Crushed Lemur Monkey is an Insult to the Evolution Hoax
American Daily Review ^ | 05/20/09 | Yomin Postelnik

Posted on 05/20/2009 12:19:27 PM PDT by Yomin Postelnik

In the latest act of media hyped pseudo-science, aka liberal/conventional science, the discovery of the crushed and flattened fossil of a lemur monkey, that while alive had a shattered left wrist, is being touted as the needed “proof” of Darwinian theory.

For the first time, all scientists interviewed freely admit that the theory of evolution had gaping holes in it. They just claim that all of the answers lie in the packaged, crush fossil that spent the last 20 years hanging on someone’s wall. In other words, they admit that until yesterday, anyone who claimed that there was anything close to conclusive proof of evolutionary was wrong, despite having sold that line for decades. The extent of the absurdity of their new “proof” will be outlined below.

The media, which specializes in hyping the ordinary, went as far as to call this spectacle the possible eighth wonder of the world. These are the same crowd that revels in referring to every new president (regardless of party) as the next possible Lincoln or FDR, every foreign leader the next possible Churchill and every Vice President of the United States…. Well, I guess there are some things that even today’s media cannot hype.

I read a few articles on this fossil yesterday, and didn't see any of these statements/claims in any of them. I'm interested in reading the articles you read.

Silly me! I thought the discovery of Piltdown Man proved evolution back in 1912. At least it was "settled science" for most of 40 years.

This kind of article decreases the value of FR. It is anti-scientific, to say the least. If I were given the job by some political party to find a way to make FR look ridiculous, I’d triple this kind of post.

Evolution is a lot more viable than the belief that living things appear magically out of nowhere.

"Crushed Lemur Monkey is an Insult to the Evolution Hoax

Like all those other great theoretical scientific hoaxes - Universal Gravity, Relativity, Quantum Field Theory and countless other scientific explanations for the natural world we inhabit. Why does anyone take these darned scientist seriously?

Hm. Maybe because anti-religion cabal will use this to say God is disproved by Darwin.

Seriously, if you look at this and say, “That explains us!”

Well, that might be an indication that we’re DEvolving.

Silly you ... it means that anyone buying into any aspect of evolutionary theory is a liberal, God denying, atheist who hates God, is afraid of God, socialist intent on destroying western civilization as we know it.

And they all kick little dogs for sport when no one is watching, and secretly admire Michael Vick.

Who said living things (or anything) appear out of nowhere? You do if you subscribe to the basic origins theory espoused by evolutionists, don't you?

Tell me where the stuff that distilled into pond scum that turned into utterly complex living creatures (all by accident)come from? (violates the law of entropy, no?)

Yeah, I know, the big bang, prime atom, etc etc etc, but where did they come from? If you say there was a precursor to the precursor I'll still ask “and where did that come from”? (violates the law of conservation of energy, no?)

Actions require an Actor. His name is Jesus Christ, the great I AM. My faith is much less difficult to enter into than yours-yours being accidental and all; mine being deliberate and an act of love.

He created-yes, out of an unfathomable ability compared to what we know as mankind. It is the only answer to origins that satisfies me. I am valuable-a specially crafted person; not an accident, worth only my weight in cheap chemicals, life is much much more than that!

Ridicule now if you must. I can take the heat!

A very funny bit from the movie “Gettysburg”:

Major General George E. Pickett: Sirs, perhaps there are those among you who believe you are descended from a [sic] ape. I suppose there may even be those among you who believe that I am descended from a [sic] ape. But I challenge the man to step forward who believes that General Robert E. Lee is descended from a [sic] ape.

Who are you? I never claimed you were a "moneky decendant"!

I asked the author/poster of this to cite the origins for all the strawmen he constructed in his article.

He did not do that, nor did you, but I didn't ask you. You didn't write it.

I also would like to know how you "insult a hoax." Maybe you can answer that one!

Now, let us not be hasty. There may be some value in this evolutionary theory. If the monkey had a broken wrist, how would it open its beer? Huh? Answer me that! Thus, the evolution of the opposable big toe. It makes perfect sense, the monkey holds the beer with his now functional foot and opens it with his still functional right hand, the beer gets opened and drunk. By the third or forth beer, humanity emerges and, once again, the theory of evolution is vindicated. So there, all you fundamentalist extremist whackos, refute THAT! I dare you!

Evolution is a lot more viable than the belief that living things appear magically out of nowhere.

Do you have any clue just what a non sequitur that is? Staunch Darwinsts would be appalled. For years, when creationists would point out the impossibility of spontaneous generation, Dwarnists would ridicule that as confusing the origins of life with the development of life. You can't play the game if you don't know the rules! :)

I thought that was funny too, how last week the evolutionists ridiculed people who said the evidence was lacking, and now they are all about how great is is we finally found the evidence.

Of course, the idea of “ancestor” means something different to these people. I guess by their standards I stepped on my cousin yesterday.

An odd definition of viable, since regardless of the belief in evolution or not, in truth living things did appear magically out of nowhere.

by a loose definition of the term “magic”, which can also describe where each of us “came from”, little one-celled organisms growing into functional human beings.
