Latest Blow to Evolution

We are still moving, but I couldn't resist bringing this to your attention:

FoxNews reports a new finding by paleontologist Meave Leakey doing research in Ethiopia. Evolutionary theory teaches that Homo habilis evolved into Homo erectus, which then became Homo sapiens (you). But Leakey just discovered in parts of Kenya that Homo habilis and Homo erectus lived side by side!

Fred Spoor, a professor of evolutionary anatomy at the University College of London says that overall what it paints for human evolution is a "chaotic kind of looking evolutionary tree rather than this heroic march that you see with the cartoons of an early ancestor evolving into some intermediate and eventually unto us."

Bill Kimbel, science director of the Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University who praised the latest findings, says that the old evolutionary cartoon, while popular with the general public, keeps getting proven wrong and too simple.

"The more we know, the more complex the story gets," he said.

What is amazing is that they close the article by saying, "All the changes to human evolutionary thought should not be considered a weakness in the theory of evolution, Kimbel said. Rather, those are the predictable results of getting more evidence, asking smarter questions and forming better theories, he said."

Why in the face of massive evidence for Creation do they keep trying to deny the truth and hold to the lie of evolution? May God open their hearts and minds to receive the Truth.

The following Bible verse seems very relevant:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. - 2 Timothy 4:3-4

From this we know that these things are meant to be happening. Sad but true.
