X.16. Creation vs Evolution, Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny (11)

 Did God Create the Human Race, or Did We Evolve? (Part 11)

Remember, this is only a theory presented as a fact.  It states that every creature passes through stages in its embryonic development similar to those which its “remote ancestors” passed through in evolving upwards.  Their slogan is…”Ontogeny (development of the individual) recapitulates (repeats) Phylogeny (development of the race).”

Many have been deceived by the evolutionist’s subtle lies and false statements.  Here are their lies and the truths that refute such:

(1). The lie – “Human life begins as a protozoan.”  Untrue, as we all know that human life begins with the union of TWO cells that are NOT “protozoa”; but, the specialized reproductive cells of man.

(2). The lie – “The human embryo at one state of development has gills like a fish.  The so-called “gill slits” in the human embryo are NOT gill slits at all, but pharyngeal arches.  They have grooves, but NO perforations, as in gills.  Douglas Dewar, an English natualist, said, “In the embryo of a reptile, bird, mammal, or man, no clefts form between arches which NEVER assume the characteristics of gills.  It is incorrect to call them “gill arches”.  The embryo of a higher animal NEVER passes through a “fish” stage.”   Thanks, Mr. Evolutionist, for lying to the people!

(3). The lie – “The human embryo in one stage of development has a tail like a puppy.”  This so-called “tail” is simply the coccyx, or the end of a person’s spine.  As the embryo grows, the coccyx is covered with tissue and muscle so that it no longer shows, and is now nothing more than the end of the person’s spine.  The coccyx serves as an anchor for useful muscles.  Another lie by the evolutionists.

(4). The lie – “The human embryo bears a close resemblance to the embryos of other animals.”  This is purely superficial, as close examination at any stage of development always reveals “striking differences.”  NO TWO EMBRYOS OF ANY TYPE OF LIFE ARE EVER EXACTLY ALIKE.  All bear characteristics of their own family or genus.  Many have deceived by the “schematized” drawings of overly zealous evolutionists.  Professor Haeckel, an advocate of the recapitulation theory, actually forged some features of his drawings as “proof” of evolution.  When tried by the Jena University Court and convicted, he confessed.  He stated that, “I should feel utterly condemned, were it not that hundreds of the best observers and biologists lie under the same charge (forgery).”  And this is called Science!  At the British Association Meeting of Edinburgh, August 10, 1951, Prof. T.S. Westfall called the recapitulation theory, “Sheer nonsense.”

God says that He, “Created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”  (Genesis 1:27).  God’s answer to the unbeliever is, “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”  (Psalm 14:1).

As for myself, don’t ask me to become a fool to believe in the impossible, because my faith is in the Lord Jesus Christ who made it possible.
