John Meyer (my co-pastor) examines the marketing of "Ida" (the latest brainwashing attempt of the evolutionary biologists) at his site:
First of all, there is nothing significant about human evolution that can be learned or proven from a fossil that is claimed to be 47 million years old. According to evolution theory, our ancestors even 3 million years ago were still 3 feet high, stooped over, probably walking on all fours on their knuckles. So something from a supposed 47 million years ago is not a missing link between humans and apes. This find is simply a tool for a media blitz to brainwash our culture with the “truth” of Darwinism.
Here is a quote from a May 18th article in New York Times:
***It is science for the Mediacene age.
On Tuesday morning, researchers will unveil a 47-million-year-old fossil they say could revolutionize the understanding of human evolution at a ceremony at the American Museum of Natural History.
But the event, which will coincide with the publishing of a peer-reviewed article about the find, is the first stop in a coordinated, branded media event, orchestrated by the scientists and the History Channel, including a film detailing the secretive two-year study of the fossil, a book release, an exclusive arrangement with ABC News and an elaborate Web site.
“Any pop band is doing the same thing,” said Jorn H. Hurum, a scientist at the University of Oslo who acquired the fossil and assembled the team of scientists that studied it. “Any athlete is doing the same thing. We have to start thinking the same way in science.”***
So this is science thinking like a pop band. Remember that.
