Scientists Back Off of Ardi Claims (Evos give climate-hoaxers a run for their money...LOL!)
ICR News ^ | December 4, 2009 | Brian Thomas, M.S.

Posted on 12/04/2009 8:07:39 AM PST by GodGunsGuts

In May 2009, a remarkably well-preserved extinct primate, nicknamed “Ida,” was hailed as one of the most important fossil finds ever. It had features that some interpreted as a link between two primate body forms. At the time, ICR News suggested that its evolutionary significance was far overblown, predicting that the scientific consensus would offer retractions. Those retractions came three months later, confirming that the fossil―called Darwinius―was really just an extinct lemur variety...

Bless their collective hearts. One does have to ‘feel’ their pain in that vast emptiness of missing links.

I am glad you could post this here, I might have missed it.

When this “find” was announced the link they tried to make to man made no sense to me. I said to someone they will find out that this is an existing species.

So a single incorrect claim in paleontology that takes three months to correct is somehow equivalent to the AGW fraud?

What you meant to say was: "..on behalf of the dozen or so FReepers who nominally claim to belong to the Christian Right and who rabidly fantasize that this crap is actually representative of the belief of any Christians at all."

What? Scientist objectively evaluating a scientific claim in order to get the correct conclusion from the observable data available? Scientist challenging and correcting other scientific claims based on evidence? The free market place of ideas producing the best & accurate conclusions . . . What a concept! That’s what happens when the only dogma is the process not the conclusion.
Too bad we can’t apply the same standards to the biblical flood or the exodus or the earth standing still or the existence of biblical characters . . .

Could you be more specific?

The fossils were heralded as missing links and it turns out they were wrongly classified.

What’s the lie here?

Is it that the author said that the fossils weren’t what they were claimed to be in the first place?

Or that someone initially claimed that they were something they weren’t after all?

A person who does not believe what the Bible says, IMHO, is Not a Christian. That person discounts or dismisses what God has to tell us here. Calls Him a liar. Not much in the way of Christianity there.

There’s been more than one single incorrect claim about a fossil in the scientific world. Evolution is replete with claims that have eventually proved to be bogus.

The problem is, that when the claims are made, they are heralded with great fanfare. When they are debunked, it’s swept under the carpet.

It’s dishonest to keep trumpeting the triumphs and not admitting so vocally when you were wrong.

One reason is that it’s the cowards way out. The other reason is that it leaves the false impression that much more evidence exists connecting man to primates than is really out there.

Either way is deceptive, either outright lying, or allowing a lie to propagate without correcting it as strongly as announcing it.

I agree with you that this is not current thought but rather it is historic in some of the old great sermons of many years ago. The seminal point is that which ever approach the evolutionist take they are often confused at the best and guilty of overt deception at the worse (Piltdown man). tk

xcamel just likes to call those whom she disagrees with “liars” regardless of the veracity of the accusation. Thus, when she calls creationists liars, she is herself committing a lie. And you know what, her evo-atheist animal impulses are perfectly ok with it.
