DARWIN'S ENIGMA (The Enigma that Darwin could not Solve)
Alfred Wallace the co-discoverer of Natural Selection wrote:
"Man's Naked Skin could not have been produced by Natural Selection. It seems to me, then, to be absolutely certain, that 'Natural Selection' could not have produced man's hairless body by the accumulation of variations from a hairy ancestor. The evidence all goes to show that such variations could not have been useful, but must, on the contrary, have been to some extent hurtful."
Darwin and Wallace argued about the issue of human hairless for a number of years but in the end Darwin conceded that Wallace had been right. Darwin wrote in his book "The Descent of Man" published in 1871 an acknowledgement to Wallace's arguments.
"The loss of hair is an inconvenience and probably an injury to man, even in a hot climate, for he is thus exposed to the scorching of the sun, and to sudden chills, especially during wet weather. As Mr. Wallace remarks, the natives in all countries are glad to protect their naked backs and shoulders with some slight covering. No one supposes that the nakedness of the skin is any direct advantage to man; his body therefore cannot have been divested of hair through natural selection. Nor, as shown in a former chapter, have we any evidence that this can be due to the direct action of climate, or that it is the result of correlated development."
This issue of human hairlessness skin was to become a riddle that Darwin would never resolve. It is true that he did submit another theory which he called sexual selection which he believed resolved the problem, but the theory was not accepted in his day as a solution, and it has since been discredited as a result of a series of rigorous science testing in recent years. No other evolutionist since has been able to resolve Darwin's Enigma, although it has not been for the want of trying.
It is the objective of this book to take an honest look at all the theories proposed by Darwin and those who followed him to see if there is indeed a solution through a naturalist mechanism that could account for the anomaly of man's almost hairless condition. But if there is no solution that can be found, then we will have to face one unavoidable conclusion. Man did not evolve from a hairy ape-like ancestor as is claimed by evolutionists but had in fact been created naked and hairless through the activities of Intelligent agency. Isn't that what the book of Genesis said?
The reason why God made us naked was because of our body's symbiosis relationship with the Sun for health and vitality. Your body MUST HAVE vitamin D3 to absorb calcium and promote bone growth. Too little vitamin D3 results in soft bones in children (rickets) and fragile, misshapen bones in adults (osteomalacia). You also need vitamin D for other important body functions. New research has shown many other reasons why this vitamin is so important for our health. Studies show that vitamin D plays a key role in boosting the immune system.
Dr. Joe Prendergast explains that vitamin D3 is likely more powerful than any vaccine you could take, as German researchers have found it increases your immune system by a factor of 3 to 5. Vitamin D3 is a steroid hormone -- not a vitamin -- that influences virtually every cell in your body, and is easily one of nature's most potent cancer fighters. Vitamin D3 influences nearly 3,000 of your genes, and it plays a major role in your immune response, including helping your body produce over 200 antimicrobial peptides that help fight all sorts of infections.
The is no doubt now that vitamin D3 is our best defense against any disease is a robust immune system, which vaccines can compromise; supporting your immune system should always be at the top of your list, and optimizing your vitamin D levels is one crucial component of this. Guess what? Most of the body’s vitamin D supply - between 75-90% - is generated by the skin’s exposure to UVB rays. This prompts the body to turn a form of cholesterol (dehydrocholesterol) in the upper layers of the skin to previtamin D3, which is rapidly converted to vitamin D3.
The fastest way of getting the vitamin D3 is to sunbathe naked lying down. A light-skinned adult human will synthesise 5,000 IU of vitamin D in 5 minutes of naked sunbathing at midday on the equator. Five minutes per day is all this person needs to get his/her optimal daily supply. In a little over half an hour, they'll get their entire week's optimal health allowance (assuming they get no vitamin D from their food, which is unlikely). Your body can synthesise over 20,000 IU of vitamin D per day, provided you are not deficient in magnesium, which is required for the process.
There is, in fact, research on over 200 diseases that have been linked to vitamin D deficiency, and which may respond to vitamin D supplementation – or better yet, sunlight-induced vitamin D production in the skin. We were created naked for a reason and it only recently that we know why. One thing is for certain. Evolution and its process of natural selection cannot account for our near naked skin and my book proves that this to be true.
