(Talk.Origins quotes in blue)

Pasteur wrote little on the subject of evolution or creation. He was apparently skeptical of the popularity of Darwin's theory, but he accepted evolution.

Talk Origins also quote a quote indicating that, at one stage at least, Pasteur accepted evolution. However was a distortion for Vallery-Radot to assert that Pasteur was favorable to ideas of evolution. John Hudson Tiner said, “Pasteur rejected the theory of evolution for scientific reasons. He was the first European scientist to do so. He also rejected it on religious grounds” (History of Medicine, p. 81). Creation Safaris: World's Greatest Creation Scientists.
