Planet of the Aquatic Apes?

Some believers in universal common descent admit that there is no real evidence to support their views, but they are compelled to uphold the narrative of atheistic naturalism. Stephen Jay Gould revamped Goldschmidt's "hopeful monster" idea and called it "punctuated equilibrium" (which also had no evidence). Other evolutionists are floating the aquatic ape theory.

While some evolutionists admit that they have no actual evidence for their beliefs, they maintain atheistic naturalism. In this case, the weird idea of the aquatic ape.

It is interesting to note that naturalists claim that they believe the evidence and deny the fact that they do indeed have faith in their worldviews. When it comes to evolution (especially human evolution), they have faith that evidence will be found someday; evolution of the gaps. They are not consistent with their claims about how science operates!

A claim from people monkeying around with this idea is that scientists are entrenched with evolution of land animals. In addition, it was postulated that humans have similar traits of semi-aquatic animals, so the ear canals of humans and apes were compared. I reckon this smacks of increasing desperation to deny the obvious truth: our Creator made us, not some washed-up materialistic, purposeless processes.
A strong indication of the scarcity of evidence for human evolution is easily seen—not only in the almost biannual major revisions of the theory (see my previous article, 18 April 2020)—but in the wide variety of contrasting theories proposed. On a regular basis, the news media announce new “paleoanthropological evidence has challenged [older] ideas about early hominid evolution.” One of the most bizarre notions is the aquatic ape theory, the idea that humans evolved from some semi-aquatic creature. This is not a fringe theory. It has been widely and favorably covered in some of the leading peer-reviewed scientific journals since at least 1960.

Some impressive evidence has been marshaled in support of this theory, which needs to be addressed. It helps to solve, for instance, what paleoanthropologists agree is the major difficulty in human evolution: bipedal locomotion. Humans are the only bipedal mammal. Supporters of the aquatic ape theory postulate that imagining apes evolving in the water would help to resolve many other inconsistencies between man and the higher primates, such as the existence of paranasal sinuses in humans.
To read the entire article, dive into "Aquatic Ape Theory Revised". Let me know if you see apes entering diving competitions. After all, they should be at home in the water from which they emerged, right? Bueler? Anyone?
