Many years ago I sat in
tenth grade Biology class, arguing with my instructor about evolution. Charts
were produced that seemed to point to the fact of evolution. After all, who
could argue with known facts derived from fossil data? One day, the teacher
showed me that even the Bible was open to the facts of evolution. The fourth
day the "waters brought forth" the living creatures and then in the fifth day
the land creatures arrived. That certainly agreed with the scientific evidence.
Thus evolution and the Bible were compatible. With that the teacher dismissed
me, my Bible, and my views of "biblical creationism."
Since I did not go into
the natural sciences, my exposure to this kind of thinking was minimal until
I had to take a course in life science for my university degree. The instructor
thought God was a crutch of early thinking before we knew how things really
came into being. Now that we know the laws of nature, we no longer need the
crutch. Needless to say, we didn't have much in common.
While the scientific community
may have refined its thinking, it has not changed its basic premise: "from goo
to you by way of the zoo."
Some months ago, I was introduced
to a book that would have helped me 30 years ago. I believe it is a vital book
for those who are now going through the school systems, or desire to witness
to those who believe in evolution. The book's basic message is this: the theory
of evolution is scientifically inaccurate and the scientific community knows
it. But they have a vested interest in keeping the theory alive to save face
for two hundred years of faulty observation, faulty interpretation, and at times
just plain fraudulent reporting. This is an explosive book and needs to be read
by serious Bible-believing Christians.
Its name is In The Minds
of Men by Mr. Ian T. Taylor. This is a significant book of 400 plus pages with
more than 50 pages of appendixes, footnotes, and source material. This is a
thoroughly researched and well documented book. This researcher and writer from
Toronto will arm you to enter the next museum of natural history or for your
next encounter with the public school system. Here is the ammunition necessary
to counter the fallacious arguments presented.
Let me give you an example.
One of the chapters is "The First Missing Link." That, of course, is the first
spark of life from non-life. One of the theories advanced is that it came from
the bottom of the sea. Mr. Ernst Haekel from Germany was a professor of zoology
at Jena University. Based on Darwin's work, he created a family tree, with simple
organisms at the bottom and the complex ones at the top. "He imaginatively made
up names of organisms that he thought should exist and was not beyond cheating
just a little if the facts of nature did not fit his theories" (p. 187). He
even named the first organism of life "monera" although he had no proof of its
existence. A ship later "discovered" his "monera" and thus the first missing
link was now a fact and this discovery was widely reported. However this "organism"
was later proved to be a precipitate formed from seawater, lime and alcohol--the
alcohol being the substance the seawater was preserved in for future study.
Since the scientific community
was governed by men who believed in evolution, they made sure that this error
was not reported and the public continued to believe that the first life form
had been discovered at the bottom of the sea. One scientific journal obscurely
reported it. Mr. Taylor years later found the one and only article that commented
on this hoax. And this is only one of many such hoaxes this book exposes.
If you want to be informed
on the hoax of evolution and its accompanying cover-up, this book is must reading.
I believe it is a reference book that should be on the shelf of every person
in contact with public schools and is being fed lies. The scientific community
knows many of these are concocted, but you need to be armed with the truth they
already know and will not tell you.
