Christians have you found any Biologists to dispute evolution?

or are those lists still consisting of pediatricians and nuclear physicists?


Fair point Polar, apologies.

    Though clearly the minority, biologists, such as the example listed above, are out there who support intelligent design theory, and who find many of the problems of evolution to be irreconcilable with reality. Outside of western world thought, which dictates evolution must believed in biology, many biologists have clear problems accepting the theory of evolution. However, keep this in mind: it does not matter how many biologists believe evolutionary theory, or how many don't. Even if 100% universal consensus did exists, it would not bring the world any closer to the proof needed for Abiogenesis or evolution. There was a time when leading scientists thought the universe revolved around the earth. There was a time when the whole world thought the Earth was flat. The only thing that matters is the truth. And from what I've learned, I firmly believe Intelligent Design to not only be the truth, but also the logical choice.

    It would not surprise me if they could find a few. Given a large enough group you can find all kinds of weird variations in beliefs. I bet there are geologists who believe in the idea of a flat Earth. The real consideration is the evidence involved. Just because a biologist comes forward and says they do not believe in evolution it does not mean that the whole theory is chucked out the window. That biologist would need to come up with a competing theory and present solid facts and evidence to support that theory. So far, no one has been able to do that. Sure, there are some wanna be scientists who slap together some ideas and try to call it a theory but it is very lacking in data, evidence, facts, methodology, and so forth. These always fall apart when looked at with critical thinking.

    The vast majority of the scientific community and academia supports evolutionary theory as the only explanation that can fully account for observations in the fields of biology, paleontology, anthropology, and others. One 1987 estimate found that "700 scientists ... (out of a total of 480,000 U.S. earth and life scientists) ... give credence to creation-science". An expert in the evolution-creationism controversy, professor and author Brian Alters, states that "99.9 percent of scientists accept evolution". A 1991 Gallup poll of Americans found that about 5% of scientists (including those with training outside biology) identified themselves as creationists.

    Additionally, the scientific community considers intelligent design, a neo-creationist offshoot, to be unscientific, pseudoscience, or junk science. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences has stated that intelligent design "and other claims of supernatural intervention in the origin of life" are not science because they cannot be tested by experiment, do not generate any predictions, and propose no new hypotheses of their own. In September 2005, 38 Nobel laureates issued a statement saying "Intelligent design is fundamentally unscientific; it cannot be tested as scientific theory because its central conclusion is based on belief in the intervention of a supernatural agent. In October 2005, a coalition representing more than 70,000 Australian scientists and science teachers issued a statement saying "intelligent design is not science" and calling on "all schools not to teach Intelligent Design (ID) as science, because it fails to qualify on every count as a scientific theory".

    well Im a Spiritual Biologist LOL..and i believe that many parts of Evolution is exaggerated by man LOL..first you gave them wrong names..the Whale shark for example ..one is a mammal and one is a fish but you insist that the two species must combined.so why did you categorize animals into groups on the first place as presented by Taxonomy..and then break your own set of rules LOL

    Can't you have any other names..there is a million out there.

    Christian Biologists claim that if a man were to cut their arm off, why does their child still have an arm? But they have Evolution all wrong. Evolution is a process which takes millions of years.

    Yeah, they made a list of biologists that dispute evolution.

    though in reality they just called engineers and geologists and forest rangers and other assorted non-biologist ppl biologists

    and close enough is close enough when using creationism "science"

    some people can be very smart in some ways and very stupid in others. Generally speaking it's hard to find scientists that still believe in super beings, but it's possible. Doesn't change anything though.
