And I Quote

"Species do not transform one into the other. They show stability from generation to generation, and my experiments demonstrate that fact. Isn't anyone listening?" -- Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), Father of Genetics.

"The theory of evolution is impossible.... Evolution is a kind of dogma which the priests no longer believe, but which they maintain for their people." -- Paul Lemoine (1878-1940), Geologist, Director of the Natural History Museum in Paris, President of the Geological Society of France.

"(It's as difficult) to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science." "Manned space flight is an amazing achievement, but it has opened for us thus far only a tiny door for viewing the awesome reaches of space. Our outlook through this peephole at the vast mysteries of the universe only confirms our belief in the certainty of its creator." "One of the most fundamental laws of natural science is that nothing in the physical world ever happens without a cause. There simply cannot be a creation without some kind of spiritual creator." -- Wernher von Braun (1912-1977), Space Scientist.

"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." -- Galileo (1564-1642), Scientist of Optics, gravity, and Astronomy.

"I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in." -- George Washington Carver (about 1864-1943), Biology Scientist, Organic Chemist.

Classical Darwinism, as well as neo-Darwinism, maintains macroevolution is nothing more than extrapolated microevolution. But this extrapolation is precisely where appeals to observation stop and hand waving begins. The extrapolation in reality is nothing more than a gigantic leap of faith." -- John Baumgardner, Geophysicist, Plate Techtonics Research Analyst, Fluid Dynamics Scientist.
