"I think it makes perfectly good sense that the Kansas Board of Education has deleted any mention of evolution from the state’s science curriculum. A state’s curriculum should reflect the intellectual level of its leaders. If, indeed, those leaders have second thoughts about evolution, it may be

Biochemist, Dr. Duane Gish, notes, "Evolution is the most wasteful, inefficient and cruel method that could ever be devised to create living things ... mutations (the process of evolution) leads almost always to bad outcomes: crippling, sickness, disfigurements and deaths. Good mutations are rare

“Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree, discussing things that are said to be.
Said one to the others, ‘Now listen, you two, there’s a certain rumor that can’t be true;

Biochemists like Michael Behe showed the world the enormous complexity of biochemical systems, like the bacterial flagellum and the translation of light into electrical signals in the retina. They argued–and still haven’t been refuted–that the biochemicals–enzymes and proteins–used to create these

The French Mathematician, Lecompte de Nouy, examined the laws of probability for a single molecule of high dissymmetry to be formed by the action of chance. De Nouy found that, on an average, the time needed to form one such molecule of our terrestrial globe would be about 10 to the 253 power
