“Over the years, the approach taken by Science Against Evolution has evolved. The original plan was to send one newsletter to everyone in Ridgecrest to try to build up a nucleus of people who would sponsor speakers from the Institute for Creation Research, or Answers in Genesis, to give scientific lectures about creation and evolution.”
I don’t know if they have any overt religious affiliations, but going by what I’ve quoted above from their article, they sound like they’re just another creationist, young earth group.
“Evolution” is not a belief system, believe it or not, and scientists don’t “believe in” evolution the way people “believe in” a religion. Nobody expects anybody to treat evolution as an article of faith. Evolution is a scientific theory, and scientists examine it as they would examine any theory. If they find any flaws, or scientific evidence that doesn’t seem to fit, they point this out and try to figure out what this means.
These folks are using this fact to try to turn science into pseudoscience. That’s why they jump on things published in journals like Science and Nature which, on the surface, can appear to be calling into question some aspect of the theory of evolution as we understand it right now. Strong as the evidence is for evolution, there are plenty of things about it that aren’t all that completely understood yet, and scientists work in those areas. That doesn’t mean they’re questioning the theory of evolution as a whole. It means they’re trying to clarify certain aspects of a scientific theory and correct any errors. That’s the way knowledge progresses. There can’t be any sacred cows in science.
