The Bipedalism Impasse
Human beings move in a completely different way
from other creatures. No other animal can walk upright on its two
feet as humans do. Evolutionists, however, claim that the bipedal
upright stride of humans evolved by steps from the apes' quadripedal
claim is not true. Firstly, the fossil record shows that no life
form ever had a way of movement in between the human and the ape
stride. Detailed examinations of the fossil record prove that creatures
of the Australopithecus and Homo habilis classes walked on all fours
and by leaning forward, while human races such as Homo erectus and
Neanderthal man walked upright just like us. This means that the
bipedal upright stride emerged with humans for the first time and
all of a sudden.
anatomical research conducted in recent years establishes that the
gradual evolution of the ape stride into the human stride is impossible.
In 1996, the British anatomist Robin Crompton, who conducted research
into the bipedal stride of humans, concluded that a motion in between
the ape stride and the human stride is not possible. Crompton showed
that a living thing can either walk upright or on all fours. A type
of in-between stride would be quite ineffective.60
entire skeletal structure of apes is designed according to
the quadripedal stride. Their arms are long and their skeleton
is bent forward. Moreover, their hands and feet are curved
to enable them to climb trees.
The immense gap between man and ape is not limited
solely to bipedalism. Many other issues still remain unexplained
such as brain capacity, the ability to talk, and so on. Elaine Morgan,
an evolutionist paleoanthropologist, makes the following confession
in relation to this issue:
The "half bent" creatures pictured by evolutionists are
actually nothing but figments of the imagination. Scientific
findings demonstrate that no creatures having a stride in
between that of the ape and man ever existed in history.
Four of the most outstanding mysteries about
humans are: 1) why do they walk on two legs? 2) why have they lost
their fur? 3) why have they developed such large brains? 4) why
did they learn to speak?
The orthodox answers to these questions are:
1) 'We do not yet know'; 2) 'We do not yet know'; 3) 'We do not
yet know'; 4) 'We do not yet know'. The list of questions could
be considerably lengthened without affecting the monotony of the
In short, "the evolution of man" is
nothing but an unsubstantiated tale. Man is created by God already
equipped with all the abilities and features he possesses.
