Famous Scientists Reject Darwinian Evolution

Did the scientists of Darwin’s time accept the theory of evolution? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Some of the most influential scientists of Darwin’s day were hostile to Darwinian evolution. Though Adam Sedgwick taught field geology to Darwin, he flatly rejected Darwin's theory. After reading Darwin's book, he wrote to Darwin that parts of it were completely false and filled him with sorrow. Astronomer Sir John Herschel also rejected Darwin's theory. A fellow of the prestigious Royal Society, he called Darwinian evolution, "the law of higgledy‑piggledy." Evolution claims that life developed spontaneously by time and chance, but Louis Pasteur was motivated to prove that life only comes from life. James Clerk Maxwell strongly opposed Darwinian evolution.

Ironically, it was the churchmen of Darwin's time who embraced Darwinian evolution. This illustrates how a church's lack of faithfulness can change the worldview of an entire culture for the worse.
