The Tale of Man's Evolution
like evolutionists' other claims on the origin of life forms, their
claim about the origin of man has likewise no scientific basis.
Discoveries show that "the evolution of man" is simply
Darwin put forward his claim that human beings
and monkeys descended from a common ancestor in his book The Descent
of Man published in 1871. From that time onwards, the followers
of Darwin have tried to bolster this claim. But despite all the
research that has been carried out, the claim of "human evolution"
has not been backed up by any concrete scientific discovery, particularly
in the fossil field.
man in the street is for the most part unaware of this fact, and
thinks that the claim of human evolution is supported by a great
deal of firm evidence. The reason for this incorrect opinion is
that the subject is frequently discussed in the media and presented
as a proven fact. But real experts on the subject are aware that
the claim of "human evolution" has no scientific foundation.
David Pilbeam, one of Harvard University's palaeontologists, says
THE DIVERSITY OF APES
Throughout history, more than 6,000
ape species have lived and most of them have been lost to
extinction. The fossils of these extinct ape species constitute
a rich resource for evolutionists. Evolutionists wrote the
scenario of human evolution by arranging some of the skulls
that suited their purpose in an order from the smallest
to the biggest and scattering the skulls of some extinct
human races among them.
If you brought in a smart scientist from another
discipline and showed him the meagre evidence we've got he'd surely
say, 'forget it: there isn't enough to go on.'45
FOSSIL RECORD DISPROVES EVOLUTION
The scenario of "human evolution" has no basis in the
fossil record just as evolutionists' other scenarios about
living species. Contrary to the propaganda spread by the media,
there is no fossil evidence demonstrating that men and apes
come from a common ancestor.
And William Fix, the author of an important book
on the subject of palaeoanthropology, makes this comment:
There are numerous scientists and popularizers
today who have the temerity to tell us that there is 'no doubt'
how man originated. If only they had the evidence.46
Mayr, one of the founders of neo-Darwinism, admits that the
scenario of "man's evolution" has found no evidence in the fossil
This claim of evolution, which "lacks any
evidence," starts the human family tree with a species of monkey
called Australopithecus. According to the claim, Australopithecus
began to walk upright over time, his brain grew, and passed through
a series of stages to come to man's present state (Homo sapiens.)
But the fossil record does not back up this scenario. Despite the
claim of all kinds of intermediate forms, there is an impassable
barrier between the fossil remains respectively of man and monkeys.
Furthermore, it has been revealed that the species which are portrayed
as each others' ancestors are actually contemporary species that
lived in the same period. Ernst Mayr, one of the most important
proponents of the theory of evolution in the 20th century, accepts
this truth: "The chain reaching as far as Homo sapiens is actually
