Proverbs 12:17 He who speaks truth tells what is right, but a false witness, deceit.
As I have said, The Theory of Evolution is not science. It is philosophy. I have dubbed it “Kitchen table science”. What I mean by that is every time evolutionists run into yet another problem with their theory they sit down at a kitchen table somewhere and concoct some new angle that allows them to ignore the problematic data. Of course the new angle is always untestable as well. That’s “science made easy”. That’s philosophy.
I wasn’t too far off in my description of the theory being kitchen table science. As it turns out, one of the “major break-throughs” of the theory occurred in a Michigan Laundromat. As it all ends up, it was no break-through at all.
However, the text books and media presentations will never tell you that. As a matter of fact they will never tell you about any of the problems the theory suffers. Nor will they tell you the little secrets that evolutionists try to hide.
So I think that a Laundromat is the perfect place for the Theory of Evolution to try to evolve. It’s perfect because…… well….. quite frankly the folks behind the theory have a lot of dirty laundry.
Evolutionist Niles Eldredge was trying to clean his clothes when he reached into his pocket to remove one of the trilobites he had been collecting in the Midwest. He was perplexed and downtrodden when he had to face the reality that of all the trilobites he had collected and studied he saw no evidence of gradual change as his favorite theory told him to expect.
If there was one form of creation Eldredge was familiar with it was…..
A creative mind.
Put in simple terms Eldredge was aware that stasis, or the lack of change, was the rule. It was always the rule. It had always been the rule.
But it was a rule that was kept secret by evolutionists.
Why? Well it flew in the face of their philosophy and was proof against the gradual change that their beloved philosophy demanded.
So….. let’s keep that little problem safely under the rug, shall we.
Eldredge and his compadre Jay Gould realized that “stasis was data”. He realized that “absence of change” was “a very interesting pattern” (1). Both Gould and Eldredge admitted that most species, “during their geological history, either do not change in any appreciable way or else they fluctuate mildly in morphology, with no apparent direction”.
Eldgedge went on to say, “Stasis……was by far the most important pattern to emerge from all my staring at (trilobite) specimens.” He continued, “Traditionally seen as an artifact of a poor record, as the inability of paleontologists to find what evolutionary biologists going back to Darwin had told them must be there, stasis was, as Stephen Jay Gould put it, ‘paleontology’s trade secret’ – an embarrassing one at that.” (1)
Bet none of your professors ever told you about that stinking little secret kept hidden in the laundry hamper!
Okay, so here was the solution to the problem:
Change is never seen because it does not occur in the main population of a species. Somehow a small group of the species becomes isolated and the change occurs there. It overtakes that entire group. Then that group somehow returns to the main population and the change is completely distributed among the main group. So we don’t get fossils of change because there just aren’t enough organisms to leave any fossils behind.
They called it “Punctuated Equilibrium”. It means that all of nature is in perpetual equilibrium that is occasionally punctuated by brief moments of profound change.
However, the paucity of organisms involved in the change was both the solution as well as the problem that eventually caused punctuated equilibrium to sink into the quagmire and itself become a fossil.
Darwinism needed variation for natural selection to work on. But they had no idea where that variation came from.
Enter genetics and mutation. That became the force believed to cause the variation.
And the evolution boys jumped on that bandwagon and rode it hard through every textbook and town. Well, for a while anyway. Then the wheels started coming off that cart.
It was discovered that almost all mutations are harmful and are eliminated. It would require immense amounts of time, far more than earth has been in existence, to produce enough positive mutations to get anywhere.
And here is the bigger problem for punctuated equilibrium.
With a paucity of organisms required for this theory to work the number of required positive mutations becomes even more scant….. exponentially so.
Well…… back to the Laundromat.
