“I am quite conscious that my speculations run beyond the bounds of true science . . . It is a mere rag of an hypothesis with as many flaws and holes as sound parts.” Those are the words of Charles Darwin in a letter to his scientist friend Asa Grey about his evolutionary theory.


Not many scientists today are willing to admit what Darwin himself conceded about his own theory of the origin of life. The truth is Darwinian evolution is not easily supported, as scientists want us to believe. It is certainly not an indisputable fact. 


What is the origin of life? The Bible still has the best answer. “By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God” [Hebrews 11:3].


Anders Bellis says:
Darwin is not making a general comment on his evolutionary theories. He said this in the context of a discussion with Asa Gray about a very specific problem – how to account for the existence of species of plants for which there were no, or few, closely related species. Darwin had speculated that these disjoined species would be found to come from genera which had very few species in total. This was not based on a great deal of observation however, hence it appeared to him to be unscientific. Yours is an example of the sort of selective and either mistaken or (more probable) intentional desinformation as pertains to Darwin that is fairly common. If one can not beat the facts, the easy way our is to lie and hope that one's audience is ignorant enough to believe the lie.
