Sadly, academic freedom is no longer assured in many countries. This is especially true when it involves espousing views contrary to the theory of Darwinian macroevolution. Numerous instances have been documented where scientists and teachers have either been censored or removed from their positions for allowing or facilitating open discussion of the empirical problems of macroevolution. In fact, one scientist with two earned PhDs in biology, who followed long-standing procedures in allowing a properly peer-reviewed but controversial article to be published in the journal he edited, was publicly vilified and relentlessly persecuted.
As academia has suppressed freedom of speech in this area, another avenue needs to be available to promote accurate information and the free exchange of ideas concerning the debate over Darwinism and alternative theories on origins. Allowing physicians and surgeons to speak on this subject with a united voice in significant numbers is one of the best ways to let the scientific facts be known, and to dispel falsehoods, innuendoes and distortions that often flood the media. To accomplish that goal, Physicians and Surgeons for Scientific Integrity (PSSI) was established as a means for physicians and surgeons to publicly be counted among those skeptical of nature-driven Darwinian macroevolution. In joining PSSI members of the medical profession certify their agreement with the above statement of dissent.
Through the support of its members and others, PSSI will be involved in activities and events to educate the public internationally on this critical subject. These include the distribution of educational materials to high school and college students, teachers and professors, and sponsoring educational conferences, seminars and debates for students and the general public. Please visit the Events section of this website to view previous and future PSSI events.
Any person with an M.D., D. O., D.D.S., D.M.D., D.V.M. or equivalent degree may become a physician/surgeon member of PSSI, while separate memberships are available for other medical professionals and the general public. Information provided to PSSI by its members beyond their name, medical specialty and city of residence will be kept strictly confidential. To join PSSI, simply click here, complete the application and remit the appropriate membership dues. Upon application acceptance physicians/surgeons will be included on the public members’ list and provided access to the appropriate physician/surgeon member-only sections of this website.
