“I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible” - The Evolutionist’s Bias
When it comes to the origin of life, Evolutionists have to believe impossible things. Image courtesy of Wikipedia.
George Wald, who shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1967, was an ardent evolutionist. He was quite outspoken of his reason for rejecting God:
“There are only two possible explanations as to how life arose: Spontaneous generation arising to evolution or a supernatural creative act of God...There is no other possibility. Spontaneous generation was scientifically disproved 120 years ago by Louis Pasteur and others, but that just leaves us with only one other possibility...that life came as a supernatural act of creation by God, but I can’t accept that philosophy because I do not want to believe in God. Therefore I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation leading to evolution.”
One might perhaps think that if something is scientifically impossible, it should not be called science – as it isn’t.
