The Watchtower claims that all humans were created directly by God and his son and evolution never happened. On the other hand
Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? (1985) Watchtower Bible & Tract Society, Chap. 20 p. 248 par. 6:
"We need to face the fact that the theory of evolution serves the purposes of Satan. He wants people to imitate his course, and that of Adam and Eve, in rebelling against God. This is especially so now, since the Devil has only “a short period of time” left. (Revelation 12:9-12) Thus, believing in evolution would mean promoting his interests and blinding oneself to the wonderful purposes of the Creator. How, then, should we feel about this? We feel indignant toward those who try to defraud us of money, or even of a few material possessions. We should feel even stronger indignation toward the doctrine of evolution and its originator, since the intent is to defraud us of eternal life.—1 Peter 5:8."
Awake !, Watchtower Bible & Tract Society, June 22nd, 1998 p. 8:
"Evolution teaches that a series of changes gradually fashioned us into a higher form of animal. On the other hand, the Bible says that we started off perfect, in God’s image, but that shortly thereafter, imperfection was introduced and mankind began a long downhill ride."
Despite the Watchtower lies, the scientific evidence supporting biological evolution continues to grow at a rapid pace. Biological evolution explains the origin and history of our species.
The Watchtower says that there are missing links in fossils and that it’s the
only proof we need for creationism. However
Common structures and behaviors often demonstrate that species come from similar ancestors. For example, since the discovery of genetic tools to determine DNA, scientists discovered that the common ancestor of humans and chimpanzees was a species estimated to have lived 6 to 7 million years ago(latest studies say up to maybe 13 million years ago). Thus, humans are not descended from chimpanzees or from any other ape living today but from a species that no longer exists.
The Watchtower claims that the method of dating fossils by radiometric dating is imprecise. Who do they take themselves for? Do they know more than science? Radiometric dating is the product of more than a century of ingenious research and represents one of the most well-substantiated achievements of modern science.
