The National Museum of Kenya houses the largest and most complete collection of fossil evidence supporting Darwin’s theory of evolution. Many of the fossils were discovered by legendary paleontologists Louis and Mary Leakey in east Africa around the Olduvai Gorge, Lake Victoria and Lake Turkana. Some of the finds date back as far as 1.7 million years ago.
While most of the sane world sees these findings as a treasure trove of information for humanity, others are not so impressed… namely Christians. Complete story here.
Bishop Boniface Adoyo, who is leading a campaign against the exhibit, had this to say…
"It’s creating a big weapon against Christians that’s killing our faith. When children go to museums they’ll start believing we evolved from these apes… This is not the truth."
If this isn’t the truth, then what is? Thousands of scientists over the course of many years have dedicated their lives to uncovering the truth. They didn’t create it. Scientists simply make an educated guess and then look for supporting evidence. Meanwhile, other scientists with opposing views search for evidence supporting their claims. It’s a sort of self correcting system. But the basis of every claim is providing physical evidence and a bible doesn’t count as physical evidence.
Christians are so irate over evolution that they appear to many as an irrational and ignorant people who dismiss facts and relish folklore. Christians have such an investment in their faith that they are blinded to the reality that surrounds them as it opposes their views.
One last question for my Christian readers… Why are you so afraid of the possibility that we evolved from apes? I’m being totally serious here. Having apes as ancestors doesn’t diminish the uniqueness that we have today. Humans are special no matter where or who we came from… it really doesn’t matter. Does it?
