I frequently receive email requesting resource information on the origins debate (slightly more often than I get hate mail from raging atheists 🙂 ). One item that I really love sharing was first shared with me several years ago by a science department head at an East Coast university. It’s the “Dissent from Darwin” list. The list contains hundreds (I believe the recent count was approximately 800) of names of Ph.D. level scientists and M.D.’s who have officially agreed 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.”
Who exactly are these dissenters?
Signers of the Scientific Dissent From Darwinism hold doctorates in biological sciences, physics, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, computer science, and related disciplines from such institutions as Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Dartmouth, Rutgers, University of Chicago, Stanford and University of California at Berkeley. Many are also professors or researchers at major universities and research institutions such as Cambridge, Princeton, MIT, UCLA, University of Pennsylvania, University of Georgia, Tulane, Moscow State University, Chitose Institute of Science & Technology in Japan, and Ben-Gurion University in Israel.
You can read more and download the list at the Dissent from Darwin website.
