Welcome to the home of "The Question Evolution Project". There is no truth in minerals-to-man evolution.

The "Obstetrical Dilemma" and False Evolution

Although cesarean sections (c-sections) for difficult childbirth was well-established in the 20th century, the practice of cutting open the womb to save a child has been around quite a spell. Difference is, it used to be done when the mother was dead or dying, whereas nowadays, all participants are likely to stay alive.


Borrowed from The Princess Bride, 1987
In their persistent quest to give Darwin credit for perceived changes, some scientists were presenting the idea that the so-called obstetrical dilemma. This is supposedly where a woman's pelvis needed to evolve to give birth to larger-brained babies, but also the apelike ancestor needed to evolve bipedalism. So, c-sections may be influencing natural selection. But this idea has serious difficulties, and ignores how our Creator brilliantly designed the human female pelvis for childbirth. Also, once again the Darwinoids are playing bait 'n' switch games, equivocating with the word evolution when none is in evidence.
Bigger newborn babies, statistically speaking, have a better chance of survival than tiny ones. So long as they can get out of their mothers’ bodies safely, that is! A study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that the modern practice of Caesarean section is rapidly altering human evolution. Ever bigger babies carrying genes for ever smaller pelvic bones can now survive, the authors say, leading to bigger babies and more moms with small pelvic dimensions in the human population.

An estimated three to six percent of newborns around the world cannot negotiate their way through the birth canal. This mismatch of baby’s head and mother’s pelvis is called fetopelvic disproportion, or cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD). Before the advent of safe obstetrical intervention through Caesarean section in the 20th century, CPD was often a death sentence for these babies and their mothers, and those who managed to be born with great difficulty often suffered severe damage.
