Darwin Was Just Plain Wrong

Many scientists criticize religion for producing fundamentalists when most scientists are huge fundamentalists adhering to a strict dogma themselves. That dogma is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. To many scientists, Darwin’s book On The Origin of Species is their Bible. It is infallible and unquestionable.But let’s keep in mind On The Origin of Species was published in 1859. This was a time when cells were thought to be little gooey things, so obviously DNA was yet to be discovered. Even Darwin mentions in his book that his theory could be proven wrong and even tells how.

And it has been proven wrong. We are going to show you 3 roadblocks to The Theory of Evolution, especially Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection.

Let’s take a moment to make sure we are familiar with the terms, “evolution” and “natural selection.”

When most people think of evolution, they think of a process by which monkeys and apes eventually developed into humans. Different species of animals come from common ancestors. Evolution can also refer to growth, advancement, progress, etc. Consider how our technology has evolved over the years. A child evolves as he or she matures into adulthood. We might say our species is maturing as well, but a look at the world today may refute that claim. So in that sense, we are evolving.

Natural Selection was the theory that as each generation gives birth to the next generation slight changes occur. There is a variation of traits passed on to offspring. And those whose changes best adapt to their environment live on to reproduce the changes. This was done naturally without any “divine” intervention.

These small changes may not be really noticeable within the first few generations but given the estimated age of the earth at 4.5 billion years that was enough time for Darwin to postulate that everything evolved from a single ancestor, single-celled organisms called Prokaruotes to the Homo Sapiens we are today.

Over many years, after Darwin proposed his theory of Natural Selection, scientists have made many new discoveries that cause many problems for Darwin’s Theory.

  1. The Cambrian Explosion
  2. DNA
  3. Consciousness
The Cambrian Explosion was the first roadblock to Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection. This was even known to Darwin and he mentions it in his book.To understand the Cambrian Explosion you must first know about strata. Strata are layers of rock. As you go deeper and deeper into the layers it is like going back in time. Therefore when fossils are found, the deeper the fossil the older it is.

The Cambrian Explosion refers to a time about 541 million years ago when most of all of the major plant and animal life suddenly appear in the fossil record without any previous record.

Do you see how Darwin has a problem with that? There is the Precambrian period in which you would expect to find fossils which are the earlier stages of those found in the Cambrian explosion. According to Darwin, you would see a record of stages of fossils showing natural selection that led up to the fossils in the Cambrian explosion. But we don’t. They are just there, fully formed.

Darwin believed his theory would be justified that the deeper strata with the earlier stages would eventually be found. However, as of today, many new discoveries have been made of strata showing fully formed fossils of the Precambrian period and absolutely nothing which would record an earlier stage of development.

Now, this does not mean we don’t find a record of species changing throughout the millions of years after the Precambrian period in the fossil record. All those fossils on display in museums had to come from somewhere. What this shows is that we all didn’t come from one single cell.

So where did we come from?

If all the species just suddenly appeared that could be considered a quantum leap and a quantum leap can be considered design. There has to be an intelligence.

If The Cambrian Explosion was a roadblock to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution then DNA was a dead end.
