500 Doctoral Scientists Skeptical of Darwin reports today that more than 500 scientists with doctoral degrees have signed a statement expressing skepticism about Darwin's theory of evolution. Many of these scientists are professors or researchers from prestigious institutions such as the Smithsonian Institute, Cambridge University, UCLA, Princeton, Berkeley, etc..

The statement, which includes endorsement by members of the prestigious U.S. National Academy of Sciences and Russian Academy of Sciences, was first published by the Seattle-based
Discovery Institute in 2001 to challenge statements about Darwinian evolution made in promoting PBS's "Evolution" series.

The PBS promotion claimed "virtually every scientist in the world believes the theory to be true."

"Darwinists continue to claim that no serious scientists doubt the theory and yet here are 500 scientists who are willing to make public their skepticism about the theory," said John G. West, associate director of Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture. Click here to read the rest of the story at
