As a final nail in the coffin of
the creation account, let us examine a definitive hole in the creation mythos on day five. On this day, birds
are created, alongside the animals in the seas. On day six, land animals are created. However, again in using the
fossil record, we find a glaring hole in this account. Birds are direct
descendants of dinosaurs. Fossil evidence establishes that dinosaurs
and birds had congruent features such as hollow, pneumatized
bones, were nest-builders and had similar digestive behaviors. Archaeopteryx is a classic example of
a fossil that fills a missing link gap.
us to our inevitable dilemma. Land animals are clearly created on the sixth day, after
birds! This runs in direct
opposition to what Paleontology has shown us! We can even
ignore the overwhelming evidence for evolution because the bible does
not subscribe to this fact. Let us examine the fossil record.
Fossils in lower layers died longer ago than specimens found in higher
layers. It can be viewed as the earth tree
rings. When do you ever find a bird
fossil at a portion of the earth’s strata lower than the first land
animals? Never! It never happens! Therefore, you can exclude
all of the overwhelming evidence that science has culled together, such as
similar bodily characteristics, habits, conclusive DNA evidence (it is scientifically proven that a T-Rex
and bird are a closer match DNA-wise than an alligator, a reptile) and the
fact that feathers developed in the fossil record with dinosaurs and no
other such animal. The layers of the stratum show that the land
animals came first and that birds came after. There is no way to provide
confluence to the text. It is irreconcilable.
Intelligence has a limit, much like a cup of tea. It can be filled to the brim but pass that and it will spill its delicious contents on the table. It can only hold so much. You cannot make the cup larger, so you are stuck with that capacity. You are born with this “cup”.
The brain is composed of approximately 100 billion neurons but weighs only 3 pounds. A lot is crammed into this small organ. Your entire ability to emerge from consciousness stems from the matter that is compressed within the confines of your skull. Everything that is you, minus your interactions with reality is comprised of that very organ.
Earlier I stated, “You’re born with this cup”. That is not entirely accurate. You were created with that cup, your cranium. The extremities of your skull are the limits of your mind. The intelligence you have does, in a way correspond with your skulls volumetric capacity. Therefore, your cranium is in effect limiting your IQ potential. Your body mass to brain matter ratio has been maximized. Nevertheless, is it really the skull that is limiting you?
How are we born? Our mothers push us out through the birth canal and there, we find our true limit. It is the cervix! If we were able to evolve larger brains, we would in effect cause great damage to the vagina. Already, episiotomies are done to enlarge the birth “opening”. If we evolve any larger heads, this could lead to a painful outcome for the female gender, a possibly fatal result. In essence, we can blame the vagina for our ignorance, insofar as to why we are not even smarter, why our minds have reached our solar maxima.
However, is it really the fault of women? According to monotheists around the world, God CREATED humanity! Did God construct humans with inherent faults? Did he intentionally shackle our minds within our inherent bony structure? Can this be called intelligent design? What say you?
