S E E TATEMENTS of CIENCE and CRIPTURE XHIBITED XAMINED XPLAINED DUCATIONAL DIFYING VANGELICAL Presented by Dr Thomas J Kindell Founder & President of Reasons for Faith Ministries, Inc. “Be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is within you” I Peter 3:15 THE CASE FOR CREATION

Slide 3: 

Is There A In Your Family Tree?

Slide 4: 

NO SEED

Slide 5: 

“It’s a shame that there are precious few hard facts when it comes to the origin of life... the how part has everybody stumped. Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.” Paul Davies (Australian Centre for Astrobiology, Macquarie Univ.), Born Lucky, New Scientist, Vol. 179 (2403):32, July 12, 2003

Slide 6: 

NO SEED NO TRUNK

Slide 7: 

“The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology, the evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of their branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of fossils.” Stephen J. Gould, Natural History, Vol. 86, pgs 22, 30

“You are an animal and share a common heritage with earthworms.” Biology: Visualizing Life, Holt, 1994

Slide 13: 

Darwinian evolution “impossible” to observe. T. Dobzhansky Mutation/Selection mechanism “effectively dead.” S. Gould No single “watertight” transitional fossil known. C. Patterson

Slide 14: 

Nebraska Man as depicted in the Illustrated London News They did NOT have: A complete skeleton A complete skull A complete jaw

Slide 15: 

All they did have in its entirety was: A SINGLE MOLAR TOOTH!

Slide 16: 

What were the tactics used to ascertain the details of this sketch? If you squeeze a tooth long enough and hard enough you can force it to confess to anything!

Slide 17: 

Full examination results finally published in Scientific American, Dec. 16, 1927. Nebraska Man turned out to be neither an ape nor a man. It actually turned out to be: A PIG!

Slide 18: 

Piltdown Man was based on fossil specimens found by Charles Dawson near Piltdown, England in 1912.

Slide 19: 

From 1912 to 1953 Piltdown Man reigned supreme in our textbooks and museums. Scores of books, pamphets and articles were published about Piltdown Man.

Slide 20: 

Piltdown Man is now recognized as one of the most spectacular and longest enduring frauds in the history of modern science.

Eosimius Ancestor of apes and humans? Drawing courtesy of Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Slide 23: 

Eosimius: The Evidence The size of grains of rice! “…shy, nocturnal and had large saucer-like eyes and flitted about the treetops.” Time, March 27, 2000, p. 84

Slide 24: 

Ardipithecus ramidus kadabba

Slide 25: 

Ardipithecus ramidus kadabba Hominid (apeman) status claimed on the basis of a single toe bone!

Slide 26: 

Ardipithecus ramidus kadabba 18 KM away in a different stratum!

Slide 27: 

Ardipithecus ramidus kadabba Spread over an area 15 KM long! Was this history’s first suicide bomber? Was he carrying a nuclear bomb?

Slide 28: 

“Few sciences produce such abundant returns from so few fragments of fact as palaeontology.” Nigel I Lawkes, The Times (London), Sept 23, 1994

Slide 29: 

“A five million year old piece of bone that was thought to be the collarbone of a humanlike creature is actually part of a dolphin rib... The problem with a lot of anthropologists is that they want so much to find a hominid that any scrap of bone becomes a hominid bone.” Dr. Tim White (anthropologist, University of California, Berkeley) as quoted by Ian Anderson in New Scientist, April 28, 1983, p. 199

Slide 30: 

From Ape-Men by M. Bowden Ape-men have been deduced from bones which actually belonged to: ALLIGATOR BEAR DOLPHIN DONKEY ELEPHANT HORSE

Slide 35: 

21st CENTURY FRAUD “A leading Japanese archaeologist, whom colleagues had nicknamed ‘god’s hands’ for his uncanny ability to know just where to dig to find ancient relics, has publicly admitted to faking his most recent discoveries. Shinichi Fujimura was renowned for discovering Japan’s ‘oldest’ sites of civilization, making front-page news each time he found ever-older artifacts.”

Slide 36: 

“But a Japanese newspaper had secretly photographed Fujimura sneaking onto the site in the early morning, digging holes and burying the stone implements a few days before he and colleagues unearthed them and proudly announced the ‘discovery’ to the media. After exposure, Fujimura apologized to the media, head bowed, saying, ‘I can’t imagine what made me do it.’” The West Australian, 9 December 2000, p. 23

Slide 37: 

This reconstruction indicates nothing but an ape This reconstruction appears to be a hominid

Slide 38: 

“Everybody knows fossils are fickle; bones will sing any song you want to hear.” Shreeve, J., Argument over a woman, Discover 11(8):58, 1996

Slide 51: 

“But I myself remain totally unpersuaded. Almost always when I have tried to check the anatomical claims on which the status of Australopithicus is based, I have ended in failure...the Australopithecine skull is in fact so overwhelmingly simian as opposed to human that the contrary proposition could be equated to an assertion that black is white.” S. Zuckerman, Beyond the Ivory Tower, Taplinger Pub. Co., NY, pg. 77

Slide 60: 

“…the australopithecines known over the last several decades…are now irrevocably removed from a place in the evolution of human bipedalism, possibly from a place in a group any closer to humans than to African apes and certainly from any place in the direct human lineage.” Dr. Charles Oxnard, The Order of Man, Yale University Press, pg. 332.

Bias in Reconstructions “I wanted to get a human soul into this ape-like face, to indicate something about where she was headed.” John Gurche, sculptor, National Geographic 189(3):96-117, March 1996

Slide 64: 

Homo habilis (handy man) Louis Leakey (1903-1972) Now widely considered an “invalid taxon” (a mixture of more than one fossil type) Nature 377:111, 1995

Slide 65: 

Homo habilis (handy man) Louis Leakey (1903-1972) “…if there weren’t a Homo habilis we would have to invent one.” Milford Wolpoff, American Journal of Physical Anthropolgy 89(3), Nov. 1992, p, 402

“Detailed comparison of Neanderthal skeletal remains with those of modern humans have shown that there is nothing in Neanderthal anatomy that conclusively indicates locomotor, manipulative, intellectual, or linguistic abilities inferior to those of modern humans.”Erik Trinkaus, “Hard Times Among the Neanderthals,” Natural History, 87:10, p. 58 :

Slide 73: 

Neandertal Model endorsed by Erik Trinkaus Trinkaus is one of the world’s greatest authorities on Neandertals

Slide 75: 

ALL MEN ALL APES

“For example, no scientist could logically dispute the proposition that man, without having been involved in any act of divine creation, evolved from some ape-like creature in a very short space of time – speaking in geological terms – without leaving any fossil traces of the steps of the transformation.”S. Zuckerman, Beyond the Ivory Tower, Taplinger Publishing Co., p. 77 :

BIBLICAL DEFINITION OF FAITH Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) Now faith is the substance of fossils hoped for, the evidence of links not seen. EVOLUTIONIST’S DEFINITION OF FAITH
