|The Evolution Theory Evolution 1.1|
Ever wondered why the linear diagram evolved into a tree? Why did the concept of man evolving from chimps evolved into an idea that man and monkeys just have the same roots?
That the magic of evolution! It is mysterious and to some extent, sinister.
This essay would reveal an inconvenient truth of a convenient con.
The Missing Link
Dictionary.com defines the above title as:
Darwin's On the Origin of Species (OOS) did not particularly discuss human evolution. Nor did he mention anything about a missing link. However, in this notorious publication, he already remarked about a tree of life:noun
a hypothetical form of animal assumed to have constituted a connecting link between the anthropoidapes and humans, identified by some authorities as constituting the genus Australopithecus.2.
something lacking for the completion of a series or sequence.Origin:
At each period of growth all the growing twigs have tried to branch out on all sides, and to overtop and kill the surrounding twigs and branches, in the same manner as species and groups of species have at all times overmastered other species in the great battle for life.So if the linear notion was not directly from Darwin, where did it come from?
The idea came from German biologist and professor Ernst Haeckel. Heackel was the one who promoted Darwin's theory in Germany. Below is a copy of a page from his book published in 1879, just a few years after OOS.
|''Tree of Life'' by Haeckel in the ''The Evolution of Man'' (Published 1879)|
Haeckel's diagram is still a tree but if you would look closely, you would see that man came from ape-men, and then ape-men from apes.
The ape-men stage is the missing link.
So the evolution theory itself is a tree: from the tree concept of Darwin which branched out to Heackel's tree and to the linear diagram of Huxley (another supporter of Darwin). At some point in time, Haeckel's tree and the linear of Huxley merged to create the common and popular conception of the theory.
The tree that you would now see in Biology books came out apparently from an offshoot of Darwin's tree. I have attempted to illustrate that below:
|Evolution Theory Evolution 2.1|
Darwin's evolution theory is a tree where other evolution theories have branched out from. And it is not the fault of the masses that they are confused about the evolution concept. Evolution scientists are apparently not good communicators.
So it is not surprising that there are atheists that are still looking for the missing link:
Although chimpanzees remain our closest living primate relatives, there is now no evidence that Homo sapiens somehow evolved from chimpanzee-like individuals, losing chimp characteristics over time.Jennifer ViegasOctober 2009
In fact, Ernst Haeckel's evolution theory had so great an impact that atheists have created the greatest con in science and in human history.
The Crime of the Century
Before I tell you what that is, let me first quote this preface from the world famous TIME magazine:
Yes, it is difficult to not feel schadenfreude for those atheists who masterminded the GREATEST CRIME IN SCIENCE:The Crime of the Century must strike at the most undefined and thus most vulnerable part of the soul: it must touch the messy unconscious, where all kinds of emotions meld into each other. Pity and envy are involved; desire and revulsion; fear and sometimes schadenfreude.
Eoanthropus dawsoni was the scientific name of this alleged missing link, and it would have been an extremely early example of a creature showing both human and apelike qualities. At 375,000 years old, it put England in contention for a cradle of humankind, being found in the Sussex town of Piltdown. The "first Englishman" he was proudly called when the anthropologist Charles Dawson found him in 1911. For decades, Piltdown Man was cited along with Neanderthal man and Heidelberg man as an example of early hominid life in Europe. Then in 1953, the fragments, including a jawbone, were tested: they did not contain enough fluorine to be the age that Dawson claimed; worse, the jawbone was that of a 10-year-old orangutan, its teeth ground down to simulate age, and a crude chemical wash applied to the bone to make it appear ancient. No one knows who perpetrated the hoax: Dawson had died in 1916. Very quickly, however, Piltdown became a synonym for phony
To God be the Glory forever! Praise be the name of the Lord.
