This article should give you a glimmer of hope that what the Bible says about creation is TRUE!
So, let me give you a lesson in TRUE Science versus that of FUNNY Science.
In TRUE Science, a scientific LAW always trumps a scientific THEORY every time. Evolution is merely a scientific THEORY, but Genetics is a scientific LAW.
In FUNNY science, a new species (human) can supposedly evolve from primates (hominid) through a series of unexplained, beneficial mutations over millions of years, without even being affected by science’s own LAWS of Genetics.
But according to the laws of Genetics, any species must be a result of a male and female producing an offspring of LIKE kind. Which makes it quite unlikely that any two apes could ever produce a human.
The simple fact is, absolutely all hominids have 48 chromosomes and all humans have 46 chromosomes. That’s a given.
Now. If by chance some hominid happened to show up mysteriously sporting 46 chromosomes, through a process of beneficial mutation, and we must remember how complex that process would have to be in order to be able to shed unneeded genomes and take on new needed genomes, in order to match the complex structure of chromosomes that define humans. Would we have that first Human?
No. That mutated ape with the set of human chromosomes would first have to have sex with another ape of the opposite sex. Unless this other ape also went through this miraculous reconstruction of genomes, he/she would have the normal 48 chromosomes. Since each birth parent passes along half their chromosomes to the young, this new offspring would receive 23 chromosomes from the mutated ape and 24 chromosomes from the normal ape, giving it not 46 chromosomes like the human, but 47 chromosomes, which is NOT human.
In addition to this problem, the new offspring would be totally sterile. Want proof? Look at the plight of the mule. The mule must be bred into existence by crossing a donkey with a horse. The donkey has 62 chromosomes and the horse has 64 chromosomes, so the mule has 63 chromosomes and is always born sterile. This occurs because any creature with an uneven number of chromosomes cannot pass a complete set of chromosomes on to its young.
Even if there were two apes bearing the human genome pattern of 46 chromosomes, and even if they did produce the first human, that human would have no other human with which to mate to begin the human race. It would end before it even began.
So there you have it. FUNNY Science is not the answer. CREATION from a Divine Creator is the only other reasonable alternative. . . unless you’re now thinking, hmmm . . It must have been space travelers.
