There have been a lot of people over the decades who have taken it upon themselves to campaign against teaching the Theory of Evolution is our public school system and in our universities. While many of these people have obviously been trained solely as ministers, priests, imams, rabbis, etc of their particular faith, others have been presented as having actual scientific credentials. They have been referred to - by themselves and/or by the organizations they have membership in - as "doctor" or similar scholastic titles often, though not exclusively, given to individuals with scientific degrees.

Just because someone is called "doctor" doesn't mean that they have a doctorate in a filed of study related to the Theory of Evolution, such as biology. It doesn't even mean that they have a doctorate from an accredited university. Some of these people have received honorary doctorates from educational institutions which did not require them to actually learn the material. Still others have received "doctorates" from non-accredited institutions, which gives them absolutely no credibility in the scientific community.

But, too many people simply take it at face value that someone referred to as "doctor" and who informs his/her audience that they received this degree from a particular "university" automatically assume that the doctorate in genuine and that they are an expert in the topics of science, including the discussion regarding whether Evolution is an accurate description of the origins of the current forms of modern humans and all other forms of life on Earth and their decent from their earliest ancestors.

I have taken it upon myself to assemble the following list of individuals, living or dead, who are or were vocal opponents of the Theory of Evolution being accepted as scientifically valid and its being taught as such in our school systems. The list does not include honorary degrees, since these are worthless in the scientific community and are often given-out as favor to people who donate large sums of money to particular colleges or who are public advocates of a position the institution supports.

I will be honest in admitting that the list may have inaccurate information, due to difficulty in gathering such information on particular individuals, especially those who have been dead a long time or who have been very secretive or deceptive regarding their educational background. I will also admit that my own limitations may at some times have caused me to include inaccurate or incomplete information. I welcome anyone who notices such shortcoming to post in the comments section at the bottom of this article.

Updates and corrections will be added as the information becomes known to me and as time allows.
