Darwinian Evolution is based on the idea that one species changes into another by a series of small steps. After 150 years of research, the fossil record shows the opposite. It only shows distinct species. There are, for example, major differences between humans and apes. In our search for the missing link, the 'were-ape', all the bones and fossils have eventually been shown to be clearly ape or human. There are no intermediaries.
Darwinian evolution requires vast time scales (because of its gradual, blind-chance mechanism). Fossils are understood to have been gradually laid down over tens of millions of years. But the sedimentation process by which rocks are said to be laid down cannot be observed today. And how could a fossil be laid down except in a sudden event? If it was a gradual event, it would get eaten or eroded away. Moreover, dating methods have a lot of issues. The earth may be a lot younger than we think.
And then the origin of life by chance from the primordial soup is so unlikely as to be
impossible. Not only do you need complex proteins, but they have to be
wrapped in a protective coating to survive as well as needing to be
Evolution has become a cornerstone of the way we
think. It is one of our 2 Creation Myths (along with the Big Bang). Sooner or later it will be shown
up for the half-baked theory that it is. We do not have a replacement
I've got these ideas from a book by Richard Milton (who according to Prof Richard Dawkins "needs psychiatric help"), 'Shattering the Myths of Darwinism'.
And here's a link to Milton on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wr-lXLGCxQ
What I like about him is his use of reason and evidence. So much 'alternative' stuff around humanity being seeded from space etc (which of course is possible), or conspiracy theories, lacks this sort of integrity. So it's refreshing.
