View Full Version : Lucy in the sky and without a diamond

Preface note:
I have posted this here rather than in Religion, because I do not support religion, at least not in the common usage of that word; which implies faith, doctrines and rules which people blindly follow.

The nearest to my personal concept of God, being based more on logic than on 'faith', is that of Pantheism. My view is that everything that happens in the Universe ("good " or "bad" ) is the embodiment of the essence of a Mind which we should call God but with minds of our own, we do have some choice in what happens to our very tiny sector of the Universe.

Then I do not deny Evolution exists in some forms but I do not put my faith in Darwinism, which because it supposes so much and makes things up and obviously relies on faith, is a religion itself. So if the Mods want to move this to the Religion forum that's OK but I do feel it does not belong there, as I don't want to needlessly encourage people to use these points to support mistaken religious views.

Lucy, supposed to be such a 'gem' for Darwinian Evolution, turns out to be a matter of faith or even downright fraud. The following are from Creationist websites but my view is that the universe is creating and is in continual creation.


http://www.omniology.com/LUCYSKELETONS1.jpgUsing these comparisons of "lucys" skeletal remains, you can see for yourself how inconsistent and arbitrary the proof for the evolution of man really is, or more accurately, is not. Notice that none of the skull, vertebrae, ribs or arm bone fragments are all exactly the same or the same in number.

You are free to put your "faith" in this metaphysical "patron saint" of human evolution, but that doesn't make it true! The empirical scientific method requires physical and experimental evidence in order to prove or disprove a given theory or hypothesis. This is manufactured, not empirical evidence. Therefore it is not evidence at all! .


In an attempt to further their careers and justify the claims that evolution is a legitimate theory, many scientists have fraudulently deceived the world by planting or reconstructing fossils which they would claim to be authentic finds. The most widely published evolution fraud was committed in China (http://www.nwcreation.net/evolutionfraud.html#anchorArchaeoraptor) in 1999, and published in in the National Geographic
http://www.nwcreation.net/images/Australopithecus_thumb.jpgHuman Ancestral Frauds Piltdown man: Found in a gravel pit in Sussex England in 1912, this fossil was considered by some sources to be the second most important fossil proving the evolution of man—until it was found to be a complete forgery 41 years later. The skull was found to be of modern age. The fragments had been chemically stained to give the appearance of age, and the teeth had been filed down!


Nebraska man: A single tooth, discovered in Nebraska in 1922 grew an entire evolutionary link between man and monkey, until another identical tooth was found which was protruding from the jawbone of a wild pig.

Java man: Initially discovered by Dutchman Eugene Dubois in 1891, all that was found of this claimed originator of humans was a skullcap, three teeth and a femur. The femur was found 50 feet away from the original skullcap a full year later. For almost 30 years Dubois downplayed the Wadjak skulls (two undoubtedly human skulls found very close to his "missing link"). (source: Hank Hanegraaff, The Face That Demonstrates The Farce Of Evolution, [Word Publishing, Nashville, 1998], pp.50-52)

Orce man: Found in the southern Spanish town of Orce in 1982, and hailed as the oldest fossilized human remains ever found in Europe. One year later officials admitted the skull fragment was not human but probably came from a 4 month old donkey. Scientists had said the skull belonged to a 17 year old man who lived 900,000 to 1.6 million years ago, and even had very detail drawings done to represent what he would have looked like. (source: "Skull fragment may not be human", Knoxville News-Sentinel, 1983)

Neanderthal: Still synonymous with brutishness, the first Neanderthal remains were found in France in 1908. Considered to be ignorant, ape-like, stooped and knuckle-dragging, much of the evidence now suggests that Neanderthal was just as human as us, and his stooped appearance was because of arthritis and rickets. Neanderthals are now recognized as skilled hunters, believers in an after-life, and even skilled surgeons, as seen in one skeleton whose withered right arm had been amputated above the elbow. (source: "Upgrading Neanderthal Man", Time Magazine, May 17, 1971, Vol. 97, No. 20)

http://www.nwcreation.net/images/Australopithecus_thumb.jpgOntogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny? Haekel’s faked embryonic drawings


The theory of embryonic recapitulation asserts that the human fetus goes through various stages of its evolutionary history as it develops. Ernst Haeckel proposed this theory in the late 1860’s, promoting Darwin’s theory of evolution in Germany. He made detailed drawings of the embryonic development of eight different embryos in three stages of development, to bolster his claim. His work was hailed as a great development in the understanding of human evolution. A few years later his drawings were shown to have been fabricated, and the data manufactured. He blamed the artist for the discrepancies, without admitting that he was the artist. (source: Russell Grigg, "Fraud Rediscovered", Creation, Vol. 20, No. 2, pp.49-51)

Archaeoraptor Liaoningensis: Fake Dinosaur-bird ancestor The most recent and perhaps the most infamous evolution frauds was committed in China and published in 1999 in the journal National Geographic 196:98-107, November 1999. Dinosaur bones were put together with the bones of a newer species of bird and they tried to pass it off as a very important new evolutionary intermediate.

http://www.nwcreation.net/images/Australopithecus_thumb.jpgMiscellaneous Fakes and Frauds Brontosaurus: One of the best known dinosaurs in books and museums for the past hundred years, brontosaurus never really existed. The dinosaur’s skeleton was found with the head missing. To complete it, a skull found three or four miles away was added. No one knew this for years. The body actually belonged to a species of Diplodocus and the head was from an Apatosaurus. (source: Paul S.
