Darwin's Point and Non-Evolution

To fundamentalist evolutionists, practically everything seen in nature is evidence supporting their belief system. By using presuppositions and circular reasoning, they present some risible items that are later dismissed. One of these is the allegedly vestigial "Darwin's tubercle" (or "Darwin's point").

Some fundamentalist evolutionists believe that a certain bump on some ears is a vestigial trait and evidence of evolution. This is easily dismissed.

This bump on the ear was alleged by the Bearded Buddha to have been functional to our simian ancestors, and our supposed animal cousins still have it because evolution. Problems were seen with this from the get-go, but if a just-so story supports Darwin's fantasy, it must be science. Right? Perpetuators of evoporn still believe this nonsensical story.


It's not just a bump on the curve of the ear, but also related to pointed ears. Some people have these things, some do not. Some apes have these things, some do not. There was no valid reason to even begin to present it as something scientific, let alone as evidence for evolution. To do so smacks of both desperation and mendacity. Much ado about a bump, but the intricacy of the ear itself is ignored. These owlhoots need to cowboy up and admit that they are using the scientific principle of Making Things Up™ to deny our Creator.
Darwin’s Point, also known as ‘Darwin’s Tubercle’ or ‘Darwin’s Bump’, is a very small outer ear trait used by Darwin in an attempt to prove evolution. It consists of a slightly pointed thickening of the cartilage on the posterior helix at the junction of the upper and middle thirds of the external ear lobe called the auricle. . . .1 It is often called ‘Darwin’s Point’ because the idea was first published by Charles Darwin in The Descent of Man as a vestigial feature. . . 

In his 1871 book on human evolution, Darwin wrote about “a little blunt point, projecting from the inwardly folded margin, or helix” which is the outer ridge of the ear lobe. Darwin invested a full page and a half on this topic, as well as one of the few illustrations in the 1879 edition of his book. He commented that some readers might conclude that this “trifling” trait is not worth our notice, but responded to this claim with: “Every character, however slight, must be the result of some definite cause”. . .
