“A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism” is a simple, 32-word statement
that reads:

    “We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation
    and natural selection to account for the complexity of life.
    Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should
    be encouraged.”




  Those who sign it “must either hold a Ph.D. in a scientific field
  such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, computer
  science, or one of the other natural sciences; or they must hold an
  M.D. and serve as a professor of medicine,” according to the

  The group points out that signing the statement does not mean these
  scholars endorse “alternative theories such as self-organization,
  structuralism, or intelligent design,” but rather simply indicates
  “skepticism about modern Darwinian theories central claim that
  natural selection acting on random mutations is the driving force
  behind the complexity of life.”

  According to Discovery Institute Senior Fellow David Klinghoffer,

    only ‘poets,’ ‘lawyers,’ and other ‘daft rubes’ doubt Darwinian
    theory. In fact, I’m currently seeking to place an awesome
    manuscript by a scientist at an Ivy League university with the
    guts to give his reasons for rejecting Darwinism. The problem is
    that, as yet, nobody has the guts to publish it.”
