Let’s re-think the possibilities of where mankind comes from. Let’s explore the biblical theories, the evolution theories, the alien theories, history, science, and the future. Is it just me or are there too damn many answers to the same question? There is actually one true question which is what is man’s origin. Given there is only one simple question there should be one simple answer. But there’s a big fat problem, mankind seems to have a problem actually knowing the answer and assumes quite a bit, he assumes so much that these assumptions and theories have become a major part of human history. I think it’s all bullshit to tell you the truth and everyday we live someone else’s lie. Personally I think it is all part of the grand scheme, a type of conspiracy if you will, led by mankind to inform mankind simply because mankind doesn’t want to look stupid in front of himself for not having an accurate answer to share. I have felt like this most of my life. Because I have felt this way I scour history to read what people have wanted to share in regards to their “opinions” of the origin of mankind. Personally, I am at the point of needing to raise the bullshit flag to the top of the mast. Nobody has a clue. The people who think they have a clue are afraid to explore it because they don’t want to get the stink eye from their colleagues in the science community, their colleagues in the religious community, or from people in the general mainstream just because they chose to explore outside the box of the box which contains the box.
Let’s begin with a simplified look at the Christian view on the origin of man. When did man appear on the earth and how? The Bible is definite as to how God created man and woman. However, the Bible is not definite as to the exact time in terms of Earth years that Man was created by God. Then, all of a sudden, the sudden appearance of man and woman at about 6,000 + years ago during the latter part of the Anathermal Age. Christianity also allows an indefinite time prior to 6,000 years for some mysterious reasons. Why? It is dangerous to set definite dates or to say with certainty when Man was created or when the Flood took place. With respect to the return of Jesus Christ we read, “But of that day and hour no one knows, no, not even the angels of Heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of man be. Therefore you also be ready, for the son of man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him” (Mathew 24:36 & 44). Christians are to live as though Christ could come today. As Dr. Robert Schuller of the Hour of Power Broadcast often says, “The past is history; the future is a mystery; the present is a gift.” It is a gift from God to cherish. The Bible says “Now (the present) is the time of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2). Tomorrow may be too late.
The Bible implies that the foundation of the world of Mankind was established at the creation of Adam and Eve. We read, “The works (of creation) were finished from the foundation of the world (the world of Man). For He has spoken in a certain place of the Seventh Day in this way: And God rested on the seventh Day from all His works (of Creation)” (Hebrews 4: 3b-4). In other words Adam & Eve were created, formed and made during the 6th Day, whereas all their children and their descendants were born during the 7th Day. A new age began at this point in time. God gave all Mankind a choice at the commencement of the Seventh Day to follow Him and to enter into His rest. The alternative was to harden their hearts and to turn away from God into a life of unbelief. Every person today has the same freedom to either accept Him or to reject Him. Jesus is saying to all Mankind, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Mathew 11:28-30). The Seventh Day is an interval of time that began the moment Eve was created. It has continued to the present and will continue until the termination of the History of Man takes place at which time the Earth will be destroyed by fire, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. The heavens will pass away with great noise, and the elements will melt with great heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.” (2 Pete 3:10). After this event a new day will dawn, which could be called the 8th Day for we read, “But in keeping with His promise we are looking for a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13) NIV. So, apparently the Christians can interpret all of this better than I can because they have been doing it for many, many year. I still, don’t have a clue. I do understand, however, that Christians who are relying on the Bible for information on the creation of man are willing to accept no actual answer.
Now we will discuss the concepts of the evolutional theory of mankind. The currently-accepted theory of the evolution of man rests on three major principles. These principles hinge on the innate ability which all creatures have to pass on their genetic information to their offspring through the reproductive process. An alternative explanation for homology is a common designer. According to this reasoning, the similarities in anatomical features between species point to a blueprint used by a Creator/Designer. The first tenet is microevolution, the occurrence and build-up of mutations in the genetic sequence of an organism. Mutations are predominantly random and can occur naturally through errors in the reproductive process or through environmental impacts such as chemicals or radiation. The second tenet of evolution is natural selection. Natural selection is a natural mechanism by which the fittest members of a species survive to pass on their genetic information, while the weakest are eliminated (die off) because they are unable to compete in the wild. Natural selection is often termed “survival of the fittest” or “elimination of the weakest.” The third tenet is speciation, which occurs when members of a species mutate to the point where they are no longer able to breed with other members of the same species. The new population becomes a reproductively isolated community that is unable to breed with its former community. Through speciation, the genes of the new population become isolated from the previous group.The theory of evolution of man is supported by a set of independent observations within the fields of anthropology, paleontology, and molecular biology.
