Can Science Prove Or Disprove The Existence of God?

Continuing with Anthropologist, Bruce Latimer’s assumption that the human body is not intelligently designed because we have things like sore feet which to him demonstrates that a designer would not have created a foot which would get sore. Previously, we went through how intelligent designed built machines eventually break down over time and have problems. This does not mean that those machines were not created with a mind!

We also went over how many negative mutations causes a loss in information which leads such things as aging, sickness and death much like human machines eventually run down and are not longer functional and the only way those machines could remain functional over time would be intelligent intervention!

Unlike  Anthropologist, Bruce Latimer’s assumption, operational science has revealed the human foot to be a marvel of engineering! The foot has arches and a series of bones which allows one to either pound the gridiron or balance tip-toed for hours. You would be absolutely amazed at the design features that are highly complex, integrated into tissue that know as to be bone!

The foot has not one but two arches that support the weight of the body and provide important leverage when walking. What keeps the structure and arrangement of the bones together is ligaments and tendons that form these arches. These arches are not rigid; they yield when weight is placed upon the foot and spring back when lifted.

The foot is what one would call the humblest member of man’s anatomy.  Its five toes is intelligently constructed with 26 separate bones of various sizes and shapes which bound together by a system. It has a complex array of muscles along with a supplied network of fibers and blood vessels. The different bones articulate in gliding joints, giving the foot a degree of elasticity and a limited amount of motion!

Just like steel cables enabling a bridge to carry up a certain amount of weight, likewise arches are held in place and supported by a complex network of strong muscles to carry the weight of the body. But the foot is even more complex than your average bridge. Would you say, the golden gate bridge evolved? Of course you wouldn’t! But Anthropologist, Bruce Latimer would assume a more intricate mechanism such as the foot did because he thinks someone could design it without a person getting a sore foot!

The design of the foot has been reproduced billions of times in every human birth with exactly the same shape and form (barring any birth defects) with the exact same number of tendons and nerves.

We move on to one the most highly specialized and highly engineered parts of the human body and that is the brain! The brain has a massive amount of cells which everything is seemingly connected to everything else, these connections follow a plan based on purpose, an order that we are only scratching the surface in understanding!

The brain weighs about 3 pounds comprising 97 percent of the entire nervous system. The brain is connected to the upper end of the spinal cord.   The brain is divided into three main parts, one is the large cerebrum, he second being the smaller cerebrum, and the brain stem leading to the spinal cord. The brain has an incredible array of weaving strands (ten billion) known as neutrons. The neutrons defy description! You can’t find anything else in the universe that is more complex than the brain!

The whole mental process consists of neutrons transmitting specific chemicals between each other across gaps. As a result, each cell can communicate with every cell at incredible speeds. In just one cubic millimeter of the brain, there are on billion connections among the cells. What does that mean? It means there are 400 billion synaptic junctions in a gram of brain tissue! The total number rivals the stars in the universe, yet all those connections follow an orderly plan with purpose!

We see order and levels of organization in the human body. We see congruent patterns between cellular organelles and the body organs rather than a mindless process going through trial and error. Engineers use the same general principles in creating gears whether is just a watch or an automobile.

Paleoanthropologist Debunks His Colleagues

It was 50 years ago, when a Professor from the University of California, Berkeley, named Thomas Kuhn released a challenge to the scientific community that argued against the traditional view of science which was collecting facts that would lead to a greater understanding of nature. Rather, Kuhn believed scientific discovery relied on what questions scientists would ask, their philosophical commitments, and so on.

Kuhn also wrote about how a theory breaks down which involves many unsolved mysteries, or in other words...“anomalies,” where the accuracy of the theory comes into question thus prompting scientists to look for new ways at interpreting the data. But in evolutionary research, it’s not a new way of interpreting the data, once a theory has been falsified many times over with new discoveries, it’s finding ways to rescue the theory to keep it intact!

Another from the University of California, Berkeley exposes fraud that goes on in Paleoanthropology! He’s not a creationist nor an intelligent design proponent, but the things that go on in his field of work that consists of human evolution, have bothered him so much, he writes about it in current biology and it is jaw dropping…

“The unilineal depiction of human evolution popularized by the familiar iconography of an evolutionary ‘march to modern man’ has been proven wrong for more than 60 years. However, the cartoon continues to provide a popular straw man for scientists, writers and editors alike.”

“The authors take an unusual approach to constructing, in 3-D digital space, what they think the dental arcade of the new fossil maxilla should have looked like. They accomplish this feat by filling the fossil’s empty and broken tooth sockets with digital models of modern human teeth. Why modern human teeth were better suited than available contemporary fossil teeth is left unexplained.”  

“Paleoanthropology’s ecosystem of publishing, access, fundraising, career advancement, media promotion and celebrity seems squarely aligned against the field’s ability to self regulate, a condition exacerbated by the limited fossil resources available.”

“There is ample and obvious motivation for authors to generate ‘new’ species names in this environment. Readers should, therefore, beware of attendant species diversity claims. Illegitimate names have become part and parcel of the symbiosis itself. Furthermore, ‘chronospecies’ are merely artificial segments of evolving species lineages, rather than truly separate species.”

Such assertions of biological species diversity via taxonomic hyperbole are questionable representations of the real paleobiology of our ancestors and their few close, now extinct biological relatives. Despite the branch waving, our family tree still resembles a saguaro cactus more than a creosote bush.”

