We have another creationist gem from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. His new post is titled Did Humans Domesticate Ourselves? Good question, huh? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The story (or fairy tale) of how evolution occurred is always changing. It seems every news item carries a different story from the previous one! For example, evolution is supposed to be “survival of the fittest,” with the toughest and strongest surviving and the weak dying out — unless it’s not. Let me explain.
That paragraph needs a whole lot of explaining! Hambo says:
According to new studies, “tameness” was supposedly selected for in human evolution, resulting in genetic changes as we “domesticated” ourselves. One researcher suggests that over the last alleged 200,000 years “humans began acquiring skills which would have allowed early humans to gang up against bullies. . . . Those who got along, got ahead.”
He links to this article in Science News: How humans (maybe) domesticated themselves, which — of course — makes no reference to Hambo’s “survival of the fittest” definition of evolution. But he has even more news about the foolishness of evolution. He tells us:
So it’s survival of the fittest, except when, according to a different study, it’s survival of the prettiest, survival of the most moral, or the survival of the least aggressive (according to these studies). It’s a constantly changing story because it’s just that — a story.
For that paragraph, Hambo links to an article in the New York Times: Challenging Mainstream Thought About Beauty’s Big Hand in Evolution. Having convincingly demonstrated that evolution is just a bunch of crazy nonsense that is always changing its story, he continues:
And if bullies supposedly died out as we “tamed” ourselves — why are there still so many bullies? If “those who got along, got ahead,” how do you explain the many brutal dictators (such as Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini) and others throughout history who got ahead by killing people? Human history is not a story of increasing peace and harmony as we have supposedly learned to get along. It’s a story littered with evil and bullies — and the tale continues.
We thought guys like Hitler and Stalin were Darwin’s fault — see AIG: Darwin = Hitler, Stalin, Abortion, etc.. But then, suddenly, that’s no longer true. Let’s read on:
From a biblical perspective, this view makes sense. God’s original creation was perfect, but mankind sinned against God. We now have a sin nature. Humanity isn’t getting progressively better — we started out perfect, but sin tainted that, and it has tainted mankind ever since [scripture reference].
So where are we? Hambo says evolutionists are always changing their story, and now he just changed his story. Okay. Here’s the end of his post:
When we look at the world through the lens of God’s Word, what we see makes sense.
We can’t argue with that. Can you, dear reader?
