Quote of the Week; Human Genetics and Time

How Moses Manages to Stay One Step Ahead of Modern Science

We are finding that humans have very, very shallow genetic roots which go back very recently to one ancestor…” Hammer, U. of Arizona, US News and World Report, 12/4/95

“...regardless of the cause, evolutionists are most concerned about the effect of a faster mutation rate. For example, researchers have calculated that “Mitochondral Eve”…lived 100000 to 200000 years ago in Africa. Using the new clock, she would be a mere 6000 years old.”

Gibbons, in journal, Science, vol. 279, pp.28,29, 1/2/1998

Bear in mind that it has only been very recently that the scientific consensus has adopted the view that all humans are related, let alone closely related. From Darwins time until the early 1960’s, the different races were believed to have evolved from different species of hominids. The Asians from orangatans, the Europeans from chimpanzees, etc. etc.  However if you had been a hill billy living in the mountains of Tennessee a hundred years ago, far from the centers of modern academia, you would have believed that all humans were descended from a common ancestor in very recent history. Having rejected Moses, our modern scholars have to work day and night, burning up their computers, to discover what any dumb cowboy knew a century ago. Anybody want a dab of Copenhagen?
