- Sarfati, 1999, p. 13-14: “It’s also hard to believe that evolution is an ‘essential concept’ in biology, because most ‘key aspects of living things’ were discovered by creationists. For example, Louis Pasteur discovered that many diseases were caused by germs and showed that life comes only from life, Gregor Mendel discovered genetics, and Carolus Linnaeus developed the modern classification system, to name but a few creationist pioneers of modern biology. Also, many highly qualified biological scientists of the present day do not accept evolution — their work is not affected in the slightest by whether or not fish really did turn into philosophers.” ↩
