I received this in an email from a friend, and I thought the information was worth passing along. Lou
EmbryologyAn example often given to try to convince students of the evolution theory is the long discredited idea that the embryo growing in the mother has "gill slits."
Ernst Haeckel, a German embryology professor, invented this silly idea in 1869, after he read Darwin's book. He claimed that the embryos of all different animals look very similar as they develop inside their mother. He even made huge charts of his drawings of these different unborn creatures and traveled all over Germany and converted people into believing the evolution theory.
The truth of the matter is, he lied. His own university held a trial and convicted him of fraud. While it is true that the human embryo has little wrinkles of skin under its head, these are not gill slits. They never functioned as a breathing appartus at any time. Actually, the little folds of skin develop into bones in the ear and glands in the throat. To teach that the has gill slits is simply a lie.
This teaching needs to be removed from real science text books.
It is interesting that this idea has been proven wrong since 1875, yet it is still used in textbooks all across the world as evidence of evolution. It appears that someone is trying to brainwash you into believing this theory. It is also a heart-rending fact that this is the only scientific evidence used to justify abortion.
Abortionists would like for us to believe that the baby growing inside the mother is not yet a human being. Nothing could be further from truth!
