In this regard,
some view evolution more as religion than as science, because
of its strong reliance upon faith in things unseen.
But in their
zeal to systematize their Darwinian god, factual science itself
became subordinate to the flexible whimsies of evolutionists' new
maker. For example, anything and everything can
be ascribed to evolution. And when faced with the inconvenience
of refuting evidence, evolutionists' elastic god can be remolded
to fit any shape expedience dictates (as we shall see).
Absurd Leap of Faith From Theory to Fact
- Darwin's Theory
won sweeping support within the science community and the media.
There persisted, however, the troublesome matter of proving
their new god. How well would evolution's unknown machinations
fare under scrutiny of the fossil record, and well-understood and
proven laws of nature, such as thermodynamics?
the Laws of Nature Tell a Different Story
layer of the earth's crust is a mile-deep graveyard containing
billions of fossils. Darwin claimed that abundant evidence supporting
his theory, i.e., missing links, common ancestors, would be found
in this stratum.
But in over
150 years since Darwin's theory was published, no evidence of
any kind has ever been found to support it. In fact, evidence contained
in the fossil record directly contradicts Darwin's claims of
Renderings as Facts of Science
- Undaunted by
the contrary physical evidence, paleontologists have exhibited
an inexhaustible capacity over the years for imagination.
In 1912, Arthur
Woodward announced to the world that he had found the missing
link between ape and man. Piltdown Man, as he called it,
consisted of a jaw bone and a piece of skull which he estimated
to be over 500,000 years old.
However, in 1953,
when the new fluoride dating process was applied to the bones,
scientists were shocked to learn that the jaw bone was
less than 50 years old. Only then did they notice that
the bones and teeth had been treated with salts and filed to
make them appear old and primitive.
In other words,
Piltdown Man was a scientific fraud.
Method in Reverse?
past 150 years, paleontologists and archaeologists have unearthed
literally millions of fossil remains. However, despite initial
reports of findings of missing links, scientists later dismissed
these reports as false.
of these reported discoveries were:
Man - Reconstructed from a modern human jaw bone.
Man - Scientifically reconstructed from the tooth of a pig.
Man - Scientifically reconstructed from the jawbone of a modern
ape. Teeth filed and treated with salts to make them appear old.
- Peking Man
- Supposedly 500,000 years old, but the evidence somehow vanished.
Man - Scientifically reconstructed from the arthritic skeleton
of a modern man.
- New Guinea
Man - Later found to date way back to 1970.
Man - Reconstructed from a fossil identical in every way - to
In over 150
years since the introduction of Darwin's book, no missing links
have ever been found, living or dead.
In fact, evolution

clear evidence of the sudden occurrence of species and their
long history virtually unchanged - until extinction.

hint of how evolution is supposed to actually work, the
theory persists as orthodox doctrine in science textbooks

How can this
With the argument
of Darwinism all but shattered by the fossil record, Darwinist
scientists had to come up with an alternate theory - one that
better fit the physical evidence.
Panspermia (The X-Files)
- Still reeling
from the knockout blow dealt by the fossil record, evolutionist scientists
went back to the drawing board. Their substitute creator had
to be revamped to deal with the practical realities of
the fossil record.

up with a solution. Crick introduced the hypothesis known as,

this theory sparked much speculation and even hysteria among
the less-scientific public. Aliens and UFOs began popping everywhere
and soon became the rage of tabloid magazines. (Some even
claim to have been abducted by aliens).
However, in light
of the incredible distances between solar systems and other practical
realities, this theory was discarded.
