After more than two decades of drilling in Antarctica, the Russian researchers reached an ancient lake on Sunday, February 12th, at a depth of 3,769 meters (12,366 ft), in a location about 800 miles (1,300 kilometers) east of the South Pole. Reaching the surface the, named Lake Vostok, the largest of nearly 400 sub glacial lakes in Antarctica, was a major discovery avidly anticipated by scientists around the world. The lake is expected to hold living organisms that have been locked in icy darkness for some 20 million years, as well as clues to the search for life elsewhere in the solar system.
Having said that, it brings certain thoughts to mind. Suppose, during the Winter in Antarctica, some living organism makes it way to the surface, while there are sparse researchers in the area? After being supposedly isolated in deep darkness, a creature might try to venture out to explore new territory.
But what this writer is expecting is something that science might try to hide from the public, namely evidence of human habitation, dating back more than 18 million years. What would that do to the “god” of Atheism, which is the evolution theory?
What happens to the science textbooks, when it is proven that the theory is wrong?
But what it would prove is the truth of Genesis, namely the “Observations of Moses”.
The correct reading of the Genesis text declares that mankind has been on this Earth, in his present likeness, for over 60 million years. So it is predicted that evidence of ancient mankind would somewhere be found. So why not in an largely unexplored area, such as Antarctica?
What happens to evolution theory then? Is it thrown out?
Or just an embarrassing “back to the drawing board”?
