Let’s review the Darwinian fairytale about the putative human and chimp common ancestor. We begin with the definition for natural selection from 2 renowned evolutionary scientists, and then compare the theories for how humans acquired our bipedalism to these definitions.

Futuyma: Natural selection is the process by which species adapt to their environment. Natural selection leads to evolutionary change when individuals with certain characteristics have a greater survival or reproductive rate than other individuals in a population and pass on these inheritable genetic characteristics to their offspring. Simply put, natural selection is a consistent difference in survival and reproduction between different genotypes, or even different genes, in what we could call reproductive success.

In this Beliefnet interview with Richard Dawkins,

You said in a recent speech that design was not the only alternative to chance. A lot of people think that evolution is all about random chance.

That’s ludicrous. That’s ridiculous. Mutation is random in the sense that it’s not anticipatory of what’s needed. Natural selection is anything but random. Natural selection is a guided process, guided not by any higher power, but simply by which genes survive and which genes don’t survive. That’s a non-random process.

There is no disagreement that bipedalism marks a major difference, between humans from our putative quadrupedal Darwinian cousins. According to the Darwinian fairytale, the only reason that bipedal transformation happened was that it must have conferred some survival advantage. Let’s review these contrived advantages and ask a few simple questions. Continue reading »

Darwinian Fairytales: Selfish Genes, Errors of Heredity and Other Fables of Evolution. David Stove, Roger Kimball. 2005 (hardcover), Encounter Books, 320 p.

A Ridiculous Slander on Human Beings.”

That is what the philosopher David Stove concludes in his hilarious and razor-sharp inquiry into Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Next, link to the Darwinian Fairy Tales reviewed by David Fontana.

WorldNetDaily.com Book Service concludes: “A hilarious, razor-sharp refutation of the hallowed dogmas of Darwinism.”

In amazon.com we read: “Darwinian Fairytales is a must-read book for people who want to really understand the issues behind the most hotly debated scientific controversy of our time.” Continue reading »

Casey makes this excellent observation at EN&V.

I love it when new “missing links” are discovered, because it’s then–and only then–that Darwinists admit how precious little evidence had previously existed for the evolutionary transition in question.

Authority Jennifer Clack even admits that before finding Tiktaalik, the large morphological gap between fish and true tetrapods was “frustratingly wide”:

    “It has long been clear that limbed vertebrates (tetrapods) evolved from osteolepiform lobefinned fishes3, but until recently the morphological gap between the two groups remained frustratingly wide. The gap was bounded at the top by primitive Devonian tetrapods such as Ichthyostega and Acanthostega from Greenland, and at the bottom by Panderichthys, a tetrapod-like predatory fish from the latest Middle Devonian of Latvia (Fig. 1).”
    (Jennifer A. Clack & Per Erik Ahlberg, “A firm step from water to land,” Nature 440:747-749 (April 6, 2006); emphasis added)

For the religious Darwinists it doesn’t matter what the evidence is, Darwinian evolution happened so all evidence must be distorted to support that fact. Continue reading »
