Disagree with Darwin?
Find out about Scientists that do, including some of the most recognised names in scientific history



Below you will find names of some of the worlds most famous scientists, and others that have had big contributions in the scientific community - they all have at least one thing in common - they don't believe the theory of evolution.


These scientists are convinced that evolution is simply not possible, and that there must be a designer for all that we see.  Whilst this list is compelling, the real test of evolution is whether it is possible - or not.  For just a few of the reasons why evolution is impossible, why not visit our Evolution: Impossible section if you have not already done so.

For details on other scientists that doubt Darwin, see A SCIENTIFIC DISSENT FROM DARWINISM:  http://www.dissentfromdarwin.org/

“We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.”

Frequently those who disagree with Evolution and believe that there must have been a creator are labelled as poor-scientists, lacking intelligence or worse.  Those that hold such views must surely have a difficult time when confronted with the fact that some of the worlds best known and influential scientists did indeed dismiss evolution, and believe that there must have been a designer.  To suggest that they did not have the information that we have today, and therefore were mistaken is a poor excuse - the evidence we have today confirms that which was clearly understood at the time - evolution is impossible.

Scientists who believed in a designer:

Robert Boyle 1627-1691
Helped develop sciences of chemistry and gas dynamics

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

He is best known for the formulation of Boyle's law and he is largely regarded today as the first modern chemist, and therefore one of the founders of modern chemistry. Among his works, The Sceptical Chymist is seen as a cornerstone book in the field of chemistry.

Wernher von Braun 1912-1977
Pioneer of rocketry and space exploration

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

A German rocket physicist and astronautics engineer.  He became one of the leading figures in development of rocket technology in Germany and the United States.  Wernher von Braun is sometimes said to be the pre-eminent rocket engineer of the 20th century. and He is also generally regarded as the father of the United States space program, both for his technical and organizational skills, and for his public relations efforts on behalf of space flight. He received the 1975 National Medal of Science.

Michael Faraday
Helped develop science of electromagnets / developed the Field Theory / invented the electric generator.  A Faraday (named after him) is a unit of electrical charge.

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

An English chemist and physicist (or natural philosopher, in the terminology of the time) who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. Faraday studied the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a DC electric current, and established the basis for the magnetic field concept in physics. He discovered electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and laws of electrolysis. He established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became viable for use in technology.

Faraday was highly religious; he was a member of the Sandemanian Church, a Christian sect founded in 1730 which demanded total faith and commitment. Biographers have noted that "a strong sense of the unity of God and nature pervaded Faraday's life and work."

Regarding the hereafter, "Speculations? I have none. I am resting on certainties."

Joseph Henry
Invented the electric motor and the galvanometer / discovered self-induction

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

An American scientist who served as the first Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. During his lifetime, he was considered one of the greatest American scientists since Benjamin Franklin. While building electromagnets, Henry discovered the electromagnetic phenomenon of self-inductance. He also discovered mutual inductance independently of Michael Faraday, though Faraday was the first to publish his results. Henry's work on the electromagnetic relay was the basis of the electrical telegraph, invented by Samuel Morse and Charles Wheatstone separately.

The SI unit of inductance, the henry, is named after Henry, as are derivative units such as the millihenry and microhenry.

William Herschel 1738-1822
Helped develop science of galactic astronomy / discovered double stars / developed the Global Star Catalog

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

A German-born British astronomer and composer who became famous for discovering Uranus. He also discovered infrared radiation and made many other discoveries in astronomy.

Herschel strongly believed that God’s universe was characterized by order and planning. His discovery of that order led him to conclude that ‘the undevout astronomer must be mad'. See also http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v22/i3/scientists.asp

James P. Joule
Developed reversible thermodynamics

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

Joule studied the nature of heat, and discovered its relationship to mechanical work. This led to the theory of conservation of energy, which led to the development of the first law of thermodynamics. The SI derived unit of energy, the joule, is named after him. He worked with Lord Kelvin to develop the absolute scale of temperature, made observations on magnetostriction, and found the relationship between the current through a resistance and the heat dissipated, now called Joule's law.

Johann Kepler 1571-1630
Helped develop science of physical astronomy / developed the Ephemeris Tables

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

Kepler was a German mathematician, astronomer and astrologer, and key figure in the 17th century Scientific revolution. He also incorporated religious arguments and reasoning into his work, motivated by the religious conviction that God had created the world according to an intelligible plan that is accessible through the natural light of reason.

Samuel F.B. Morse 1791-1872
Invented the telegraph

Morse was an American painter of portraits and historic scenes, the creator of a single wire telegraph system, and Morse Code. In time the Morse code would become the primary language of telegraphy in the world, and is still the standard for rhythmic transmission of data.

While a great deal of credit is owed to Morse for the telegraph, the code was equally ingenious. Morse believed that God has put us here for a purpose. God’s good creation is designed to be studied and developed to the glory of God and the benefit of man.

Isaac Newton 1643-1727
Helped develop the science of dynamics and the discipline of calculus / father of the Law of Gravity / invented the reflecting telescope

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

Described as one of the most influential men in human history. His Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, is considered to be the most influential book in the history of science. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, laying the groundwork for classical mechanics, which dominated the scientific view of the physical Universe for the next three centuries and is the basis for modern engineering.

Newton was also highly religious (though unorthodox), producing more work on Biblical hermeneutics than the natural science he is remembered for today.

Newton's stature among scientists remains at the very top rank, as demonstrated by a 2005 survey of scientists in Britain's Royal Society asking who had the greater effect on the history of science, Newton or Albert Einstein. Newton was deemed the more influential.

"Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance." - Sir Isaac Newton

Blaise Pascal 1623-1662
Helped develop science of hydrostatics / invented the barometer

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

Pascal was a mathematician of the first order. He helped create two major new areas of research. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of sixteen, and later corresponded with Pierre de Fermat on probability theory, strongly influencing the development of modern economics and social science. Following Galileo and Torricelli, in 1646 he refuted Aristotle's followers who insisted that nature abhors a vacuum. His results caused many disputes before being accepted

In honor of his scientific contributions, the name Pascal has been given to the SI unit of pressure, to a programming language, and Pascal's law (an important principle of hydrostatics), and as mentioned above, Pascal's triangle and Pascal's wager still bear his name.

Unfortunately, Pascal's most influential theological work, referred to posthumously as the Pensées ("Thoughts"), was not completed before his death. It was to have been a sustained and coherent examination and defense of the Christian faith, with the original title Apologie de la religion Chrétienne ("Defense of the Christian Religion"). What was found upon sifting through his personal items after his death were numerous scraps of paper with isolated thoughts, grouped in a tentative, but telling, order.

Louis Pastuer 1822-1895
Helped develop science of bacteriology / discovered the Law of Biogenesis / invented fermentation control / developed vaccinations and immunizations

Summary from information available on Wikipedia:

Pastuer was a French chemist and microbiologist best known for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of disease. His experiments supported the germ theory of disease, also reducing mortality from puerperal fever (childbed), and he created the first vaccine for rabies. He was best known to the general public for inventing a method to stop milk and wine from causing sickness - this process came to be called Pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of microbiology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch.

Please note: that although Wikipedia is not the most academically accepted source, if it was likely to lean in one direction, then it would be towards evolution. The fact that a secular web site lists these famous scientists as rejecting evolution goes to validate the point.

These scientists are also listed on numerous other web sites as believing the Bible.
