Robert Jastrow, astronomer and professor of earth sciences (1981-1992) and chairman of NASA’s space program, was asked what he believed about creation. He stated, “Astronomers now find they have painted themselves into a corner because they have proven, by their own methods, that the world began abruptly in an act of creation to which they can trace the seeds of every star, every planet, every living thing in this cosmos and on earth.”
Jastrow was not alone in his belief about the origin of life. Other leading scientists also expressed their views on creation, and physicist Emerson Cooper stated, “The most established law in science, the second law of thermodynamics, refutes evolution.”
Then you have the testimonies of scientists regarding Darwin’s theory which goes to prove what Jastrow had said about creation.
Physicist H.S. Lipson, realizing the odds against a spontaneous origin for life said, “The only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory (creation) that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it, evolution became in a sense a scientific religion” (“A Physicist Looks at Evolution,” by H.S. Lipson, 1980 vol. 31, p.138).
Zoologist Albert Fleischmann of the University of Erlanngen declared, “The Darwinian Theory of descent has not a single fact to confirm in the realm of nature. It is not the result of scientific research, but purely the product of imagination.”
Louis Bounoure, director of the Strasbourg Zoological Museum, and later director of research at the French National Center of Scientific Research, stated in 1984, “Evolutionism is a fairy tale for grown-ups. This theory has helped nothing in the process of science, it is useless.”
The list goes on and on, but you begin to see that what once was taught as “fact” is anything but fact. Today’s high school textbooks still teach evolution as fact. Why? They were all written by evolutionists!
