Up in Arms - Over Arm Evolution
by Thomas F. Heinze
Evolutionists looked at ape’s arms and compared them to people’s arms. They noticed that the apes’ arms were similar to people’s arms but, in proportion to the body were longer and stronger.
Because they believed the standard evolutionary explanation that people evolved from ape-like ancestors, they listed people at the very top of the evolutionary tree; above apes, in spite of the fact that Apes’ arms were longer and stronger than people’s arms!
The evolution conclusion: People are at the very top of the evolutionary ladder, so we evolved from apes, not them from us! The theory of evolution rules! Don’t let the evidence disarm you!

What’s more, people are easily offended, and would not stand for any inference that apes might be more evolved than us. Apes, on the other hand, won’t complain no matter how we insult them!
But what if evolution is a false theory and neither apes nor people came about by evolution? What if God created people and animals?

"Did you hear what they said about us?!"

Look at DNA! It’s important to the subject of arms. It is the part of every cell that contains the plans. If DNA did not exist, or the plan for arms had not been written in it, neither people nor apes would have arms. Plans for arms are very complex and don’t just pop up out of nowhere. Where did DNA come from, and who wrote the plans that it contains?

This is easy to answer if you believe God created people, apes, and DNA. It’s hard or impossible to answer for atheists and many other evolutionists. They try to solve nearly every problem about where things came from with “mutations,” random changes  to DNA. But since God made the plans in DNA so that they work, random changes cause more damage than progress. Mutations are random changes, a bit like driving your car into a tree. Your car will be changed, but hitting the tree will never invent the first fender or bumper, let alone the first complete automobile or arm, even if you drive around a lot and  run into every tree in the neighborhood.
We agree that random mutations can cause changes to DNA plans, but they can’t invent either DNA, or the plans it contains. If the plans were already in DNA, random mutations might change them to make arms longer, shorter, or unusable, but random changes can’t invent an arm nor connect it onto your shoulder so you can use it. Atheists will find this statement disgusting, but  impossible to refute: Arms were not formed by damage to DNA.
So where did arms come from? Atheists and other evolutionists have no reasonable answers. That is why they chose random mutations! Bad choice! Random mutations can change DNA plans but random mutations can’t plan because they are random! Arms give strong evidence of having been planned by our intelligent  Creator. The evidence does not indicate that they were slapped together by random movements of atoms, molecules, cells or whatever.
Evolutionists can’t explain the origin of DNA! I have asked them. The plans that God wrote in DNA work. Random changes to those plans cause more damage than progress. Mutations are an irrational, failed explanation for the origin of arms!
I have a lot of email friends who are atheists and evolutionists.
Hey friends! Before you come down too hard on me for insisting that God created arms, try to find a better explanation! Adding natural selection to random mutations will not by some evolutionary magic make an irrational explanation intelligent! Evolution claims that natural selection chose the best random changes to the plan in DNA. But if there were no DNA, or no plan for arms in DNA, random changes would never make either DNA or arms. There is no way that selecting the best random changes to no plan at all could make arms!
Hey atheist friends! Sorry to throw cold water on your faith in random mutations, but if there were no arms, not even a million atheists praying for a million years could get anything random to create arms.
Forewarned is forearmed!
