Christians Say the Darnedest Things: You Don’t Have to Know Anything About Science to Discredit Evolution

teaching creationism

The truth is, you do not have to be a scientist to be qualified to speak on evolution. One reason is that evolution is not scientific. As we have stated in many of our articles exposing evolution as a false theory, there has not been one true scientific experiment that can be described as being evolutionary.

Every scientific experiment has been non-evolutionary. The second reason why non-scientists are qualified to speak about evolution is that it is false teaching. Every Christian who knows the truth can pick out the false elements of evolution and expose it for what it is. One does not need to be a scientist to do that.

They just need to know the truth and stick with that. The Bible has taught everyone about false teaching, false teachers, and false prophets, and how to spot them. There is no better teacher than Jesus or God.

    You don’t have to be a Doctor to use the title ‘Dr’. In Mr Tee’s case you don’t even need brain cells. Never mind that he has no understanding of science, his English grammar is poor. I suspect that nobody outside of this blog ever reads him anyway!

      If Tee has a doctorate, it is likely from a correspondence school or a diploma mill. Numerous people over the years have asked him to share where he got his doctorate—without success. He said to one blogger, “Jesus knows, and that’s all that matters.” Most holders of PhDs are more than happy to share their academic CV.

      I do know where he did his undergraduate work. Did he graduate? Good question.

    It’s true that you need not be an expert to speak about any given subject (more’s the pity, it allows ignorance to spread), but to be qualified to speak about something… well, that implies you have achieved some form of qualification in any given field, through years of academic study and research.

    This is probably why certain fundamentalists believe they have exposed evolution as false. They can talk about it, and assume because they can talk about it, they fully understand it, despite never actually undertaking a vigorous education in the field of evolution. Armchair ‘activists’ talk a good game, but that’s all it is, talk.

      Yep. It’s easy to be a ten feet wide and an inch deep on this or that subject. Fundamentalist Christianity is littered with such people. They read a few creationist books and then they think they are experts on science/evolution.

      I went to a Bible college for three years. Outside of Greek class, none of the classes were challenging. Many of them were little more than glorified Sunday school classes with exams. Men would graduate, thinking they had a comprehensive education. Far from it. Midwestern Baptist College gave me one good thing: Polly. My understanding of the Biblical text and Christian theology came from my hard work in the study. I’m not opposed to learning this way, but it’s hard work and you end up with shortcomings that actual classroom work with a competent professor would have fixed. I had to rely on software tools to help me in the areas I was lacking, mainly the original languages.

    I have been working in my industry for 28 years. Am I an expert? To give an overview based on experience, yes. But I am not an expert in the areas where specific expertise and skill sets are required. I work in the fragrance industry, and can discuss fragrance with greater knowledge than most people. But I am not a perfumer – I do not have that particular expertise, though i can speak of ingredients and structure and performanceof fragrance. I am not a regulatory specialist, though I can speak in generalities. I am not a marketing specialist, though I know generally of trends and the markets for various types of products.

    I would in no way consider myself an expert on the topic of evolution. Most scientists aren’t either. One can have a PhD in Biochemistry, for example, and know very little of evolution. But there are specialists in evolutionary biology, or evolutionary ecology, or evolutionary psychology, etc,who have dedicated their study to specific areas of evolutionary work. This means that I cpukd speak in generalities about evolution, but these specialists can address specifics within their field of study.

    All of the comments so far make great points. One thing I’ve noticed is that people who are truly experts, or at least accomplished, in one or more areas will admit that their knowledge doesn’t necessarily extend to other areas. I’ll never forget the time my undergraduate advisor–whom I believed to be the most intelligent person I’d met up to that time–telling me that while she had done extensive work on 17th and 18th Century British writers, “what I know about American writers is on par with what I know about math.”

    While I have very little education in science, my study of literature has taught me that to make a solid argument, you need evidence. So, while evolution (at least, as it’s been defined so far) may not be the perfect explanation of how we came to be, it at least has tangible evidence. The authority of the Bible, on the other hand, comes from nothing more than any person’s belief in it.
