About the Author
Jerry Bergman has 9 degrees, including seven graduate (= ‘post-graduate’ in some non-US systems) degrees. His major areas of study for his past college work were in biology, chemistry, psychology, and evaluation and research. He graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, Medical College of Ohio in Toledo, and Bowling Green State University among others. A prolific writer, Dr. Bergman teaches biology, chemistry and biochemistry at Northwest State in Archbold, Ohio.
Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is filled with problems. But the problems go back to the foundation of the theory. Scientists are more than ever aware of its problems. This particular book charts the blunders, frauds, and forgeries this theory has used to advance its position. This book may shock you as you see just how desperate people have been to support an unprovable theory of origins.

Chapter 1: Darwin’s blunder has been falsified: Evolution is true, but going backwards
Darwin’s theory of evolution can largely be understood as a scientific blunder. He himself revised his Origin of Species in 6 published versions, substantially modifying the theory. His scientific approach has also repeatedly been called into question as a result of these changes and his overall approach to science. Furthermore, when we examine the so-called “mutations,” we discover that a small amount of them are neutral, e.g., adaptation oriented, and the majority of them are harmful, resulting in the death or impairment of the species. That is why evolution can only be considered true in a backwards sense.
Chapter 2: The pervasive problem of fraud and forgery in paleoanthropology
Some fields claim to be scientific but are far from it. Such is that the case with paleoanthropology. This field is marred by the problem of fraud and forgery. Part of the difficulty comes from people’s passions to prove their own theory of origins. But a large part of the problem stems from saying too much about evidence before the theory(ies) are confirmed. One example has been from the finding of a new jawbone. The issue is what paleontologists try to claim from their evidence. Some will make initial claims that cannot be proven, or as more evidence surfaces, then it becomes certain just how false their claims were. The issue goes back to people wanting to support Darwinian evolution.[To continue reading this summary, please see below....]
