Can a fossil have evolutionary significance while deep-sixing the idea of a "missing link"?
Evolutionists arenâ€™t yet sure if they should call it a human ancestor, but one thing they do know is that â€śArdiâ€ť does away with the idea of a â€śmissing link.â€ť That belief was quite clear as evolutionist scientists went to the media yesterday with their conclusions, and Americaâ€™s evening TV newscasts and the worldâ€™s major morning newspapers lapped it up.
Although first discovered in the early 1990s, the bones of Ardipithecus ramidus are only now being nominated for evolutionistsâ€™ fossil hall of fameâ€”via a slew of papers in a special issue of the journal Science. In it, Ardiâ€™s researchers describe the bones and make the case that Ardi is even more important in the history of human evolution than Lucy.
But despite claims of its evolutionary significance, one of the scientists who studied Ardi noted, â€śItâ€™s not a chimp. Itâ€™s not a human.â€ť That is, instead of looking like the hypothesized â€śmissing...
Ardipithecus ramidus was a tree climber and had opposable big toes (for grabbing tree branches with his toes) like the opposable thumb on apes but not on humans. His feet were like hands as on the apes at our local zoo.
Ardipithecus ramidus left no written record and human writing doesn't appear for "millions of years" later.
World population is now approaching 7 billion and is estimated at 150 million back in the year of 1 A.D.
If human population is millions of years old, why didn't it reach numbers in the millions or billions until recent centuries?
No, darkness goes with light, male with female, good coexists with evil, Creation with Creator. God made man in his image (Genesis 1:26) and man will be accountable at the end of the age when the dead will be resurrected. So, seek a good relationship of faith and trust now with the one and only Redeemer and Judge , Jesus Christ.
