In making and reiterating his point, that the biblical Adam and Eve could not be the progenitors of the human race, Ark has cited the following excerpts, made by those ‘supposedly’ in the “know”:
Genetic data show no evidence of any human bottleneck as small as two people: there are simply too many different kinds of genes around for that to be true. There may have been a couple of “bottlenecks” (reduced population sizes) in the history of our species, but the smallest one not involving recent colonization is a bottleneck of roughly 10,000-15,000 individuals that occurred between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago. That’s as small a population as our ancestors had, and—note—it’s not two individuals.
Jerry A. Coyne, Ph.D. Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago –
… reported scientific indications that anatomically modern humans emerged from primate ancestors perhaps 100,000 years ago—long before the Genesis time frame—and originated with a population that numbered something like 10,000, not two individuals.”
Dr. Francis Collins: The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief
It’s quite amusing really, and totally disingenuous, that Ark and these scientists would use the above as proof that the human race could not have descended from just two individuals; yet, they would have us believe that all life evolved from just one single cell.
Of note: these “scientific conclusions” are based on evolutionary assumptions. This means that these assumptions have no way of being tested and therefore renders such “conclusions” nothing more than – you guessed it – amusing nonsense! This also further highlights the dishonesty of those intent on deception.
“One cannot legitimately claim something to be proven without testing the assumptions behind that claim.”
So my friend, Ark, while you’re busy taking all the necessary precautions to stay safe in a very dangerous society (as you should)… take a few minutes to ponder why you must do this, since there’s no such thing as ‘sin’…’missing the mark’… ‘crime’ … ‘whatever you may/may not want to call it.’
Not so fast! Hold on to that basketball. Nothing like a slam-dunk that really wasn’t.
Cheers friend! For now, we celebrate something else.
All the best to you.
