Posted on 12/07/2009 2:23:10 AM PST by Natural Law
Museums and textbooks often use artistic renderings to estimate what a fossilized animal or plant may have looked like when it was alive. These images by paleoartists put flesh and faces on skeletal structures, and they can influence public perception of early human history more than the actual scienceparticularly in regards to human evolution.

Thomas contends that the selection of dark features adapted to equatorial climates are not "normal". Sounds like a pretty racist conclusion to me.
Oh, the horror!
You would thing that Deak would have watched an episode or two of the Flintstones before creating his renderings or early humans.
So NIxon was a throwback?
And dont forget, they had molars! That means they were used to eating berries and roots!
And that sharp rock nearby? They used that to skin wild animals they trapped with sticks because they didn’t have bows and arrows yet!
And that fossilized twine? That was used to tie flint to another stick to form a crude spear!
And, they obviously dressed like Fred Flintstone, walked hunched over and were barefoot in the snow
What is this guy talking about? We already have living fossils in our midst that could serve as a model for the appearance of our ancestors.
Someone please cue up a photo of Helen Thomas.
The whole idea of pushing evolution requires a lot of creative art work.
my brother is a neanderthal
Its “Snap You Finger Time” again.
Look who is posting our threads for us. The Creation Opposition Groupies (COGs) must really be desperate for attention.
If Brian Thomas were a doctor, and you went to him because you were sick, he’d say, “Well, we don’t want to assume anything about germs. I’ll need to test your humors, bleed you, and check your house for miasmas first.”
The artist certainly has a right to claim the necessity of using artistic license but not to portray it as fact.
The selection of pigmentation and shape of the nose was based upon sound scientific evidence and scientific principles. BTMS said they weren't "normal" because "normal" people have narrow noses, thin lips, and light skin. I suppose it is difficult to see blacks as "normal" human beings when peering through eye holes cut into a pillow case.
It is ironic to see how the YEC posse has to straddle the line that divides good from evil depending on who is doing the posting. Had this statement been attributed to Carles Darwin or even Margret Sanger (an equally abhorrent human being) GGG would have already had a dozen posts about it.
Be sure to check for plagiarism.
And while you are at it don't forget copyright violation and violations of the ADA.
For the record, this post is being posted in News/Activism by the express permission of Jim Robinson, founder and owner of Free Republic: Debate on church doctrine and or threads on specific religious matters may be best posted in the religion forum, but the defense of religious freedom, especially against those who wish to deprive us of same belongs front and center on FR....They banned God and prayer and creationism from public schools and public places, but Ill be damned if theyre gonna ban Him or it from FR!

Looking at a bone that one says is millions of years old tells nothing about skin color or hair covering. and one only has to track the changes in facial features attributed to Neanderthals to see the amount of interpretation of these scientific evidences and principles.
I can't agree with much of Thomas’ conclusions but really! PILLOW CASE WITH EYEHOLES????
Is that sort of comment not just what you complain about?
Oops...I got it wrong...there’s no asterisk on this one.
Nor do you add profanity to the keywords, “bovinescat” being a stand in.
The ADA and the IDA, both real money makers, those.
The Yabba Dabba Doers don’t want to admit that Moses didn’t look lik Charleston Heston or Jesus look like a fashion model.
They lived in the middle east and looked like modern Egyptians and Palestinians.
If you don’t face those facts, then you are the racists.
