Your Eyes Prove that Evolution Is False

Once again, the evidence shows that evolution never happened. That’s the lesson to be learned today from a new post at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG) — the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.

The title is Has the Primate Visual System Been Preserved Through Millions of Years?, and it was written by ol’ Hambo himself. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

In a new study [Hambo links to this: The World’s Smallest Primate Reveals the Incredible Preservation of Our Visual System Through Millions of Years of Evolution ], scientists compared the visual system of a very tiny lemur from Madagascar, the mouse lemur, with that of other primates and found that “the size of these visual processing units is identical in all primates, independent of their body size” and that “the way the units are arranged across the brain was totally indistinguishable, following the same rules with mathematical precision . . . [and] the number of nerve cells per visual unit was almost identical.” Now why is this significant?

Hambo explains why it’s significant:

Well, this is considered important in the evolutionary view because mouse lemurs supposedly share “many traits with the very first primates that evolved 55 million years ago.” And this new finding means that the primate visual system (and, of course, humans are lumped in with primates in the evolutionary story) evolved very early in primate history and remained unchanged for tens of millions of years — a big shock for evolutionists.

Hambo thinks you’re shocked by this news. Are you? He says:

The popular science summary of this new study states, “these results suggest an incredible preservation of our visual system.” … Now why might that be? Well, because the evolutionary story is nothing more than a story — a fairy tale!

Hambo explains why it’s a fairy tale:

The reason primate vision hasn’t evolved in fifty-five million years — and why vision is so complex from the beginning — is because it didn’t evolve! [Gasp!] God created it from the very beginning, fully formed and functioning, so primate kinds and humans could see the world they live in.

Shocking, huh? He continues:

Some people argue that the similarity we see between kinds — such as between primate vision and human vision — points to common ancestry. [Hambo explains why that’s wrong:] But that’s an interpretation of the evidence from an evolutionary starting point.

Hambo gives us a better explanation, from a different starting point:

Another explanation (and one that explains the evidence, including this new study, much better!) is that God used similar design across his creation. [Ooooooooooooh!] It makes sense that creatures that live in the same world, eat much of the same foods, and need to do similar things would have similar designs. We all have the same Designer — the Creator God of the Bible.

Brilliant! And he wraps it all up with this:

Once again, the evidence contradicted the expectations of the evolutionists and their timeline, but it confirms what we’d expect starting with God’s Word, where God created as he relates to us in the book of Genesis.

Are you persuaded, dear reader. If not, then what would it take to convince you that evolution is the belief of fools!

    Another explanation (and one that explains the evidence, including this new study, much better!) is that God used similar design across his creation. It makes sense that creatures that live in the same world, eat much of the same foods, and need to do similar things would have similar designs.

    Except that is not what one sees in nature – if one actually looks. Primates live in many environments and eat diverse diets. Compare color vision in primates to color vision in birds and lizards in the same environment. Ham is lying as usual, but creationists have very little ability to discern lies from truth. From the Pew poll, over 50% of white evangelicals think Trump is intelligent, honest, moral and religious.

  2. Ham is trying to treat the possession of common traits in different species as evidence against evolution, when it’s evidence for it. Idiotic.

  3. “Need to do similar things”
    For God, there is no need. For God, there is no easy or hard. For God, all things are possible without distinction.

  4. Tom: Yes, I didn’t think of that, and I should have. Ham is limiting God’s omnipotence. That’s heresy.

    Personally, although I can’t absolutely prove it, I believe that Ham has actually replaced God with a version of himself – the ultimate hubris.

  5. “Another explanation …..”
    Ah yes, Ol’Hambo expertedly knows how to manage that all important creacrap law:

    1. X is evidence for a creator-god;
    2. -X is also evidence for a creator-god.

    This time X = “similar design”. As Ol’Hambo also handles logic better than anyone else “Once again, the evidence contradicted the expectations of the evolutionists and their timeline” unavoidably follows.
    Our dear SC calls this brilliant and so do I. For Ol’Hambo this is daily breakfast.

  6. @DaveL is uncharitable to Ol’Hambo’s bright shining and exemplary character:

    “Personally, although I can’t absolutely prove it, I believe that Ham has actually replaced God with a version of himself – the ultimate hubris.”
    No, Ol’Hambo is only fourth in line – immediately after the Father, the Son and the Holy Spook. That explains “the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else”.

  7. The eye proves that creatards are not that intelligent.

  8. Ol hambo went after this research paper because the article prominently contains two significant hambone trigger terms. And those terms are evolution and millions of years. His reaction is pavlovian. And so much fun for the rest of us.
