The Proof is not to be found in the Pudding
By Dr. Charles McGowen

According to Bartlett's

Familiar Quotations, the phrase "The proof of the pudding is in the eating." dates back to at least 1615 when Miguel de Cervantes published Don Quixote. This comic novel follows the adventures of Alonso Quijano who set out to revive chivalry under the pseudonym of Don Quixote. The astute observer of the so called cable news will note how often this four century old phase is misquoted by journalists, political pundits and news anchors; who allegedly took English classes in college when obtaining their communication degrees. They erroneously say “the proof is in the pudding.”

That is exacting what evolutionists are asking our children to believe when they say that the first self replicating, self sustaining cell arose spontaneously out of a primordial soup of suspended organic and inorganic particles; which one may prefer to call “primordial pudding.” The fact that they merely propose the existence of the pudding is supposed to be proof sufficient for their students and none dare taste it, to determine by means of objective experimentation and observation, in order to actually find proof as to whether or not such a marvelous single cell could ever have come from such a theoretical mixture, under various illusionary environmental influences, either by accident eons ago, or on purpose through an intelligently designed experiment in a laboratory today.

In fact, if the students would simply be informed that numerous attempts to prove the efficacy of such a theoretical pudding being capable of producing life from non-life in the field has never been observed, and furthermore that hundreds of intricately designed attempts to create such life from various combinations of soups by living scientists in the laboratory have proven fruitless, they would not even bother to ask for a spoon to taste the theory. The professors fear that since the proof of the pudding (or primordial soup) is actually in the eating, by offering them such an “eating utensil” as for example a reasonable and logical debate, which would ultimately expose the irrationality of the evolutionary side, the students might conclude that the imaginary mixture is not really pudding after all but merely “silly putty.”
