The Georgia Department of Education, with great good sense and equal courage has decided to remove references to evolution from Georgia schools, and is being buried beneath an avalanche of ridicule, much by journalists who can't tell a molecule from a macaroon. Truth is: the theory violates all actual science:
PREBIOTIC SOUP: For 50 years researches have performed experiments passing high voltage sparks through collections of gasses like the atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn and drawing the reaction products into a separate chamber away from the spark. Some amino acids resulted, small structures of 10 to 27 atoms which link to build proteins. Theory says radiation on earth's early atmosphere made vast quantities of amino acids which joined to make polypeptides & proteins in pools on the shoulders of volcanoes at about 175 degrees. So how many proteins have been produced in these experiments? Zero!
HERE'S how proteins are made in the REAL WORLD, Not in evolutionists Imaginations: The designs of all living things are stored in the DNA of each species. DNA resembles a spiral ladder with rungs of bases connecting the rails. There are 4 kinds of bases, A, G, C and T in DNA. The plans for the creature are called genes, from which we get the word genetic. Each cell has a complete set of DNA instructions for the ENTIRE body, all hereditary characteristics, color of eyes, shape of teeth, etc. Every cell possesses more information than a hundred Britannicas stored in a DNA strand six feet long, coiled into every cell's nucleus. So miniaturized is this system that the DNA for all species that ever lived on earth, including bacteria, would easily fit in an aspirin.
A special enzyme (a protein) unzips a section of the DNA, peels back one of the double strands. Messenger RNA [mRNA] conforms to the exposed section to transcribe the DNA instructions. 3 DNA rungs are used to spell out each of the 20 varieties of amino acids which may be used to make the new protein. After absorbing the instructions the mRNA detaches from the DNA which zips back together.
The mRNA exits the nucleus and moves to a ribosome in the cytoplasm for protein synthesis. The required amino acids are brought to the RNA template and link to it, forming a protein sequence Special protein adapters, enzymes, perform this linking process. There are 3 adapters for each of the 20 types of amino acids, 60 all told. The completed new protein is unzipped from the mRNA. Fiat accompli!
This process takes place in seconds, millions of times a day in you. This is a simplified outline of protein formation, one authority lists 19 separate steps and dozens of enzymes required for the process. The critical question is: Source of information? Where did the precise design for 30,000 proteins in your body originate? And for the tens of millions of species which have lived on our planet? The notion this perfection of precision came into being without design or designer, is LUDICROUS "The senseless one has said in his heart, There is no Jehovah." (Psalm 14)
CONSIDER EXPERIMENTS with methane & ammonia exposed to high voltage sparks:
"Some of the oldest and most troublesome questions about human evolution remain unanswered. The proponents of various hypotheses may be wrong on the very points on which they're surest they are right. All views on evolution are built on seeming facts that vary widely in their degree of reliability" Professor/Anthropology S. L. Washburn, University/California.
In the current debate on creation versus evolution, the DEFECT OF THE EVOLUTIONARY THEORY receives little attention. I surmise the reason is that we have almost no ideas. Kempthorne in American Biologist 1983 pg. 111
No real evolutionist, whether gradualist or punctuationist, uses the fossil record as evidence Professor Ridley of Oxford University in The New Scientist 1981 830-1
Darwinism remains the only truly scientific theory of evolution. It was the lack of any kind of obvious scientific alternative which was one of its great attractions in the nineteenth century [page 355] One might have expected that a theory of such cardinal importance, would have been something more than metaphysics, something more than a myth. Microbiologist Michael Denton in Evolution, a Theory in Crisis ADLER & ADLER Publishers, Bethesda MD DENTON PREFERS MYTHOLOGY BECAUSE HE CANT ABIDE THE REALITY of DIVINE DESIGN: CREATION!
Wrote biochemist Richard Dickerson, Member of the National Academy of Sciences in the Journal of Molecular Evolution: Science, fundamentally, is a game. It is a game with one overriding and defining rule: RULE NO. 1: Let us see how far and to what extent we can explain the behavior of the physical and material universe in terms of purely physical and material causes, without invoking the supernatural. The list of coincidences, all of them essential to our existence kept getting longer. The more I read the more became convinced that such could hardly have happened by chance.
