$1000 Reward for finding an evolutionist that completes a Life Science Prize Mini-Trial.
$1000 Omniscient Originality Prize for two or more living things that are identical. It is predicted that this prize also will go unclaimed indefinitely because there is no such thing as a homologue, or an evolution sequence, or micro-evolution, or macro-evolution, or mosaic characteristics, or a common ancestor, by reason of the fact that all living things are devolving, dynamically engineered, unique inventions of omniscient originality. See Biology for the 21st Century and the Life Science Prize Tested Devolution, Evolution, and Genesis, 2005, p. 16. (Originality Prize offered on 3-18-07.)
"Default-judgment. Judgment entered against a party who has failed to defend against a claim that has been brought by another party." -Black's Law Dictionary.
For years, the claim has been made that evolution is an inverted-fantasy religion taught in the public schools in violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. The Debate Dodgers (see below) unanimously have failed to defend in court against that claim. Therefore, the default-judgment applies to all evolutionists in general and particularly those on the Debate Dodgers List. This is proof positive that evolution is an inverted-fantasy religion taught in the public schools in violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.
Evidently, evolution is devoid of scientific evidence. As an acid test of that finding, the most outspoken evolutionists worldwide bar none were challenged to contend for the Life Science Prize. The rules and results follow. These data confirm the scientific peer reviewed articles of objective, valid, reliable, and calibrated evidence that evolution exists nowhere in the universe, never has, never will, except as an inverted fantasy based on vitalism superstitions 2,500 years old.
Therefore, we are the stewards, not the animals. (9-1-09)
1. The evolutionist puts $10,000 in escrow with the judge.
2. The creationist, Joseph Mastropaolo, puts $10,000 in escrow with the judge.
3. If the evolutionist proves evolution is science and creation is religion, then the evolutionist is awarded the $20,000.
4. If the creationist proves creation is science and evolution is religion, then the creationist is awarded the $20,000.
5. Evidence must be scientific, that is, objective, valid, reliable and calibrated.
6. The preponderance of evidence prevails.
7. At the end of the trial, the judge hands the prevailing party both checks.
8. The judge is a superior court judge.
9. The venue is a courthouse.
10. Court costs will be paid by the prevailing party.
Alternative Rules for the Life Science Prize Mini-Trial
To accommodate, especially those fearful of contending against creation, these modified rules were offered in vain to some organizations, some universities, and some evolutionists like Dr. Francisco Ayala.
1. The evolutionist puts a $10,000 check in escrow with the judge.
2. The devolutionist, Joseph Mastropaolo, puts a $10,000 check in escrow with the judge.
3. If the evolutionist proves evolution is science, then the evolutionist is awarded the $20,000.
4. If the devolutionist proves that devolution, the opposite of evolution, is science, then the
devolutionist is awarded the $20,000.
5. Evidence must be scientific, that is, objective, valid, reliable and calibrated.
6. The preponderance of evidence prevails.
7. At the end of the trial, the judge hands the prevailing party both checks.
8. The judge is a superior court judge.
9. The venue is a courthouse.
10. Court costs will be paid by the prevailing party.
Note. There is no limit to the number or qualifications of those on the evolutionist's side. If the evolutionist has the scientific evidence, then there is also no limit to how many times the evolutionist may contend and win $10,000 (in less than six months, that could exceed $1 million).
Default Judgment (Debate Dodgers) List as of May 2013
A default-judgment debate dodger is a creation, devolution, intelligent design, or religion basher who declines to contend with scientific evidence. To date, those evolutionists individually and by organization invited to contend are more than 374,000, and none will contend because they have no scientific evidence to support their insulting public statements. For modern times, they are premier examples of anti-scientists because all of their so-called evidence is either superstitions (12%), frauds (74%), or forgeries (14%). See Rise and Fall of Evolution, A Scientific Examination, 2003, pp. 63-77.

