Remember the old school-textbook illustration showing an ape following a crouching caveman following an upright modern man, intended to display evolution? It somehow remained in textbooks long after science obsoleted the idea behind it for an absolute lack of evidence. It still pops up, here and there. Because it is very important to modern Statists to deny any possibility of an intelligent designer of the universe and the really rather laughable idea that all the complexities of life somehow ‘evolved’ from nothing on their own is an assertion of that.
Asserting it however, doesn’t prove it. Neither of course, does asserting an intelligent designer doing the job, prove the beliefs of Biblical creationists. The current truth, avoided wherever possible, is that we don’t know how all we see came about. We just know that it’s there. And naturally, some even refuse to admit that much, though they have no explanation of whatever they are sitting on when they do so.
It’s all rather silly, except that getting rid of God is so important to Lefty politicians today, so that they can take His place on the power ladder. Which is why you may not have heard of: “Epigenetics“.
That is perfectly respectable science now giving the evolution folk–the politicians, not the scientists–fits. It has raised Lamarck from the dead into a zombie-like life; you remember, Lamarck was the guy who said you could inherit traits produced by your environment? And everybody laughed and yelled: “DNA!” and his funny idea was buried with him. Well, now his idea has been exhumed from his grave and taken on its own awful (if you’re an evolutionist) life. Biological science has even provided the name “epigenetics” for it.
Genes aren’t the only means for passing on your traits…some, that you’ve acquired in your life experience, are picked up and passed on via your DNA just as your genes are passed on. A whole new mechanism of human heredity has popped up to amaze some and infuriate others. Outside of peer-reviewed, technical science publications though, it’s not getting much press since it (forgive me) makes a monkey of the Revealed Political Truth needed by the Statists. Oh, well! Read the link (Science Daily). And when the mighty assure you they are teaching you The Truth, remember those old Romans, who took everything cum grano salis. An awful lot of snake oil on the market, these days…
