Evolution in Bob Jones Biology Textbook

I’m not going to write a post rebutting this now, and I’ll make the assumption that my readers are familiar enough with evolutionary theory to see what is wrong here. (Edit: I have added captions to the pictures.) These are a few pictures from the pages of the Biology for Christian Schools textbook that I mentioned in my previous post. This is actually what I was taught as fact in my Christian homeschool experience. If I had never gone to university and been exposed to different ideas, I might still even think this crap is true.

I may go into more detail why these are wrong in later posts, but for now I’ll just let the images speak for themselves (I’ve gone ahead and added rebuttals to the captions).

Click the images for a larger, legible view.

 

 

Edit: Just in case you felt your IQ slip a few points after seeing that, here is a good basic account of human evolution from Berkeley’s Understanding Evolution site.

  1. Wow. Just wow. It’s amazing that anybody fed on a diet of this rubbish ever manages to understand real science.

  2. Woooow, okaaay. Sure evolution doesn’t make sense when you ignore the majority of mechanisms that cause it, and go out of your way to find examples of hoaxes and weak evidence to present as “the evidence” for evolution.

    And that brat thing is just stupid. I don’t know much about bat evolution, but when my professor went over the evolution of eyes, she gave examples of currently living organisms which have eye structures similar to various stages in the evolution of eyes (e.g. eye spots) to show how each step along the way provided an advantage to the organism who had it. An evolutionary history which includes awkward, disadvantaged middle stages doesn’t make sense and is not what evolution predicts.
