THE GREAT HOAX OF EVOLUTION
BY NNADIKE JEREMIAH
Evolution is the change in the characteristics of a species over several generations and relies on the process of natural selection. The theory of evolution is based on the idea that all species are related and gradually change over time. Evolution was presented by Charles Darwin
Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist biologist and geologist (born 1850) best known for his contributions to the science of evolution and his proposition that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors. The scientific theory of evolution by natural selection was proposed by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in the mid-19th century and was set out in detail in Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” (1859). Evolution by natural selection was first demonstrated by the observation that more offspring are often produced than can possibly survive. This is followed by three observable facts about living organisms: 1) traits vary among individuals with respect to their morphology, physiology and behaviour (phenotypic variation), 2) different traits confer different rates of survival and reproduction (differential fitness) and 3) traits can be passed from generation to generation (heritability of fitness). Thus, in successive generations members of a population are more likely to be replaced by the progenies of parents with favourable characteristics that have enabled them to survive and reproduce in their respective environments. In the early 20th century, other competing ideas of evolution such as mutationism and orthogenesis were refuted as the modern synthesis reconciled Darwinian evolution with classical genetics, which established adaptive evolution as being caused by natural selection acting on Mendelian genetic variation (Mendel’s laws; law of dominance, law of independent assortment and law of segregation).
Darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) and others, stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.
Now understand evolution is still a “theory” which means it has not yet been proven by science or rather there is minimal scientific evidence that evolution actually occurred to any creature at any time in history. In fact there is no evidence that evolution actually occurred, only evidence suggesting it could have occurred found in fossils of ancient animals and in the biology of modern animals. How unscientific that billions of people believe in something that has no concrete evidence (sounds familiar doesn’t it hmmmm, putting my religious affiliations aside).
-Let me throw a few points out there to prove that evolution is a false and flawed notion–
For further emphasis to disprove evolution I checked two popular evolutionary hoaxes by the names “Nebraska man” and “Piltdown man”
Nebraska man were a pair of teeth found in Nebraska America by a paleontologist in 1922 named Henry Fairfield Osborn from these teeth Osborn described “Hesperopithecus haroldcooki” as the first anthropoid (meaning resembling human) ape from North America (until five years later a colleague of Osborn concluded that the tooth was most likely from an ancient pig-like animal. From this tooth pictures and sketches of an ancient ape that may have been an ancestor to humans were sketched and put in newspapers, from teeth ancient teeth that were already weathered by time which made it difficult to determine where they came from.
Now about Piltdown man was a paleontological and anthropological hoax that proposed species of hominin (member of the human lineage) whose fossil remains were discovered in 1910-1912, which were later proven to be fraudulent, Piltdown man, whose fossils were convincing enough to generate a scholarly controversy lasting more than 40 years, was one of the most successful hoaxes in the history of science.
Fun Fact: Scientists after testing the DNA different races have confirmed that Homo sapiens (translated thinking man) and Homo Neanderthal (Neanderthal man) not only lived in the same time period but also mated cross species (there was a term for it but I forgot it) meaning that some modern humans today are considered descendants of Neanderthals in other words not 100% humans. Paleontologists and Biologists testing the DNA of individuals of African descent or Negroid against the Europeans or Caucasoid and Asians found that Negroid had 100% Homo Sapiens DNA while Caucasoid had varying amounts of Neanderthal DNA (usually below 2%), in other words the original humans where dark skinned and originated from Africa before crossing over to Europe and then, aftermating with Homo Neanderthal (who lived in the mountain regions of modern day) developed mutations such as change in hair, eye and skin colour to simplify Europeans and Asians are not considered by scientists as completely human and have what is considered “alien DNA”.
Welp that’s just about it read over 1000 pages of evolution theory so I will leave you with this Just ask questions and do research don’t be accepting things all willy nilly life is too short for uncertainty make sure you know what you know, and look out for the great hoax Christmas Edition
