Fraudsters Within

Someone ought to write a book called 'In The Name Of Science - Fraudsters Within' because quite a few pronouncements made in the name of science have been accepted as true, but soon after have been found to be deliberate fabrications. Not that the bulk of scientists do not try to be honest and unbiased in their work, but some have no scruples, and will say anything to 'prove' what they want people to believe.

Take the German zoology professor Ernst Haekel (1834-1919). He was so keen on the theory of evolution that he drew a series of embryos in such a way as to make them all look similar. He believed that all life had a common origin, so all embryos ought to go through an 'evolution' from fertilized seed, to embryo, to newborn which reflects that evolution. Haekel ignored actual embryos and drew what he wanted to see. His fictions were published and accepted into scientific textbooks, and even today many people are unaware that they have accepted blatant lies in the name of science.

Another scientist (H.B.Kettlewell) fraudulently used peppered moths to support his case. He claimed that certain moths in England demonstrated evolution because as the tree trunks the moths were supposed to rest on gradually became darker due to industrial soot, the moths evolved into a darker-winged variety. Since then some of the world's leading journals, for example 'Nature' 396, admit that the moth 'proof' is . . .

Since then some of the world's leading journals, for example 'Nature' 396, admit that the moth 'proof' is bunk. The peppered moth almost never rests on tree trunks during the daytime, and to bolster their theory the fraudsters actually glued or pinned dead moths where they wanted them to be.

Anther 'scientific' fraud was the now infamous 'Piltdown Man' which turned out to be nothing but some doctored fragments of bone deliberately placed where they would be discovered, and interpreted as a 'missing link' until 40 years later when the fragments were examined more closely.

Another kind of fraud practiced by 'science' is the removal of, or refusal to admit evidence that contradicts a point of view already held. After all, most people don't like to be proved wrong, and scientists are no exception. But when only the evidence that supports a point of view is selected, and anything which undermines that point of view is rejected, what do we have but deliberate dishonesty?

A case in point is a fossil that used to be on public display in the British Museum. The fossil depicts the bones of a woman, embedded in Miocene rock (limestone), which was discovered on the island of Guadalope, in the Caribbean. The remains are of a modern type of woman, obviously fully human, but the rock her bones are preserved in is dated at around 25 million years. Evolutionists generally agree that 'modern' man did not appear until about 4 million years ago. The display was removed and hidden in the basement of the Museum.

Within the world of scientists there is pressure on dissenters, especially if they dissent in the areas of Biblical truth, to keep quiet or leave. As Professor Whitten, Professor of Genetics, University of Melbourne, Australia said, "Biologists are simply naïve when they talk about experiments designed to test the theory of evolution. It is not testable. They may happen to stumble across facts which would seem to conflict with their predictions. These facts will invariably be ignored and their discoverers will undoubtedly be deprived of continuing research grants." (1978)

What does God think about all this deliberate fraud, this dishonesty and parading of lies 'in the name of science'? Romans 1:18-22 is one of His responses: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth . . ."
