Evolutionists Admit Hype!

"Palaeontologists are forever claiming that their latest fossil discovery will 'rewrite evolutionary history.' Is this just boasting or does our 'knowledge' of evolution radically change every time we find a new fossil?"

So begins a surprisingly candid article posted at the ScienceDaily website on September 1. The article – "Evolution Rewritten, Again and Again" – answers this question by admitting that most fossil finds include a generous amount of hype. According to Dr. James Tarver, leader of a study at the University of Bristol: "Human fossils are very rare, and they are costly to recover because of the time involved and their often remote locations. Scientists may be pushed by their sponsors, or by news reporters, to exaggerate the importance of their new find and make claims that 'this new species completely changes our understanding'."

In other words, the reports are usually exaggerated … just as Creation Moments has been saying all along. This is not to say, however, that evolutionary scientists are backing away from evolution. Far from it. The ScienceDaily article goes on to say: "Their study, which is published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, suggests most fossil discoveries do not make a huge difference, confirming, not contradicting our understanding of evolutionary history."

To say that "most fossil discoveries" confirm "our understanding of evolutionary history" demonstrates that scientists interpret fossils within their evolutionary framework, finding what they expect to find.

So what do they do when they find a fossil that flat-out contradicts Darwinism? No problem! They come up with imaginative explanations to make it fit into their evolutionary philosophy … or they just sweep it under the rug – like what they did with the millions of fossils known as the Cambrian explosion. To this day, the Cambrian explosion remains one of the most powerful objections that can be made against Darwin's theory of evolution.

And that's not a lot of hype.
