All the Smart People

Even though any person who has ever dealt with logic understands that a groundless appeal to authority or “those on the bandwagon” carries no legitimate weight; it does not change the fact that at the popular level, many individuals have been persuaded to believe false ideas based on the argument that “the authorities” believe a certain way, or that “most people” believe something. Such is the case with the hypothesis of evolution. Richard Dawkins once stated: “It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid, or insane (or wicked, but I’d rather not consider that)” (1989, p. 7). The implied argument in Dawkins’ statement is that smart, sane, knowledgeable, and noble people believe in evolution. In fact, one of the most powerful arguments used by evolutionists to convince the populace of evolution’s alleged truthfulness is the false idea that “all smart people believe in evolution,” or that “all scientists” believe in evolution.

To set the record straight, it should be noted that such a notion is false in every sense of the word. From ages past to the present, literally thousands of brilliant minds have recognized the falsity of organic evolution, and have embraced the truth that this Universe was created by a divine Designer. The following litany is but a scratch on the surface of names that would fall into this category.

SCIENTIST CONTRIBUTIONS TO SCIENCE

Lord William Kelvin Absolute temperature scale; study of

thermodynamics; transatlantic cable

Louis Pasteur Bacteriology; law of biogenesis; vaccination

and immunization


Joseph Lister Antiseptic surgery


Michael Faraday Electric generator


Robert Boyle Chemistry


Johannes Kepler Celestial mechanics


Wernher von Braun Space program; NASA (for list see Huse,

1997, pp. 159,184-185)

{This article is probably fairly old and very short but to the point but we are going to give you a much bigger and more complete list. The number of brilliant people that don’t believe in Evolution and/or believe in God is staggering. You can look at the scientists section on this site at Gifts of the Believers for starters. Today we are seeing a revival of people coming to the conclusion that a Godless universe is impossible. Today we have such brilliant people on the Intelligent Design like Behe, Stephen Myer and too many others to mention. Really on the other side are bad philosophers lol}
