Question Evolution Day and Ape-Human Language

This is a simple lesson that people can get from Question Evolution Day: Demand the science. Actually, this is something other biblical creationists and I have been saying for a mighty long time, but this is a time to emphasize it.

It is also very helpful to learn how to spot bad logic. The stuff these owlhoots spread is saturated with faulty reasoning, but since the secular science industry seems to work closely with Rusty Swingset and his crew up yonder near Deception Pass at the Darwin Ranch, their negative influence is seen. All sorts of intellectual and scientific shenanigans happen at the Ranch, but they sure do know their propaganda tactics!

Chimpanzees are portrayed as more intelligent than they really are, and assertions about having a common language between humans and apelike ancestors way back in the mists of time are just that: mere assertions. These things were followed by that confirmation bias stuff again. The bad reasoning and question-begging nature of the research involved should draw howls of outrage from scientists who have knowledge and integrity. I lack belief that it will happen, since the storytelling supports the Bearded Buddha.

There are a host of scientific problems with evolution. One egregious difficulty is an untestable proposition that people (and primates) evolved from an unknown common ancestor from an unknown time ago. As one evolutionist said, “When you look at the narrative for hominin [bipedal apes, including modern humans] origins, it’s just a big mess—there’s no consensus whatsoever.”

In addition, the evolutionary origin of the unique ability of human speech and language remains totally unresolved. . .

Undeterred, evolutionists expect to find part of the answer by observing “gestures that wild chimps and bonobos use to communicate,” since they allegedly share a common ancestor with us. But interpreting ape gestures is necessarily subjective. . .

To read the entire article and learn a few things (and possibly laugh at the absurdity of those evolutionists), head on over to “Do People and Wild Apes Share a Common Language?

Creepy Videos and Evolution

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Strange title, I know. The word evolution is constantly thrown around and assumed to be true. We are bombarded by assertions of particles-to-paranormal researcher evolution at every turn, and numerous things are simply assigned to it. Evidence? Naw, just say “it evolved” and look intellectual.

In an article a spell back, I discussed some of those paranormal videos popular on YouTube and elsewhere. They can be fun, but boring. Many are of unknown origin, the locations are not disclosed, cameras happen to be pointing at the right place at the right time (which strongly suggests they were staged), clips suddenly end, and all that good stuff. This child lacks belief that many are authentic, and that is one reason many are boring to me.

Something else that is troubling is how people do not use critical thinking skills, seeming to prefer confirmations of their biases. A video of lights in the sky is proof that aliens are visiting Earth, sounds and a wispy figure are definitely the lingering spirit of someone who died there, yada yada yada. I think y’all can figure out the questions that need to be asked, beginning with, “How do you know?”

On the Slapped Ham channel, Kallen (who seems like a nice guy and I would like to spend some time talking with him) has a segment involving pareidolia. That is where people see faces, shapes, and other things that do not actually exist. (I can “see” Charles Darwin’s profile in a tree just outside.) Similarly, musical ear syndrome is where someone is “hearing” a musical tune that does not really exist. In both cases, the mind is trying to make sense of what is seen or hears. I am greatly oversimplifying, but you can look these up your ownselves if you’ve a mind to.

He had a clip about a creepy face in a tree, and people were recording how they switched headlights on and off to change the visibility. You can see it here at the 1 min. 49 sec. mark. It’s fun for a while and includes a discussion of pareidolia, then Kallen tainted it with, “This ability to see faces has evolutionary advantages. It helped our ancestors to survive by allowing them to quickly identify friends and foes.” Sorry, Kallen, but how do you know? Were you there? Got evidence? Not possible, because that is a Just-So Story told by fundamentalist evolutionists and you’re probably simply repeating it.

As you see, even in our entertainment we get evolutionary propaganda. I could make a series on this stuff. Purveyors of evoporn may not even realize that they’re spreading misinformation because they’ve been successfully indoctrinated. The rest of us must remain alert, ask questions, and use critical thinking to avoid being humbugged.