143. Dr. Guy Consolmagno, Vatican astronomer, Fordham University visiting professor, Brother in the Society of Jesus, claims on his web site without evidence that Genesis is pagan and creationists believe in a flat Earth, whereas scientific and historical evidence support Genesis and prove that evolution is based 12% on superstitions, 74% on frauds, 14% on forgeries, and the vitalism worship of the pagan goddess, Gaea, the Great Mother Earth.

179. Dr. Peter Enns, Senior Fellow of BioLogos, believes that God, the mega-engineer, would use the inverted superstition, evolution, 340 years out of date to create and to maintain life. That is an insult to anyone believing in God and to anyone calling such a stupidity, science.
180. Dr. Denis O. Lamoureux, Associate Professor of Science & Religion at St. Joseph's College, University of Alberta, wrote "Adam never existed," and the God of the Bible “created the universe and life through evolution.” He believes that the God of the Bible, the mega-engineer, would use a 340 year old superstition, evolution, to create life. Pity the poor students who may try to make sense of what he teaches.
181. Dr. Daniel J. Kruger, University of Michigan, teaches "An evolutionary approach to psychology," but has no science to support his superstition.
182. Dr. Sean B. Carroll, University of Wisconsin, teaches the evolution of animal diversity, but has no science to support his superstition.
183. Dr. David R. Montgomery, Professor of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington Seattle, claims "that geologists have . . . a vast array of evidence that refutes both a young age for Earth and a worldwide flood." Upon request, scientists making such claims are obliged to send their best scientific evidence. Upon request, Dr. Montgomery sent none and that suggested he has none or he is not a scientist. 11-24-2012.
184. Zach Kopplin. "Known as "one of the fiercest and most feared advocates for education reform in Louisiana." He evidently is all brass and bluff because he has not one iota of scientific evidence to support evolution, the 340 year old superstition. 2-2-2013
185. Hemant Mehta. This pitiful "friendly atheist" and Patheos web site bloggers claim without any evidence that Answers in Genesis Creation Museum's "quality of information is worthless, which makes the ‘museum' nothing more than an expensive way to confuse and indoctrinate children."
186. Penn Jillette, calls evolution science and the alternative, "creationist crap," yet presents not one iota of scientific evidence to substantiate his claims. 10-14-2013
187. Dan Phelps. Billed as "among the most active scientists in debunking Answers in Genesis’ Creationism Museum," gave not one shred of scientific evidence to contradict any of the Museum's exhibits. 11-1-2013.
188. Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. He has appeared on multiple media outlets claiming that evolutionism is science. But he cannot back up his claims with scientific evidence. 3-18-14.

10. National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). Over 40 officials. Spokesman, Dr. Gerald F. Wheeler, Executive Director, admitted that evolution never existed.
11. Seven presidents of various geological societies that sought the censorship of a Young Earth Creation Grand Canyon book in a 16 December letter to Grand Canyon National Park: William I. Ausich (Paleontological Society), Robert E. Dickinson (American Geophysical Union), Cathryn A. Manduca (National Association of Geoscience Teachers), John C. Steinmetz (Association of American State Geologists), Hans-Dieter Sues (Society for Vertebrate Paleontology), Barbara J. Tewksbury (American Geological Institute), and Robert van der Voo (Geological Society of America).
12. American Institute of Biological Sciences, Dr. Joel Cracraft, President, and Dr. Richard O'Grady, Executive Director.

14. Society for Neuroscience (organization of basic scientists and physicians who study the brain and nervous system)
15. Nobel Prize Assembly, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
16. Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers. All of the Board Members (N=12) were challenged.
17. York College of Pennsylvania. Nine (9) signatories to a letter pressuring the Dover, PA school Board to censor criticism of evolution and to censor Intelligent Design.
18. University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. 36 signatories to a letter pressuring the Dover, PA school Board to censor criticism of evolution and to censor Intelligent Design.
19. Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Dr. Christian Semper, Director; Mr. Randall Kremer, Public Affairs Director; Lucy Dorrick, Associate Director for Development and Special Events.
