if evolutionists are unsuccessful in finding scientific evidence
to shore up their theories, they are very successful at one thing:
propaganda. The most important elements of this propaganda are the
false drawings and designs known as "reconstructions."
Reconstruction can be explained as drawing a
picture or constructing a model of a living thing based on a single
bone that has been unearthed. The "ape-men" we see in
newspapers, magazines, or films are all reconstructions.
sketches of evolutionists depict imaginary creatures even
in their social setting. Based on no evidence, these illustrations
are nothing but propaganda tools.
The important thing here is how scientific these
drawings are. Since fossils are usually disordered and incomplete,
any conjecture based on them is likely to be totally imaginative.
As a matter of fact, the reconstructions made by evolutionists based
on the fossil remains are prepared precisely to suit the purposes
of the evolutionary thesis.
At this point, we have to highlight a particular
point: studies based on bone remains cannot reveal the "soft
tissues" of a creature. The hair, skin, nose, ears, lips, or
other facial features of a living thing cannot be determined from
its bone remains. It is very easy for someone committed to evolution
to devise an imaginary creature by shaping these soft tissues as
he wishes. Earnest A. Hooton from Harvard University, explains the
situation like this:
BE CAREFUL WITH THE SOFT
Soft tissues like the eye,
nose, ear, skin, hair leave no clues in the fossil record.
Yet evolutionists shape these tissues as they wish in the
reconstructions they fabricate in their workshops and produce
"half-ape half-man" creatures as we see here.
To attempt to restore the soft parts is an even
more hazardous undertaking. The lips, the eyes, the ears, and the
nasal tip leave no clues on the underlying bony parts. You can with
equal facility model on a Neanderthaloid skull the features of a
chimpanzee or the lineaments of a philosopher. These alleged restorations
of ancient types of man have very little if any scientific value
and are likely only to mislead the public… So put not your trust
THE THREE FACES OF ZINJANTHROPUS
Evolutionists go so far
in imaginary drawings that they even ascribe different faces
to the same skull. The three different reconstructed drawings
made for the fossil named Australopithecus robustus (Zinjanthropus)
is an example of this.
Evolutionists animate the creatures that exist
only in their imagination by using the method of "reconstruction"
and present them to people as if they are "their ancestors".
When they are unable to find the "half-man half-ape" creatures
in the fossil record, they prefer to deceive the public with false
