18th AND 19th CENTURY SCIENTISTS
Prior to the middle of the 1800s, scientists were researchers
who firmly believed that all nature was made
by a Master Designer. Those pioneers who laid the foundations
of modern science were creationists. They were
men of giant intellect who struggled against great odds in
carrying on their work. They were hard-working researchers.
In contrast, the philosophers sat around, hardly stirring
from their armchairs and theorized about everything
while the scientists, ignoring them, kept at their work.
But a change came about in the 19th century, when
the philosophers tried to gain control of scientific endeavor
and suppress research and findings that would be
unfavorable to their theories. Today’s evolutionists vigorously
defend the unscientific theories they thought up over
a century ago.
William Paley (1743-1805), in his 1802 classic, Natural
Theology, summarized the viewpoint of the scientists.
Brief History of Evolutionary Theory 17
He argued that the kind of carefully designed structures
we see in the living world point clearly to a
Designer. If we see a watch, we know that it had a designer
and maker; it would be foolish to imagine that it
made itself. This is the “argument by design.” All about
us is the world of nature, and over our heads at night is a
universe of stars. We can ignore or ridicule what is there
or say it all made itself, but our scoffing does not change
the reality of the situation. A leading atheistic scientist of
our time, *Fred Hoyle, wrote that, although it was not difficult
to disprove Darwinism, what Paley had to say appeared
likely to be unanswerable (*Fred Hoyle and *Chandra
Wickramasinghe, Evolution from Space, 1981, p. 96).
It is a remarkable fact that the basis of evolutionary
theory was destroyed by seven scientific research
findings,—before *Charles Darwin first published the
theory.
Carl Linn (Carolus Linnaeus, 1707-1778) was a scientist
who classified immense numbers of living organisms.
An earnest creationist, he clearly saw that there were
no halfway species. All plant and animal species were
definite categories, separate from one another. Variation
was possible within a species, and there were many
sub-species. But there were no cross-overs from one species
to another (*R. Milner,)
