The Family That Walks on all Fours

I watched an interesting documentary last week. throws a new spin on the evolution of the human being. Did we come from apes? It was very unbiased and took in the views of many from all sides of the evolution debate. Including the creationists in America (one preacher actually condemned this family like it was their fault evolution was even thought of! Biggot!).

Ironically, the family themselves are devout muslims and dont believe in evolution whatsoever.

Conclusion? Im not sure this is any kind of proof that we once quadropedal, however it has given us new insight into the complex relationship between cultural and genetic make up as well as the fact that more than one thing contributed towards this phenomina. It seems to be a series of things such as genetic malfunction, "reawakening" of a redundant gene, brain damage in a unique part of the brain and cultural upbringing.

If those malfunctions and traits resulted in a human being that instead of walking on all fours, instead could heal themselves of cancer for example, then there would be a good case for witnessing forward evolution. All because of a genitic mix up and a lucky set of intefering circumstances...

Heres the link.

It always surprises me when people can't believe that what we are today is the result of a very long series of "accidents," "malfuncitons," "mutations," and the like. Is this just too complex for some people to understand or believe?

Its not the complexity which forces them to not believe, its because it flies in the face of their 7 days of creation and their god that created it all... Most of these objectors in the christian world are American. This small sect will eventually liberalise their views and be more objective in the future, but it will be a while yet. Most of Europe and the US moved on from all that a long time ago. But a small section of the US still holds this minority view for some reason - weird, as there is no basis for their argument whatsoever. None at all. Just an old book.

I read an article about these people, they teach their young that "the Bible is the history book of the universe." (direct quote from a 12 year old while the mother looked on w/a huge smile) It's just sad...

But its harmless. I watched a program on neo-nazis around the world and how they spread their message through music. There was a couple of twins, young girls who couldnt have been older than 9 or 10 who were on stage singing about hatred, clean blood, antisemetic views etc etc. Taught by their father, himself a neo-nazi... Thats sick. Apparently, these kids actually have a CD out in America. Produced by a neo nazi label, recorded in a neo-nazi studio, distributed by a.... you get the picture.

Guess which country this was in?.... USA
