What do peppered moths, ancient horses and the Piltdown man have in common? They are all pillars of evidence of evolution that have crumbled. "These pillars sounded so scientific and compelling that multitudes put their faith in the bridge and walked out on it," says Thomas Heinze in his new book, The Vanishing Proofs of Evolution. "As the years passed, mighty floods of new evidence have swept these pillars away! The shaky old bridge still stands as a philosophic or religious belief system held in place by faith, tradition, and the changing new arguments."
For decades the peppered moth was the mainstay of science textbooks. The theory was that, in London, industrial air pollution turned the tree trunks dark and all the light-colored moths were eaten by birds that could see them easier than the dark-colored moths. Thus dark moths proliferated (evolved) and this proved evolution. The "scientist" who discovered this took pictures of moths on tree trunks to prove his point.
It was later discovered that the man who ran the experiment had to paste the moths to the tree trunks to take his pictures. The moths were nocturnal and were asleep in the daytime on the underside of the leaves of the trees. They never naturally rested on tree trunks in the daytime when the birds were awake. Yet, these pictures still appear in modern textbooks as proof of evolution. Heinze points out that all such "proofs" of evolution do not show "transmigration of species" or that the moths evolved into birds or even into butterflies.
In fact, all so-called proofs do not show "uphill evolution" where a simple organism mutates into a more complex one. All such changes (mutations) only damage the organism in some way or leave it the way it was. For example, short legs on a sheep are not an improvement. He only gets caught by the wolf more quickly.
If evolution worked "uphill," then the sheep should turn into a horse so he could escape the wolf more easily. But evolutionists cannot find any uphill evidence. They are forced to try to convince the world that evolution is true by using "downhill" examples.
Heinze lists the most prominent "proofs" used by evolutionists and shows how their credibility has vanished. When your child is given a textbook by a government schoolteacher, you will need information such as found in The Vanishing Proofs of Evolution to help them separate truth from falsehood. It will also help you convince unbelievers that they were special, made by a loving Creator, not descended from some monkey whose ancestor was an amoeba in a primordial pond.
