Radiometric dating of fossils
Even the supposed evolution of such a simple thing as the elongated neck of the giraffe, cannot be explained by the small successive steps of natural selection. I hope that this page will encourage you to start taking a closer look about this because how you and I understand our origins will have an impact on how we see our world and ourselves.We will either see ourselves and the people around us as products of chance, only here on earth due to a long series of lucky ‘mistakes’, or we will see ourselves, and people around us as created by a Designer.It provides a basis to understand ourselves, the world around us, and our creator.And if He has created us, perhaps He has also revealed a message to us. So on this site are other posts, pages and videos that go much more in-depth on this issue than this little article can.I had supposed that many such transitions existed, showing the sequence of our evolution down through the ages.I was quite surprised, as I took a closer look, to discover that this was simply not the case.Here are some pertinent pages: University debate with an evolution professor Human Evolution?– video of a presentation I did in a university anthropology class Consider Design?
After all, this is the general trend that the evolutionary ‘trees’ try to portray – simpler life (like single-celled organisms) gradually evolving to more complex life (like birds and mammals).
How is the hypothetical half-reptile and half-bird going to breathe while his lung structure is being rearranged?
In other words, is it possible for a lung to work at all if it is part-way between the bi-directional structure of reptiles and the uni-directional structure of birds?
And this is a Designer who has showed some amazing craftsmanship – including the design of you and I.
Call him God, or perhaps something else, this awareness will be an important first step in determining our sense of meaning, purpose and self-worth as we live out our lives.
