The historic Science Textbook Struggle -- a worldwide battle about the origin of the universe, life, and man -- erupted without warning. It caught the scientific illuminati completely by surprise. Why? Because science textbooks had become filled with wild, unbelievable stories about the beginning of everything. And those tales were simply not scientific! The universe starting with a Big Bang, life arising out of a soup of lifeless amino-acids, humans produced by apes . . . those myths had only replaced ancient Greek mythology and were being passed off as scientific truths! Caught in the crossfire between educators, news media, textbook publishers, religious notables, and world renowned scientists -- including nineteen Nobel laureates -- was a private citizen. Father of six schoolchildren, he had only one goal: to prove that science never will have answers for origins! He was up against the arrogance of scientists who were determined to disguise their private beliefs as being the only explanations for the origin of the universe, life, and man. This story concludes with a great victory for objectivity -- with more than 200 changes being made in textbooks -- over the objections of the National Academy of Sciences. All discussion about origins was transformed -- by admission that stories about them are based solely on personal views of individual scientists. Remarkably, 3,000 scientists around the world later signed an affirmation to assure that this issue of belief-over-fact in science never be repeated. Wernher von Braun, father of America's space program, writes in the Foreword: "Vernon Grose, in tracing out in Science But Not Scientists his personal involvement in the vortex of these two forces, illustrates one more time the humanity of scientists - their likelihood of being just as prejudiced and bigoted as anyone untrained in science. He properly calls for objectivity rather than scientific consensus.
