Evolution is Wrong

29 May

I thought of titling this ‘The Great (Stupid) Lie’, or, my second favorite – ‘Evolution is Horse Kaka, but I was thinking of the Google searches, and thought it was best to keep it simple…

I’m going to start with a story. My sister works for an electrical company and she’s really good at her job. She’s a hard worker, friendly, insightful, empathetic and very well-liked. She’s also a Creationist. In other words, she believes that God created humanity in His own image, and that He did it at the end of a literal 6 day creation, just as outlined in the deuteron-canonical book of Genesis. I think its fair to say that her belief forms a fairly substantial pillar in her identity.

One day, her co-workers were talking about how obviously true the theory of Evolution is. ‘Like, obviously, Tommy, look at all the evidence we were taught in high school, man. Creationists are really the dumbest people in the world, but I don’t think there’s many of them left.” “Yeah, man, their being selected out for extinction already, man.” “Yeah, totally, I don’t even know any Creationists, if I did I’d tell them how stupid they were for thinking God created the earth and that God created people, and that it all happened in 6 days.”

My sister doesn’t go to church much these days, but she knows what she believes, and she’s not afraid to say it. So she went into the group, who are all people who respect and like her a lot, and says, “Well, I’m a Creationist.”

And there was a deafening silence for a few moments, and then incredulous questions. You? No!? What? Impossible! You’re so normal. Are you crazy? Please! You believe God created us? You believe in God? You think we don’t come from monkeys? What? Are you kidding? Not you! I can barely believe it!

So she explained to them, that no, really, she was a real living example (not from the fossil record) of a Creationist.She told them briefly that she believed humans were created by God at the end of His creative work, and yes, in six literal days.

There was a lot of ridicule. Somewhat polite ridicule, because she’s too popular and good of a worker to snub outright. But ridicule, nevertheless. And then an ongoing campaign to change her mind. To convince her that her ancestors were really furry creatures that say “hoo hoo hoo” and scratch their armpits and that we sometimes lock up in cages and put in zoos.

As surely Divine Intervention would have it, a few weeks later, her department took a trip to the zoo. And the debate continued and intensified as it neared the primate encounter. When they arrived, they pointed to the monkeys and emphatically said, “Look! How expressive their faces are! Look at their thumbs! Look at their social hierarchies. They have families. They look like us. We came from them. There’s no difference but time between us and them.” They spoke with fervor, almost religious conviction. They were, in their minds, looking at the origin of the species. The fathers of their race.

My sister maintained that there were lots of differences, and that it was obvious that we didn’t come from monkeys. She was drowned out in the face of the ‘irrefutable’ evidence in the cages in front of them. She was told emphatically that “time was the only difference between us and them.” “We’re obviously from them!”

Just then, as they were talking and looking at the monkeys, one came up right beside the glass they were standing by and pooped. A moment later, another monkey came to the glass and saw the poop, poked it with a hairy forefinger, and contently began to eat it.

My sister looked at her suddenly silent co-workers and said, “And there’s one of the differences.”

True story. 2012.

…….

There’s a lot of very good science to debunk evolution. Such as my favourite…

No transitional fossils leading up to the monkey or coming from the monkey, or from or to any other species, for that matter. The monkey appears in the fossil record fully formed. It’s still fully formed today. Why? How come even Darwin, who is the human author of this ridiculous theory, write, “Why is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links?  Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely – graduated organic chain; and this is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory.” C. Darwin, Origin of Species, 6th ed. 1872 (London: John Murray, 1902), p 413.

I agree with Darwin. The fact that the fossil record does not show a progression from species to species in the layers is a big problem for his stupid theory. I mean, if stuff is evolving over millions of years where are all the transitional bodies? There should be millions and billions of them. But they don’t exist. Everything is fully (not half or an eighth or a quarter) formed in the layers.

There are huge conglomerations of other problems with evolution. The point of this article is not to list them all… you can go to google and find lots of sites that talk about why evolution is nonsense.

But let’s face it, evolutionists, even the presence of modern day monkeys is a big problem for your theory. Why are they still hanging around? If mutation or aberration in a given species causes those members with advantageous characteristics to continue and those without to be “naturally selected” for extinction, why are they still here? They should have all been bred out in favor of the new genetic flavor of the day…

Yes, I’ve seen the nature documentaries… “and this is the primate, the great ancestor of modern day man. See his use of primitive tools and his attention to social structure, the precursor of online chatting…” You’ve seen the same National Geographic Presents’ that I have, the same David Attendborough narrated cinematographic masterpieces.

And you also have a brain. And you’ve seen monkeys and monkey documentaries and monkey lectures in high school, but you still have a brain, and the ability to question and reason that is so different than that of monkeys.

So let us consider this… monkeys have been on this planet for supposedly 2 million years, or something like that. They’ve had all this time to evolve. They’ve had all this time to progress. To learn. To advance. And they are today living exactly the same as they were back then.

Think about that. They are living exactly and precisely the same. They have built nothing, recorded nothing, produced nothing of cultural or historical significance. They have been alive for thousands and thousands of years and all they ever do is sit around and fight and eat and mate and do other basic animal stuff. Really basic animal stuff. For thousands and thousands of years. No changes. And now they live in zoos, because their human masters have put them there.

Have you ever seen a monkey make a campfire? Can a monkey make a campfire? You’d think it’d be easy. They have thumbs, even. Hand drill, bow drill, flint and steel, matches even… should be a snap. Monkeys have been around a long time. So has fire. Fire is useful. It’s super basic. Supposedly one of the monkey’s descendants figured it out, and has been doing it ever since. So, can monkeys learn to make a campfire? No. They can’t.

They don’t gather wood, they couldn’t organize the wood in the proper way, they couldn’t focus long enough to light it, even though it would be a huge benefit to them.

Why not? Because they are monkeys. Not humans.

Humans are different, with infinitely greater capacity to reason, to create, to subdue, to organize, plan, communicate, execute, imagine, endeavor, hope, dream, aspire.

The Bible says that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and that He made mankind the overseer and the steward of this planet. Humanity has had dominion under God ever since.The fossil record bears out the Genesis account. It doesn’t support Darwin’s theory. Even he knew that.

The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:29 that God made men upright, but that they have searched for many ways to lower themselves.

The theory of evolution is just one more confirmation of that.
