The DNA is like a computer program copied from disc to disc. It may be accidentally damaged, but it will never repair itself. Genetics provides no evidence for evolution.




The only thing we know about the missing links postulated by Darwin is that they are still missing.



The genetic resources of our planet are systematically declining, even though in the light of evolution they should increase.


DEVOLUTION – a branch of science that, in contrast to evolution the direct effects of which we cannot see, observes a continuous extinction of species and information resources of the biosphere.

Already in 1980 at a congress of evolutionists held in Chicago the palaeontologists admitted that stasis is dominant in the fossil record, the persistence of species in an unchanged form, throughout all the strata in which they are found.


The structure of the DNA of various organisms does not confirm the presumed genealogies and a great role in the structuring of DNA is played by horizontal gene transfer (HGT) between organisms that systematically are very far removed. Viruses are the vectors in these transfers. This new data forces us to modify the notion of a common ancestor.


Petrified trees are found standing vertically embraced by several geological strata. Did they wait millions of years to be swamped by another layer? Obviously they were buried within a single catastrophe. The large number of fossils in sedimentary rocks indicates their catastrophic origin.


“The chance that life formed accidentally is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junk-yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.”

Fred Hoyle, The Intelligent Universe, 1983.

 On Evolution in the European Parliament


On  October 11th, 2006, a conference on the teaching of the theory of evolution in European schools was organized in the European Parliament through the initiative of the MEP, Prof Maciej Giertych.

The organizer declared that he had learnt in school about evolution as a scientific fact proven by palaeontology. His further education (forestry studies at Oxford, specialization in plant physiology and genetics in Toronto) and his later scientific career led Prof Giertych to teaching population genetics to biology students.

During this time he discovered that school textbooks had moved the onus of proof for evolution from palaeontology to population genetics, his scientific speciality. He decided to protest. The claim that the formation of races is an example of a small step in evolution is false, because when races are formed there is a reduction of genetic information, whereas the theory of evolution postulates its growth. School textbooks throughout Europe repeat the same arguments and the same line of thinking. The “proofs” of evolution are identical as those offered by Marxist schools in communist Poland. Why so? Soon he realized that in many natural sciences serious doubts about the theory of evolution have appeared. Numerous scientists provide arguments against the theory of evolution pointing to devolution in nature. These deserve to be known better and thus the idea of holding this session in the European Parliament in Brussels was born.

The first to speak was a palaeontologist, who explained why palaeontology no longer  supplies the main arguments in favour of the theory of evolution. Dr Hans Zillmer, a German palaeontologist, author of several books on evolution (published also in Poland) had participated in numerous excavation expeditions in various parts of the world. He presented beautifully illustrated information about new discoveries indicating the simultaneous occurrence of dinosaurs and humans, about the joint occurrence of fossils that were said to belong to very different geological periods and about the occurrence of completely unchanged forms found in strata that were dated as being separated by hundreds of millions of years.

He also showed photographs of people living today having skulls exactly the same as those of the Neanderthals and of living apes with skulls as those of the Australopithecines.

There is therefore no evolutionary process from apes to humans, but a considerable variation among both living and fossil apes and men. In conclusion, he questioned the current method of dating of the entire stratigraphic column (rock layers).

            The second speaker was a sedimentologist, a hydraulics engineer from the Paris École Polytechnique, Guy Berthault, who presented the results of his studies on the formation of sedimentary rocks. He said that on mixing mercury, water and oil we will obtain clear layers, not because mercury is old and oil is young, but because they differ in specific gravity. The formation of sedimentary rocks is similar. Sediments do not fall from the sky. First there is erosion, then transport and finally sedimentation. During transport the particles rub against one another and are ordered depending on their specific gravity, size and shape. Most commonly transport is carried by water, but it can be also activated by wind or dry earth movement. Berthault views these phenomena behind a pane in large hydraulic laboratories, where water carries a mixture of various materials. The simultaneous formation of many strata is observed. Berthault’s main studies were conducted in Colorado State University in cooperation with Prof Pierre Y. Julien, but currently he works in St. Petersburg, where together with geologists from the Russian Academy of Sciences he conducts simulations of the formation of specific stratigraphic sequences found in the field. Berthault’s results make the entire stratigraphic dating obsolete. He questions the whole stratigraphic column. A great deal of water carrying material from erosion is needed for the genesis of strata. Millions of years are not needed. In fact, minutes, hours and days suffice to explain all the formations. Without millions of years there is no evolution.

The third speaker was Prof Joseph Mastropaolo, a human physiologist from California State University, who proposed that devolution rather than evolution be taught in schools.

The existence of devolution can be demonstrated experimentally. The world is expending itself in terms of energy. The information resources of the biosphere are dwindling. We constantly observe the extinction of some species and we never observe the genesis of new ones. The genetic load, that is, the number of genetic defects within populations of living organisms is growing. Mastropaolo presented alarming data on the geometric increase of genetic diseases in man, endangering the future of our species. The process that is in the opposite direction to evolution can be documented. There is no scientific proof for the process of evolution. He mentioned also various mechanisms through which defects in nature are repaired, such as the healing of wounds, the reconstruction of tissues or organs, immunological resistance to parasites, the formation of cysts rendering foreign bodies harmless etc. The potential for repair is enormous, both on organism and population level, but this has nothing in common with the postulated evolutionary process. No new species appear.

The presented papers and the following discussion manifested that it is high time to reject the theory of evolution in the form that it is offered in European schools. A theory that lacks scientific proof is taught as dogma (or in fact as superstition) instead of scientific truth. The issue needs to be seen from a purely scientific point of view taking into account the most recent discoveries.
