Dr. Wells has received criticism for denying the connection between [[HIV]] and [[AIDs]] without any scientific support. Wells, along with many others, signed a petition which claimed "It is widely believed by the general public that a retrovirus called HIV causes the group of diseases called AIDS. Many biochemical scientists now question this hypothesis. We propose that a thorough reappraisal of the existing evidence for and against this hypothesis be conducted by a suitable independent group.

Jonathan Wells

Dr. Jonathan Wells is a biologist who objects to the way evolution is taught in America. His book, Icons of Evolution, criticizes ten major distortions of science which evolution advocates and especially biology textbooks use to support standard evolutionary theory.

Wells, a prominent advocate of intelligent design, is a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture. [1] Dr. Wells has obtained two Ph.D.s. - one in molecular and cell biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and the other in religious studies from Yale University.[2]

In the late 1970s Wells decided through his studies, conversations with God, and prayer to devote his life to destroying Darwinism.[1]
