The statement, "A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism," is a short statement that reads: "We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged."

"There are 1,043 scientists on the 'A Scientific Dissent from Darwinism' list. It passed the 1,000 mark this month," said Sarah Chaffee, a program officer for the Discovery Institute, according to The College Fix.

The statement, released by the Discovery Institute in 2001 by those who question Neo-Darwinism, has been signed by scientists from "the US National Academy of Sciences, Russian, Hungarian and Czech National Academies, as well as from universities such as Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and others."

The statement has specific requirements for signatures. In order to sign the document, one must obtain a "PhD in a scientific field such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, computer science, or one of the other natural sciences; or they must hold an MD and serve as a professor of medicine," in addition to agreeing with the assertions it makes.
