Chimpanzees …Our Closest “Relatives”?

Kung naniniwala ka pa rin na LITERAL tayong nanggaling kay Adan at Eba (and the whole creation story) sorry to burst your bubble, but we are NOT, sa tingin mo namuhay sina Adan at Eba kasama ang mga dinosaurs? Even the Vatican and other Religious groups consider the Adam and Eve story as a SYMBOL (for what?I don’t know) and because of the overwhelming EVIDENCE..Evolution is considered as a scientific FACT. For Some Christians Evolution is one of God’s greatest works.

I won’t go into deep scientific details, dahil, una, hindi ako biologist at pangalawa  siguradong nakaaantok yun hehe.. I’ll just try to Explain the basic concepts and common misconceptions about HUMAN Evolution:

May mga taong iniisip na kapag naniwala sila sa Evolution ay parang “itinakwil” na nila ang kanilang Diyos. Yun po ay MALI, Evolution has nothing to do with atheism.. You can still believe in the concept of God and accept evolution at the same time..theory of evolution simply explains the process of gradual change that takes place over many generations, pinapaliwanag lang nito ang mga pagbabago na nangyari sa isang species, kung saan nanggaling ang ating species at kung ano ang proseso na naganap.. “For the first half of geological time our ancestors were bacteria” . Our earth is approximately 4.5 BILLION years old, evolution is slow gradual process, hindi yan overnight event.

HINDI din pinapaliwanag ng Theory of  Evolution ang ORIGIN OF LIFE o kung PAANO NAG UMPISA o SAAN NANGGALING ANG BUHAY,Abiogenesis and Big Bang are different concepts.

Kung nanggaling daw tayo sa Unggoy..Bakit may mga unggoy pa rin?Again..that is WRONG. HINDI tayo nangggaling sa mga chimpanzees, “pinsan” po natin sila, mayroon lang po tayong COMMON ANCESTOR, ang mga unggoy at ang mga tao ay may PAREHONG NINUNO.

Evolution is just a THEORY? Sa pang araw-araw na gamit ang salitang “Theory” ay nangagahulugan na “hunch”, “guess” or “speculation” PERO SA SCIENCE ang salitang “Theory” ay scientific concepts supported by EVIDENCE, gaya ng Heliocentric Theory and Cell Theory.

“The theory of evolution by cumulative natural selection is the only theory we know of that is in principle capable of explaining the existence of organized complexity”

-Richard Dawkins

We have to educate our children about evolution. Because denying Evolution is like denying the History of Human Race.

I highly Recommend this Book:

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution by the biologist Richard Dawkins,
