Many atrocities were perpetrated on Aboriginal communities because of these evolutionary beliefs.
Incredibly, in the 1800s, it was not uncommon for Aboriginal people to be hunted and shot as specimens for science. The first Aboriginal settlers to Australia were descended from people as intelligent and inventive as any other culture at that time.
Computer science and mathematics are used to elaborate the means for transforming simple descriptions of archaeological data into cultural, economic, and social reconstructions of earlier societies.
It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. The same may be said of natural selection, variations, and mutations.
Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door. Evolutionist arguments work equally well in a creation model.2.
I do not mean evidence is weak in some areas or lacking in others. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. What is Known by Science The Bible is important in any discussion about the origin and progression of life for it is God’s revelation of reality. But again, equally strong arguments can be made that similar morphologies, cytologies, and pathologies demonstrate creation. We observe incredibly diverse and complex designs in living organisms.
Since evolution has no scientific support, what is it? When evolutionists talk about science in relation to evolution they use microevolution (which everyone has observed and agrees happens) as evidence for evolution. We observe numerous changes can occur within a species. Evolutionists maintain we have a universal genetic code. The evolutionist claims the universal genetic code is evidence of a common ancestor from which all life descended. Even if someone demonstrated all watches came from a common source, they would also discover they came into existence by a watchmaker. It is at the same scientific level as belief the earth is upheld by a giant turtle.4. Examination of living organisms reveals kind produces kind. Given the complexity of life, mathematicians have demonstrated insufficient time exists to make the evolutionary changes and variations we see. Societies and cultures may have different particular laws but everyone agrees it is wrong to steal, to lie, to murder, etc.7.
Ancient astronomical knowledge can be inferred through the study of the alignments and other aspects of these archaeological sites.
