I look at the theory of evolution for mankind sort of like a made for TV movie that is fictionalized, but based on factual structure for the basic theme and outcome of the story. Why? Because we still have too many missing steps to conclude that man indeed is evolved from an ape-like creature.
One of the logical problems I have with this theory is that the ape-like creatures remain, pretty much in tact from their origins. Other species have tended to evolve in order to survive, abandoning their former form completely.
In the study of human origins, paleoanthropology stares in frustration back to a dark age from three million to less than two million years ago. The missing mass in this case is the unfound fossils to document just when and under what circumstances our own genus Homo emerged.
The fact is that no homo fossils have been found that conclusively prove the evolution theory as it pertains to mankind. The Homo doesn’t appear until about 200,000 years ago.
Hmmm… So why do we allow the people who write the science books and the history books the priviledge to decide what our children are taught, when they are quite clearly teaching theory without including the OTHER theory that has been accepted by generations of people around the world, including those great people who built this great country of America.
Interestingly enough, these same scientists may be on the verge of finding the so-called God particle.
