Taken from my daughter’s high school biology book:
George Wald, winner of the 1967 Nobel Prize for Medicine, Harvard University biology professor and author of Frontiers of Modern Biology on Theories of Origins of Life (1972) stated plainly:
“I do not want to believe in God. Therefore I choose to believe in that which I know is scientifically impossible, spontaneous generation leading to evolution.”
Wow. George Wald, a son of Jewish immigrants who spent his life observing and studying the handiwork of God, ‘exchanged the truth of God for the lie’ (Romans 1:25). A man far more intelligent than myself, yet lacking wisdom.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…Proverbs 1:7
Interestingly, his Nobel Prize was for discoveries concerning the primary physiological and chemical visual processes in the eye.
Let me just say how thankful I am for the freedom to educate our children the way we choose, and thankful that the Truth is not fragile. I’m grateful that we can discuss opposing views without getting our feathers ruffled (most of the time!) because we have a Solid Rock to land on, not shifting sands of public opinion or ‘new research’. What’s new to God, anyway?!