This is something one doesn’t read every day in published science articles! Tim White gives the public an honest view of what been going on in the work of trying to create a story about human evolution from fossils. He accuses his colleagues of being greedy, not caring for the research itself, but are in it for just to self-promotion, to make as much money as they can! White is also frustrated that his field of work cannot self-regulate which in turn would reduce the problems that exist.

Trusting proclamations about human evolution is getting harder even for some evolutionists themselves!

Evolutionary Assumption: Mutation Clock

How do evolutionists date important events? They use what is known as the “Mutation Clock” in humans. A recent study conducted for three years has shown that this clock is half off by their own assumptions!

The study was published in science magazine

“Now it seems that the molecular clock ticks more slowly than anyone had thought, and many dates may need to be adjusted. Over the past 3 years, researchers have used new methods to sequence whole human genomes, allowing them to measure directly, for the first time, the average rate at which new mutations arise in a newborn baby. Most of these studies conclude that the mutation rate in humans today is roughly half the rate that has been used in many evolutionary studies since 2000.

“Together, these papers make a convincing case that the human sequence mutation rate is substantially less than the one previously used,” says Harvard University population geneticist David Reich, co-author of one recent study. “As a result, genetic estimates of dates for ancient events are going to be older than previously reported.”

This could throw off many events because “timing” is so important in the evolutionary story. Now paleoanthropologist Chris Stringer is calling these events, “very murky” while John Hawks sounded the alarm, “We can’t figure out how things happened if we don’t know when they happened.” 

Other problems include:

1) The first appearance of a fossil may not represent the first appearance of the species!

2)  “there are no fossils of our closest living relatives: chimps and gorillas”

3) Genes may have diverge long before species do.

4) Mutation rates can differ between apes due to other factors, like years between generations.

While evolutionists admit that mutations are a key component for explaining human evolution for better or worse “because most new mutations are deleterious.”  The only thing empirical in the study is mutations rates of humans in a certain part of the world, and fossil bones with no dates on them.

In desperation they cling to mutations as sources of novelty that can transform one species into the next with amazing specialized complexity when they know full well that most of them are not beneficial and admitting that 36 mutations per generation is deadly, while  ignoring the millions of neutral or nearly neutral mutations that cause code decay over time which doesn’t help evolution’s story.  A good study on this is, Genetic Entropy and the Mystery of the Genome by John Sanford which is a great read! He explains genetic entropy which is an observational fact, very well!

With most mutations non-beneficial and with 36 deadly mutations per generation, the human race could not have survived tens of thousands of years at that rate of change! Here is an analogy, if you type mistakes (typos) in a research paper for example, over the course of time especially a long period of time, that information begins to break down and becomes unreadable and useless!

Humans haven’t been around tens of thousands of years!  That’s why civilization, agriculture and the technology appeared so abruptly, just like history shows, less than 10,000 years ago which confirms creationism!

Evolutionary Anthropology Literature

When it comes to evolutionary anthropology nothing ever stands the test of time, one discovery after another ends up with conclusions that you were taught wrong in school, and revisions are required but these revisions are not necessarily revealing the light of understanding on the subject, rather it invokes more confusion within the evolutionary story.

Lee Berger  continues to create a sensational story about the Australopithecus sediba fossils. Does it really reveal evolution? Soft tissue was discovered from these fossils, which was a first and certainly not the last. They date the soft tissues a whopping two million years old!

It doesn’t stop there, hair was removed, as well as proteins and DNA being a possibly of being preserved, calling into question about our species. Even though past hype about how close we are to understanding human evolution had been falsified, this discovery keeps with up religiously with tradition of claiming we are on the verge of discovering exactly how the ancients evolved.

It gets better, in Israel a fossil known as, “Man The Fat Hunter” was published. The story tells us about overweight humans have starved to death when fat elephants became instinct.  How did does one come up with such a conclusion about the unobserved past? It’s elementary my dear Watson!  “We employ a bio-energetic model to present a hypothesis that the disappearance of the elephants…”  –PLoS 

There still remains a deep mystery that alludes evolutionary scientists which is a mechanism for the term “emergence.” Also there seems to be confusion about the evolutionary timeline, a new paper in Nature says 43,000 years for  modern humans but evolutionary dating for modern humans is 60,000 in South Africa according to Paul Mellars in the same paper.

What does that mean? Well Watson, let me put it this way. Ancient humans in Africa (Homo erectus) who were able to hunt elephants, cook, and make tools with the possibility of being able to sail were unable for some strange reason to find Europe for 17,000 years. Wait a minute! Sue O’Conner told us that humans sailed to Australia 50,000 years ago!

Also Avi Gopher told us slimmer ancients (humans) were cognitively-capable ancestors and were already in the Levant 400,000 years ago while telling us something factual about Neanderthals inter-breeding with modern humans.  Hollywood couldn’t have come up with this kind of story!  Such confusion! More includes fishing 35,000 years before agriculture. Isn’t planting food easier than trying to catch a fish?

When you take away the conclusions of evolutionary literature, it all makes sense, humans have always been what they are which includes variants and they haven’t been around that long.

Two million years is an illogical assumption that things like soft tissue should remain intact for that length of time. It also makes stories more sensational than Hollywood could ever make but it useless to what really happened in the past. The best eyewitness account comes from the Bible where it makes sense!
