The article by Jean Chen on evolution [“A Mom’s Research: A Deep Dive Into Evolution”] in the June 30 paper was spot on. The Darwinian theory fails to explain how the variety of species occurred (including us) and flourished, in addition to saying nothing about how life itself arose on the Earth.

Since Watson and Crick discovered DNA, and our ability to look into the cell increased, the credibility of the theory of evolution has gone downhill. DNA is a very sophisticated coding system, which Bill Gates has said far surpasses the capability of any work we can currently perform.

Ms. Chen’s comment about the thousand-plus scientists from all over the world decrying evolutionary theory as the basis of all life on Earth is true. The mountain of accumulating research and evidence which dismisses Darwinian theory is astonishing.

Paul Johnson, attorney and student of science: “There is ample reason to believe that Darwinism is sustained not by an impartial interpretation of the evidence, but by dogmatic adherence to a philosophy even in the teeth of the evidence.”

Interestingly, there is also a real danger in the world of science that if you stray from the company line about Darwinism, you are in danger of losing your job.

Chinese paleontologist J.Y. Chen, during one of his visits to the United States, issued the following statement during one of his lectures: “In China, we can criticize Darwin, but not the government. In America, you can criticize the government, but not Darwin.”
