Common Ancestor?

Because evolutionists have found that claiming we came from primates turns people off. They have adopted a replacement for that which is called “Common Ancestor”. So if you happen to bring up that we came from chimps etc…, they will quickly correct you and say: No we share a common ancestor. Yet while trying to cover up what they really mean, which is that we supposedly did come from primates. They will also often use the:

  • The percentage difference in DNA between us and chimps. apes etc…
  • That the #2 chromosome is fused between us and chimps supposedly proving we evolved from chimps.
  • They will compare features between us and chimps etc…

Yet it is wrong to say we evolved from Chimps?

Common ancestor is also said to prove the evolution tree. Which supposedly also supports the fossil record etc… But there is one major problem that they hope you won’t see. One that they hide so well that even most evolutionists don’t know this problem exist. And that is what is said in the pic below.

Hide this as they may try, it is a huge problem they cannot solve. Feel free to use the pic above to post on blogs, forums. and websites. Watch how short the debate will be because they cannot deny this. In fact more than likely you will have a bunch of hate spewed at you for bringing this up. It’s what they do best when they cannot counter what is said or shown. So expect the worst when you use this pic.

Now there are websites and the Wikipedia will try to say that there are common ancestors to dinosaurs. But if you look at how it’s worded, they don’t really commit to it and they are basically taking a guess to try to fill a huge gap in hopes no one notices. How they claim it between human and chimps is not only DNA percentage of closeness. but the fused #2 chromosome. They don’t have anything like that to test for the common ancestor for dinosaurs is it’s all a guess at best. Yet they will try to pass it off as fact.

And if they try to derail the debate by bringing up the problems with YEC (Young Earth Creation). Post this pic:

How does on debate something that supposedly has no evidence?

Meet Delilah, another one of the Ararat Ridge Zoo’s new residents! She’s a seven-foot-long, 12-year-old Taiwan beauty snake, and she’s made her debut in our daily animal shows here at the Ark Encounter. 

This species is native to Taiwan, and they are also invasive on the island of Okinawa, Japan. They are known as beauty snakes because of their striking coloration, which changes pattern at the end of their bodies. 

Although she’s very long, she is harmless to people and enjoys climbing on her zookeepers while they walk around the zoo to meet guests!

Can you guess who is coming to the Ararat Ridge Zoo? 

Site development is hard at work finishing up our newest outdoor exhibit! Any guesses what new species will be arriving within the next few weeks?

Hint: that is netting over the top of the habitat and there is a river flowing.

Genesis seems to suggest there was originally only one continent. Our seven continents are a result of the global flood.

What about the geological column?

Originally, the geological column was conceived in the context of uniformitarianism. Not all uniformitarian assumptions are true and useful, and this is shown in the idea of the “geological column.” Uniformitarianism states that everything develops or changes gradually and slowly. In order to discredit creation, some naturalists applied this idea to geology and then Darwin applied this idea to biology.*

But not all interpretations are so straightforward. Geologists in the early-to-mid 1800s developed a sequence of changing organisms with time, reflected in the geological column. The time scale with its millions and billions of years was added later by various dating methods. The column was first developed mainly in the United Kingdom and then applied to the whole world. The geological column makes a lot of sense locally and regionally, but it must be shown to be a global sequence, including the ocean bottom sediments. We need to get away from the Grand Staircase and the Grand Canyon as the “proof area.”

Modern science has shown that the fossil changes between layers in the geological column is not an evolutionary progression, as secular scientists once hoped, assuming fossils changed from simple to complex with time. Modern science has shown that all these organisms are very complex—they are just different organisms, although a few general patterns are revealed. For instance, one of the earliest organisms in the geological column, the trilobite, had very complex eyes. Moreover, there is a lack of transitions between major kinds of organisms, as expected in the creation model (Bergman, 2017). The fossil record merely shows sudden appearances, stasis, and then disappearances.

Creation scientists view most fossils as having been buried in Noah’s Flood. Then is the geological column a useful interpretation? Creation scientists are divided on this issue. Even we are divided on the issue. That is why we attempted to resolve the issue, or at least start to resolve this issue, by publishing a forum on the subject (Reed and Oard, 2006). In this forum, advocates who believed the geological column was a precise, global burial sequence of Noah’s Flood; those who believed we should reject the geological column; and those in between, all wrote up their evidence. Then each participant read the papers of the others, and they were required to provide answers to their challenges. It was all done in charity, the way it should work, but unfortunately the question was not resolved. The project showed how to approach such problems. It will take much work and an ability to separate the wheat from the chaff in the literature. At a minimum, respecting each other’s opinions is required until more progress is made. Maybe another published forum is in order?

* Uniformitarianism was an arbitrary assumption developed to discredit and replace biblical history (Oard and Reed, 2017; in press). It seemed plausible in the 1800s, based mainly on three specific geological arguments that supposedly contradicted the Flood. These were: (1) volcanic deposits, (2) the erosion of valleys, and (3) the presence of thick sedimentary rocks. In retrospect, those arguments were simplistic, false, and better explained by the Flood (Oard and Reed, 2018).

In addition to significant logical shortcomings (Reed, 2010), uniformitarianism has run afoul of reality from its inception. Evidence of catastrophes in the rock record are indisputable, including the Ice Age, the Lake Missoula flood, and meteorite or comet impacts. After first rejecting these catastrophes, geologists now claim they are a part of the “uniform history” of earth, proving that self-contradiction is alive and well today. Despite such evidence, rocks and fossils are interpreted within a uniformitarian framework. But many characteristics of rocks and fossils demand a catastrophic interpretation. Sandstones are a good example (Reed and Oard, in press). Are there any aspects of the rock record that demand uniformitarianism? We might see a few. We must weigh possibilities using the principle laid down in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NASB): “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.”

Caleb the African crested porcupine has made his debut in our animal shows! You can see he walks on a harness and leash like a dog and has been doing great on stage in front of guests.

Don’t worry—porcupines cannot shoot their quills...that’s a myth! Caleb was born right here at the Ararat Ridge Zoo and is very accustomed to people. You may get to see him in our shows during your visit to the Ark Encounter!
