MUTATIONS - Radioactive waste helps to increase the number of cellular
mutations in life forms. Help me to send one truckload to the backyard
of every evolution-teaching professor in America. Or, let's buy them big
X-ray machines to use like tanning beds. …Okay, too much fun here. ….Back
to serious answers.
Evolutionists have serious problems with their theory. There is still
no mechanism for *how* evolution could have happened, to bolster their
underlying belief system that there just can't be a God to have to answer
to. Testable-repeatable science shows very, very different results than
evolution teaches. Mutations are almost always harmful or (if not fatal)
get reabsorbed into successive generations in any event. Inbreeding causes
serious problems, not magical automatic improvements. They keep thinking
that somewhere on Earth they'll find some bona fide transitional fossils.
But while billions upon billions of fossils have been dug up over the years
there are still zero transitional fossils that stand up to scientific scrutiny
over time. All amphibians remain amphibians (reproducing within preset
variational limits). All fish remain fish. All mammals have always been
mammals, and within mammals (just like "kinds" within amphibians or fish,
etc.), there are dog-kind of animals that keep producing only a variety
of dogs as offspring. Why, you'd think that some wise Designer had encoded
specific, but flexible, instructions into each type of life at the outset
then let them propagate down through time.
A good engineer does not re-invent the wheel with each new model. Do
you think that any of the engineers at GM, Toyota or Ford would even consider
doing this when they're preparing a new automobile design? Of course not.
We know that many reptile and mammal skeletons look almost the same structurally,
even though the rest of each creature is extremely different. Of course! They were
designed, not randomly evolved in some mystical-evolutionary sequence. Our Designer may have
"mixed & matched" parts when He was designing. The human eye is closely
related to the octopus eye. Human milk is closest to that of donkeys. The
human skeleton may be close to that of some primates - but so many of our
other biological parts are not! Evolution is a myth and underneath the
covers it is actually a spiritual deception. What we see in the fossil
record and in life today is actually evidence of a common Designer of it
When you're watching an evolutionary TV show on PBS, BBC, Discovery
or other religious stations, listen for their underlying assumptions. They
*know* that evolution happened. That much is a given. Okay, umm, now how
this week? They're sure of only one thing - and that is that humans do
not have to answer to God.
Evolution sure didn't happen by mutations or else we'd have to wait
in line to buy truckloads of radioactive waste, correct? Instead, evolutionists
vehemently object to my idea of using their barbeque areas for long term
nuclear waste disposal. Come on, I'm just trying to help them realize their
religion's potential. (Evolution is not science; it is rather a philosophy
or religion - that often stands against known science.)
How many times a year do Time, Newsweek, National Geographic or other
religious magazines tell us that some fossil find will "completely re-write"
the evolutionary tree? They still have no mechanism and zero real transitional
fossils. But they have great artist drawings to compensate for their lack
of evidence! The frauds and wishful evidence of the past get scratched
out and the new stuff gets wishfully drawn into place. They are just sure
that it had to have happened somehow because the alternative (answering
to our Creator) is unthinkable to them.
If a person doesn't get enough calcium for 10 or 20 years it affects
their spinal column and posture, correct? (Such a deficiency can also have
serious impacts on the circulation and central nervous systems as well,
by the way.) Until about 100 years ago most people around the world ate
only local foods. Local foods are grown in local soil. Got
that? So then … if the local soil in some places was deficient in
magnesium, iron, aluminum, or any combination of so many other minerals
that we need at least trace amounts of … how would that affect their skeletal,
circulatory and nervous systems…? If everybody there had low iron…?
Low potassium in some areas…? We'd get a few deformed skeletons as
mute testimony to the long-term deficiencies in particular locales, correct?
And that's what we find.
Most hominid fossils show regular humans, over 99% (of the estimated
7,000 total) are pretty normal. But a few old human skeletons are misshaped.
Perhaps there was inbreeding or as mentioned above some nutritional deficiencies
in those areas? Less than 1% of all the hominid fossils found (again, about
9,000 total now) are odd enough that evolutionists jump on them for media
attention and then apply for grant monies. But even with a few odd enough
hominid fossils (maybe 40 or 50 out of the thousands and thousands that have
been found, less than 1% of the total, remember this!) there is definitely no
progression. The fossils just aren't there to support evolution.
And virtually all mutations are harmful. So, be logical and consider creation
theory. (text by P.A.)
