"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
When a well-respected scientist says anything that is critical of Darwinism, two things are bound to happen. First, evolutionists will put pressure on the scientist to retract his comments. The second thing is that creationists will quote the scientist to show that even some scientists understand the weaknesses of evolution. This is what we are doing on today's broadcast.
In his book A Different Universe, Nobel Laureate Robert Laughlin, a professor of physics and applied physics at Stanford University, wrote that evolution is anti-science and actually impedes scientific investigation. Laughlin wrote he is concerned that much "present-day biological knowledge is ideological" and cannot be tested.
Here is an excerpt of what he wrote: "Evolution by natural selection, for instance, which Charles Darwin originally conceived as a great theory, has lately come to function more as an anti-theory, called upon to cover up embarrassing experimental shortcomings and legitimize findings that are at best questionable…. Your protein defies the laws of mass action? Evolution did it! Your complicated mess of chemical reactions turns into a chicken? Evolution! The human brain works on logical principles no computer can emulate? Evolution is the cause!"
Now, let me point out that Creation Moments is not saying that Dr. Laughlin rejects evolution. He is merely saying what we have been saying for many years. Evolution is an ideology that is simply assumed to be true. Rather than being a scientific theory, it is an anti-theory that clearly lies outside the realm of true science.
