A study undertaken to help with abnormal brain development in premature babies has revealed evolution’s imprint on the human brain. Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that the human brain regions that grow the most during infancy and childhood are nearly identical to the brain regions with the most changes when human brains are compared to those of apes and monkeys.

We are once again visiting the hilarious slide-deck passed off as science from last week’s Fox News’ “Eyepoppers: Best Science Photos of the Week.” All we are given once again, is an artistic representation and a caption:
“A study undertaken to help with abnormal brain development in premature babies has revealed evolution’s imprint on the human brain. Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that the human brain regions that grow the most during infancy and childhood are nearly identical to the brain regions with the most changes when human brains are compared to those of apes and monkeys.”
1.) The slide and caption conflict.
The first observation worth noting is the fact that according to this slide and caption, evolution has been confirmed based on the discovery of similarity in growth regions of the brains of humans and apes during development. However, a second glance at the slide reveals that those two brain’s color scheme’s do not overlap in a single place, not even as distributions along the color’s perimeters. Therefore, if one of these brains is supposed to be human and the other is supposed to be ape, I fail to recognize the correlation. In other words, the slide is proving the opposite of the caption since no region is similar in color.
2.) What on earth does growth regions in the brain during childhood have to do with pre-mature abnormal brain development?
3.) The Relationship Scam False Premise
If you think similarity proves an evolutionary relationship, let me show you some research I’ve been doing.
I discovered in my research that clouds are 100% water.
Watermelons are 97% water — only 3% difference.
That proves watermelons evolved from clouds.
Anyone can pick an item to compare. Is that supposed to prove relationship?
Did you know that human protein Cytochrome c is closest to a sunflower? So, really the sunflowers are our closest relatives.
If you want to compare the eyes, we are closest to an octopus. Not a chimpanzee.
Human blood specific gravity is closest to a rabbit or a pig.
Human milk is closest to a donkey.
It all depends on what you want to compare.
Battleships and forks are both made of iron. It doesn’t prove they both evolved from a tin can.
If there were not some similarities between us and other animals we could only eat each other. So God designed all animals from the same code so that, for instance, we could eat other plants and animals and digest them.
Same Designer, that’s what it proves!
“Modern apes … seem to have sprung out of nowhere. They have no yesterday, no fossil record. And the true origin of modern humans … is, if we are to be honest with ourselves, an equally mysterious matter.”
