Meat Made Us Human, New Darwinian Story Says
What would evolution amount to without its ubiquitous just so stories?
Obviously, not very much, as the fossil record does not support the view that animals would over millions of years gradually change into different kinds of animals, with scales turning into feathers through mutations, for instance.
The umpteen other tall stories are also relatively fact-free.
Darwinists have had to say goodbye to many icons of evolution that were once thought to be solid evidence for the theory. Junk DNA and vestigial organs have turned out to be junk science, vestiges of an era that has long since passed.
Radiocarbon (C-14) and soft tissue in fossils assumed to be tens of millions of years old and the rapidly increasing numbers of living fossils are likewise challenging the Darwinian edifice that already has enormous cracks.
But evolutionists haven’t yet thrown in the towel. They keep on re-issuing old arguments about how a trait might have evolved. A recent example has to do with our big brains, a big problem for evolution.
And the Cambrian Explosion shows no signs of being solved.
Now, a paper in the journal Nature suggests we should thank our meat-eating ancestors for our brains that are far too complex to come about through Darwinian mechanisms.
The new study ignores the information dimension. Darwinian mechanisms cannot account for the origin of information. It is obvious that genetic information does not simply happen. It has to come from an intelligent source.
Humans are special. The answer to the question of why this is so is not blowing in the wind.
It can be seen in the work of the eternal Creator we are introduced to in the Book of Genesis.
