Embryology Rejects The Lie of Evolution
The event of birth is a proof of a supreme creation, yet evolutionists try to make reference to it in defence of their theory. The fact that, in the creation of a new human being, every stage develops according to a very delicate design, is today an undisputed fact in the field of embryology. In this case, how do evolutionists try to interpret this fact of creation in reference to their theory?
At the end of the 19th century, the evolutionist biologist Ernst Haeckel proposed his thesis, "Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny". In this thesis, Haeckel claimed that living embryos in the process of their development repeat the evolutionary process that their supposed ancestors went through. For example, he proposed that a human embryo in its mother's womb first displayed the characteristics of a fish, then of a reptile before finally turning into a human being.
Before long it was realized that this thesis did not reflect the facts. The gills that supposedly appeared in the first periods of a human embryo were actually the human inner ear canal and the parathyroid and thymus glands; the part of the embryo resembling an egg yoke was actually the sack responsible for the production of the baby's blood; the part that was thought to be the tail was identified as the human spine.
These are now facts well attested in the world of science. Shortly after Haeckel proposed his theory, evolutionists themselves acknowledged that his claims were false. Two leading neo-Darwinists, George Gaylord Simpson and W. Beck acknowledged the invalidity of this theory:
It can be understood from this confession that Haeckel's attempts to use embryology as a proof for evolution are completely without foundation and amount to nothing more than sophistry. The details we have given in the course of this book, as general as they were, of the miracle of human creation are an undeniable proof of the truth of creation.
