Many believe John Lennon described the hallucinative LSD experience in his popular song on the Sgt. Pepper album because Mr. Lennon’s son Julian inspired the idea with his nursery school drawing Julian titled, “Lucy—in the sky with diamonds,” with images of tangerine trees, marmalade skies, and his nursery school admirer, Lucy, the girl with kaleidoscope eyes. John Lennon denied the connection to LSD, however we know poet-Lennon was capable of capitalizing on metaphors and double meanings in the 1960’s hippie and drug generation as we believe he did with L(ucy), S(kies), and D(iamonds). This is especially true since LSD is a drug capable of transporting one to a world of tangerine trees and newspaper taxis, where you live with your head in the clouds. Lucy Vodden, Julian’s nursery-school classmate, passed away in 2009 at the age of 46 but today her namesake, Lucy the “man-ape,” celebrates her 41st birthday.
Today is the 41st birthday of the discovery of missing-link Lucy evolutionists claim as the human race’s nearest monkey-kin and today Google proudly celebrates her birthday with its search page ape-to-man animation. But like Lucy with kaleidoscope eyes, Lucy the “man-ape” may also be a hallucination. The paleontologist who discovered Lucy confirms the bones unearthed in Ethiopia in 1974 were not a snapshot of a monkey-man, but simply the skeleton of a common African Chimpanzee. In the March 1996 issue of National Geographic, Dr. Johanson, the founder of Lucy, himself admitted: “Lucy has recently been dethroned.” He explained how over-enthusiastic scientists can show bias by researching with their heads in the clouds.
Mankind continues to make the same mistake. We discover a truth and attempt to stretch it to a ridiculous end. Yes, Darwin did confirm the truth of small-change (micro) evolution within birds where their beaks and feathers changed in shape and color, but here’s where we make our mistake: Because micro-evolution can make changes within something, doesn’t prove macro-evolution creates life from nothing. Evolutionists’ theory, “Given enough time anyone can win the Lotto by chance and human life can evolve itself by chance,” is like believing a tornado tearing through a junkyard could create a 747, given enough time. Who do you think is hallucinating?
In an interesting historical note, Dr. Johanson named the ape, Lucy, because the night he unearthed her in a sand pit in Ethiopia, the song, “Lucy in the Skies with Diamonds,” was playing all night in the archaeological camp. In an ironic note, society usually accuses bible and God-believers as lacking minds, reason, and science, yet Lucy, whose scientist founder already announced as a farce, and Lucy who is purely the bones of an ape with no human connection, is still hailed proof of evolution by Google-types even though Dr. Johanson pronounced her dead almost “20 years ago today.” Maybe the church exhibits the mind of reason and Google and its evolutionary sympathizers are taking the hallucinative drug of macro-evolution by imagining the girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
