Creationist pastor completely misses the point of evolution.
Ever since the first publication of Darwin’s ‘On The Origin Of Species’, religious fans who have found it impossible to let go of the fairy tale have grasped at whatever they could to ‘disprove’ evolution.
And it is still occurring today. Pastor Gene Kim has recently uploaded a video to Youtube in which he claims he has got to the bottom of genetics.
All living things are made up of DNA, and biologically speaking, we have much more in common with our four-legged friends than many of us would like to admit.
One of the reasons evolution was so repulsive to some when it was first proposed, is that the closeness between humans and monkeys was an idea too frightening to comprehend.
But we do share many similar genetic codes with monkey, and fish and every other living creature for that matter. It is what keeps us alive and thriving in this world that we have been able to adapt over millions of years to be able to breathe in the air (or water, if you happen to be a fish).
These genetic building blocks are what keeps the human and the animal kingdom alive. Many of the genes have been discovered, but likewise there is still so much to find out.
Sadly when you look at this through a Creationist’s eyes, you don’t see the earth as the product of the past, you see that it was made to be like this in the first place.
Pastor Gene Kim’s video sees him attempt to map out the genetic code of the earth, and come to the conclusion that we have similar genes because – God made us all!
If the notion behind this hasn’t already tickled you, he even adds in a “Try again, Richard Dawkins!” for good measure.
