Something to make the Evolutionists think


If evolution was correct, then we should find that embryo development of animals would replay a synopsis of the whole evolutionary process. Organisms should start releativly similar and then form their different features later.

It is true that vertebrate types pass through a stage which they do resemble each other but, how thet develop to this stage is completly different. Each vertebrate fertilised egg undergoes cell divisions and movement characteristics of its class (i.e fish follow one path, amphs another, birds another and so on)

Embryologists have known for many decades now that vertebrate embryos develop along different lines which converge, in appearance midway through the process, then diverge again until they finally develop, in totally different ways, similar organs,limbs, and bones.

Darwin though embryology was the guide to evolutionary genealogy. If this were so, then embryology is telling us vertebrates have multiple origins and did not inherit similar characteristics from a common ancestor.

This is a clear misunderstanding of the importance of DNA inheritance. Just because all buildings in the early years of civilization started out in say, long house's or made of clay, does not mean that modern buildings must be made out of clay before adding steel reinforcement and glass as an analogy.
The DNA instructions for making a new offspring in flux of it's development does not reflect previous speciations.

see now that was a good point Cryss, good on you. I love getting these topics out for people to banter about!
