The theory of evolution is a valid scientific hypothesis, but the facts are that it has not been proved beyond a shadow of a doubt. To be proven valid, the theory of evolution must undergo the scrutiny (rigours) of the scientific method. This, however, cannot be accomplished because the millions of years required for experimental testing are beyond the reasonable limit of human observation.
The current 'evidence' for the theory of evolution would not stand up in a court of law while undergoing judicial scrutiny. There would be indications that biased interpretation of data had occurred, as alternative theories could be presented to account for observed and tested facts.
The theory of evolution needs its facade of scientific immutability lifted, and exposed for what it really is - an unproven scientific theory.
This set of facts and quotes is a step in the direction of lifting evolution's facade."
Therefore I wrote my material, because......
"I have been teaching science for 20 years, but I have had a number of problems with the theory of evolution.
1. I knew that there were no absolute proofs
With this background, I decided to write this book. It was written as a resource for science teachers and students, as a collation of information that contradicts what is being taught in schools.
I have structured each section by addressing its basic premises and then replying from logic, research, and the world's leading scientists.
Each section is introduced with the statement, "Evolution says". I did this because this is the way it is imposed on school children, i.e. as an irrefutable dictum. I reply with "The facts are", presenting factual material that should be included in lessons in schools.
The material I present in this book represented the available information at the time of publishing. There will be myriads of responses, regarding their validity, etc., however, these will be personal opinions which do not restrict them from being considered by others."
Articles include information on the following topics:-
#1 Piltdown Man, of which only skull fragments were found, is used as proof of human evolution. It was proved to be a hoax in 1982. Collagen tests have since proved the jaw to be from an orangutan which had had its teeth filed down.
#2 The oldest human-like fossil found so far is a modern human humerus dated by evolutionists at around 4 million years old. It is older than any supposed human ape-like ancestors such as Australopithecus.
#3 Fossils of modern humans, Homo erectus and Neandertals (or alternatively, Neanderthals), have been found together, at the same level, in the same fossil sites. It is therefore scientifically improper to state that modern humans evolved from Neandertals, and that Neandertals evolved from Homo erectus.
#4 There is nothing in the size of the brain to indicate morality, behaviour, or any degree of culture. Brain size should not be used to infer these type of characters on fossil remains.
#5 The first reasonably complete fossil Neandertal
skeleton was reconstructed by Boule in 1908 in an ape-like stoop - according
to his own interpretation. It took 40 years for his errors to be corrected,
yet many historians and teachers still teach Boule's original interpretation
of Neandertal physique as fact.
