Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Another Origin Giveaway

I’m pleased to say that 26,000 copies of On the Origin of Species were freely given out at universities in Australia and New Zealand on the 9th of this month--to preempt meetings by Richard Dawkins to be held there later this week.

Here’s a clip from the national TV network in New Zealand:


One thousand more copies will be given out this Thursday. How wonderful it is that we are seeing a fulfillment of what Charles Darwin suggested in the Foreword to his book--that both sides be presented.

Do you remember Ida--the "missing link" that was found a year ago? "This is the first link to all humans," Hurum, of the Natural History Museum in Oslo, Norway, said in a statement. Ida represents "the closest thing we can get to a direct ancestor."

Sir David Attenborough said Darwin "would have been thrilled" to have seen the fossil -- and says it tells us who we are and where we came from. "This is the one that connects us directly with them . . . Now people can say 'okay we are primates, show us the link . . . The link they would have said up to now is missing -- well it's no longer missing." Well, it was bogus. "Science News" headlined:

'Missing Link' Fossil Was Not Human Ancestor as Claimed, Anthropologists Say

ScienceDaily (Mar. 3, 2010) — A fossil that was celebrated last year as a possible "missing link" between humans and early primates is actually a forbearer of modern-day lemurs and lorises, according to two papers by scientists at The University of Texas at Austin, Duke University and the University of Chicago.

In an article now available online in the Journal of Human Evolution, four scientists present evidence that the 47-million-year-old Darwinius masillae is not a haplorhine primate like humans, apes and monkeys, as the 2009 research claimed.[1]

Sir David Attenborough said, "Now people can say 'okay we are primates, show us the link . . . The link they would have said up to now is missing -- well it's no longer missing." It’s still missing, so it’s back to saying that there’s no proof that we are primates. Of course, that won’t shake the faith of true believers. This is how they learn. Mistakes. Continual mistakes. And there’s a lot more to learn.

Thank God that another 26,000 people learned the truth this week.