20. Lehigh University, the entire Department of Biological Sciences, with the exception of Professor Michael J. Behe, published their “unequivocal support of evolutionary theory and that intelligent design has no basis in science, has not been tested experimentally, and should not be regarded as scientific.” Even with the enticement of $10,000 per person per trial without limit, all failed to document those words with scientific evidence. Given that science is based on the truth, Professor Behe evidently is the only scientist in the Department of Biological Sciences. Given their intent to deceive, the rest qualified themselves as anti-scientists.
21. University of Idaho. Dr. Timothy P. White, President. Biological Sciences and Chemistry Departments.
22. Cornell University. Dr. Hunter Rawlings III, Interim President, and all faculty evolutionists.
23. National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Bruce Alberts, President.
24. Stanford University. Dr. Philip Pizzo and 13 Stanford evolutionist faculty members.
25. SETI Institute. Scientists and Senior Staff of the SETI Institute. (SETI is Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence.) Dr. Jill C. Tarter, Project Director, Center for SETI Research, said, "As we say in SETI, 'Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.'" Contrarily, scientists would say, “We have looked everywhere and found nothing. Given our instruments and methods, our conclusion is that there is no extraterrestrial intelligence anywhere in the universe. Planet Earth has a unique biosphere.
26. University of Kansas. Robert Hemenway, Chancellor; Paul Mirecki, Religious Studies Department Chairman; thirteen (13) selected faculty members of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. (Paul Mirecki proposed a class called, "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism, and Other Religious Mythologies," because he claimed, "The KU faculty has had enough...Creationism is mythology and Intelligent design is mythology. It's not science.” Subsequently, the proposed course was not approved and Associate Professor Mirecki resigned as department chairman.) No one at the University of Kansas has any scientific evidence in support of evolution.
27. Paleontological Research Institution. The PRI (an affiliate of Cornell University) staff developed a special workshop and a 13-page guide book for museum guides and docents to use in order to defend against creationists questions.
28. The Royal Society. This organization claims to be, “UK’s national academy of science.” All fellows were challenged via most of the Council. The Council is made up of 21 Fellows of the Society who are elected by 1400 Fellows and Foreign Members. Their public statement notwithstanding (see # 99 above), evidently none of them have one mote of scientific evidence in support of evolution.With no scientific evidence to support its statement on evolution, the Royal Society has branded itself an anti-science organization of liars with no credibility. What an enormous waste for such a stupid idea.
29. New York Hall of Science. This organization was one of six groups to receive a $2.5 million National Science Foundation grant to study "How Children Learn Evolution".
30. Nature. It claims to be "the world's top multidisciplinary science journal, and the world's top journal publishing basic scientific research". It is militantly pro-evolution without scientific evidence, and it rejects articles critical of evolution, articles with scientific evidence accepted and lauded by one of the world’s leading biological science organizations.
31. The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology admitted by their defaults they possessed no scientific evidence to support evolution or to overturn the experiments of Francesco Redi, 1668, Louis Pasteur, 1864, and John Tyndall, 1877, that proved evolution was based on ignorance of microorganisms and ignorance of growth and development from microscopic eggs.
32. Time Magazine. The October 9, 2006 cover story, How We Became Human proclaims, "chimps are our nearest evolutionary cousins" and "evolution is a random process in which haphazard genetic changes interact with random environmental conditions to produce an organism somehow fitter than its fellows. After 3.5 billion years of such randomness, a creature emerged that could ponder its own origins". C. Owen Lovejoy of Kent State University is quoted extensively.
33. Springer Publishing Company. This publisher plans a journal for evolution lesson plans, but cannot provide one iota of evidence that evolution exists.
34. Iowa State University. This outlaw institution uses state government funds to teach the vitalism religion, evolution, and denied tenure to Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez, who had three times the qualifications for tenure, because his popular book, The Privileged Planet, suggested that atheism and the Copernican Principle lacked scientific evidence.
