|Evolution in the News - December 1996|
|by Do-While Jones|
Of course, unlike 50 years ago, the overwhelming modern empirical evidence now refutes evolution. But magazine writers are only human, and a powerful ideology, be it secular humanism or anything else, can shape a writer’s conclusions more strongly than scientific evidence.
The most important fact (perhaps the only real fact) in the article is that there is a steadily growing number of scientists who now reject evolution. Evolution is based on 19th century scientific theories that don’t stand the inspection of 20th century science. That’s why scientists are rejecting evolution and looking for another explanation that is more consistent with physical evidence and scientific principles. Scientists, not religious zealots, are fighting most strongly against evolution.
