Evolution Is Dying Fast

volution is dying FAST in the practicing scientific community. The only strength it has left is in the media and in the education systems. The ONLY reason people are still hanging on to it is because they have not yet come up with another alternative to Biblical Creation on origins. Most scientists won't speak up on this publicly if they want to keep their funding. And many of them are fast losing their faith in evolution, even though they don't believe in Biblical creation. I've been hearing several rumors of some of these scientists searching for an alternative theory. 
With medicine, if an alternative to "mainstream" medicine is brought forth, there are no laws that ban such practices from ever being mentioned. They are often frowned upon because of the money involved, but there are no laws banning the practices of natural remedies. In contrast, the "laws" protecting evolution won't allow ANY competition or alternative theories to be considered. 
Just try to get the well-known fraudulent "evidences" for evolution out of school textbooks and see how quickly people will get defensive. We see it happen ALL the time. We don't see doctors screaming bloody murder when someone goes to get acupuncture or use a natural remedy instead of going to them to get a prescription. But we see it all the time when anything that would question Evolution or the "evidences" they depend upon is brought up. In no other field anywhere in science is it defended as Evolution is. It does not act like science, it is not treated as science. The outcry against anyone who speaks against Evolution is virtually identical to the outcry of anyone who speaks against Islam in a Muslim nation. Only a false religion that has no concept of the term "tolerance" acts in such ways.

Am I missing something? I don't find any examples in this blog post that demonstrate how "evolution is dying fast". I personally believe in creation and I appreciate the points/analogies you've made, but the title gave me much higher expectations.

I think that this post was not meant to be an extensive scientific analysis, but a brief statement on how evolution is a house of cards about to tumble. At any rate, the point it makes is an accurate one. You can't just restrict people's thinking to exclude all evidence of God simply because you don't want there to be a higher authority than yourself. Some people are stupid enough to fall for it, but not everyone is that idiotic.

Evolutionists love to say they have been educated, but in fact, they have been indoctrinated. Indoctrination is different from education. It is repeating something a human said — mindlessly, stubbornly, idiotically, fanatically — and clinging to it. It is not going by what God said. A real educated person not only knows what God says and has to say, but actually KNOWS God. You cannot take an educated person and indoctrinate him. Why? He's got actual knowledge of heaven, and no one can take that away.

Bunkum. Utter tosh. You make the claim that scientists are leaving the theory of evolution in ever increasing numbers.

Cite your evidence - not anecdotal but proper unbiased research findings.

It's probably because they simply choose not to talk about it. They don't talk about how when the coelacanth was discovered in 1938, it showed little change compared to the 70 million year old fossils of it we still find in sediment today. Why did that creature not evolve into another species during that time while we gradually changed from apes to humans in less than half that time? This isn't just true of coelacanths, it's true of every other "living fossil" that's been re-discovered since Darwin formulated his theory on the assumption that the fossil record would turn up thousands of "missing links", the first of which we're still looking for, after nearly 200 years. So living fossils changed little, if at all, yet ape species became us? And you call what I believe tosh??

I want to believe you. It would be so much easier for me if I could leave my religion so I could join yours and get a tenured teaching job at a science department in a university, guarantee myself lots of money and prestige, and go on a book tour to tell everyone how exceptionally brilliant I am because I'm an atheist, and therefore I know better than ancient people who were murdered for writing their testimonies of a Creator..........I just need little questions like these answered first!

Evolution is no where near its "death bed" but is alive and well and is still being used in biology and the inspiration for other aspects of science and engineering with the development of evolutionary and genetic algorithm which are coming up for new inventive designs for things.

So all in all, I have to disagree with you wholeheartedly.

"Evolution is dying FAST in the practicing scientific community."

On the contrary, in spite of your capital letters (whatever they mean) the theory of evolution is today going from strength to strength faster and faster as more and more corroborative evidence is discovered and more and more reasonable people find the idea so compelling. Given the enormous developments in the science of genetics, the theory of evolution by natural selection is one of the fastest growing fields of science today.

"The ONLY reason people are still hanging on to it is because they have not yet come up with another alternative to Biblical Creation on origins."

More mysterious capital letters! I reckon they have most definitively come up with more than one alternative to what you said. One alternative in this debate is the theory of evolution. But, you just said they haven't come up with an alternative. Are you saying that evolution is not an alternative? If it's not an alternative does that mean you accept it?

" Most scientists won't speak up on this publicly if they want to keep their funding. But many of them are fast losing their faith in evolution."

Almost all scientists do speak up on this publicly. They have to, if they are to keep their funding, because most of their funding comes from scientific institutions.