35. DefCon, the atheist/evolutionist bloggers that flew a banner, "It is a sin to lie," over the AiG museum. Evidently, the banner admonishes DefCon itself because all the evidence in the universe testifies that atheism and evolution are the lies.
36. Science Hearing on Teaching the Controversy, Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka, Kansas, May 5-7, 2005. Seventeen Ph.D.s presented some of the best papers ever heard in support of Intelligent Design. During the day devoted for evolution evidence, not one paper was presented by the numerous rowdy evolutionists in attendance. Scientifically as usual, the evolutionists completely defaulted, thereby consistently demonstrating that there is no scientific evidence to support evolution. None.
37. Hearing on the Teaching of Evolution for the European Parliament of the European Union, Brussels, Belgium, October 11, 2006. The papers presented scientific evidence that there is no scientific evidence to support evolution whereas all the scientific evidence in the universe supports devolution, the exact opposite and excluder of evolution (see the culminating paper at http://www.josephmastropaolo.com/PDF/devolve.pdf). All of the evidence was undisputed in spite of the fact that the evolutionists obviously were in attendance. The evolutionists made their presence known by repeatedly tearing down the posters for the Hearing and the directions to the auditorium. The evolutionists also threw a temper tantrum devoid of evidence or questions during the 40-minute question and discussion session. There were simultaneous translations in English, French, German, and Polish. All of the evolutionists that insulted the presenters were challenged for their scientific evidence and everyone of them had none. For Europe, this demonstrated beyond any doubt that the evolutionists have no scientific evidence to support evolution. None.
38. European Society for Evolutionary Biology. (ESEB) Publishes the Journal of Evolutionary Biology to "support the study of organic evolution and the integration of related scientific fields." When challenged for its scientific evidence in support of evolution, it had none. How remarkable that a society and its journal pretending to advance science are in fact advancing the anti-science, evolution, proven a superstition based on ignorance by means of experiments never overturned 3.4 centuries ago by a European medical doctor.
39. PEER. (Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility) An environmentalist activist group that sought to censor the creationist viewpoint of the Grand Canyon formation.
40. Panda's Thumb website and community. (The challenge was issued to the website contact email address and to selected individuals: Paul Z. Myers, Matt Young, John M. Lynch, Tara C. Smith, Ethan Rop, Mike Dunford, Reed A. Cartwright, Ian Musgrave, and Timothy Sandefur.)
41. American Humanist Association. The AHA has a "base of over 11,000 members and a network of over 100 grassroots organizations," but no scientific evidence to support "life can spring forth . . . from nature."
Outlaw School Districts
1. Huntington Beach Union High School District, Huntington Beach, California. Dr. Van W. Riley, Superintendent (Edison High School, Fountain Valley High School, Huntington Beach High School, Marina High School, Ocean View High School, Westminster High School, Coast High School and Huntington Beach Adult School, and Valley Vista High School). This school district has evolution in its science curricula in violation of the state Education Code for truth, and in violation of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America because evolution must be believed by an extraordinary faith in an inverted-fantasy state supported religion. No one in this school district, not students or teachers or administrators or superintendents, can produce any scientific evidence in support of evolution. January 19, 2006.
THE LIFE SCIENCE LITIGATION PRIZES
For more than four years, evolutionists worldwide have proven by their defaults that they have no scientific evidence in support of evolution (see The Life Science Prize). That included the local Huntington Beach Union High School District (see Outlaw Public School District above), the local Board of Trustees, and the State Department of Education (hereafter collectively called, the Outlaw Public Education Establishment). In spite of having no scientific evidence to the contrary, and in spite of continuously breaking state and federal laws by misrepresenting evolution as science, the Outlaw Public Educational Establishment has refused to teach the absolute fact that the entire universe devolves, the exact opposite and excluder of evolves. The only recourse left is to force the Outlaw Public Educational Establishment to obey the law by means of litigation with the Education Code for the State of California, which forbids teaching as true the exact opposite of reality, and the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, which forbids teaching as a state supported religion the anti-reality anti-science evolution Gaea vitalism religion.
