“A long time ago …” is the traditional beginning of a fairy story.
When a long, long time ago a princess kisses a frog that promptly turns into a man, we call it evolution.
Some years ago the scientific mafia announced that the “Missing Link”, the earliest direct ancestor of humanity, had been discovered in Ethiopia.
Heidelberg man was also applauded as the “Missing Link”. Only later was it conceded that perhaps the evidence had been somewhat flimsy to have made such assumptions.
Piltdown man, too, is these days – after appearing in the textbooks as bona fide proof of evolution for over sixty years – acknowledged as a hoax.
In 1929 Nebraska Man was presented as the most indisputable evidence of evolution yet. Three years later it turned out that the sole evidence on which this premise had been based was a single tooth – that of an extinct pig.
From small molars great fossils of falsehood grow.
Before 1987 the evidence for Ramapithecus consisted of a mere handful of teeth and jaw fragments. It is now known that these fragments were pieced together (incorrectly as it happens) by Louis Leaky in a form that resembled a human jaw. Ramapithecus was just another ape.
Forty years later, Java man was discovered by Eugene Dubois who later acknowledged that Java man was, in a fact, a large gibbon. Dubois admitted that he had withheld parts of four other thigh bones of apes found in the same area because they supported that conclusion.
The Lucy Link was initially trumpeted in Time magazine in 1979 as “conclusive” evidence that Australopithecines walked upright. When, some twelve years later, Lucy’s entire anatomy was studied and not just her knee joints, it was grudgingly admitted that she swung from trees.
Ernst Haeckel, who popularized the incorrect but widespread belief that as a human embryo develops it repeats an evolutionary sequence, admitted to falsifying evidence to support his theory.
For decades, too, evolutionists have maintained that the Crossopterygian or its close relative, the Coelacanth, which became extinct 90 million years ago, had “limb like” characteristics which clearly indicated that it was in the process of evolving from fish to amphibian.
Just before I left Africa, a live Coelacanth was caught off the coast of Madagascar. The Coelacanth proved that all theories of evolution – and there are some thirty-five of them – are just theories. All species on earth are completely developed. There are no examples of half-developed feathers, eyes, skins, arteries or intestines.
If a leg of a reptile were to evolve into the wing of a bird, it would become a bad leg long before it became a good wing.
Despite the fact that the very idea of evolution is a hypothetical assumption (Darwin used the phrase “We may well suppose” no fewer than 800 times in his writings), evolution has been unashamedly passed off as science. According to Webster’s Dictionary, “Science is knowledge derived from observation, facts and principles.”
The only thing arguably more unbelievable than the assertion that we are direct descendants of a three foot ape that lived 4.5 million years ago is our response to it.
Faced with evolutionary theories, most people’s critical faculties instantly atrophy. Possibly it has something to do with the gigantic time spans involved: incomprehensible vastness tends to make the incomprehensible vastly more plausible.
If a scientist had walked into a university biology department and proposed a theory for the origin of mankind in which they claimed, as Darwin did, that the first living creatures evolved in “warm little ponds” (the primeval soup theory sounds slightly more sophisticated but is equipollently nonsensical), and that these single-celled organisms could, in a short time, evolve into a man who could make a particle accelerator out of old washing machine parts, the chorus of jeers would be deafening.
Using the same theory but hypothesizing that the process took “billions” of years, renders the idea less laughable.
There are one hundred trillion cells in the human body. The genetic information contained in each cell of the human body is equivalent to a library of four thousand volumes. Encoded in the 46 DNA segments in each cell is unique information that determines what you look like, much of your personality and how every cell in your body is to function throughout your life.
If the entire DNA in your body were uncoiled and placed end to end it would stretch from here to the moon over 500 thousand times. Were it possible to place the coded information contained in your DNA in typewritten form it would fill the Grand Canyon.
Each human brain contains over a hundred thousand billion electrical connections – more than all the electrical connections in all the appliances in the world.
We are indeed, as the Psalmist said, “Fearfully and wonderfully made.”
The notion that Homo Sapiens could have spontaneously assembled in a warm, little pond is against imaginable odds. It is also contrary to the “Law of Biogenesis” which proves that life only comes from life. The theory that all life began as primitive cells that mutated into more complex organisms is nonsense.
Mutations are mechanisms by which new genetic material becomes available. However, mutations are never beneficial to an organism. All observations have shown that mutations are usually harmful, if not lethal. Cancer cells, for example, are mutations.
The ultimate absurdity of the theory of evolution is that, if life is ultimately the result of random chance, then so is thought. The evolutionist’s thoughts, therefore, in the final analysis are the consequences of a long series of accidents. As such they have no validity.
By destroying the validity of ideas, evolution, thus undermines even the idea of evolution!
Still, instead of ridiculing their loony hypothesis and recognizing an aggressively marketed sacred cow when we see it, we genuflect before the atheist high priests of evolution. It is their ape-given right to indulge in monstrous guesswork. Guesswork which would not be tolerated in any other branch of science.
It seems that when people no longer believe in a Creator God, they don’t believe in nothing. They believe in anything.
