Evolutionary Ancestors and Just-So Stories

People may tend to think that evolution describes the origin of man from apelike ancestors, and that part does get a great deal of attention, but there is more to it. When biblical creationists use expressions like molecules-to-man evolution, it is not an exaggeration.

Sciences and evolution use a prairie schooner-full of abbreviations, one of which is LUCA: last universal common ancestor. This was not some critter, but even further back in the realm of imagination. Remember biology classes? It led to prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and then more acronyms.

The prokaryotes supposedly evolved and gave rise to (lingo for "evolution stuff happened") LUCA, which brought out archaea (cells without a nucleus). Last ancestors of one thing, first ancestors of another — fundamentalist evolutionists will throw links to these stories at creationists and claim victory for "science."

But there is no sign of evidence, people are given Just-So Stories by tinhorns who weren't there, writing according to the evolutionary planograms. Not all evolutionists are in agreement with these tales. Worse for them, rescuing devices for their stories are offered, and those are also in dispute. Once again, they put a great deal of effort into denying the Creator God who will one day hold them accountable.

As part of the evolutionary model, evolutionists must explain the origins of complex life-forms, including eukaryotic life. According to the model, there was a single common ancestor of all life that eventually developed into the prokaryotes and eukaryotes we have today. The first eukaryote then developed into the wide variety of eukaryotes we see today. Since there are approximately 8.7 million estimated species of eukaryotes on earth, the evolutionists have a lot of explaining to do.
