"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." 1 Peter 3:15
The Little “Mermaid”
So last weekend we were down at the lake and happened to be watching the River Monster marathon. We saw a promo for this show called Mermaids. It looked interesting
so we decided to give it a watch. This show postulated that in addition to evolving into humans, they also evolved into mermaids. In other woods, when the human race was evolving, some went into the woods, and others went to the sea. Most of the show was animation of how they evolved and what they looked like in their transitional states.
The show based all of this on key evidence found from the insides of a shark.
They found a single fin – this is where the feet had bonded together through evolution.
They found a human rib cage.
They found a hand.
They found tools.
And the most incredible part…they found three skull fragments that were tiny. They were then able to create an entire skull from it.
Of course their existence had been kept secret from us courtesy of the US Navy. In fact…it was the Navy who was ruthlessly killing these Mermaids through some sort of sonar testing.
A few things stuck out to me while watching this show.
- The evidence was so phony that the whole thing appeared to be a hoax. Almost like a Blair Witch Project for the Animal Planet. As it turns out…if you watch the credits…it was a work of fiction. Completely not true.
- People actually believe this to be true! The immediate reaction after the show was incredible. People discussing the “evidence”. All in the context that it appeared to be the real deal.
You know our stance on evolution. If not, or you are new to this blog there are several posts that will refute the “science” of evolution.
The general reaction to mermaids demonstrates how ingrained the falsehood of evolution is in our global society. Much like man made global warming; the science of evolution has been a perpetuated lie to show the world that God does not exist. It is hard to contemplate how far down the rabbit whole the world has gone. However, Mermaids demonstrates just how far down we have gone when millions of people watch it and believe it to be plausible.
But then again maybe there was something else behind it. Maybe the entire point was to reinforce the idea of evolution even when what they were presenting was entirely false. To further reinforce the idea of evolution. To further ingrain it into this generation’s mind that evolution is truth thus perpetuating the notion that God does not exist.
Maybe that was their intention all along.
