18th AND 19th century scientists Pt 3

Message  Admin le Ven 30 Mar - 0:36

Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) was another genuine scientist.
In the process of studying fermentation, he performed
his famous 1861 experiment, in which he disproved
the theory of spontaneous generation. Life cannot
arise from non-living materials. This experiment was
very important; for, up to that time, a majority of scientists
believed in spontaneous generation.

(They thought that if a pile of old clothes were left in a corner, it would
breed mice! The proof was that, upon later returning to the
clothes, mice would frequently be found there.) Pasteur
concluded from his experiment that only God could
create living creatures. But modern evolutionary theory
continues to be based on that out-dated theory disproved
by Pasteur: spontaneous generation (life
arises from non-life). Why? Because it is the only
basis on which evolution could occur. As *Adams notes,
“With spontaneous generation discredited [by Pasteur], biologists
were left with no theory of the origin of life at all”
(*J. Edison Adams, Plants: An Introduction to Modern
Biology, 1967, p. 585).

August Friedrich Leopold Weismann (1834-1914)
was a German biologist who disproved *Lamarck’s notion
of “the inheritance of acquired characteristics.”
He is primarily remembered as the scientist who cut off
the tails of 901 young white mice in 19 successive generations,
yet each new generation was born with a full-length
tail. The final generation, he reported, had tails as long as
those originally measured on the first. Weismann also carried
out other experiments that buttressed his refutation of
Lamarckism. His discoveries, along with the fact that circumcision
of Jewish males for 4,000 years had not affected
the foreskin, doomed the theory (*Jean Rostand, Orion
Book of Evolution, 1960, p. 64).

Yet Lamarckism continues today as the disguised basis of evolutionary biology.
For example, evolutionists still teach that giraffes kept
20 The Evolution Cruncher stretching their necks to reach higher branches, so their necks became longer! In a later book, *Darwin abandoned
natural selection as unworkable, and returned to
Lamarckism as the cause of the never-observed
change from one species to another (*Randall Hedtke,
The Secret of the Sixth Edition, 1984).
