“MISSING LINK” FOUND: New Fossil Links Humans, Lemurs?
May 19, 2009

Meet “Ida,” the small “missing link” found in Germany that’s created a big media splash and will likely continue to make waves among those who study human origins.

Ida: the Missing Link at Last?
May 19, 2009

For all the headlines and proclamations, this “missing link” story includes an amazing amount of hot air.


Even Darwinists doubt latest ‘missing link’

June 3, 2009 by Pete Chagnon

A spokesman for the Discovery Institute says the alleged “missing link” find is nothing new.

missing link bigDiscovery Institute senior fellow John West says the recent fossil hailed as the missing link between humans and primates is nothing more than “hype.” The fossil known as “Ida” was recently unveiled during a press conference in conjunction with a book, website, and a documentary that aired on The History Channel.

“And it’s interesting if you actually look, many evolutionists themselves are saying that this was just hype,” he contends. “Because in fact, evolutionists themselves cannot agree on what this is supposed to be a missing link to.”

Fossils: Fact or Fallacy?
science, evolution, creation, fossils

December 16, 2008, by Sean McDowell

While the fact of ape-to-human evolution is not as simple as she made it out to be, she was right about one thing: fossil reconstructions of ape-like creatures fill museums throughout the world (they also fill your biology textbooks). The idea that ape-like creatures morphed into upright walking humans is one of the most common examples given to support evolution. Yet despite the popularity of the ape-to-human story, the evidence is not as straightforward as it appears. Let’s consider three key problems with the evidence for ape-to-human evolution.

One problem with common knowledge is that once the myth is propagated it is extremely difficult to correct. The news story below describes “Lucy” as a human ancestor with many ape-like features, rather than actually an ape. Upon closer inspection it seems Lucy is actually just a ape, not an ape-human hybrid.

Wood petrified in spring

June 2006, by Tas Walker

Secular research at a hot spring in Japan shows that wood can turn into stone much faster than geologists previously thought.1

The belief that fossils and rocks petrify over millions of years is a part of modern culture-like microwave ovens and jumbo jets. We are constantly fed the idea through newspapers, magazines, museums and text books. Like sticks of chalk in coloured water, people have absorbed the notion that fossils are millions of years old.

Rapid Petrification of Wood

Rapid Petrification of Wood: An Unexpected Confirmation of Creationist Research
by Andrew A. Snelling, Ph.D.

It is extremely unusual for creationist research to be favorably reported and referenced in a technical scientific paper by academic geologists published in a major, secular, geological journal. However, not only has this just happened, but the same paper reported experimental research that confirms the conclusions of the creationist research published in a young-earth creationist journal!

Proof of Rapid Petrification

Proof of Rapid Petrification

Students are often taught that it takes millions of years for things to petrify. This is simply not true. We have 3 pieces of petrified firewood in our museum in Pensacola Florida. Below are some pictures of items that have petrified very quickly. All that is required for petrification is for the object to be buried quickly so the minerals can replace the tissue slowly as it decays.

EVOLUTION COVER-UP
science, evolution, creation, fossils, fraud

The discovery was remarkable. Archaeologists in China had unearthed a fossil of a half-bird/half- dinosaur. This fossil was proclaimed to be irrefutable evidence of a transitional form between one species and another — evidence that evolutionists have long sought but never found.

Then the truth came out.

Believe it or not, this kind of hoax is nothing new.

Rapid Petrifaction

The Limestone Cowboy: Everyone has heard the story. “We know absolutely for certain, it takes millions and millions of years for fossils to petrify.” It’s so obvious that no proof is necessary and of course no witnesses verify. The claim is just repeated over and over. So we hear, “Everybody knows that.” Oh yea? How old do you think this boot could be? Millions and millions of years old? I suppose it could be made from T. Rex skin. Do you really think so?

The rubber-soled boot with petrified cowboy (human) leg, bones and all was found in a dry creek bed near the West Texas town of Iraan, about 1980 by Mr. Jerry Stone, an employee of Corvette oil company.
