National Genographic and Creationism

genomics

Check out The National Genographic project run by the National Geographic Society!
To date over 600,000 humans have had their DNA analyzed to determine their genetic ancestry.

From their “About” page:
“Working together, we are unveiling the story of the greatest journey ever told: how our ancestors migrated from their African homeland to populate the Earth tens of thousands of years ago”

WHAT!? “…tens of thousands of years ago”??? But how can that be? Ken Ham, Ray Comfort, and a few other die-hard Creationists insist the earth can only be 6-10,000 years old!

But wait there’s more from the Genographic Project:
“Included in the markers we will test for is a subset that scientists have recently determined to be from our hominin cousins, Neanderthals and the newly discovered Denisovans, who split from our lineage around 500,000 years ago. As modern humans were first migrating out of Africa more than 60,000 years ago, Neanderthals and Denisovans were still alive and well in Eurasia”

60,000 years ago??, 500,000 years ago??, NO, NO, NO… Ken and Ray wouldn’t lie to us. Evolution, embryology, the Big Bang are “lies from the Pit of Hell” a Republican Congressman from Georgia told us so last year! This genetics stuff MUST be from the Pit of Hell too, just another example of the competing worldview of evil, atheistic, materialist science-ism!!

There is a whole world of science that continues along at full speed filling out the details of evolutionary theory across a dozen or more disciplines, genetics in the forefront among them. The American Public has been hosed horribly by the pseudoscience of Creationism. Americans deserve to know the knowledge that we already have and the daily exponential accumulation of data that further supports evolution. Evolution is a given, like gravity or the existence of germs.
If we as secularists don’t counteract the misinformation campaign of the religious based knowledge-deniers the hoodwinking of the American public will continue.

So get yourself educated AND find out about the details of your human ancestry. If you have a couple hundred bucks to spare, consider joining in the other 600,000 plus of your fellow humans who have submitted their DNA to the Genographic Project. Not only will you be finding out fascinating information about yourself and human evolution, you will be contributing to a database for a field that didn’t even exist 15 years ago.
One species, one tribe.
