We’ve Got the Fossils

This website has a few nice quotes I thought I’d pass along:

Michael Oard, a creationist writing in CRSQ, said:

“I was surprised to find that instead of enough fossils barely to fit into a coffin, as one evolutionist once stated [in 1982], there were over 4,000 hominid fossils as of 1976. Over 200 specimens have been classified as Neanderthal and about one hundred as Homo erectus. More of these fossils have been found since 1976.”

[Review of the book, Bones of Contention: A Creationist Assessment of Human Fossils, in the Creation Research Society Quarterly, Vol. 30, March 1994, p. 222.]

Martin Lubenow, creationist and author of Bones of Contention: A Creationist Assessment of Human Fossils, also admitted about six months later in the same creationist journal:

“The current figures [circa 1994] are even more impressive: over 220 Homo erectus fossil individuals discovered to date, possibly as many as 80 archaic Homo sapiens fossil individuals discovered to date, and well over 300 Neanderthal fossil individuals discovered to date.”

[Letter to the editor of the Creation Research Society Quarterly, Vol. 31, Sept. 1994, p. 70]

If you’ve never looked before, you should check out the Talk Origins Archive’s Prominent Hominid Fossils page. It’s really an extraordinary collection, and more specimens are found every year. It’s completely unjustifiable that anyone would ever ask “So where’s the missing link?” or “Why don’t you have the fossils?” Every schoolchild in America should be forced to see these pictures. Alas.
