18th AND 19th century scientists Pt 22

Message  Admin le Ven 30 Mar - 1:13

The Alpbach Institute Symposium (1969). A follow-
54 The Evolution Cruncher
up meeting of scientists was held and given the title, “Beyond
Reductionism.” But it only resulted in fruitless discussions
by scientists who had carefully researched the
problems, with men who were desperately trying to defend
evolutionary theories, against an ever-growing
mountain of evidence to the contrary.

First Moon Landing (1969). By the 1950s, scientists
were able to predict that, if the moon was billions of years
old, it would have a thick layer of dust many miles thick.
This is due to the fact, as *R.A. Lyttleton explained, the
lunar surface is exposed to direct sunlight and strong ultraviolet
light and X-rays from the sun gradually destroying
the surface layers of exposed rock, reducing them to
dust at the rate of a few ten-thousandths of an inch per
year. In 5 to 10 billion years, this would produce 20-60
miles [32-97 km] of dust (*R.A. Lyttleton, quoted in R.
Wysong, Creation-Evolution Controversy, p. 175).

Because of this, NASA first sent an unmanned lander,
which made the discovery that there is very little dust on
the moon’s surface. In spite of that, Neil Armstrong feared
that he and Edwin Aldrin might suffocate when they
landed. But because the moon is young, they had no
problem. Landing on July 20, 1969, they found an average
of 3/4 inches [1.91cm] of dust on its surface. That is
the amount one would expect if the moon were about 6000-
8000 years old (at a rate of 1 inch every 10,000 years).

In *Isaac Asimov’s first published article (1958), he
predicted that the first rocket to land on the moon would
sink ingloriously in the dust, and everyone inside would
perish (Article mentioned in *Isaac Asimov, Asimov on
Science: A Thirty-Year Retrospective, 1989, pp. xvi-xvii).
Bone Inventory (1971). A complete listing of all the
Australopithecine finds, up to the end of 1971, was printed
in a new book. This included all the African bones of our
“half-ape, half-human ancestors” (*Time-Life, The Missing
Link, Vol. 2).

Although over 1400 specimens are described,
most are little more than scraps of bone or
isolated teeth. Not one complete skeleton of one individual
exists. When parts of bones are found, they, of
course, can be moved into various positions and be interpreted
as belonging to different creatures with very different
skull and jaw shapes. To this day, there is no real
evidence of any genuine non-human ancestor of ours.
Chapter 13 explains why reputable scientists question or
reject the various finds by anthropologists.
*Matthews Attacks Darwinism (1971).

By the latter part of the 20th century, even though the ignorant public
continued to be told that evolution was a triumphant,
proven success, it was difficult to find any scientist who
would defend Darwin’s theories before his peers. *L.
Harrison Matthews, another distinguished scientist,
was asked to write a new introduction to Darwin’s Origin
of the Species, to replace *Thompson’s 1956 Introduction
which scathingly attacked Darwinism.

In his Introduction, Matthews said that Thompson’s attacks
on Darwin were “unanswerable.” Then Matthews proceeded
to add more damaging facts (*L. Harrison
Matthews, Introduction to Charles Darwin, Origin of the
Species, 1971 edition). The evolutionary theory must have
run into hard times, when book publishers cannot find a
reputable scientist who is appreciative either of its basic
teachings or its founder.

Nice Symposium (1972). By the early 1970s, not only
were biological evolutionists in turmoil, but cosmologists
(astronomical evolutionists) were also. The Nice Symposium
met in April 1972, to summarize what had been
accomplished and list what was still unknown. The unanswered
questions included just about every aspect
of evolution in outer space! (See “Nice” in the back
index for a number of the questions.) How did hydrogen
clouds form themselves into stars?

How did linear momentum from the theorized Big Bang change itself into
angular momentum—and begin circling. How did the planets
and moons form? The entire list is mind-boggling. After
all these years, the astronomers still do not have answers
to any of the basic evolutionary problems (Review
of the Nice Symposium, in R.E. Kofahl and K.L.
Segraves, The Creation Explanation, pp. 141-143).
Institute for Creation Research (1972).
