"This point 500 million years ago provided our ability to learn complex skills, analyse situations
and have flexibility in the way in which we think. "
Humm, I am pretty sure that human beings did not exist 500 million years ago, so who are
these scientists referring to...? Obviously some kind of theoretical hominid that they
hypothesize is related to the evolution of human beings (Homo sapiens) which wouldn't
happen for several hundred MILLION years.
I see this as another attempt by the scientific community to try and give credibility to a theory
that was out dated the moment that the DNA double-helix was discovered; to keep trying
to shove down our throats the idea that the theory of evolution as presented by Darwin is a
tenable theory and supported by a corroboration of evidence (what they used to call a
'preponderance of the evidence' in what used to be REAL science) when in fact the theory
is not supported by a preponderance of the evidence. We still haven't found "the missing link"
and according to Darwin himself he said that if his theory of evolution was not PROVEN
within 50 years, that his entire theory should be disregarded. Well folks, I'm tired of hearing
scientists try to make a theory with more holes in it then the movie Prometheus, continue
to try and make it sound scientifically tenable, long, long, long after Darwin himself said that it
should be disregarded.
In addition, it is highly doubtful that Darwin would even have published his theory if he knew
that the origin of species was actually exponentially more complex than he ever imagined,
with the discovery of DNA, the simple yet elegant idea that proteins just happened to come
together under the right conditions to form single cells, was tenable, at a time when it was
thought that single celled organisms were basically just some proteins that happened to
come together-- which was disproved with the discovery of DNA, that even those "simple"
single celled organisms are more complex that the Mercedes Benz that many of the
scientists still pushing Darwinism down our throats drive and a theory which has evolved itself
into something that more resembles religious thought than scientific thought.
Just my two cents.
