"If someone found evidence against evolution, science would embrace that person" (Claim #E885)
"Science thrives on people finding new ideas that contradict what we currently believe. Therefore, if someone found evidence that contradicted evolution, that person would be a ‘scientific hero.’ Because science has not embraced any such person, we can conclude that no one has found any evidence against evolution."
- Truth should not be determined by numbers, it should be determined by the evidence.
- Many reputable, intelligent, and informed scientists reject evolution.
- This argument ignores the evil in human nature. Some feel that in America we are “not allowed” to speak against Darwinism. 1
- People have personal reasons for believing in evolution. They consider it liberating to deny the existence of God–someone to Whom they must give account for their actions.
- Many evolutionists have made very strong statements against creation. Therefore, they have a lot to lose (respectability, pride) if they admit they were wrong.

- Meyer, 2013, p. 51-52: “In his [J. Y. Chen] presentation, he highlighted the apparent contradiction between the Chinese fossil evidence and Darwinian orthodoxy. As a result, one professor in the audience asked Chen, almost as if in warning, if he wasn’t nervous about expressing his doubts about Darwinism so freely–especially given China’s reputation for suppressing dissenting opinion. I remember Chen’s wry smile as he answered. “In China,” he said, “we can criticize Darwin, but not the government. In America, you can criticize the government, but not Darwin.”” ↩
