Step Aside Lucy; Itís Ardi Time (Temple of Darwin: WE ARE NO LONGER DESCENDED FROM APES!)
CEH ^ | October 2, 2009

Posted on 10/05/2009 6:44:21 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

Oct 2, 2009 — A new fossil human ancestor has taken center stage. Those who love Lucy, the australopithecine made famous by Donald Johanson (and numerous TV specials), are in for a surprise. Lucy is a has been. Her replacement is not Desi Arnaz, but is designated Ardi, short for Ardipithecus ramidus – the new leading lady in the family tree. Actually, she has been around for years since her discovery in Ethiopia in 1992. It has taken Tim White and crew 15 years to piece together the bones that were in extremely bad condition. But now, Ardi has made her debut and is stealing the limelight...

Ping!

PS I have seen the following video series, and they are excellent (esp. for the kids)!

Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution is a delightful trio of films by Dr. Jobe Martin produced by Exploration Films.  Perfect for the family and Christian school, these interesting and fun films showcase a zoo full of amazing animals – big and small, familiar and unfamiliar.  It’s also the story of an evolutionist who was challenged by the evidence to consider creation.  Dr. Martin, who was personal dentist to President Lyndon Johnson, followed the evidence and became a creationist and devout Bible-believing Christian.  His own personal enthusiasm for the wonders of the animal world shows through each episode.  The short-module arrangement makes the films convenient for teachers.  They’re fun to watch over and over
    Who wouldn’t be interested in learning more about elephants and giraffes and penguins and hummingbirds and lions?  From the dog and the horse to birds and insects you probably never heard of, their stories are told by Dr. Martin and field host David Hames with great photography and amazing facts.  Dr. Martin has uncovered some facts that are little known even by experts.  The evidence speaks for itself: these animals could never have evolved by chance and natural selection; they were designed.  The films go beyond mere intelligent design.  They present the God of the Bible as Creator, and also share Martin's own testimony of the power of the gospel in his own life.  Your life will be happier if Dr. Martin’s effervescent love and enthusiasm for creation rubs off on you.  Browse the science catalog at Exploration Films for books, study guides and other resources available to accompany the films.

Lucy was kind of cute. I'm so disappointed.


Can we give her a decent burial now?

Shouldn’t we find the rest of her first?

Only the incorrectly taught or deliberately misrepresenting would claim men evolved from apes. For those of you who wish to be educated, men and apes are descended from a common ancestor. To those of you who wish to continue perpetuating untruths, what else are you lying about?

Whew, thanks for the link!

I find it amazing that this new “find” - Ardi - who now replaces LUCY - was is being given the ga ga treatment it has received (saw one guy on tv news interview just overwhelmed with emotion at this new “discovery”)....when the guy who made this discovery reported the fossil was so fragile it dissolved into dust at the touch. Yet from that, we get this full blown picture of Ardi??

What faith does it take for “scientists” to “believe in” this new tale of our human “ancestry”....in the long line of evolutionary “tales”.....which eventually prove to be either fakes or wrong by new “discoveries”.

A LOT MORE FAITH then it takes to look at creation and to know that only Creator God could have done this, including making mankind IN HIS IMAGE just as His Word says!

That’s just silly semantics. It’s not a lie to refer to our “common ancestor” as an ape.

Delugists still on the 19th Century page of "Missing Link": Apes stopped evolving, then humans evolved.

in another 200 years they may get around to bashing the notion of a common ancestor.

Not really. It’s like saying that the falseness of the claim that Brits descended from Italians is just semantics. Clearly they did not. Though they certainly share a common lineage.

I remeber a small story when we decoded the genetic code that some scientists were going to use that code that determine once and for all that we were descended from apes.

The last I heard it was actually showing a different genetic result. Could this be part of that?

Except that we don’t know (who?) that common ancestor was.

"WE ARE NO LONGER DESCENDED FROM APES!"

Apes will be relieved to hear this.

Wrong:

“A new report argues that chimpanzees are so closely related to humans that they should be included in our branch of the tree of life.”

” If a snake on a plane made it to Hawaii, for instance, many native birds would be severely threatened.”

Your source needs a lesson in basic biology. It takes at least two snakes, unless the one on the plane was carrying but he doesn’t say that.

I remember my Sunday School teacher telling us that men had one fewer ribs than womem because God took Adam's rib to make woman.
