"...as I became exposed to the law and order of the universe, I was
literally humbled by its unerring perfection. I became convinced that
there must be a divine intent behind it all... My experiences with science led me to God. They challenge science to prove the existence of God. But must we really light a candle to see the sun?"
--Dr. Wernher von Braun.
"Curious as that seems, it is a possibility worth weighing — against the only alternative I can imagine: Eddington's suggestion that God is a mathematical physicist." — George Wald, "Fitness in the Universe," Origins of Life, Vol. 5 (1974), p. 26.
“The missing link between man and the apes…is merely the most glamorous of a whole hierarchy of phantom creatures. In the fossil record, missing links are the rule: the story of life is as disjointed as a silent newsreel, in which species succeed one another as abruptly as Balkan prime ministers. The more scientists have searched for the transitional forms between species, the more they have been frustrated… Evidence from fossils now points overwhelmingly away from the classical Darwinism which most Americans learned in high school…” [Newsweek, Is Man a Subtle Accident? Nov. 3, 1980 p. 95.]
“One wonders why, with all the evidence, the (Godless) theory of evolution still persists. One major reason is that many people have a sort of vested interest in this theory. Jobs would be lost, loss of face would result, text books would need to be eliminated or revised.” (Dr. Emery S. Dunfee, former professor of physics at the University of Maine at Farmington)
“Polls have shown that about 40% of scientists acknowledge a supernatural power. But the majority of the scientific community, especially evolutionary leaders today, hold an atheistic worldview. As support for their anti-supernatural worldviews, these scientists need mechanisms for the origin of life, especially humans.
Atheism needs evolution to escape from any implications regarding a creator.
If one starts with Darwinism, certainly it is easy to escape from any obligation to God. Those opposed to their reasoning are branded as obscurantists who are trying to intrude religion into science.”
(Wayne Friar, Ph.D., AIA’s Resource Associate for Science and Origins)
“I shall discuss the broad patterns of hominoid evolution, an exercise made enjoyable by the need to integrate diverse kinds of information, and use that as a vehicle to speculate about hominid origins, an event for which there is no recognized fossil record. Hence, an opportunity to exercise some imagination.” [American Anthropologist, Distinguished Lecture; Hominoid Evolution and Hominoid Origins, by David Pilbeam. Vol. 88, No. 2 June 1986. p. 295.]
“Question is: Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing that is true? I tried this question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. - - Then I woke up and realized that all my life I had been duped into taking evolutionism as revealed truth in some way.” Dr. Colin Patterson, Evolution and Creationism, Speech at the American Museum of Natural History, New York (November 5, 1981), pp. 1,2. Dr. Patterson is senior paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History and editor of its journal, as well as author of the book Evolution.
“A scientific study of the universe has suggested a conclusion which may be summed up in the statement that the universe appears to have been designed by a pure mathematician.” — Sir James Jeans, The Mysterious Universe, p. 140.
Consider a famous Neanderthal fossil discovered in a peat bog near Hamburg, Germany, dated by Professor Reiner Protsch. On February 18, 2005, Protsch was forced to retire in disgrace after a Frankfurt University panel ruled he had “fabricated data and plagiarized the work of his colleagues.” Once believed to be a world-renowned expert on carbon dating, Protsch’s entire professional career is now being questioned. The university noted: “The commission finds that Prof. Protsch has forged and manipulated scientific facts over the past 30 years.”
Protsch’s work first attracted suspicion when scientists at Oxford wanted to double-check the authenticity of his dates and verify the ages of many previously reported fossils using modern techniques. Oxford officials insist that this “dating disaster” was discovered during a routine examination, and was not an attempt to discredit Professor Protsch. The fossils he had dated were just in a long line of others that were being rechecked. According to Thomas Terberger, the archaeologist who discovered the hoax: “[A]nthropology is going to have to completely revise its picture of modern man between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago” (as quoted in Harding, 2005).
But the Neanderthal skull was not the only forgery Oxford discovered. Protsch also had paraded “Binshof-Speyer” woman before the public, stating that she was 21,300 years old. Yet the new Oxford date puts this woman living at 1,300 B.C. Protsch also claimed that “Paderborn-Sande Man” walked the Earth 27,400 B.C., and yet the corrected figure reveals that he died only a couple hundred years ago—in A.D. 1750! Futhermore, Protsch also is being investigated for a scandal in which he allegedly tried to sell 280 chimpanzee skulls to individuals in the United States for $70,000.

As far as the excuse that this is how Science works—that Science is self-correcting—how many times will pre-history have to be re-written, and how many millions of people have been deceived by this and other lies sold to the public as ‘major pieces of evidence?’ (i.e., the many other hoaxes such as Piltdown Man, Nebraska Man, Lucy, Heidelberg Man, Peking Man, New Guinea Man, Cro-Magnon Man, Java Man, Ramapithecus, Orce Man, Archaeoraptor Liaoningensis, etc.)
National Geographic published an article on Archaeoraptor in 1999. And yet, Archaeoraptor was a fraud. It was concluded that the fossil was a composite specimen of at least 3 specimens, with a maximum of five separate specimens.
Here is yet another case where Evolutionists have claimed evidence which has later turned out to be false:
"In July 2002, anthropologists announced the discovery of a skull in Chad with "an unusual mixture of primitive and humanlike features." The find was dubbed "Toumai" (the name give to children in Chad born close to the dry season) and was immediately hailed as "the earliest member of the human family found so far." By October 2002, a number of scientists went on record to criticize the premature claim -- declaring that the discovery is merely the fossil of an ape."
To call this the "scientific process" is dishonest, because, according to Wikipedia, the 'scientific method' means that the "steps must be repeatable in order to predict dependably any future results."
Even calling 'Evolution' a 'theory' is not strictly accurate, because "a theory is a systematic and formalized expression of all previous observations, and is predictive, logical, and testable."
The origin of the universe is not repeatable. And evolution of new species is not observable. Therefore, neither one can be proved or disproved by the scientific method; this means that Evolution is a philosophy rather than true Science.

"Just when you think Evolutionists couldn't be any more confused about the origins of Humanity, they go and prove you wrong. According to the Evolutionist's Aquatic Ape Theory (AAT) we all came from apes that lived underwater, much like the Sea-Monkeys seen in the back of old Archie comic books."

Unexplained sightings of the Loch Ness monster could have been elephants enjoying a swim, a scientist has said.
