Beware the Ida of March
It’s that time of year again readers.
A time to celebrate the "death" of Christianity again.
Humanists all over the world are now celebrating the holy grail of evolution, but this isn’t the first time that its happened.
Let’s do a short review before class starts.
A single strand of DNA contains 600,000 pages of information, whilst a single cell contains a cities worth of data……intelligent design anyone?
Human 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”).

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)
Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny? Haekel’s faked embryonic drawings
Archaeoraptor Liaoningensis: Fake Dinosaur-bird ancestor
And the list go’s on and on…..
The scientific community seems to have all gone mad. There is in no way a consensus about this fossil among respected researchers merely because Ida appears to have thumbs. The fossil Ida was exhumed 26 years ago. It was examined in secret and prepared meticulously for terrific response–both monetary and secularist in motive.
I’m not merely being defensive of a creationist worldview, which should somehow be put on the defensive, because there seems to be a parade in the scientific community over this so-called “proof.” I am saying to those who are quick to form astronomical conclusions about this fossil are no better off that the fools who bought into Madoff’s money scheme or PTL’s religious/money scheme. There are a number of scientists who have religious faith in naturalism and atheism, and they must dig up evidence to support their religious belief.
Sidenote, Only 3 months ago, on February 12, 2009, instead of saluting Abraham Lincoln on his 200th birthday, Google’s banner saluted Charles Darwin. Why “Darwin Day?” Because Abraham Lincoln stood out from among his Deist contemporaries and saluted Christ.
Jorn Hurum may be a Darwinian, but he is also desperate to defend his worldview. Most importantly for my post here, he has excellently business-savvy and has intentionally created the secularists’ wet dream.
