There is no
fossil evidence to support the "ape-man" image, which is unceasingly
promulgated by the media and evolutionist academic circles. With brushes in
their hands, evolutionists produce imaginary creatures, nevertheless, the fact
that these drawings correspond to no matching fossils constitutes a serious
problem for them. Despite the fact that no complete "transitional form"
fossil has ever been found, the theory of evolution is taught more than
ever in classrooms around the world. We keep finding more and more huge
burial sites of dinosaurs, which are supposedly 65 million years old, yet we
cannot find a single skeleton of a half man, half ape, pre-human being.
Such fossils should stand a much better chance of being preserved, since they
would only be maybe tens of thousands of years old, not millions as with the
dinosaurs (in the evolutionist's timeline). Now why do you suppose this is? Maybe simply because
evolution never happened? If evolution were true, we would find at least
thousands of skeletons of the "transitional" skeletons shown in the evolutionist
drawing below. Now if I were a believer in evolution, I would need to
seriously question my faith in the absence of any such skeletons.
But since there aren't any such skeletons, one of the interesting methods evolutionists employ to overcome this
problem is to "produce" the fossils they cannot find.
Evolutionists present much of their finds as if they were
compelling and factual explanations to human evolution. In fact, they base their
conclusions on mere speculation and often the flimsiest of 'finds'. Many
discoveries of supposed hominids consist of only a mouth fragment, a leg bone, a
hip bone, or a knee joint. On this alone, they have considered it to be a
hominid. They even name it, reconstruct what it looked like, and present it to
the public as a fact. Some of these finds have turned out to be those of a pig,
donkey, or the result of a hoax.
Piltdown Man, which may be
the biggest scandal in the history of science, is a typical example of this
In 1912, a well-known doctor and amateur paleoanthropologist
named Charles Dawson came out with the assertion that he had found a jawbone and
a cranial fragment in a pit in Piltdown, England. Even though the jawbone was
more ape-like, the teeth and the skull were like a man's. These specimens were
labelled the "Piltdown man". Alleged to be 500,000 years old, they were
displayed as an absolute proof of human evolution in several museums. For more
than 40 years, many scientific articles were written on "Piltdown man", many
interpretations and drawings were made, and the fossil was presented as
important evidence for human evolution. No fewer than 500 doctoral theses were
written on the subject. While visiting the British Museum in 1921, leading
American paleoanthropologist Henry Fairfield Osborn said "We have to be reminded
over and over again that Nature is full of paradoxes" and proclaimed Piltdown "a
discovery of transcendent importance to the prehistory of man.
In 1949, Kenneth Oakley from the British Museum's Paleontology
Department, attempted to use "fluorine testing", a new test used for determining
the date of fossils. A trial was made on the fossil of the Piltdown man. The
result was astonishing. During the test, it was realised that the jawbone of
Piltdown Man did not contain any fluorine. This indicated that it had remained
buried no more than a few years. The skull, which contained only a small amount
of fluorine, showed that it was not older than a few thousand years old.
It was determined that the teeth in the jawbone
belonging to an orangutan, had been worn down artificially and that the
"primitive" tools discovered with the fossils were simple imitations
that had been sharpened with steel implements.65 In the detailed
analysis completed by Joseph Weiner, this forgery was revealed to the
public in 1953. The skull belonged to a 500-year-old man, and the jaw
bone belonged to a recently deceased ape! The teeth had been specially
arranged in a particular way and added to the jaw, and the molar
surfaces were filed in order to resemble those of a man. Then all these
pieces were stained with potassium dichromate to give them an old
appearance. These stains began to disappear when dipped in acid. Sir
Wilfred Le Gros Clark, who was in the team that uncovered the forgery,
could not hide his astonishment at this situation and said: "The
evidences of artificial abrasion immediately sprang to the eye. Indeed
so obvious did they seem it may well be asked-how was it that they had
escaped notice before?"66 In the wake of all this, "Piltdown man" was
hurriedly removed from the British Museum where it had been displayed
for more than 40 years.
