Embarrassing moments in the recent history of evolution

Dr. Jack Horner, one the the world's leading paleontologists, refuses to allow a T. rex specimen to be submitted for carbon-14 dating, because he knows it might erode the theory of evolution.
Dr. Richard Dawkins, the world's most well-known evolutionary biologist, cannot answer a fundamental question:  Has a mutation ever been documented to result in increased genetic information?  Following an embarrassingly long pause, Dr. Dawkins proceeds to dodge the question entirely by rambling about an unrelated topic.

How does the theory of evolution explain these phenomena?

The mantis shrimp of indo-pacific reefs has an irreducibly complex weapon that utilizes energy storage in a unique mechanism, impossible to explain through evolution.

The male Japanese puffer fish spends over a week creating an artistic sand sculpture to attract a female.  This defies evolutionary explanations.

The Lyrebird of south Australia has an ability to imitate sounds that defies belief.  

Consider the digital code that would be required to enable this unintelligent spider to spin this intricate web.

The Philosophical Danger of Evolution

Social Darwinism and World War I

Evidences for evolution:  Propaganda

This is a summary of what are deemed compelling evidences for evolution.  Notice that homology is front and center, and how this position is defended by philosophical arguments.  Haeckel's fraudulent embryos are unabashedly presented as evidence.

This is an excellent example of unscientific storytelling that purports to prove evolution through the existence of "vestiges".

The Fossil Record:  Examples of fraud

In this exchange, Dr. Hans Thewissen is asked why museums around the world display Ambulocetus (proposed whale ancestor) with a partially-evolved blowhole, when there is no fossil evidence of this.

Dr. Phil Gingerich admits that the widely published recontructions

of Rhodocetus (a proposed whale ancestor) were based only on 

speculation and are now deemed to be inaccurate.


This is an excellent refutation of abiogenesis by James Tour, an eminent pioneer of synthetic organic chemistry.  

Professor Dean Kenyon, a former evolutionary biologist, explains how science led him to change his mind and conclude that abiogenesis is impossible.  In this candid discussion, he acknowledges that biologists have a pre-determined commitment to naturalism.


This is a brief summary of current theories of abiogenesis.  To the uninitiated, it appears scientific.  The "evidence" presented is embarrassing in view of the complexity of single cell life, as outlined in Dr. Tour's lecture (left)

Scientists Who Refute Evolution

In this selection, Dr. David Berlinski, a renowned mathematician and molecular biologist, offers many compelling arguments against the plausibility of evolution.