"I've been hearing several rumors of some of these scientists searching for an alternative theory. "

I have been hearing several rumours of some of these creationists searching for an alternative theory.

"With medicine, if an alternative to "mainstream" medicine is brought forth, there are no laws that ban such practices from ever being mentioned. They are often frowned upon because of the money involved, but there are no laws banning the practices of natural remedies."

Alternative medicine is a whole different field of gookery, which is gradually, but too slowly being gathered under the control of the law.

"In contrast, the "laws" protecting evolution won't allow ANY competition or alternative theories to be considered. "

There are no laws protecting evolution. It's a scientific theory. There are constitutional arrangements which protect your basic freedoms and rights as a human being, for which you should be grateful. (More upper case histrionics I see)

"Just try to get the well-known fraudulent "evidences" for evolution out of school textbooks and see how quickly people will get defensive."

"evidences" - meaning ? Grammar? Actually rational people don't tend to be defensive. In all USA court cases involving creationism it turns out that the creationists were the defendants (e.g. they were the ones who got defensive).

"We see it happen ALL the time. We don't see doctors screaming bloody murder when someone goes to get acupuncture or use a natural remedy instead of going to them to get a prescription."

More pointless capital letters. We don't see doctors screaming ........ etc etc. Well that's because they are scientists. We do see them advising their patients and the general public, in a quiet, measured way that alternative medicine may not be right for them.

"But we see it all the time when anything that would question Evolution or the "evidences" they depend upon is brought up."

See what all the time? Screaming? I doubt it. Scientists are not generally given to screaming.

"In no other field anywhere in science is anything defended as Evolution is.

Creationism is defended very strongly, but then creationism isn't a field of science so I guess you're right this time.

"It does not act like science, it is not treated as science."

It does not act like a science; apart from the process of collecting data, formulating theories, collecting evidence, testing the theories, making predictions and testing the predictions.

It is not treated as science; except that actually it is treated as science by, amazingly, the scientific community.

"Only a false religion that has no concept of the term "tolerance" acts in such ways."

Well said, but not just false religion (they're all false). Flawed thinking is the real threat to me and to you and to your children and mine and to the future of the world!

Respect and love from the thinker

"Flawed thinking is the real threat to me and to you and to your children and mine and to the future of the world!"

Why is 'flawed thinking' a threat, if everything got here by chance over billions of years of, apparently mindless, evolution? For that matter, why do we care about the future of the world, if it is all going the way it must go according to the great explosion billions of years ago? If everything is by chance, then it seems to me there is no purpose, as Nietsche said. So, if there is no purpose, where do we come up with the idea that it matters if there is a threat to the future. Maybe, killing one another is 'Nature's way?' of ridding the world of the weaker part of the 'species'.

So, I say, if you are a naturalist evolutionist, don't pretend that there is a universal world ethic of right and wrong. Stop borrowing from a 'Theistic worldview'. You are a parasite, not that there is anything wrong with being a parasite ...right?

Dear Self-Styled Thinker:

Any man who actually thinks will abandon his human hubris and trade in his pride for humility before God. Evolutionists always like to style themselves "free" thinkers, but they are not free to think about the ways of heaven, are they? They are not free to think about approaching God, are they? They are not free to explore God's wisdom. They are not free to think at all!

A thinking person is a humble person, and a humble person will recognize the hand of the Creator, not vaunt himself.

P.S. Nothing is more flawed thinking than the thought that you are the top dog in the universe. God is. You are not.

Sounds like you got a little defensive and quickly escalated from there. There is a question that no one asks or debates, both Evolutionists and Creationists. Who funded Charles Darwin? Where did this scientist get his funding to send him all around the world to prove his theory? One item to discuss is the importance of the words "Natural Selection". Charles Darwin did attend Christian universities but did not agree with the scientific conclusions. Also his funeral was still held by Christians. Charles Darwin was not on a mission to disprove Christianity but only to prove that science deserved a different mindset of conclusions. On Charles Darwin's adventures, he saw slavery being committed and documented his unsettled feelings towards it. However, this was later pushed by universities of Darwin’s time as "Natural Selection".

Universities in the America after 1776 were mostly teaching law and theology education. The industrialists changed much of this in the 1800's. Harvard was a university that taught Presbyterian ministers Theology. By the end of 19th century all these colleges and universities had been converted into law schools for political positions, which is the way it is today. These elite schools are privately funded and extremely hard to get into. If you take the time to study the changes that took place during this century, the grants and funding of these institutions were funded by the industrialists. Today we call them corporations. These international corporations still are funding our universities today. This is somewhat another mater that must be studied on how this works. To save time, I suggest everyone to research how government grants and funding to our schools work on a federal and state level in America. Just to let you know, it works much like this in Europe and most other countries as well.

