Short biography
American-born Arthur I. Brown, M.D. (1875-1947), from Vancouver, played a major role as a critic of evolution in the 1920s and 1930s. He left a lucrative surgical practice in 1925 to devote his time to lecturing on science and the Bible. Brown argued against evolution on scientific and scriptural grounds. Enormously popular in the U. S. with his national fundamentalist audiences, he was seen by his adversaries as well educated, gracious, and a master of the lecture stage. As most of his contemporaries during the early part of the century, he accepted the notion of an ancient earth. The six short examples of Brown's writing focus on a plethora of examples of alleged deficiencies in evolutionist arguments and copious quotes from scientist skeptics of Darwinism. Scripture is used only in general terms but with the repeated affirmation that it is in complete compliance with scientific fact (even thousands of years before the facts were discovered).
