"Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution" (Bahasa Indonesia: Tiada yang masuk akal dalam biologi kecuali berdasarkan evolusi) adalah sebuah esai tahun 1973 yang ditulis oleh ahli biologi evolusi dan seorang Kristen Ortodoks Rusia Theodosius Dobzhansky, yang mengkritik Ciptaanisme dan mendukung evolusi teistik. Esai ini pertama kali diterbitkan dalam American Biology Teacher, volume 35, halaman 125-129.

Dobzhansky pertama kali menerbitkan pernyataannya ini dengan sedikit variasi pada artikel tahun 1964 dalam American Zoologist, "Biology, Molecular and Organismic", untuk menegaskan pentingnya biologi organismik dalam menanggapi tantangan-tantangan bidang biologi molekuler.[1]

Kutipan[sunting | sunting sumber]

I am a creationist and an evolutionist. Evolution is God's, or Nature's method of creation. Creation is not an event that happened in 4004 BC; it is a process that began some 10 billion years ago and is still under way.

—Theodosius Dobzhansky, "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution" (1973)

Does the evolutionary doctrine clash with religious faith? It does not. It is a blunder to mistake the Holy Scriptures for elementary textbooks of astronomy, geology, biology, and anthropology. Only if symbols are construed to mean what they are not intended to mean can there arise imaginary, insoluble conflicts. ...the blunder leads to blasphemy: the Creator is accused of systematic deceitfulness.

—Theodosius Dobzhansky, "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution" (1973)
