are there any well qualified biologists that reject evolution?

i have heard that there are plenty, but most of the names given as examples have nothing to do with biology. And of the ones that do, it seems that none of them actually reject evolution, they just think that god had a role in it.

have i missed anyone?

    There are a few biologist creationists who went through the entire process of getting a PhD in biology just so the ID movement could have someone with letters and the word biology after their name rejecting evolution, and also to make technical sounding arguments full of esoteric polysyllabic words that you need to have a background in biology to know why their arguments are junk.

    Jonathan Wells is a good example. He went to get a PhD in biology with the explicit intent of destroying evolutionary theory. He has failed but at least he gets paychecks from The Discovery Intitute.

    Good point. The Intelligent Design craowd claim they are "winning" over evolution, but really they accept many premises of it and just think you can put it in a religious framework. They still seem to see the world as VERY old and must see certain Bible stories as alegory. You can't argue the Permian explosion proves God without believing in the Permian period millions of years ago.

    And anyway, those claims are overstated.

    You seem to think Evolution is one thing. It isn't. Not at all. That is what Gould was fighting against. Dawkins and he had some nasty bouts.

    see page 147 of

    What's So Great About Christianity?

    Dinesh D'Souza

    Quotes from Dawkins and Dennett which led Gould to call them "Darwinian fundamentalists."


    PS IS it me or are the Evolution Fundamentalists increasing ?

    I am another person who has looked into this. I found none. I would really love to hear such thoughts.

    Michael Savage (ultra right-wing conservative talk-show host) surprised me by being pro-evolution, and he does have a degree in biology.

    Not really. Evolution is such a powerful explanatory tool, with SO much evidence to support it that it's pretty much accepted as fact by all intelligent people.

    Well qualified biologists don't go to work at Liberty University or Bob Jones University.

    The last one mentioned by a creationist friend of mine turned out to be a geologist (sort of) who got his degree from a school operating out of a hotel room in Mission Viejo. My friend was somewhat disappointed when I told him.
