11 NJ B ible S cience.org 11 False Ancestors of Man

12 NJ B ible S cience.org Eoanthropus dawsoni (Piltdown man) 12 Discovered in Sussex England. Consisted of an orangutan jaw with filed teeth and a human skull cap. It was an intentional hoax and accepted until BOGUS ANCESTOR

13 NJ B ible S cience.org Nebraska man 13 Based on a single tooth found in 1922 by Harold Cook in western Nebraska. Later it turned out to be from an extinct pig ! ( Hesperopithecus haroldcookii) BOGUS ANCESTOR

14 NJ B ible S cience.org Ramapithecus 14 Discovered 1932 in India, Consisted of teeth and jaw fragments, Now accepted as an extinct orangutan BOGUS ANCESTOR

15 NJ B ible S cience.org 15 Candidate Ape Men: Neanderthals Australopithecines Homo erectus

16 NJ B ible S cience.org 16 Neanderthals

17 NJ B ible S cience.org Neanderthals 17 First discovered in1856. Evidence of tool use, ritualistic burial of their dead, and jewelry. Now regarded as human.

18 NJ B ible S cience.org Neanderthals 18 Tools Jewelry

19 NJ B ible S cience.org 19 Australopithecines

20 NJ B ible S cience.org 20 Australopithecines Australopithecus robustus Skull SK-48 Australopithecus boisei Skull KNM-ER 406 Australopithecus africanus Skull Sts 5 "Mrs. Ples Models from Bone Clones Inc., Canoga park, CA EXTINCT APES Australopithecus aethiopicus Skull KNM-WT Australopithecus afarensis Skull "Lucy"

21 NJ B ible S cience.org A Famous Australopithecine 21 Australopithecus afarensis - Lucy as in Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

22 NJ B ible S cience.org Laetoli Footprints 22 Discovered in 1976 by Mary Leakey, dated to be 3.5 million years old – the time of the australopithecines but are fully human in appearance !

23 NJ B ible S cience.org 23 Homo erectus

24 NJ B ible S cience.org Homo erectus individual fossils morphologically similar to humans 40 out 83 sites have stone tools, 8 controlled fire 1 burial, 1 cremation, human carving, shelters, etc.

25 NJ B ible S cience.org Homo erectus 25 Similar to modern humans below the neck Homo erectus Modern man

26 NJ B ible S cience.org Homo erectus - Java man 26 Found by laborers for Eugene Dubois in 1891 near Trinil, Java. Based on a skull cap and femur found 50 ft. away. At the time of the discovery, he also found two human skulls nearby that he did not reveal. (Pithecanthropus erectus)

27 NJ B ible S cience.org Homo erectus 27 Homo erectus Skull - Tattersall / Sawyer Recreation Homo erectus Skull Sangiran 17 BH-018 Java man

28 NJ B ible S cience.org Homo erectus tools 28 When Hand Axe is thrown like a discuss it lands knife edge side 93% of the time

29 NJ B ible S cience.org Cranial Sizes 29 Homo erectus Homo erectus and Neanderthals may be the same Neanderthals

30 NJ B ible S cience.org 30 Putting It All Together

31 NJ B ible S cience.org Pre-men Fossil Catalogs ? 31 The question is why is there not more work done in pre-men Systematics ? The last catalog of fossil was made in At that time the following fossilized individuals were found – roughly 4000; Africa1,390 (1976) Europe and USSR1,516 (1969,1970) Americas, Asia, Australia 1,092 (1974) Marvin Lubenow estimates the current total to be 7000 in (2004);

32 NJ B ible S cience.org A Class Exercise 32 Can the lineage of man be found in the scientific literature? Each of the 30 college students were given 5 pre-men fossils Rules: 1)Minimum 8 hours of research 2)At 5 evolutionist sources / no creationist material 3)Find the date 4)Find the category (Homo sapiens, Homo erectus, Homo habilis, Neanderthal, australopithecine) When the students put the evolutionists results together the theory of evolution was falsified !

33 NJ B ible S cience.org Human Family Tree ? 33 No clear ancestor path Homo sapiens Australopithecines Homo erectus

34 NJ B ible S cience.org Evolutionary Show-Stopper (In detail) 34 Humans, Homo erectus, and Australopithecines lived at the same time ! Homo sapiens Australo- pithecines Homo erectus

35 NJ B ible S cience.org Evolutionary Show-Stopper (Simplified) 35 Humans, Neanderthals, Homo erectus, Homo Habilis, and Australopithecines lived at the same time ! Homo sapiens Australo- pithecines Homo erectus Neander.

36 NJ B ible S cience.org Secular Anthropology 36 Intelligent and capable Secular Pattern Cave man Evolution

37 NJ B ible S cience.org Biblical Anthropology 37 Intelligent and capable creation Biblical Pattern Turn stupid Turn away from God Gen 4:17 Cain builds city named after son Enoch Gen 4:22 Tubal-cain foundry with bronze and iron Gen 4:19 Jabel invents harp & flute

38 NJ B ible S cience.org 38 Summary

39 NJ B ible S cience.org 39 The Missing Link ?
