DEBUNKING EVOLUTIONARY PROPAGANDA, Part 4

Evolutionists are not qualified to assess 'any' evidence

A lifelong reader of textbooks in every field exposes “thousands” of examples of false statements of fact and other propaganda techniques easily spotted in anthropology, biology, and paleontology textbooks


By John Feliks

"When evolution-motivated science dupes the whole planet for 35 years then you know it is time for open classroom discussions."

Fig.1-composite-print-screen-Pshop-crop-resolution300_reconstruction+9bright.jpgFig. 1. Museums and corrupted textbooks continue to mislead anyone trusting that evolution is ‘science.’ One way in which the falsehood is enforced is by portraying ancient apes not only with human feet but with human posture, human gait, human gestures and expressions. Active in U.S. legislation is an aggressive agenda to force these debunked ideas on captive-audience school children as scientific fact. Images: Wikimedia Commons. Are we really ready to allow an evidence-free state religion? The U.S. has had none since 1776. Evolution is plagued by one fiasco after another while textbooks make thousands of easily-documented false statements of fact. If Americans do not wake up there is the potential of losing the right to openly question falsehood in general.


tn_Fig.2-composite-print-screen-Pshop-resolution300_jfeliks.jpg“The Prezletice human molar has been re-identified as a bear ... and the 'hominid' skull from Venta Micena as a horse.”

-Clive Gamble, The Palaeolithic societies of Europe, 1999: 116


“The history of paleoanthropology is one of repeated misidentification of fossil ancestors.”

-Sarmiento et al, The Anatomical Record (The New Anatomist), 2002.


Evolutionists in the U.S. are trying to force national legislation so that evolutionary human origins can be taught to captive-audience school children as fact—unhindered by discussion of conflicting evidence (Fig. 1).

Proof that the 3.6 million-year old Laetoli footprints (about 70 in all) were made by humans and not by australopithecines. A. Australopithecine foot (Wikimedia Commons picture horizontally flipped to facilitate comparison with C).  B. Photo of Laetoli footprint (horizontally flipped for comparison with C). C. Drawing of modern human foot bones. Prediction: If you’ve been through standard science training you will probably experience some resistance and even imagine that A & B must go together somehow (scientists have tried every means even going so far as to suggest that the big toe was tucked under the foot). Since evolutionists are only looking for transitional ape-men that is what they are going to find and see. It should be recalled that the Laetoli footprints were ‘commandeered’ by Donald Johanson for australopithecines in the 1970s as proof that they walked upright despite the fact that their discoverer, Mary Leakey, was about to announce them as the oldest “human” footprints (D. Ellis, The Leakey Family: Leaders in the Search for Human Origins, 1978: 100). The footprints’ excavator, Tim White said that they were unmistakably like “modern human footprints.” When evolution-motivated science dupes the whole planet for 35 years then you know it is time for open classroom discussions.


34.) “There is a great deal of fossil evidence that several species of hominids of the genera Australopithecus and Paranthropus were among the earliest hominid fossils.”

Concepts in Biology, 10th Edition, Engor & Ross, 2003: 232.


“A great deal of fossil evidence”? Here is what the textbook says just a few lines later:


“It is important to recognize that there are few fossils of these early humanlike organisms
and that often they are fragments (ibid).


35.) “It is apparent that the australopiths...walked upright like humans.”

This central evolutionary claim has essentially no supporting evidence (see Figs. 2, 4 & 5).

Fig. 3. Recommended entertainment to at least think about mass delusion: This Side of Paradise—an excellent original Star Trek episode suggesting how entire communities including scientists can be collectively duped and how challenging it can be to try and break through. Star Trek was famous for developing this particular theme with another example being, Return of the Archons. Here was a static culture blocking individual expression and creativity. Its cloaked & cowled lawgivers are pretty good representations of the mentality of anonymous peer reviewers in anthropology where anyone challenging “Landru” (or Darwin, instead) have their minds wiped clean. I highly recommend these episodes for anyone wishing to start snapping out of the deer-caught-in-the-headlights mindlessness that evolutionism causes. Just think of Richard Dawkins’ sadly proud proclamation after training that the evidence for evolution is “absolutely, totally overwhelming.” He should definitely sue his alma mater because he has no idea what he’s talking about.


thinking skills but instead have a religion forced upon them in a captive-audience setting with no input from their parents at a very early age and are not permitted to question or Fig.4-composite-print-screen-Pshopresolution150_jfeliks.jpgdissent from indoctrination through teachers whom they are required to respect then one can clearly see that the United Sates is in trouble not only as a nation willing to sacrifice the rational autonomy of its young people but as one that is willing to sacrifice scientific objectivity and innovation for the sake of buffoonery that has duped the majority of scientists for 150 years (see Fig. 3 for thought-provoking entertainment on mass delusion).

Right. Depression-depth studies comparing one of the Laetoli footprints from Tanzania (3.6mya, i.e. older than Little Foot), a Homo erectus footprint from Ileret, Kenya (1.5mya), and a modern human footprint all showing their obvious affinity to each other—even across 3.6 million years (Wikimedia Commons). These three show no similarity to the australopithecine foot. Despite 35 years of similar observations, agenda-based college textbooks and museums continue to promote to the public the idea that australopithecine apes walked upright like humans.


Do we want a country in which children attending “science” classes are learning pop science where they are not permitted to hear about, read about or see, conflicting evidence, or are not permitted to discuss errors? (see Figs. 4-6).