The problem for the 2% of the families that own the corporations has always been Creationists. Creationists hold the belief we are created equal in the beginning. The ones controlling the universities, the media, and the economical wealth are the natural selected group that is described in the Evolution model. By supporting the Evolution mindset we are agreeing that we are unequal and do not deserve the same respect, like a CEO or politician, as another individual that has gained a powerful position.

So to tackle this obstacle and create a feeling of individual achievement, the Evolutionists will paint a picture of humanity coming together for the purpose of science. If anyone has had the privilege of working in a cubical in a corporation environment, this person would hear the same exact statement referenced differently. Have you ever heard this statement "Individuals are coming together for the better of the company"? Does this sound familiar?

In conclusion, if you are reading this, most likely you are not the two percent of wealth in any country. Also Charles Darwin was not financed by his brother. Charles Darwin was financed by an institution based inside the City of London. I do encourage anyone to study this city because it is being openly admitted that the City of London is owned by a wealth of international corporations that control the cities elections through an Electoral College. Even Forbes has articles concerning the City of London and has published the names of these corporations. If you are still doubting what I am stating here as truth or just theory, I urge you to research both history and economics and prove this conclusion as a myth or lacking proof. I believe that I am a creation from a loving God that created me equal to love my neighbor and God equal. I do not believe in harming other individuals and competing with my neighbor’s life nor his or her pursuit of happiness. Does this not sound like what our founding fathers of our country stated in the American constitution? How is it that our country that originally was founded as a Christian nation quickly escalated into war on foreign policies, into having military bases located throughout the world, and being the example of a international corporation giant with slave shops now creating our GNP? One statement can describe this problem and that statement is “Natural Selection”.

This is the most stupid and intellectually dishonest price of writing I have ever read. And just to clarify, evolution has nothing to say, nor was it ever meant to have something to say on the origin of life, evolutionary theory is ONLY meant to explain the DIVERSITY of life. It is not dying fast, as it is substantiated fact. You people have to realize that you are the minority, the huge majority of Christians do in fact accept evolution, you people are just ignorant. And to also clarify another thing, it is not scientists who question evolution, it is people like you. YOU question, without first even knowing what it explains or predicts and expect a nice reply. You are not going to get that because evolution itself is observed natural phenomena and evolutionary theory explains this phenoma amazingly. You also question it because it is the only aspect of nature that contradicts your primitive idiotic beliefs the most. And might I add that it is only your version of Christianity that it contradicts as the vast majority of other Christians accept evolution. And you also have absolutely no right to determine what science is "it does not act like science" you wouldn't have the first clue of what is scientific or not, and that is clearly evidenced by your iron age beliefs.

So the guy who wrote Origin of the Species didn't come up with the theory of evolution to try to explain the origin of life? What?

Evolution has been observed??? When did you see a species become another species? Can you point to me one missing link in the fossil record that supports this? If you can, be ready to have your name and face plastered on Time and every major publication, because you'll be the first human to do it!

You want a fact? How about the fact that there are hundreds of "living fossils" that have been discovered, some of which are said to be hundreds of millions of years old, that today look exactly like they did in the fossil record, with no evolution? The coelacanth that we now commonly find in deep-sea explorations is pretty much the same distinct coelacanth we find in the fossil record, with no sign of changing into another species.

And keep in mind that any scripturally ignorant Christian who accepts the evolution premise accepts the premise that animals were eating each other for millions of years before man came onto the scene, when the Bible couldn't be more clear that death and carnivorousness came into the world only AFTER Adam sinned, so anyone accepting the evolutionary premise negates any need for a savior through Jesus Christ, and therefore, is not Christian.

The biggest problem with your ignorant theory is abiogenesis and information from nothing. Show me something convincing on these two areas of thought and I will consider something coming from nothing!
Which most reasonable thinkers consider impossible!

Those two things have nothing to do with evolution. Evolution is only concerned with the diversity of life and how it changes over generations. It's the same with how planetary accretion has nothing to do with the Big Bang or the origin of the universe.

All the polls I can find show overwhelming support of evolution among scientists. I am a deistic evolution person myself (believes in God and evolution). There are no laws prohibiting talking about competitive theories to evolution. If there were wouldn't you be in jail or fined? Stand in your front lawn and yell about it. No one will come and "get" you.
