When your “skepticism” is always in line with conventional wisdom, are you really a skeptic? Or are you just another follower?
Beware of allowing the postulations, conjectures, and finalities of others (purporting to be more knowledgeable than you) to limit your own abilities of discernment, critical thinking, and observing what is right in front of you.
Have you noticed that when “scientists” encounter something that they do not understand, they tend to label it as “junk” or “vestigial”–rather than simply admitting that they don’t know?
There are two main reasons why many evolutionary claims are readily accepted as fact without sufficient supporting evidence. The first is that people are inculcated to believe what they are told by authority/media figures without question; without any critical thought–lest you be accused of being a “conspiracy theorist,” an “idiot,” a “rabble rouser,” “trouble maker, “denialist,” or “troll.” Yes those dreaded, scathing, oft-repeated labels that are used to induce conformity and discourage independent thought. The second reason is that, to the subconscious mind, claims that organisms evolved from unicellular to multicellular organisms and from sea dwelling animals to land dwelling animals are not only possible–they have been observed.
This is where the life cycles of sexually-reproducing multicellular eukaryotic organisms come into play–the best example being the life cycle of amphibians. In frogs, single reproductive cells (gametes) fuse together, develop into multicellular organisms (tadpoles) that can only survive in water, and finally become fully-formed frogs that are able to survive on land. This is an observable and undeniable fact. Using the sexual reproduction template, however, to claim that some prokaryotic (single-celled) organisms went through a sudden change from asexual reproduction to combining with each other to eventually become multicellular eukaryotic, sexually-reproducing organisms takes a huge leap of faith because it has never been observed. And there are no transitional fossils nor are there present observations of prokaryotes fusing with other prokaryotes to produce eukaryotes. And using the life cycle of amphibians (that are still heavily dependent upon a water source for skin respiration) as a template to claim that today’s terrestrial mammals all evolved from aquatic lifeforms also requires a leap of faith that begs for evidence that is not there.
Unfortunately, these facts this matters little to evolutionists whose theoretical foundations are based on wild conjecture and subliminal associations; not on scientific reality.
“To postulate that the development and survival of the fittest is entirely a consequence of chance mutations seems to me a hypothesis based on no evidence and irreconcilable with the facts. These classical evolutionary theories are a gross over-simplification of an immensely complex and intricate mass of facts, and it amazes me that they are swallowed so uncritically and readily, and for such a long time, by so many scientists without murmur of protest.”
–Sir Ernst Chain, Nobel Prize winner
Whereas deceivers of yesterday spoke in tongues; the deceivers of today speak in jargon.
Contrary to popular belief amongst those of us living in the evolutionary bubble, there is no world-wide consensus supporting evolutionary theory as science. In fact, there are only 12 countries that mandate the teaching of evolution in public schools. Those countries are:
- United Kingdom
- United States
Note: All of Asia is missing from this list–as is all of Africa and Central America. Canada is not on the list. Most of Europe, South America, and the Middle East–absent from this list.