Fig. 5. Bottom. In this single frame from Evolution: Laetoli Footprints, Owen Lovejoy—Ardi fiasco proponent—compares a chimpanzee footprint with one of the Laetoli prints. Quoting Lovejoy: Fig.5-composite-print-screen-Pshop-crop-resolution150_reconstruction+9bright.jpg“There’s no better evidence than that provided by a footprint.” The Laetoli prints “give us direct record of how our ancestors walked almost 4 million years ago.”...“When we compare the Laetoli footprint to that of a chimpanzee the difference is immediately obvious. The chimpanzee...still [trick term of evolution rhetoric] has a free great toe and that great toe extends out away from the foot and leaves a very distinct mark.” However, in the Laetoli prints, the “great toe is in line with the rest of the toes… and that’s the kind of fine tuning that you would expect in a biped that had been that way for a very long period of time.” Top. Showing how the chimp foot is indistinguishable from Ardi (see Fig. 6). Significance? Bipedalism expert Lovejoy claims that Ardi walked upright. Also, being misinformed by Johanson’s 35-year takeover of Laetoli, Lovejoy assumed Laetoli was an australopithecine (see Figs. 1 & 2).

When I was growing up I had great teachers who paid attention to kids including those who followed different drummers—and not in the least derogatory ways. In one class, around the 5th grade, I did not wish to participate in the class’ assigned bulletin board project. It was some currently popular topic; I don’t remember what. But my teacher asked what I was interested in working on instead and I said a board about dinosaurs and fossils. To my surprise she said OK as I recall without hesitation and invited anyone else in the class who wished to participate. There were only five or six of us working on that rebel board but the point is that the teacher was not a propagandist pushing a state agenda on kids like they are now. My teacher had enough of a broad view to encourage students to explore where their inspirations took them. I had several other teachers like that in elementary school. And it is teachers like that who helped me retain at least a small degree of faith in academia despite the fabricated propaganda pushed there today.

manity in a scientific way will come from today’s children. If we block their normal development through imposing a state religion and prevent them from learning normal Fig.6-composite-print-screen-Pshop150_jfeliks.jpgcritical thinking skills through assessing all of the evidence on their own like they should in the normal science classroom then we are shortchanging what it means to be human.


Fig. 6. An example of how the entire community of dogmatically-trained evolutionists cannot see the obvious—that A, Ardi, and B, bonobo, go together. Instead, they imagine that A, Ardi, and C humans as represented here by Michelangelos David, go together. (Ardi image by Jay Matternes, Wikimedia Commons; Bonobo photograph courtesy of primatologist and photographer, Frans de Waal; Michelangelo’s David, Wikimedia Commons.) Ardi, a 4.4 million-year old fossil ape was hyped by AAAS, the journal Science, and the general science community as proof of evolution. This is the community trying to force legislation that these ideas be taught in science classrooms as fact while conflicting evidence is blocked. The best proof that scientists such as this are not qualified to assess ‘any’ evidence is from Ann Gibbons’ overview of Ardi in the October 2009 issue of Science. She noted how surprised researchers were that Ardi “doesn’t look much like a chimpanzee, gorilla, or any of our closest living primate relatives.” That shows that these researchers don’t seem to know about apes at all and also that they seem to lack important science skills such as being able to make reasonable comparisons. BTW, Ardi’s strangely-human posture, gesture and gaze are pure science propaganda. See Ardi: How to create a science myth, PCN #3, January-February 2010).


One of the most basic tools of science is objectivity. When objectivity is permanently thrown out the window—such as when anthropology, biology & paleontology dedicated their cores to Darwinism (call it the modern evolutionary synthesis if you like; it doesn’t matter as it all equals a huge convoluted intellectual mess)—na´ve scientists poorly trained in normal evaluative skills began the century-long downhill path of constantly seeing ancestors that are not there (Part 1).

They continue to see lesser-stage evolutionary ancestors even if they’ve been falsified as such. And it doesn’t matter if we’re talking about mammals, dinosaurs, or invertebrates; it is all the same.

If Americans allow science this bad to be taught as fact, forced on people by judges or legislators who cannot think critically and really have no idea what’s going on, then it will only be the beginning with more idiocy to follow in its wake.

A greater loss will be the right for parents to have any say whatsoever in the ’religion’ their children are being taught as ‘fact’ by indoctrinated teachers in schoolrooms across the country. Make no mistake; when a science can’t stand except by appealing to millions of unknown ancestors it is a religion.

So, why are evolutionists not qualified to assess “any” evidence? It is because they lack objectivity which is a mainstay of science. Since Darwin’s proclamation that cognition “must” evolve they have already ruled out the possibility that our ancestors could have been as intelligent as us. This is why they have no choice but to censor empirical evidence of early intelligence or early people in the Americas. This is the problem with allowing an agenda or an ideology to run your science; if the ideology goes, the whole science goes with it.

This world is a place of awe and wonder. If we try and make it anything less by forgetting what science really is, and, instead, force on innocent school children a secular religion as though it were science, not permitting them to think or question something so important as their origins, not permitting them to see or discuss conflicting evidence, then we are not on a scientific path and should call ourselves something other than scientists.


John Feliks has specialized in the study of early human cognition for nearly twenty years demonstrating beyond any reasonable doubt that human cognition does not evolve. His work and empirical geometric evidence has been censored by the evolution community. Earlier, his focus was on the fossil record studying fossils in the field across the U.S. and parts of Canada as well as studying many of the classic texts Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, Index Fossils of North America, etc.). He wrote the article, Ardi: How to Create a Science Myth, and claims that all pre-human hominids or similar claims for transitional invertebrate fossils are equally easy to debunk because when a paradigm is flawed it is not difficult to debunk everything it contains. Feliks encourages students going through standard science training to openly challenge the ideology being forced upon them as fact in the captive audience science classroom with full confidence that evidence is there to support them.
