More Quotes From Those Who Do Not Believe In Creation - #14

"I feel that the effect of the hypotheses of common ancestry in systematics has not been merely boring, not just a lack of knowledge; I think it has been positively anti-knowledge . . Well, what about evolution? It certainly has the function of knowledge but does it convey any? Well, we are back to the question I have been putting to people, 'Is there one thing you can tell me about evolution?' The absence of answers seems to suggest that it is true, evolution does not convey any knowledge." - Colin Patterson, Address at the American Museum of Natural History (November 5, 1981).

"Ultimately, the Darwinian theory of evolution is no more nor less than the great cosmogenic myth of the twentieth century." - Michael Denton, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis (1985), page 358.

The following quote is not specifically about evolution. It predates Darwinism. But it points out an important truth about Darwinism:

"Science has been seriously retarded by the study of what is not worth knowing." - Johann van Goethe (1749-1832), quoted in Asimov’s Book of Science and Nature Quotations, p. 257.
