Upside Down Evolutionary Vision of Ancient Man

Although it is impossible to keep track of the many changing claims of anthropologists Anthropologists study the origin, the behavior, and the physical, social and cultural development of humans. over the past century, celebrated “ancestors” of mankind and “missing links” have been silently discarded. In an attempt to further their careers and elevate their professional esteem, and in their effort to certify their claims of evolution and uniformity theory, some scientists have deceptively misled the world by rebuilding fossil animals from a few bone fragments or planting fake bones. The following are a few examples.

Neanderthal Man (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) fossils were found in France in 1908. Reconstruction by secular anthropologists pictures a “brutish, stooped, knuckle-dragging ape-man”—but in fact, many competent scientists admit the so-called Neanderthals were fully human just like modern-day man. These people likely lived in the immediate post-flood period (Ice Age) when man was beginning to colonize the world. Many now recognize the stooped posture was because of the disease, rickets Rickets is a softening of the bones in children which commonly lead to fractures and deformity. It is among the most frequent childhood diseases in many developing countries. The predominant cause is vitamin D deficiency.39—worsened by the post-diluvium, Ice Age environment. As previously stated, these people are recognized as intelligent and highly skilled with an advanced social structure. There is also evidence suggesting their belief in the existence of an afterlife.

Ramapithecus (Ramapithecus) fossils were discovered in northern India and in East Africa in 1932. Although it was an apelike creature, Ramapithecus was considered a possible human ancestor based on a reconstructed jaw and dental characteristics of fragmentary fossils. A complete jaw discovered in 1976 was clearly nonhuman and the fossils are now recognized as an extinct orangutan.

Piltdown Man (Eoanthropus) fossils were found in a gravel pit in Sussex, England, in 1912, and were considered to be the second most important fossil proving the evolution of man. This was a hoax based on a human skull cap of modern age and an orangutan’s jaw. The fragments had been chemically stained to appear old, and the teeth had been filed down. For 40 years it was widely publicized as the “missing link.”

Nebraska Man (Hesperopithecus) fossil was based on a single tooth in 1922. Nevertheless, this fossil tooth grew to be considered an evolutionary link between man and monkey. An identical tooth was found in a wild pig now living only in Paraguay.

Java Man (Pithecanthropus) and Peking Man (Sinanthropus) fossil remains were once promoted as “missing links,” but morphology, and archaeological and cultural findings suggest that Homo erectus was fully human (Homo sapiens). As with the Neanderthal Man, these people likely lived in the immediate post-flood period of the Great Ice Age. As suggested by Dr. Alan Thorne, an evolutionist, in 1993, “They’re not Homo erectus, they’re people.”40

Orce Man fossil was discovered in 1982 near the Spanish town of Orce, and was claimed to be a human cranial fragment. It was hailed as the oldest fossilized human remains found in Europe. Scientists said the skull belonged to a 17–year-old man who lived 900,000 to 1.6 million years ago, and even depicted detailed drawings to represent what he would have looked like. It was later learned that the skull fragment was not human but actually that of an infant donkey.

Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis) was once promoted as the missing link. It is ape-like, and many evolutionists no longer consider it to be transitional to humans. 

Ida (Darwinius masillae; name in honor of Darwin) recently promoted by the media as the “missing link” is nothing more than a fossilized lemur. Another false claim that has been quietly discarded.

It seems that anthropologists parade another fossil find before the media every decade or so claiming to be “the” missing link. Such claims, of course, are nonsense and fictitious and are proclaimed by evolutionists in an effort to defend and validate a false doctrine—the so-called missing link is still missing because the hypothetical ancestor does not exist.
