“Any suppression which undermines and destroys that very foundation on which scientific methodology and research was erected, evolutionist or otherwise, cannot and must not be allowed to flourish … It is a confrontation between scientific objectivity and ingrained prejudice – between logic and emotion – between fact and fiction … In the final analysis, objective scientific logic has to prevail – no matter what the final result is – no matter how many time-honoured idols have to be discarded in the process … After all, it is not the duty of science to defend the theory of evolution and stick by it to the bitter end -no matter what illogical and unsupported conclusions it offers … If in the process of impartial scientific logic, they find that creation by outside intelligence is the solution to our quandary, then let’s cut the umbilical chord that tied us down to Darwin for such a long time. It is choking us and holding us back … Every single concept advanced by the theory of evolution (and amended thereafter) is imaginary as it is not supported by the scientifically established probability concepts. Darwin was wrong… The theory of evolution may be the worst mistake made in science.”

If you have spent any time in a science classroom, you were no doubt taught that the formal process for the formulation and testing of ideas is known as the Scientific Method. Time spent in science class no doubt also introduced you to Theory of Evolution. From kindergarten, when the first dinosaur book the teacher read said “millions of years ago…”, to high school science when you dissected something, to comparative anatomy in college; we have been immersed in the “theory” of evolution. Please note the use of the word “Theory”, and not “Law” since evolution is not a fact.

The Law of Gravity is a fact.

The Theory of Evolution is not a fact.

However, does the Theory of Evolution pass muster according to the Scientific Method?

In the scientific method, there are 4 different steps you must take to prove your theory. They are:

1. Observation and description of a phenomenon or group of phenomena.

2. Formulation of a hypothesis to explain the phenomena. In physics, the hypothesis often takes the form of a causal mechanism or a mathematical relation.

3. Use of the hypothesis to predict the existence of other phenomena, or to predict quantitatively the results of new observations.

4. Performance of experimental tests of the predictions by several independent experimenters and properly performed experiments.

Evolution Theory has only reached Step #2.

This means that from observations that were made (Step #1), the formulation of a hypotheses was made to explain how we got here. It is at this step that we stall because the hypothesis for the observations does not pass scrutiny. As more is learned by observation, the hypothesis can be refined. We therefore have a continual process of going from Step #1 to Step #2 and back again.

In science, this will usually get you to Step #3 eventually. For evolution though, it has not, and they are not even close. Under normal circumstances, the hypothesis would be discarded as rubbish. However, when it comes to evolution, the personal stakes are way too high. Without the idea that we evolved, we are forced to conclude that we arrived by special creation, from the hands of a Creator, and that means He’s God, and we are not.

“[I suppose the reason] we all jumped at the Origin [Origin of Species] was because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores.” – Sir Julian Huxley
