Evolutionary Enigmas, Top 10 Highlights in 2011

Since the publication of The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin in 1859, not only is the theory continually challenged by the evidence, confusion rages over the actual theory. The confusion extends into the classroom; the teaching evolution has been a verified failure.

These are my top 10 highlights in 2011 presented on Darwin, Then and Now during the year with links to the original article. Continue Reading

Paleoanthropology, a Legacy of Contention

Paleoanthropology, the study of human origins, is unquestionably one of today’s most contentious topics with the evolution industry. Charles Darwin in The Descent of Man only tentatively suggested that humans may have originated from an ancestor on the continent of Africa.

“On the Birthplace and Antiquity of Man… it is somewhat more probable that our early progenitors lived on the African continent than elsewhere. But it is useless to speculate on this subject.” Charles Darwin, 1871

On the one hand, speculating on the subject of human origins, was “useless” yet in The Origin of Species, Darwin countered this argument by noting that “We should always look for forms intermediate between each species and a common but unknown progenitor.” Over the past 150 years, then, in the midst of this confusion, evolutionists have continued to look for the intermediate species leading to humans.

Anomalocaris, a Freak of Evolution

“If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ exists which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications,” Charles Darwin wrote in The Origin of Species, “my theory would absolutely break down”.

This week a team of scientists from Australia and Spain lead by John R. Paterson, a paleontologist at the University of New England in Australia, extended even further Darwin’s dilemma. Continue Reading

Christmas with Charles Darwin

Christmas for Charles Darwin was simply a seasonal holiday, like other civil occasions in the early nineteenth century. By the time Charles was born, Unitarianism in the Darwin family was well established as a long-time generational tradition.

The birth of Charles Darwin in 1809 preceded the publication of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens in 1843 that re-popularized the celebration of Christmas, once again In England.

Christmas for a Unitarian in England during the early nineteenth century was as important as the Church of England recognizing Ramadan. Christmas had no significance−the birth of Jesus was not of a virgin. Continue Reading
