Imagine this scenario: The most exhaustive study of DNA barcoding ever performed examines 5 million gene snapshots of some 100,000 animal species and humans to determine how old their ancestors are.
What they find is conclusive proof that some animal species date back 10 million years, while human genetic material proves it dates back at least 1.5 million years.
How do you suppose that research would be reported in the major media – like the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS and NBC?
What do you think would be the reaction in academia and among evolution champions like Richard Dawkins?
If the theory of evolution were not being taught in every public school in America as fact already, would legislative efforts in Washington to ensure it was be far behind?
Well, that scenario didn’t happen. In fact, the opposite occurred.
Instead, the most exhaustive DNA barcoding research project, conducted by dyed-in-the-wool evolutionary scientists, examined 5 million gene snapshots of some 100,000 animal species and humans to determine how old their ancestors are and found they are no more than 200,000 years old, and the animals and humans appeared on Earth at the same time.
Did you even hear about it?
Was it even covered by the major media?
Have you heard a peep out of Dawkins?
Have you seen any legislative calls to treat the theory of evolution as just that – a theory in absolute crisis?
Of course you haven’t. Because evolution is an article of faith, a religious tenet guarded scrupulously by America’s major cultural institutions, including the media, no matter how it continually fails to produce actual scientific evidence to support its claims.
The findings weren’t published yesterday. They weren’t published last week or even last month. They were published in May. And, since then, I have been biding my time waiting to see what shockwaves it might eventually produce.
The answer, sadly, is none.
Just to summarize the basic details: Mark Stoeckle from the Rockefeller University in New York and David Thaler at the University of Basel in Switzerland, both evolutionary scientists with Ph.D.s, published in the Journal of Human Evolution the results of their meticulous and sweeping genetic study of the DNA barcodes of more than 100,000 animal species and humans showing man and all the animals seem to have sprung to life spontaneously no more than 200,000 years ago.
Now, I know it’s hard to challenge beliefs that are deeply ingrained in people, inculcated practically from birth, reinforced in schools, torturously indoctrinated in colleges and universities, propagated by media and with dissenting views punished mercilessly. I get that.
Think about it. The theory of evolution absolutely depends on three things to sustain and perpetuate itself:
- Millions, if not billions, of years of pre-history to allow for undirected, random mutations so, through the magic of transmogrification, one kind of animal can change into another, a process outside of the realm of science, which actually depends on observation and testing. Without that limitless time component, evolution is a fantasy, a joke, pseudo-science.
- Wishful thinking for people who don’t want any part of accountability to a Creator-God.
- A rigid orthodoxy of state-sponsored compulsion that would make Josef Stalin blush.
So, along comes a study conducted by true believers in evolution that produces actual scientific evidence that shocks them, evidence that actually comes closer to upholding the biblical account of Creation, and it’s like it never happened – some anomaly that can simply be ignored.
By the way, the study also found another Achilles heel in the theory of evolution.
Textbook evolution insists that species with large, far-flung populations will become more genetically diverse over time. The author of the report was asked if that assumption, in light of the data.
“The answer is no,” said Stoeckle.
And, if that weren’t enough, they also concluded that there is very little evidence of any genetic change in their study – the kind that could possibly lead to species modification.
The author make no bones about the fact that they are unhappy about the result of their study, with Thaler saying, “This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could.”
Thank God he had the integrity and character not to fudge the facts.
I wish I could say the same for the fake newsters who pretended this study never happened.
