The Tale of Man's Evolution
Just like evolutionists' other claims on the origin of life forms, their claim about the origin of man has likewise no scientific basis. Discoveries show that "the evolution of man" is simply a tale.
Darwin put forward his claim that human beings and monkeys descended from a common ancestor in his book The Descent of Man published in 1871. From that time onwards, the followers of Darwin have tried to bolster this claim. But despite all the research that has been carried out, the claim of "human evolution" has not been backed up by any concrete scientific discovery, particularly in the fossil field.
The man in the street is for the most part unaware of this fact, and thinks that the claim of human evolution is supported by a great deal of firm evidence. The reason for this incorrect opinion is that the subject is frequently discussed in the media and presented as a proven fact.
But real experts on the subject are aware that the claim of "human evolution" has no scientific foundation. David Pilbeam, one of Harvard University's palaeontologists, says the following:
And William Fix, the author of an important book on the subject of palaeoanthropology, makes this comment:
This claim of evolution, which "lacks any evidence," starts the human family tree with a species of monkey called Australopithecus. According to the claim, Australopithecus began to walk upright over time, his brain grew, and passed through a series of stages to come to man's present state (Homo sapiens.) But the fossil record does not back up this scenario. Despite the claim of all kinds of intermediate forms, there is an impassable barrier between the fossil remains respectively of man and monkeys. Furthermore, it has been revealed that the species which are portrayed as each others' ancestors are actually contemporary species that lived in the same period. Ernst Mayr, one of the most important proponents of the theory of evolution in the 20th century, accepts this truth: "The chain reaching as far as Homo sapiens is actually lost."47
