Every time they find a bone chip or a broken tooth, they’re ready to call it yet another “extinct human species.” On the basis of evidence you could hold in the palm of your hand and still have room for bubble gum, we have the whole “Denisovan” cottage industry.
Another ‘Mysterious Human Relative’?
Someday somebody’s going to find a rusty old pop-top tab and National Geographic’s going to run an article on “our mysterious beer-brewing human relative.”
Piltdown Man (you could look it up)
Local legend has it that the last Piltdown Man lives in the space between the two surviving walls of what was once a carriage house. I remember when someone had an antique car stored in it. But a new landlord tore down the old garages, leaving poor Mr. Piltdown with something less than adequate housing.
They Never Learn (Scientists, That Is)
Oh! British scientists wanted so badly, so passionately, for Piltdown Man to be the real deal! American scientists were never entirely sold on it, but they didn’t want to stage another Lexington & Concord. They bided their time until the hoax was fully exposed during the mid-1950s… but not before Piltdown Man had gotten gigs in all the textbooks.
But the Brits have some ammo of their own. All they have to do is whisper, “Nebraska Man”… and it’s a food fight.
Once you’re part of Settled Science Inc., you can say just about anything without having to worry about the men in the white coats carting you off.
Scientist Says Chimps Mated With Pigs to Produce Humans (Not a Satire)
Did this guy really expect anyone to take him seriously? Well, of course he did: he’s a “leading geneticist,” people always take him seriously. You don’t want to be called “anti-science,” do you?
Our sin: we don’t just follow false prophets. We follow ridiculous prophets.
Jambo! Mr. Nature here. And if you want to see a lobster’s teeth, don’t bother looking in its mouth. No, the lobster’s teeth are in its hands. See the picture.
The left claw contains the molars. Take a closer look: they’re not so different from our molars. They are instantly recognizable–but for their weird location–as molars.
The cutting teeth are in the right-hand claw.
God’s stuff can leave us shaking our heads. Try to imagine having your teeth in the palms of your hands. I’ll understand if you cringe.
The lobster has the kind of teeth it needs to process its food. Its teeth are similar to mammals’ teeth. I can easily see God designing them like that on purpose. I can’t see mammals’ teeth “evolving” from lobsters’, or mammals and lobsters inheriting their teeth from some imaginary common ancestor. (But you can’t allow free speech because then some people might say they don’t believe in Evolution and next thing you know we’ll have a theocracy blah-blah-blah…)
God’s stuff is just so cool.

It’d be funny if it wasn’t so destructive to sanity: “scientists” saying, with a straight face, “Let’s prove Intelligent Design is wrong by designing robots that evolve!”
Let’s Make Robots That ‘Evolve’!
Unknowable wondered if these announcements are only there to generate publicity and hopefully attract funding. Science as hoopla. Well, it pays to advertise.
I’ve been wondering why the Drudge Report re-publishes so many of these stories. They usually turn out to be tripe.
Yiu “can” alyaws tel ordrinary dum peeple thay “nevver” goed to Collidge and thay are Anti Sience!! This one guy out Thare he dont know how themb Flying Snaiks thay Evolved so i amb goingto “tel” himb!!!

Michael Earl Riemer’s critique of “evolutionism”–as a false religion, a comedy, and a pseuo-science–is by no means gentle. Reindeer Don’t Fly (2018) really lays it on the line.
Evolution fairy tales have become part of our culture. More people question them now than used to, which means the good guys are scoring some points. But we still have a very long way to go before the spell is broken.
Riemer’s favorite tool is mockery. His targets have set themselves up as The Smartest People In The World, and their balloon needs popping. Leftids proclaim themselves to be wise and then get oodles of mileage out of it. Their prestige props up their foolish and often wicked notions, hiding the fact that they’re notions at all. So they need taking down a peg, and Mr. Riemer is more than happy to do it.
If you’d like some answers–well, actually a lot of answers–to the question, “So what’s wrong with evolution?”, this book will serve you well.
My wife and I like watching videos of prehistoric animals. Usually we can just tune out the Evolution just-so story that accompanies the video, if the visuals are cool enough.
So we settled down on Youtube to watch Morphed: Before They Were Bears.
Apart from the initial absurdity of declaring that life arose from non-living materials, purely by chance, it rained on de rocks and de rocks come alive, doo-dah, doo-dah, we were treated to unbearable nonsense about… bears. It seems that whenever prehistoric bears encountered some kind of environmental challenge, they wisely considered what they would need and then proceeded to evolve it.
Oh, boy! Whoever said there’s no quality control on Youtube wasn’t kidding!
So, ya see, the giant panda needed an opposable thumb so he could hold on to the bamboo while he was eating it, but the digits he already had were spoken for, so he just, like, went ahead and evolved one of his wrist bones into a kind of thumb… and what he was eating while waiting for his magical thumb to evolve, who knows? If it takes millions of years for revolutionary new body parts to evolve, how does the species last long enough to benefit by it? Or if it happens real fast, then how come no naturalist or farmer or zoo-keeper or pet owner has ever observed it?
This doesn’t even rise to the level of crapola. We couldn’t make it halfway through this video before we had to turn it off.
Darwinism wouldn’t last another ten days if there weren’t such a deep political investment in it by the Left.