Accordingly, The Life Science Litigation Prize for State Court is an award of $5,000 to the attorney or law firm or plaintiff that successfully accomplishes with finality in State Court what the Life Science Prize has accomplished out of court, that is, that evolution is the exact opposite of reality and therefore violates Education Code 60200 (c) (3) which requires teaching the truth. The Life Science Litigation Prize for Federal Court is an award of $5,000 to the attorney or law firm or plaintiff that successfully accomplishes with finality in Federal Court what the Life Science Prize has accomplished out of court, that is that evolution is the state supported anti-reality anti-science Gaea vitalism religion that violates the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. For both one-time Prizes, Joseph Mastropaolo will be available full time pro bono as a consultant or expert witness or plaintiff as he was available for the Life Science Prize (also see About Joseph Mastropaolo). For free candidate courtroom strategy, additional information, or questions, write to Dr. Joseph Mastropaolo at email@example.com or call (714) 843-6387.

Note. For more than 11 years, as these lists testify to more than 374,000 contacts worldwide individually and by organization, Mr. Priest and Dr. Mastropaolo have diligently sought scientific evidence of evolution. We have offered $10,000 to any evolutionist champion willing to collect it over and over again with the Life Science Prize protocol. All of those efforts worldwide bar none with outspoken individuals and organizations have been in vain. The undisputed conclusion is that there is absolutely no scientific evidence in support of evolution because it is an inverted-fantasy Gaea religion based on vitalism superstitions 2,500 years old, the exact opposite of reality, taught by frauds, forgeries, brass, bluff, and totalitarian censorship in the public schools in violation of state Education Codes and the First Amendment of that fundamental law of the land, the Constitution of the United States of America.
We have done our best by offering unlimited $10,000 awards and $1000 rewards to have a Life Science Prize mini-trial, but the evolutionists consistently default because they have no evidence. Therefore, by summary judgment after hundreds of unanimous default judgments, creation and devolution are declared undisputed biological science, and evolution is, has been, and always will be a pagan, superstitious, inverted-fantasy Gaea vitalism religion. If anyone on or off the above lists disputes those facts, please contact Mr. Karl Priest at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Mastropaolo at email@example.com or (714) 843-6387 for a Life Science Prize min-trial (see rules and alternative rules above).
A remaining next step is litigation to replace the evolution scourge from the public schools with the secular truth of devolution, the exact opposite and excluder of evolution. The Life Science Litigation Prizes are positve steps to rectify the greatest travesty in biological science of the last 3.4 centuries.
All of these experiences confirm that evolution is the inverted fantasy based on the ancient Greek Gaea vitalism religion of 2,500 years ago that was disproven by the experiments, never overturned, of Dr. Francesco Redi in 1668.

||Evolution has been defeated in 4.6 years (from March 11, 2002 to October 11, 2006) by the Life Science Prize mini-trial protocol [1. request reprints of the objective scientific evidence that supports evolution (every scientist is obliged to send reprints), 2. when no reprints are forthcoming, send the Life Science Prize mini-trial challenge to elicit the evidence for $10,000, 3. place the evolutionists on the default judgment list when they default on the Prize challenge, which they are bound to do because evolution is an inverted-fantasy, superstitious, Gaea vitalism religion based on the ignorance current prior to Dr. Francesco Redi’s experiments of 1668.]
More than 374,000 evolutionists, by individual or organization invitation, cannot be coaxed to reveal their scientific evidence even for $10,000 on a continuing basis. That acid test, confirmed in Topeka in May 5-7, 2005 and in Brussels on October 11, 2006, proved beyond any doubt that evolution is devoid of objective scientific evidence. It dominates biology instruction by frauds, forgeries, superstitions, brass, bluff, and totalitarian censorship and persecutions.