Something else grew as well. Even now it is difficult to express this something in words. It was an intense revulsion and at times it was almost physical in nature. I would positively squirm with discomfort As we survey all the evidence the thought insistently arises that some supernatural agency must be involved. Is it possible that suddenly, without intending to it we have stumbled upon scientific proof of the existence of a Supreme Being? Was it God who stepped in and so providentially drafted the cosmos for our benefit? Geo Greenstein in The Symbiotic Universe. Dickerson finally hit it right, even though it made him sick.
PROBLEMS WITH THE THEORY: (Mythology)
Wrote Darwin in Origin of the Species: If our theory be true, it is indisputable that before the lowest Cambrian stratum was deposited long periods elapsed, and that during these periods the world swarmed with living creatures. Here we encounter a formidable objection To the question why we not find rich fossiliferous deposits belonging to these assumed earliest periods prior to the Cambrian system, I can give no answer. 150 years later this unanswerable objection remains and it is prima facie evidence of divine creation.
In brief, each group, order, or family seems to be born suddenly and we hardly ever find the forms which link them to the preceding strain. When we discover them they are already completely differentiated. Not only do we find practically no transitional forms, but in general it is impossible to authentically connect a new group with an ancient one.
The text provides the enlightening chapter WERE HERE BECAUSE WERE HERE: So many factors had to be just right for life to come about, that it seems as though the universe must have been created specifically for this purpose. Life started once organic molecules learned to make copies of themselves so they could pass on instructions. Henry Holt & Co. New York, 1994
Yep, them molecules learned. Nobody taught em. Did it by themselves. Right smart!
RUTTEN should write children's books. This antiscientific claptrap is pure Mother Goose! I work with chemical detergents. Were I to produce a cleaner to efface Georgia's Stone Mountain Monument the outrage would be cataclysmic! Well, Stone Mountain, the Park, this beautiful planet, every butterfly and you and I are testimony to an Almighty Creator. I'm outraged by this mythology and the media, which blindly prattle it as truth. Like Nazis, this pseudoscientific priesthood, a master race of intellectual maniacs, marches us to futility: now we must go to Mars to learn how life began. A trillion dollars for an atheists prayer!
Darwinism has freed our modern generation from faith. Humanity is purposeless. Were concoctions of impersonal forces in a meaningless universe. Just naked apes. morality is out, ME is in, and there's no such thing as sin. So look how happy this godless philosophy has made us! The fool has said in his heart: there is no Jehovah. They have acted ruinously, they have acted detestably. (Psalm 14)
KNOW that JEHOVAH is GOD, IT IS HE THAT MADE US, NOT WE OURSELVES (Psalm 100)
The religion of evolution is a goldmine for authors, illustrators and publishers who produce a river of speculation on the earliest human remains, bone catalogues and kids books with Alley Oop illustrations. Leading propagandists include Time-Warner and National Apographic. Example: The ROAD TO HOMO SAPIENS, a chart from the Life Nature Library book EARLY MAN, which hangs in thousands of classrooms purporting 25 million years of human evolution:
What were the stages of mans long march from apelike ancestors to sapiens? Beginning at right and progressing across four more pages are milestones of primate and human evolution, as scientists know them today, pieced together from the fragmentary fossil evidence. It is a revealing story because it graphically illustrates how much can be learned from how little many of the figures shown here have been built up from a jaw, some teeth perhaps, and thus are products of educated guessing.
Come now the drawings, but the captions contradict the pictures:
The guy who drew the pictures should have talked to the fellow who wrote the book. We've got Neanderthals walking Peachtree Street right now!
Four thousand million years ago
In a quiet sea, by the warm sunglow
A raindrop to a dust mote said
Tho you can't think and I am dead
We've got to plan for what's ahead
You be a fish, swim to and fro
I'll be a bird, just watch me go!
Tho you can't think, and I've no eyes
We'll accidentally organize
Into an ape and then a Man
We'll do it all without a plan
Do you find this hard to conceive
Don't reason on it, just believe
Ignore the facts, be "Scientific"
Believe in things that aren't specific
It's taught in every institution
This Religion they call Evolution
