Limited Variation Has Always Been Understood by Scientists

Wilbert H. Rusch, who died in 2013, was professor emeritus of biology and geology and former head of the Science and Mathematics Division of Concordia College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He wrote that:

One encounters a lot of arrogant nonsense, written by those who ought to know better, to the effect that evolution is as well substantiated and factual as the law of gravity.

In his book, Rusch deals with Carl Linnaeus, the father of modern taxonomy.

It is true that Linnaeus, early in his life, promoted the “fixity of species,” an outmoded idea, but, as Rusch points out that Linnaeus, in later years, proposed a scheme of variation within limits. Modern creationists agree with his more mature assessment: change within limits. By way of contrast, many modern evolutionists hold to variation without limits—that you can get from molecules to man in billions of years if you also have a lot of a non-entity, aka, luck.

Many think of Mendel as the father of modern genetics. Read what he said below. This is in harmony with what the father of modern taxonomy said.


In section 10 we read,

It is willingly granted that by cultivation, the origination of new varieties is favored and that by man’s labor, many varieties are acquired, which, under natural conditions, would be lost, but nothing justifies the assumption that the tendency to formation of varieties is so extraordinarily increased that the species speedily lose all stability, and their offspring diverge into an endless series of extremely variable forms.

Many modern evolutionary scientists think science must be atheistic, that is, naturalistic. They are slam-dunk wrong. Isaac Newton, one of the greatest of all modern scientists, not only affirmed God but also “God the Son.”

The true “Father of all sciences” is the Creator Christ. He created the universe whether you believe it or not. He is also the Savior, your only hope for heaven.

Hi, I’m Cheri Fields: 2nd generation homeschooling mom of seven, wife, writer, and science lover. There is a wealth of information available to help people see how trustworthy God and His testimony in the Bible is. The key is to explain concepts simply so they can be understood by anyone. This is my goal, and I’ve had a lot of fun tackling areas where the world tests our faith.
