Skip to comments.Paranthropus Boisei: Human Ancestors More Rugged than Originally Thought
Posted on 12/07/2013 8:13:09 PM PST by gooblah
Human ancestors, at least some of them, were more rugged and powerfully built than scientists originally thought that they were, if the most recently discovered bones of Paranthropus boisei are any indication. They had powerful forearms well-suited for climbing trees, as well as being bipedal.

Or, to paraphrase, Evolution did it. End of Discussion.
I can no longer believe in macro-evolution, as I once did in my ignorance of the facts. Four issues amongst many that I can raise:
1.Complex systems with multiple interdependent parts, like the eye, ear, respiratory system, etc. exclude reasonable belief that they evolved randomly.
2. The encoding of DNA, in humans consisting of 23 molecules each containing from 500 thousand to 2.5 million nucleotide pairs. That this occurred by random chance, regardless of the time frames involved and number of iterations, is incredible.
3. Entropy. Regardless of the outside energy of the sun, there must be some ordering force. Order never comes from randomness, and information never increases sporadically over time. The exact opposite is observed all around us.
4. Living fossils and unevolved specimens: 46 million year old mosquito's that are indistinguishable from today's specimens, 65 million year old crocodile fossils, caelacanths - the once thought extinct now discovered living missing link that does not walk on it's protuberances as once spouted as proof of fish to land evolution, etc.
We each must weigh the evidence: It is either one big accident, and we evolved from rain falling on rocks (abiogenesis), or someone created us. I choose to believe the latter. Some people actually believe the pictures in this thread are their ancestors (tripe). To each his own!
Looks like my MIL except for the ears.
