Robert B. Eckhardt, Ph.D..(human
genetics and anthropology) (Professor of Anthropology, Pennsylvania State
Genetics and Human Origins.".Scientific American, vol. 226, 1, Jan.
1972, page 94.."Amid
the bewildering array
of early fossil
is there one whose
marks it as man's hominid ancestor? If the factor of genetic variability
is considered, the answer appears to be no."
Referring to comments made
by Richard Leakey, Director of National Museums of Kenya, in.The
Weekend Australian Magazine, May 7 and 8, 1983, page 3."Echoing
the criticism made of his father's habilis
skulls, he added that Lucy's skull was so incomplete that most of it
was "imagination made of plaster
of Paris", thus making it impossible to draw any firm conclusion about
what species she belonged to."
'relatives' from the Laetoli footprints were found in the same strata as
the 'Lucy' bones. Evolutionists, Johanson and others, have claimed these
were made by 'Lucy like' animals, yet when studied by foot doctors, both
and non secular, they found them to be completely human and modern.

and Comparative Physiology of Birds, A.J. Marshall, editor, Vol. 1,

evolutionary origin of birds is largely a matter of deduction.

Edward P. Tryon, Professor
of Physics, City University of New York, USA, "What made the world?".New
March 8, 1984, p. 14."In
1973, I proposed that our Universe had been created
nihilo'), as a result of established
principles of physics.
This proposal variously struck people as preposterous, enchanting, or both.
"The novelty of a scientific
theory of creation 'ex nihilo' is readily apparent, for science has long
taught us that one cannot make something from nothing."
Ilya Prigogine, Professor
and Director of the Physics Department, Universite Libre de Bruxelles 'Can
thermodynamics explain biological order?.Impact
of Science on Society', vol. 23, 3, 1973. "But
let us have no illusions. If today we look into the situations where the
with the life sciences is the most striking—even if we discovered within
biological systems some operations distant from the state of equilibrium—our
research would still leave us quite unable to grasp the extreme complexity
of the simplest of organisms."
Ernst Chain, world famous
biochemist, as quoted by R. W. Clark, in.The
Life of Ernst Chain: Penicillin and Beyond, Weidenfeld and Nicolson,
London, 1985, p. 148.."I
have said for years that speculations about the origin of life lead to
no useful purpose as even the simplest living system is far too complex
to be understood in terms of the extremely primitive chemistry scientists
have used in their attempts to explain the unexplainable that happened
billions of years ago. God cannot be explained away by such
David B. Kitts, Ph.D., zoology,
School of Geology and Geophysics, Department of the History of Science,
University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma, USA, 'Paleontology and evolutionary
vol. 28, September, 1974, p. 467.."Despite
the bright promise that paleontology
provides a means of 'seeing' evolution, it has presented some nasty difficulties
for evolutionists, the most notorious of which is the presence of 'gaps'
in the fossil record. Evolution requires intermediate forms between species
and paleontology does not provide them. The gaps must therefore be a contingent
feature of the record."
George Gaylord Simpson,
Ph.D., Vertebrate Paleontology. Simpson was Agassiz Professor of Vertebrate
of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University and also Professor of Geology
at the University of Arizona, Tucson in.The
Major Features of Evolution, Columbia University Press, New York, 1953,
p. 360.."In spite
of these examples, it remains true, as every
knows, that most new species, genera and families and that nearly all new
categories above the level of families, appear in the record suddenly and
are not led up to by known, gradual, completely continuous transitional
And from "The history of
life" in his.The
Evolution of Life, Sol Tax, editor, Vol. I of.Evolution
After Darwin, The University of Chicago Centennial, The University
of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1960, p. 149.."It
is a feature of the known fossil record that most taxa