In 1922, Henry Fairfield Osborn, the director of the American
Museum of Natural History, declared that he had found a fossil molar tooth
belonging to the Pliocene period in western Nebraska near Snake Brook. This
tooth allegedly bore common characteristics of both man and ape. An extensive
scientific debate began surrounding this fossil, which came to be called
"Nebraska man", in which some interpreted this tooth as belonging to
Pithecanthropus erectus, while others claimed it was closer to human beings.
Nebraska man was also immediately given a "scientific name", Hesperopithecus
Many authorities gave Osborn their support. Based on this
single tooth, reconstructions of the Nebraska man's head and body were drawn.
Moreover, Nebraska man was even pictured along with his wife and children, as a
whole family in a natural setting.
All of these scenarios were developed from just one tooth.
Evolutionist circles placed such faith in this "ghost man" that when a
researcher named William Bryan opposed these biased conclusions relying on a
single tooth, he was harshly criticised.
In 1927, other parts of the skeleton were also found.
According to these newly discovered pieces, the tooth belonged neither to a man
nor to an ape. It was realised that it belonged to an extinct species of wild
American pig called Prosthennops. William Gregory entitled the article published
in Science in which he announced the truth, "Hesperopithecus: Apparently Not an
ape Nor a man. Then all the drawings of Hesperopithecus haroldcooki and his
"family" were hurriedly removed from evolutionary literature.
After Darwin advanced the claim with his book The Descent of
Man that man evolved from ape-like living beings, he started to seek fossils to
support this contention. However, some evolutionists believed that "half-man
half-ape" creatures were to be found not only in the fossil record, but also
alive in various parts of the world. In the early 20th century, these pursuits
for "living transitional links" led to unfortunate incidents, one of the
cruellest of which is the story of a Pygmy by the name of Ota Benga.
Ota Benga was captured in 1904 by an evolutionist researcher
in the Congo. In his own tongue, his name meant "friend". He had a wife and two
children. Chained and caged like an animal, he was taken to the USA where
evolutionist scientists displayed him to the public in the St Louis World Fair
along with other ape species and introduced him as "the closest transitional
link to man". Two years later, they took him to the Bronx Zoo in New York and
there they exhibited him under the denomination of "ancient ancestors of man"
along with a few chimpanzees, a gorilla named Dinah, and an orang-utan called
Dohung. Dr William T. Hornaday, the zoo's evolutionist director gave long
speeches on how proud he was to have this exceptional "transitional form" in his
zoo and treated caged Ota Benga as if he were an ordinary animal. Unable to bear
the treatment he was subjected to, Ota Benga eventually committed suicide.68
Piltdown Man, Nebraska Man, Ota Benga... These scandals demonstrate that
evolutionist scientists do not hesitate to employ any kind of unscientific
method to prove their theory. Bearing this point in mind, when we look at the
other so-called evidence of the "human evolution" myth, we confront a similar
situation. Here there are a fictional story and an army of volunteers ready to
try everything to verify this story.
Java Man - Pekin Man
Fossils discovered on the islands of Java in 1891 and 1892
were given the name Java Man (Pithecanthropus erectus). Fossils discovered near
Peking (Beijing) in 1923-1927 were given the name Pekin Man (Sinanthropus pekinensis). In
1939, however, two experts, Ralph von Koenigswald and Franz Weidenreich,
revealed that both were actually normal human beings. And Ernst Mayr from
Harvard University had classified both as human in 1944.
After the first specimens were discovered in the
Neander Valley in 1856, evolutionists suggested that Neanderthals were
primitive ape-men. Subsequent archaeological discoveries, however,
revealed that there was no scientific basis to that claim. Erik
Trinkhaus, an expert on the subject of the Neanderthals and also an
evolutionist, has admitted that, “Detailed comparisons of Neanderthal
skeletal remains with those of modern humans have shown that there is
nothing in Neanderthal anatomy that conclusively indicates locomotor,
manipulative, intellectual, or linguistic abilities inferior to those of
In addition, the size of the Neanderthal Man skull—200
cubic centimeters greater than that of present-day humans—reveals the
invalidity of the claim that it was an intermediate form between humans
The Taung Child
A fossil skull discovered by Raymond Dart in South Africa in
1924 was initially depicted as a supposed ancestor of man. However, contemporary
evolutionists can no longer maintain that it represents such an ancestor—because
it subsequently transpired that the skull belonged to a young gorilla! The
famous anatomist Bernard Wood stated that this fossil constitutes no evidence in
favor of evolution in an article published in New Scientist magazine.