Collectively, they depict life branching out from a common ancestor through gradual genetic changes over millions of years, commonly known as the “tree of life.” Although accepted in mainstream science as altogether factual and experimentally proven, a closer examination of the evidences reveal some inaccuracies and reasonable alternative explanations. This causes a growing number of scientists to dissent from the Darwinian theory of evolution for its inability to satisfactorily explain the origin of man. One of the major evidences for the evolution of man is homology, that is, the similarity of either anatomical or genetic features between species. For instance, the resemblance in the skeleton structure of apes and humans has been correlated to the homologous genetic sequences within each species as strong evidence for common ancestry. This argument contains the major assumption that similarity equals relatedness. In other words, the more alike two species appear, the more closely they are related to one another. This is known to be a poor assumption. Two species can have homologous anatomy even though they are not related in any way. This is called “convergence” in evolutionary terms. It is now known that homologous features can be generated from entirely different gene segments within different unrelated species. The reality of convergence implies that anatomical features arise because of the need for specific functionality, which is a serious blow to the concept of homology and ancestry.
Additionally, the evolution of man from ape-like ancestors is often argued on the grounds of comparative anatomy within the fossil record. Yet, the fossil record indicates more stability in the forms of species than slow or even drastic changes, which would indicate intermediate stages between modern species. The “missing links” are missing. And unfortunately, the field of paleoanthropology has been riddled with fraudulent claims of finding the missing link between humans and primates, to the extent that fragments of human skeletons have been combined with other species such as pigs and apes and passed off as legitimate. Although genetic variability is seen across all peoples, the process of natural selection leading to speciation is disputed. Research challenging the accepted paradigm continues to surface raising significant questions about the certainty of evolution as the origin of man.
Both of the well-known mainstream “theories” are always under heavy scrutiny for basically the exact same reasons, lack or missing actual factual proof. The theory concerning the evolution of man is under increased scrutiny due to the persistence of gaps in the fossil record, the inability to demonstrate “life-or-death” determining advantageous genetic mutations, and the lack of experiments or observations to truly confirm the evidence for speciation. Overall, the evolution of man pervades as the accepted paradigm on the origin of man within the scientific community. This is not because it has been proven scientifically, but because alternative viewpoints bring with them metaphysical implications which go against the modern naturalistic paradigm. Nevertheless, a closer examination of the evidence reveals evolution to be increasingly less scientific and more reliant upon beliefs, not proof which tends to mirror the common biblical beliefs.
I have actually been working on this post for some time, it was started and finished in my journal a while back and I was getting it polished to put on my other blog and then the blog was killed off. So, I let this subject rest for a while because it makes people uneasy when a nobody questions what are believed as great minds of great thinkers. I really don’t think I’m the only one who has these questions. If I were to be the only one then there would be allot less people employed who research, theorize, write, publish, organize, and speak about this subject and ones that go even deeper. this is actually a very condensed version of my original idea which entailed 27 parts. If I were to type out all of my notes, thoughts, research, and so forth, it would be well over 5,000 words in count. Whereas y’all only have to suffer will just over 2,000 word count here today.
Before I forget to mention it let me just say that most of what I had to say here was my own independent thoughts and opinions as well as information I borrowed or collected from a variety of sources ranging from actual paper books in the library to articles found openly and publicly on the internet or in the form or digital media. The only thing I will claim is my idea that there has to be more possibilities that what mankind tends to lend to mankind. I’m not saying anybody is dead wrong, but I’m not saying anybody is dead on right either. Every group is very open about their theories and the holes in their own theories as well. So, what’s your idea or theory or fact?
