The Piltdown Warning: Sometimes "settled science" has a way of turning out to be a complete fraud.
American Thinker ^ | 12/21/2012 | Bruce Walker

The left loves to muster the armies of official "science" to discount conservative values and principles. Man-made global warming, of course, is one example.

Natural cycles of warming and cooling are indisputable.

When Europe was cooler, 10,000 years ago, Britain was not an island, and what would become the English Channel has been called Doggerland, a land bridge between Britain and mainland Europe. Doggerland vanished about 6,500 years ago as natural global warming melted the oceans enough to cause the sea to rise. Later, in the Little Ice Age, Britain endured a natural cooling which caused many crops to fail and ended wine-growing in that country.

Man-made global warming simply fills a need for statists who wish to grow rich and powerful off their demands for power over our lives. Hoyle, the great cosmologist, a few decades ago warned of a new ice age which could be prevented only by draconian control over our lives and enormous expenditures of international supergovernmental funds.

Science has been confused and discredited in other areas of our life. Consider man himself. Where did he come from? How can he change? The Soviets, who discounted the transmission of beneficial qualities by heredity, because that was in conflict with "scientific" Marxism, embraced the deadly and surreal quackery of Lysenko, a favorite of Stalin who thrived under his successors.

Lysenko said that acquired characteristics could be transmitted by heredity. So a man who studied chess and improved his game enormously could transmit that acquired ability to his children. Crops and livestock also could be improved that way.

Darwinists proclaimed that heredity produced, through natural selection, the development and growth of biological species, including man. Although this has remained a "theory" of evolution by natural selection and not a "law" of science,

Like the global warming hoax.

government spent trillions funding decades of fake research for the global warming hoax . this shows government/socialism never works.

Democrats want to empower government and to take away our individual rights and freedom.

Democrats including the media, democrat politicians, and the Obama piece of crap want to make us slaves of the government. They are enraged that we can even own any thing like land or guns or have any rights at all. They want to control everything and that’s why they want the government to own everything so then the government has absolute power.

The individual is small and powerless. The government is huge with trillions of $ at its disposal. The government has guns, armies etc. But a democrat thinks the government is not powerful enough and a democrat always wants to give more power to government and to take away power and rights from the individual. Doesn’t a stupid liberal realize that it too is an individual and are fostering their own enslavement and dis-empowerment, giving up its own rights?

liberals/democrats trust government bureaucrats ,politicians and government with their lives. Government is their God and so they are socialists/statists.

Most liberals don’t believe in God, so the State becomes their divine parent. And they have no problems with the State going “Old Testament” on its perceived enemies and blasphemers.

Liberal “Christians” mischaracterize God as a benevolent socialist dictator striving to assure equal outcomes for all. They believe the State should follow this misbegotten model, which has no Biblical support. That is one of the reasons Liberal Christians must continue to rewrite the Bible, with their endless versions and perversions.

"Piltdown Man" was a total fraud; "Neanderthal Man" is an oxymoron:

Actually, that’s not the case that was made for acquired characteristics. It was that characteristics aquired as a result of adaptation - bigger lungs for living in a higher altitude - could be passed on.
