95 Theses

95 Theses Against Evolution (English translation from German)

The website review for this first month of 2019 looks at a site recommended by a reader of our website from the Netherlands.  I believe this site really provides a great deal of information helpful when searching for material concerning the ongoing debate between creation and evolution.

On the Introduction page of the site you learn why the author of 95 Theses Against Evolution chose to present his arguments against evolution in this manner.  “The intransigence among the upper echelons of science, education and the media is strongly reminiscent of the stubbornness with which the Roman Catholic Church of the Middle Ages defended its then worldview.  On October 31, 1517, the reformer Martin Luther published his Ninety-Five Theses with which he challenged the practice of selling indulgences, widespread in his time.  This started a chain reaction, which finally led to The Reformation.  In a similar way, the ninety-five theses presented here are intended to contribute to a rethink in the debate on the origin of life.”

95 Theses Against Evolution is available as a free PDF download. An English book that you can purchase will soon be available.

The PDF version of 95 Theses Against Evolution begins with a short statement of the Back-cover text and then provides a Table of Contents.  From this table you learn how the ninety-five theses are presented:

  1. Biology (sixteen theses)
  2. Geology and Paleontology (fifteen theses)
  3. Chemical evolution (nine theses)
  4. Radiometry and geophysics (eleven theses)
  5. Cosmology and the big-bang theory (thirteen theses)
  6. Philosophy (eleven theses)
  7. Information theory (eight theses)
  8. Humans and culture (twelve theses)

After this listing of the ninety-five theses you will find Ninety-Five One-Sentence Theses against Evolution.

What follows is a detailed description of each of the individual theses and 5eferences to supporting material.  The PDF document contains 239 pages, so there really is a great deal of information to study.  All this information is also available in seven other languages beside English.

EVOSKEPSIS
https://www.evoskepsis.nl/english/index.php

Association of Critical Scientists

This month’s website review looks at another website recommended by a reader from the Netherlands.  From the Welcome on the home page you learn that this is the “website of Evoskepsis, an association of critical scientists and practitioners who are skeptical over the empirical foundation of the ‘innovation motor’ of the theory of evolution.  The objectives of Evoskepsis are the stimulation of the scientific debate over the tenability of the theory of evolution in its current formulation and the defense of science against misunderstanding and misuse.”

The website presents the views of Evoskepsis by the following three topic areas:

  1. Science and religion – Evoskepsis’ view of the relation between science and religion
  2. Vision – Evoskepsis’ vision of the theory of evolution
  3. Problems – Key and secondary problems in the theory of evolution

The different topic areas can be explored by selecting different tabs on the home page or by just selecting a topic from the bottom of the page and then selecting the Read more > link.

From the Science and religion topic, you learn that Evoskepsis believes “Science is a domain of knowledge containing testable theories, which continue to be open for criticism and falsification.  Religion is a domain of knowledge containing theories that need not be testable and mostly aren’t.  They need not be open for debate either.”  Also, “Both science and religion are based on assumptions that cannot be proved.” 

The second topic area, Vision, presents how Evoskepsis believes the scientific debate and criticism over the theory of evolution should be addressed.

The third topic area addresses seven different key problems and twelve secondary problems in the theory of evolution.  Each problem discussed makes for interesting reading.

In addition to the three topic areas presented on the website, on the home page of the site you will find a link to Publications of Evoskepsis.  Here you can explore in more detail why Evoskepsis is so skeptical of many of the common beliefs held by evolutionists today.
