Evolution Is True.org

This web site is dedicated to assembling the scientific proofs for the fact of evolution which scientists have over the years used to prove the truth of evolution to the general public.

Indeed evolution is the only reasonable explanation for the origin and evolution of man when these proofs are accepted. Sadly, over-zealous scientists have removed some of these proofs from modern textbooks, though some of these proofs still, thankfully, appear.

Have we forgotten how these proofs captured the imagination and conviction of our forefathers — in some cases going unchallenged for forty or fifty years? It is shameful that many of these proofs were given great fanfare when announced by the scientific community and then, shamefully and unceremoniously retracted, even secretly, from the public's view. What do these nefarious scientists have to hide?

Our goal is to show what fearless, unbiased, and impeccably honest scientists of the world have labored to bring forth to this benighted world — the Truth of man's origins.

Dedication

This web site is dedicated to my intellectual hero, Dr. Richard Dawkins.

Dr. Dawkins, has shown himself to be a man of the utmost integrity, and intellectual courage arguing with a passion and conviction that strikes fear into the heart of his opponents.

One of my favorite articles by Dr. Dawkins is "Why There Almost Certainly Is No God". If Dr. Dawkins says, "almost certainly", I am bound to say his absolute and unconditional confidence is enough for me. Some people "hedge their bets" but not the unequivocal Dr. Dawkins!

Have we not hired scientists such as Dr. Dawkins to do "the hard thinking" for us? Do we not pay them so many thousands per annum? And if so, are we not bound to accept their pontifications and orthodoxy without question?

Has not all scientific progress come through conformist orthodoxies? When our modern scientists blacklist or deny tenure to non-conforming 'scientists', should we not applaud them? Are they not merely putting into practice "survival of the fittest"? When they denounce any competing ideas as "unscientific" but merely religious based appeals for creationism, should we not congratulate them for demonstrating the non-selection of mutated ideas?

When they work to suppress dissenting papers and publications, should we not say, "Yea and Amen"? Remember, we have a liberal tradition of open inquiry and intellectual freedom to uphold. The last thing we need is closed-minded creationists, design advocates, or unbelievers — as Dr. Dawkins calls their thinking "fatuous" "fanaticism" — attempting to show inconsistencies in a system of fact which has been proven over and over and over to be true. You might as well deny the sky is blue my friends. Do these people have eyes or not?

Just try a little asexual bio-morphing for yourself. Or disassemble a watch, put the parts and a box and start shaking. Better yet, add rocks and sand paper to make the experiment a little more realistic. Let's stop being lazy and start providing additional proofs! Who knows, we might come up with other really cool devices! As Dr. Dawkins says,

"Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose." (Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker, 1996, p. 1)

I just love that quote. What piercing insight Dr. Dawkins has! This explains away not only why everything in the world has order and design, but that even apparent purposefulness is, in reality, meaningless. To put it bluntly, a man's bowels might well have emptied from his mouth rather than from his anus if blind chance had not favored us with the appearance of purpose. What a mind Dr. Dawkins has! What genius!

Dr. Dawkin's honesty arguing on behalf of science, and against religious "bigots" and "fanaticism", is found in science classics such as, The GOD Delusion.

The God Delusion

Never let it be thought, dear reader, that this man has a 'dog in the fight' beyond his pure love and advocacy of science:

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." (Dr. Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion, p. 31)

We must work to make sure that such rigorous scientific advocacy remains readily available to the general public in the Science areas of all bookstores. Any attempt to relegate such scientific works to Philosophy, or worse yet, Fiction, or Autobiographed Delusions, ought to be met with derision, complaints, howler monkeys, letter writing, threats to boycott the store, and in short, anything necessary to

keep pure science pure

And free from the

"fanaticism" of religious ideologies

The mere existence of unbelievers, in light of the fact that evolution is, is a personal affront to me and to all my fellow believers. But I digress.

Reviews of Dr. Dawkin's latest book have been overwhelmingly positive. Here are a few excerpts:

"While Dawkins can be witty, even confirmed atheists who agree with his advocacy of science and vigorous rationalism may have trouble stomaching some of the rhetoric: the biblical Yahweh is "psychotic," Aquinas's proofs of God's existence are "fatuous" and religion generally is "nonsense."(Publishers Weekly; Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

"But Dawkins can't restrain his vitriol for those that have put their faith in religion, to the point that he comes off as rabid as those believers whose eyes he yearns to open." (Bookmarks Magazine; Copyright © 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc.)

Yes, indeed, we all yearn with our brother Richard to open the eyes of closed-minded "stupid" "fatuous" "fanatic" "bigots" who will grasp onto any

pig-toothed, ass-jawed excuses

to believe their lies so as to avoid facing the true origins and nature of mankind. What more can we add but, "Even so, speak Lord Richard."
