Dr. Terry Mortenson, who has a PhD in history of geology, has lectured on the creation-evolution controversy in 35 countries since the late 1970s. Here is a presentation that was livestreamed on February 26, 2021, that explains why we should view the theory of human evolution not as scientific but rather as a grand illusion, and a scientific fraud.

But before, I would like to remind the readers that the theory of evolution was put forward by Charles Darwin, who was a British naturalist. Darwin had defined evolution as ‘descent with modification,’ that is, the idea that species change over time, give rise to new species, and share a common ancestor. For some pure coincidence, both Darwin’s father and grandfather were freemasons, and although his name does not appear on any member rolls of freemasonry, according to Mackey’s Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, we read that: “Before coming to Derby in 1788, Dr. [Erasmus] Darwin had been made a Mason in the famous Time Immemorial Lodge of Cannongate Kilwinning, No. 2, of Scotland. Sir Francis Darwin, one of the Doctor’s sons, was made a Mason in Tyrian Lodge, No. 253, at Derby, in 1807 or 1808. His son Reginald was made a Mason in Tyrian Lodge in 1804. The name of Charles Darwin does not appear on the rolls of the Lodge but it is very possible that he, like Francis, was a Mason.” And what is also important to note, is that he described his state of mind as an agnostic one, meaning that he questioned the existence of God. Can the readers see why he challenged the view that God had originally created all species of plant and animal life and that the theory of evolution does not come from a person who was truly focused on God?

Here is the lecture about Dr. Terry Mortenson:

“We are talking about Ape-men, Adam, and the Gospel. How many of you have ever seen that picture before?

Yeah, the evolutionists love to use this picture to convince us that we evolved from some ape-like creature over millions of years. And it’s being very effective in 2017. Gallup Poll did a survey of Americans to find out their views on human origins and they discovered that 38% hold to the Biblical view down from 47% in the past. Another 38% hold to the Theistic evolution – that is, that we did evolve from ape-like creatures but God was mysteriously guiding the process behind the scenes. And then another 19% hold to an Atheist view which says God didn’t have anything to do with it, because there is no God. So I did the simple Math and found that 57% of Americans believe that we evolve from an ape-like creature. Well is that really sound thinking.

I want to begin by answering that by answering another question or letting someone else answer it. It’s a short video, it’s actually a trailer that ran in the Natural History Museum in London for a number of years and it features Sir David Attenborough who is the voice for science for the BBC. So, listen to him as he answers the question ‘Who do you think you really are?’

[The clip is shown and here is Sir David Attenborough’s answer: I’m going to take you on a journey, a journey to discover who you really are and where you came from. But you’re not just going to sit there listening to me. You’re going to be part of the experience, and you’ll be able to examine some of the evidence for evolution along the way. If you have a look at your screens now, you can rotate the modern, human skull, and you’ll see the domed forehead, the small face, the small front teeth, and on the lower jaw, a chin. If you keep looking through your screen, you will see Australopithecus Afarensis, an extinct hominid who lived about three million years ago. Deep sea anglers live at a depth in the ocean below a thousand meters, where there’s no light so they’re living in total darkness. It was our fishy ancestors that first developed some of our most fundamental features: our skeleton, jaws, and four limbs. Hold up your screen, and look through it one last time. You’ll see the tree that represents all of life, past and present. We started this film with a question: ‘Who do you think you are?’ And we can end it with an answer. You are, undoubtedly, like any other living thing on earth, a member of one single family of life, descended from a common ancestor living thousands of millions of years ago.’]

There you have it. Your great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather is a little tiny bacterium, popped into existence in the primordial oceans about three and a half billion years ago. That is scientific fact, according to the majority of scientists. And in that video you saw the evolution tree of life which was represented by those blue laser beams where each of the branches represents different kinds of plants, animals, and people all descended from a common ancestor. In contrast to that we have the creation forest of life based on what the bible says about origins and each of the trees is a different kind of creature. So, one of those trees is the dog kind, one is the elephant kind, one is the chicken kind, one is mankind and the branches simply represent variation within the kind. And so, one of the branches on the evolutionary tree is the branch of hominid evolution. And the evolutionists believe that all of the chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, modern man, all of us as well as Neanderthal, Cromagnon, Home Erectus, Homo Ergaster, Australopithecines – these are all descended from a common ancestor – an ape-like creature.

In contrast, creationists who have looked into this, think that the orangutan is probably one kind of an ape, chimps and gorillas, and maybe Australopithecines are another kind of ape but mankind would include all of us as well as Neanderthal, Cromagnon, Home Erectus, Home Ergaster – those are all true humans descended from Adam and Eve.”
