A skull fossil of Australopithecus bosei
species coded as OH-5
Creatures, named Australopithecus by evolutionists,
are actually nothing but an extinct ape species…
Australopithecus means "southern ape".
Falling into different categories, all Australopithecus species
are extinct apes that resemble the apes of today. Their cranial
capacities are the same, or smaller than the chimpanzees of our
day. There are projecting parts in their hands and feet which they
used to climb trees, just like today's chimpanzees, and their feet
have grasping abilities to hold on to the branches. Many characteristics
such as the closeness of the eyes, sharp molar teeth, mandibular
structure, long arms, short legs, are evidence of these creatures
being no different from today's apes.
Evolutionists claim that although the Australopithecus
species have the anatomy of an ape, they walked upright like humans.
DART AND HIS CHILD
The first Australopithecus fossil was
discovered by evolutionist palaeontologist Raymond Dart.
The first specimen discovered by Dart was named the "Taung
Child". Dart had suggested that this fossil, which belonged
to a very young individual, had "human-like" features. Discoveries
that were made in the following years, however, showed that
the Australopithecus species definitely had an ape's face.
research done on various Australopithecus specimens by two world-renowned
anatomists from England and the USA, namely, Lord Solly Zuckerman
and Prof. Charles Oxnard, has shown that these creatures were not
bipedal and had the same sort of movement as today's apes.
Scientific findings countered the evolutionist propositions
on "Lucy", the most famous specimen of the Australopithecus
species. The well-known French science journal, Science et
Vie, admitted this fact in its February 1999 issue with the
headline "Farewell Lucy" (Adieu Lucy) and the statement that
Australopithecus could not be considered the ancestor of man.
Having studied the bones of these fossils for
a period of 15 years, with funding from the British government,
Lord Zuckerman and his team of 5 specialists reached the conclusion
– although Zuckerman was an evolutionist himself – that Australopithecines
were only an ordinary ape species and were definitely not bipedal.48
Correspondingly, Oxnard, who is also an evolutionist, also likened
the skeletal structure of Australopithecus to that of modern orang-utans.49
The detailed analyses conducted by the American
anthropologist Holly Smith in 1994 on the teeth of Australopithecus
indicated that Australopithecus was an ape species.50
AUSTRALOPITHECUS AND CHIMPANZEE
The skull of the Australopithecus aferensis
and that of the modern chimpanzee are very similar to each
other. This similarity verifies that creatures falling into
the Australopithecus classification are an ape species that
have nothing to do with humans.
Within the same year, Fred Spoor, Bernard Wood
and Frans Zonneveld, all specialists on anatomy, reached the same
conclusion through a totally different method. This method was based
on the comparative analysis of the semi-circular canals in the inner
ear of humans and apes which provided for sustaining balance. The
inner ear canals of all Australopithecus specimens analysed by Spoor,
Wood and Zonneveld were the same as those of modern apes.51
This finding once more showed that the Australopithecus species
is a species similar to modern apes.
