Bill Mahre seems to believe if you look at a monkey, you’ll see proof of evolution.
Bill is well-known for his radical anti-religious views. He seems to equate anyone who believes in God on a par with primates. But up till now, no one has answered him back on the question he posed to a particular Republican senatorial candidate when she said evolution was a myth, (“Have you ever looked at a monkey?”), so I’ll take up the challenge.
Yes, I’ve looked at monkeys many times. They are dirty, disgusting creatures. They live in filth and stink to high heaven.
If you are insinuating they are cousins to humans, perhaps YOU should look at them.
I did not descend from a primate! And neither did Bill Mahre!
We did not evolve from some primate ancestor such as “Lucy”.
We did not evolve from anything.
We were created as humans.
And monkeys were created as monkeys.
Before you scoff and laugh, show me one single fossil of a half-human, half monkey! Go ahead! If this began happening 3 or 4 million years ago, there must have been BILLIONS of critters in a half and half state down through the centuries, so there should be BILLIONS of half and half fossils.
Come on, show me ONE!
They can’t all have disappeared already, now, can they?
I mean we have fossils of dinosaurs that roamed the earth 150 million years ago. We’re still finding thousands and thousands of their bones every year. If we can find those bones, how come we can’t find a single bone of a half man-half monkey? Man, they should be everywhere- especially since this was such a recent development, (evolutionarily speaking).
Tell me this: If WE evolved from primates, how come monkeys are STILL monkeys? In 3 million years since we supposedly began the evolutionary trek from primate to human, we’ve developed language, music, science. We build houses and vehicles and fancy space machines and go to the moon and intercept comets and study the universe.
Meanwhile, monkeys still use sticks to dig for termites. They still live in jungles among the trees. They haven’t evolved into anything . Mama monkeys still give birth to baby monkeys, and ONLY baby monkeys- nothing else. WHY?
Does this mean evolution is UNFAIR to monkeys? That it has decided it isn’t going to let them become anything else?
According to “experts” we developed the ability to speak about seventy-five thousand years ago. Well, hey, if WE did, why didn’t monkeys? If you believe the fallacy that we descended from the same primate line, you have to accept that there were monkeys seventy-five thousand years ago. So what were they doing? Just scratching their heads and watching us, just like they do in zoos today?
Okay, maybe that’s not fair. Let’s take something a little closer in time. Writing first appeared about 5,000 years ago.
True, the first writing was just a bunch of marks in clay tablets, but it was a start. We learned how to write, and that’s a historical fact.
Monkeys were around back then.
Why didn’t they look at their evolving human cousins and say, “If they can do it, so can we!”, and DO IT?
What advantage did they have in NOT learning how to write? Isn’t giving the next generation an advantage over the previous one what evolution is all about? Learning to speak gave humans a big advantage. So did learning to write.
You can claim monkeys are smart because they use sticks to dig out termites, or rocks to break nuts, but that doesn’t prove anything, except the fact that they haven’t learned much in the last few million years. The reason is simple- they haven’t learned anything because they CAN’T learn anything except the most rudimentary things like using that stick. They aren’t equipped with the intelligence man possesses. Which poses another question: where did WE get our intelligence? If we “evolved” it over the millenia, surely monkeys could have done it in that same amount of time.
The fact is monkeys have never been anything but monkeys.If you want to challenge that statement, if you want to prove me to be an ignorant creationist, put your money where your mouth is and show me a monkey that’s evolving into something else today! If evolution is true, you ought to be able to find at least one example, because there are millions of monkeys on earth.
When I was a kid, we had to study about a fossil called “Piltdown man”, which was supposed to be the “missing link”. This was supposed to be absolute proof that evolution was true. The scientifc community went “ape” over it for over 40 years, (pardon the pun, it WAS intended!). Does anyone ever talk about Piltdown man today? No, because it turned out it was all a gigantic hoax. Funny thing, though – the same group of people who laughed at creationists as fools were taken in by one of their own kind! An evolutionist was behind the whole thing.
Last year there was news about a new find- again the positive proof of that long-missing link between man and monkey.
Everybody got taken in by it- for a few months at least. Then it was proven to be nothing more than the bones of a lemur. Another hoax. It disappeared from the news as quickly as it appeared.
Evolutionists go to great lengths to scoff at those who don’t accept their theory. They point to “proofs” that are nothing more than somebody’s opinion about how something is supposed to have happened. But saying it happened a certain way doesn’t mean it did- and doesn’t make it true. Just like Piltdown man!
Bill Mahre’s remark about looking at a monkey is so typical of people who think they are so intellectually superior to the rest of us. It’s the same old modus operandi they’ve used since time began: if you can’t DISprove an argument, mock the other guy. Laugh at him. Scorn him. Tell him he’s stupid or ignorant. But don’t admit you could possibly be wrong.
So for all you evolutionists who are just dying to write me some scathing reply about how stupid and ignorant and dumb I am, here’s a challenge for you:
Go to the zoo and look at a monkey- any monkey.
Look him straight in the eye and ask him how he’s doing.
Ask him how the family is.
Ask him how he’s feeling.
Ask him how he’s getting along with his mother in law.
Then come back and write an article about it. Share it with us! Just be sure every word you write is true. Oh, and if you can’t, it will just prove once again that the whole theory of evolution is just a lot of monkey business!
