“Early” Man?

What follows are examples usually given of transitional "ape-men" that "prove" the evolutionary theory. They ALL are without exception, fraudulent.

Java Man (Pithecanthropus) - In 1890, a skull cap, femur, and two molar teeth were grouped together as belonging to the same person. The skull is that of an ape, but the teeth and the femur bone of an human. What was not published was that they were found 45 feet apart from each other, along with many other bones of clearly apes, humans, and other animals. It was a grocery store of “parts” to construct any animal you wanted! Java man has since been reclassified as human.

Neanderthal Man (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) - 1856, in Neanderthal, Germany, a skull cap and limb bones were found. It was grouped with a set of skeletons found all over Europe that had the following characteristics: prominent eyebrow ridges, low forehead, long narrow brain case, protruding upper jaw, a strong lower jaw lacking a chin. The overall skeletons were short, and stooped-over. Anthropologists believed it to be a “missing link” between man and ape because it seemed to have shuffled along when walking. However, 150 years later, it is now admitted that these skeletons were of people that suffered from rickets, and syphilis. Neanderthal Man was just a variation of the modern human kind with disease!

The Piltdown Man (Eoanthropus). In England, in 1912, a human skull cap and an orangutan’s jaw were grouped together, along with a tooth as a hoax to prove another so-called “missing link.” It was believed by the scientific world for over 40 years until tested for age, only to find that the tooth had been filed down to look human, and the jaw bone stained to look as old as the skull cap.

The Peking Man - all the “evidence” of this ape-man was lost in World War II, and is not available for examination.

The Nebraska Man (Hesperopithecus) - an entire skeleton of an ape-man was constructed based upon a single tooth of a supposed “missing link.” The tooth was discovered to be of a rare pig found in Paraguay.  In 1922, Henry Osborn, the manager of New York’s American Museum of Natural History, declared that he had found a fossil molar tooth. Many authorities supported Osborn’s findings as a human ancestor. Just the fact that they made such a judgment based on so scanty a piece of evidence is very  telling. Even experts are capable of fooling themselves, and their adherents. More excavations were done at the site, the rest of the creature was found, and it was determined instead to be tooth of extinct peccary (similar to a pig), (Science, 1927, 66:579). Then to add to the evolutionary embarrassment, the peccary (prosthennops) was later discovered alive in Paraguay by Ralph Wetzel, (Science, 1975, 189:379).

Lucy (Ramapithecus) - once widely accepted as the direct ancestor of humans, it has now been realised that this skeleton is merely an extinct type of orangutan - not an early human.

And they call all this “SCIENCE?”
