Were You a Fish?

Romans 1:25
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

In 1866, Professor Ernst Haeckel, a German zoologist and strong supporter of Darwin, published his theory that every developing embryo recapitulates all the previous evolutionary stages of its species. So the human embryo began as a fish with gills, then became frog-like, and so on until at the ninth month it was Haeckel’s discredited embryo illustrations are still in some school textbooksfully human. The real embryologists of his day investigated Haeckel’s claims and discovered that he had faked some of his drawings to fit his theory! That should have been the end of Haeckel’s theory then and there.

Unfortunately, the theory became more important than the facts in the minds of Darwin’s followers, and it has been paraded as prima facie evidence for evolution in every school biology textbook since 1866! The facts are that this theory was discredited and rejected decades ago by the scientific community while even the Encyclopedia Britannica wrote the theory off as being of “little significance.”
  
Only recently, after exposure of this anti-scientific idea by creationists, have some textbooks now stopped using embryology as evidence for evolution. Nevertheless, it continues to be used as “scientific” justification for abortion, and this, too, needs to be exposed to the light of God’s truth.

Prayer: 
Father in heaven, it is especially easy even for Your people to fall into inadvertent worship of the creation in place of the Creator in our materialistic age. Help me to root this sin out of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