A partial jawbone, consisting of two parts, was
discovered by G.E. Lewis in India in the 1930s. Based on these two jaw
bone fragments, claimed to be 14 million years old, evolutionists
reconstructed Ramapithecus’s family and supposed natural habitat. For fifty years, the fossil was portrayed as an ancestor of Man
but following the results of a 1981 anatomical comparison with a baboon
skeleton, evolutionists were forced to quietly set it aside.
Australopithecines are a group of extinct apes closely related to modern
chimpanzees and orangutans. Although many evolutionists use the remains of these
extinct apes to try to prove human evolution, the weight of scientific evidence
indicates clearly that australopithecines, such as Ardipithecus (ARDI) and
Australopithecus Afarensis (LUCY), were only primeval apes and
not the evolutionary ancestors of humankind.
|This fossil, discovered in Africa in 1974, was widely esteemed
by evolutionists and was the subject of some of the most intensive speculation.
Recently however, it has been revealed that Lucy (A. afarensis) had an anatomy
ideally suited to climbing trees and was no different from other apes we are
familiar with. The French scientific journal Science et Vie covered the story in
1999 under the headline “Adieu, Lucy.” One study, performed in 2000, discovered
a locking system in Lucy’s forearms enabling it to walk using the knuckles, in
the same way as modern-day chimps.
In a recent study, Tel Aviv University anthropologists
determined that Lucy’s lower jaw bone is some kind of gorilla jaw bone.
Other parts of the skeleton are just like the bones of knuckle-dragging,
tree-climbing gorillas. Yet Lucy has been Evolutionism's poster child.
Very creatively designed sculptures of Lucy appear in tax-funded
museums, and these sculptures are hoaxes, not following the obvious
ape-like bone structures, but rather dishonestly presenting Lucy as if
she had human-like bone structures. This is typical Evolutionary flim-flam.
Evolutionists fool themselves first because of their confirmation bias.
Everything looks like part of the evolutionary dream, because or
As a result, the evolutionary researchers concluded that
Lucy should no longer be considered man’s direct ancestor. As is
typically the case in the field of human evolution, a single bone
structure overturns years of grossly exaggerated claims. In the face of all these findings, many
evolutionist experts declared that Lucy could not have been a forerunner of man.

The fragmentary nature of most
specimens means that
reconstructions often have to
be largely speculative, i.e. guesswork, leaving free reign for
Ardi specimen is just another example of fragmentary evidence that's based on
reconstructions wishful-thinking, hyperbole, and science-fiction without a
demonstrative mechanism of mutational advance all the while ignoring
evolution's splintered family tree and biological-genetic boundaries. Due to
lack of phylogeny, evolutionists continue to make frantic attempts to
justify their failing hypothesis by submitting random press releases with
imaginative fraudulent sketches of "alleged" primate to human links and
links between other completely different organisms to an unsuspecting
public. With their own imagination and a few disconnected scattered bone
fragments, evolutionists expect the public to believe that these
archaeologists understand how this creature walked (straight legged), what
its diet consisted of (without evidence), how such great changes "must have
happened" toward the development of humans and chimpanzees while other
animal species that existed in Ardi's day are still alive today with little
to no change. No wonder the mass public around the world laughs at
Evolutionists and really do not take them seriously anymore.
|These are the actual Ardi bones found.
"The research team have suggested
that even if Ardi is not on the direct evolutionary line in terms of
human origins, the fossilized skeleton will definitely yield new
insights into the evolution of the earliest ancestors of mankind and
how we evolved from the common ancestor we share with chimps,
bonobos, gorillas and other higher primates."

isn't a human ancestor, but we're exited anyway because we believe
Folks, these are just the bones of an extinct ape/chimp.
Don't let Darwinists make a monkey out of you!
