For years we’ve heard evolutionists give their doomsday predictions of the eventual extinction of human men, leaving a race of just women. They’ve based their Nostradamus like prophecies on the supposed reduction in the size of the Y chromosome over millions of years of evolution.
Their theory of male extinction rests on the concept of the process of recombination that occurs when the cells undergo division. The human cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, each having a complimentary pair or partner. During cell division, each pair of chromosomes comes in contact with each and exchanges some of their genes. This process known as recombination helps the chromosomes to repair mistakes and maintain chromosome integrity.
However, the Y chromosome, also known as the male chromosome does not have complimentary partner with which to recombine with. Supposedly, this has caused the Y chromosome to be incapable of repairing itself over the 200 million to 300 million years of human evolution. The result, according to evolutionists is that the Y chromosome of today’s men only contains about 3% of the original genes. Hence, the male members of the human race will eventually run out of genes in the next few thousand to several million years, leaving the fate of the human race to women.
In an effort to determine just how far the y chromosome has degenerated, Jennifer Hughes from the Whitehead Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, examined the Y chromosome of the rhesus macaque monkey. She claims that humans and rhesus macaques split apart from each other 25 million years ago. Hughes pointed out that previous comparisons were made between the Y chromosome of humans and chimpanzees who only split apart a mere 6 million years ago.
After comparing the human and rhesus macaque Y chromosomes, Hughes reported that they were quite similar and that the rate of decay had been exaggerated. In fact, she says the Y chromosome really hasn’t changed at all in the last 25 million years and that the chromosome seems fairly stable. So based on a comparison of human and macaque Y chromosomes, men will continue to remain on earth for a far greater time than evolutionists once believed.
And once again we learn that the belief in the religion of evolution has caused countless people to accept the doom of men. Millions of dollars and thousands of man hours have been wasted on studies that mean absolutely nothing.
Had they started with $35 to buy a Bible and taken only a few minutes to read the first 11 chapters of Genesis, they would have known that man was created in God’s image just 6,000 years ago and that the only split between man, monkey and chimp occurred about 4350 years ago when Noah’s Ark landed. Once the dry ground appeared, Noah, his family and all of the animals disembarked and went out to repopulate the earth. And if they read on through to the end of the Bible, they would have known that men and women would be here until the end of the earth, which only God knows when that will be.
Psalm 127 says that God gives us children as a reward, not just because He loves us and we want them for ourselves, but because He is equipping us to do what He has called us to do as His warriors: build and guard. Build the house of God and guard the city that has foundations in the very midst of His enemies. This psalm tells us, so beautifully, how that will happen: by filling the earth with offspring—children—who have been brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and who themselves have caught the vision to reestablish the righteous rule of God on the earth. They will in turn produce offspring who have the vision as well, and on and on until the knowledge of the glory of the Lord covers the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).
The picture the psalmist uses is that children are “like arrows in the hand of a warrior.” What does this mean? It means that our children are the primary weapons God has given us to do what He has asked us to do—to build and to guard. But they obviously are not ready for that task when they come out of the womb. In other words, if we are to build and guard successfully in the world, we must first build and guard in the lives of our children! Hence the task of parenting; we are preparing our weapons of war for battle! We have been given 20 or so years to accomplish the task of extending our influence for the kingdom of God into the next generation.
So, successful parenting is ultimately not to make us, as parents, look good to the other families in our church, to make life easier for us, or even to prepare our children to grow up and be successful. No, children are ultimately for God and His purpose of extending his righteous rule over the whole earth as His Son Jesus Christ becomes in experience what He is in fact—King of all kings and Lord of all lords.
The Family, God’s Weapon for Victory is an encyclopedia of information about how to move your family toward being what the title declares, including a theology of family, the husband-wife relationship and training children from birth to marriage. Filled with illustrations from the author’s own life, including his myriad failures, the book is a fascinating read.
