late Harvard paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould and others came up with “punctuated equilibrium,” a hypothesis that evolution occurred in isolated populations so quickly that there was insufficient time for it to have left any fossil evidence. Lack of evidence becomes evidence? What kind of science is that?
There is an answer that the evolutionary scientific establishment will not accept: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
As Richard Lewontin, Harvard biology professor, said in 1997: “[M]aterialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a divine foot in the door.”
It’s time that the house of cards of molecules-to-man evolution collapsed.
