“”The Swedish cytogeneticist, Antonio Lima-De-Faria, who has been knighted by the king of Sweden for his scientific achievements, noted that "there has never been a theory of evolution".
What can be said about this man? Most certainly, that he is either not Swedish or getting on in years, as since 1975 the Order of the Polar Star is awarded only to non-Swedes and members of the Swedish royal family.
And the quote "...there has never been a theory of evolution..." is too short a quote to have any meaning. Without the context, it's completely unclear what Lima-De-Faria was saying. For instance, he also stated "Evolution starts when the universe is born", too. What does he mean to say, indeed?
Lima-de-Faria is a non-Darwinian, he does not reject evolution only natural selection. He says he accepts that selection exists in nature but it is not evolutionary. In his book Evolution without Selection (1988) he proposed that evolution is "ordered" by physico-chemical processes (see orthogenesis).
