Evolution Memory Acrostic – FISH
- There is no evidence for how complex structures like a wing or an eye developed in small gradual changes. These structures are disadvantages not advantages unless they are nearly 100% fully formed. We have no fossil evidence showing a ¼ wing, ½ wing, etc.
- All higher categories of living things (fishes, reptiles, primates, etc.) all appear abruptly and have no transitional forms (part fins, part feet, etc.)
If you find a spear, do you conclude it made by chance or by an intelligent being? How about a watch?
Can natural selection and mutations (mistakes in copying genetic code) account for evolution? Can mistakes in copying the DOS computer operating system eventually become Windows 1.0 and eventually Windows 2000?
One mathematician noted that the chance of macro-evolution being true was similar to the chance of a tornado hitting a junk yard and creating a 747.
Second Law of Thermodynamics
This law in universally accepted and states that, when left to themselves, all things tend to go from organized to disorganized, from complex to simple (deterioration, etc.). Macro-evolution requires the opposite, the continually building up from the simplest to the more complex forms.
Can we believe that our great, great, great, … grandfather (if we go far back far enough) was a fish?
History of “missing links” There have been many misconceptions and even fraud:
Neanderthal man – was considered a missing link for some time and now is considered as human as you and I.
Nebraska man – was a tooth claimed to be the missing link between apes and humans and was used as evidence for macro-evolution in the famous Scopes trial. It ended up being a pig’s tooth and shows the strong preconceived ideas of many scientists trying to find evidence.
Piltdown Man – a piece of a jaw and two molar teach and a piece of a scull was claimed to be the missing link for over 40 years (1912 to 1953) as macro-evolution increased in popularity. In 1953 it was exposed as a fraud with a jawbone of a modern ape, teeth filed down, and bones artificially colored to deceive the public .
CONCLUSION: To remember the evidence of the fallacy of Darwinism, just remember FISH – Fossil Evidence, Intelligent Design, Second Law of Thermodynamics and the History of Missing Links
