ICR's New In-Depth Science Book: Chimps and Humans
by Staff Writer | Oct. 21, 2021
Evolutionists frequently claim that human and chimp DNA are over 98% similar. They need this percentage to support their hypothesis that humans and chimps shared a common ancestor three to six million years ago. Based on known mutation rates, anything significantly less than a 98.5% similarity would destroy the entire theory.
But the more that DNA sequencing technologies improve, the worse it gets for the evolutionary paradigm. With a background in the field of genetics and genomics, Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins analyzes the data and discovers that secular scientists consistently tailor their research to fit the evolutionary narrative. He presents his own research demonstrating that instead of a 98+% similarity, human-chimp genome matches are about 84%—results that secular scientists are beginning to echo.
In Chimps and Humans: A Geneticist Discovers DNA Evidence That Challenges Evolution, Dr. Tomkins dismantles evolutionary assertions of a close human-chimp relationship and shows that not only are the human and chimp genomes not almost identical, they are too far apart to make a common evolutionary ancestor even remotely plausible. Christians have every reason to believe the Genesis assertion that God uniquely created humans in His own image around 6,000 years ago.
Dr. John C. Sanford, retired Cornell University geneticist says this,
Dr. Tomkins has carefully investigated all of the various arguments supporting ape-to-man evolution. On every level, he has discovered that the supposedly compelling evolutionary arguments for ape-to-man evolution do not withstand careful scrutiny....In every case, whenever Dr. Tomkins has dug deep he has been able to overthrow the claims of evolutionists.

Fossil Chromatin Looks YoungWhat are the odds that a buried animal would still have intact DNA after 125 million years? Researchers publishing in the journal Communications Biology said exactly that.1 But it’s what they elected not to say that tells just as big a story.
The cartilage-containing fossil named Caudipteryx came from China’s famous Jehol Biota.More...

Two-Volume Series: Restoring the Truth about OriginsThe subject of origins continues to attract interest from the public and the scientific establishment. Understanding our origins informs us of who we are in the greater scheme of things: beloved creatures or cosmic accidents.
The stakes are high. Our understanding of who and what we are forms the basis for all our philosophies, morals, laws, politics, economics, and worldviews.More...
Saturn’s Moons Continue to Challenge Secular TheoristsA recent article in Sky & Telescope magazine explains why secular theorists have difficulty agreeing on the ages of Saturn’s moons.1 In the process, the article provides a reminder that Saturn’s rings are young. It also presents possible evidence that some of Saturn’s moons are also young.More...
