71. African Fossil Sequences Support Punctuated Evolution [Science Frontiers Website]
... been able to sketch for the first evolutionary events on a fine time scale. Williamson underlines three important observations: (1) Species seemed to arise suddenly, as predicted by the "punctuated evolution" model; (2) The formation of new species was accompanied by marked developmental instability in the transitional forms; and (3) All lineages were morphologically stable for long periods-- they did not change form! The biological implications of this important study are summarized in the preceding item. (Williamson, P.G.; "Palaeontological Documentation in Cenozoic Molluscs from Turkana Basin," Nature, 293:437, 1981.) Comment. Evolutionists have often bewailed the obvious lack of transitional forms (missing links) in the stratigraphic record. According to Williamson's results, transitional forms would be few in number and display considerable morphological instability. In essence, this means that missing links may not exist in a practical sense. If this is true, one wonders whether those famous evolutionary family trees in all the textbooks, such as that of the horse, are ...
72. Feathers fly over fossil 'fraud' [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 42: Nov-Dec 1985 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Feathers fly over fossil 'fraud' How many plays on words do you count in the following paragraph? "Britain's own scientific knight-errant, Sir Fred Hoyle, has fallen fowl of the palaeontologists. He has flocked together with those who think that the best-ever missing link, the reptile-bird Archaeopteryx, is a convenient fake. Creationists are understandably in high feather about it all. But now, it looks as though they may be left with egg on their faces.' We first reported on the Archaeopteryx Affair in SF#39. In the present article by Ted Nield, the evolutionists seem to be responding to Hoyle's claim with ridicule and innuendo. Referring to the claim of fossil forgery, which Hoyle based on photos taken with a low-angle flash and EN100 film, Nield wonders why it was published in the British Journal of Photography instead of Nature or Science implying that Hoyle's group didn't dare submit their report to high-class journals! ...
73. Now, It's Comet Showers That Did It [Science Frontiers Website]
... that did it The impact/extinction controvery still rages. A careful evaluation of paleontological evidence has persuaded catas trophists to think in terms of comet showers spread out over a few million years, rather than a single impact per extinction. This short abstract from a Nature article says it all: "If at least some mass extinctions are caused by impacts, why do they extend over intervals of one to three million years and have a partly stepwise character? The solution may be provided by multiple cometary impacts. Astronomical, geological and palaeontological evidence is consistent with a causal connection between comet showers, clusters of impact events and stepwise mass exi tinctions, but it is too early to tell how pervasive this relationship may be." (Hut, Piet, et al; "Comet Showers as a Cause of Mass Extinctions," Nature, 329:118, 1987.) Comment. In other words, the nature of astronomical catastrophism is still up in the air! But, bear in mind that a mere decade ago such a paper would have to look ...
74. Now It's Greece! [Science Frontiers Website]
... ONLINE No. 68: Mar-Apr 1990 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Now it's greece! The general consensus is that modern humans first emerged in Africa. This assertion was challenged in SF#66, where an origin in southeast Asia was championed. Now, it's Greece! "The immediate ancestors to the human family- the hominids- might have been living in Greece, rather than Afica, some 10 million years ago in the late Miocene, according to the French palaeontologist Luis de Bonis. "In September 1989, de Bonis and George Koufos of the University of Thessaloniki discovered the fossilized face of an ape-like creature, Ourano pithecus, at a site in the Valley of Rain, 40 kilometres northwest of Thessaloniki. Although the fossil has not yet reached the scientific press, de Bonis has publically described it as a possible precursor of the earliest known hominid species, Australopithecus afarensis, from Africa 3.5 million years ago." (Lewin, Roger; "Humans May Have Come from Greece, Not ...

76. Evolution [Alternative Science Website]
... of around 250,000 years. This finding fundamentally contradicts the belief of anthropology not only in the New World but regarding the whole history of mankind. People capable of making the kind of stone tools found at Hueyatlaco are thought not to have come into existence until around 100,000 years ago, in Africa. Steen-McIntyre's findings were first ridiculed and then quietly forgotten about. Advanced palaeolithic and neolithic flake tools have been found in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, New Mexico, California, Wyoming, and elsewhere by professional geologists and palaeontologists. All have been subjected to campaigns of denigration and ridicule and the finds relegated to museum basements or store rooms. In some cases (Hueyatlaco for instance) state or government authorities will no longer grant permission for investigators to visit these sites-- presumably in case they make any more embarrassing scientific discoveries.

Darwin's Finches Writer Jonathan Weiner, in his book The Beak of the Finch, claims Darwin's finches demonstrate 'evolution in real time'- a very strong claim. Closer examination of ...

... Bones of Contention (sorry, I don't have the ISBN number). In it he has a couple of chapters describing the entire KBS tuff controversy. It took almost 10 years for this one to work itself out to where a reasonable consensus was achieved. In these chapters lewin describes the various dating procedures that were used, and how and why they obtained anomalous results. (Despite the title, this book is not a creationist work. Roger Lewin has co-authored several books with Richard Leakey, as well as other books on palaeontology and human origins.) cheers, Dan ...

... the flesh of these animals was well preserved enough to be edible. One of the references it cited was Frozen Fauna of the Mammoth Stepps by R. Dale Guthrie. While I was unable to obtain this source on short notice I was able to get a copy of a review of this book. Interestingly, at the end of the review (by S. David Webb from the Florida Museum of Natural History) is the following quote. "At the end of the Blue Babe project, the latter two (two Finnish palaeontologists) enjoyed a bison stew in Fairbanks, despite its 'strong Pleistocene aroma.'" ...
79. Age of Mankind [Alternative Science Website]
... paper was published in Quaternary Research in 1981, but the findings at Hueyatlaco have been ignored since. If Steen-McIntyre's discovery was an isolated incident, then one might be cautious in accepting a single piece of data that contradicts the whole foundations of anthropology. But far from being isolated it is one of literally scores of such finds, all of which have recieved the same treatment. Advanced palaeolithic and neolithic flake tools have been found in Argentina, Canada, Mexico, New Mexico, California, Wyoming, and elsewhere by professional geologists and palaeontologists. All have been subjected to campaigns of denigration and ridicule and the finds relegated to museum basements or store rooms. In some cases (Hueyatlaco for instance) state or government authorities will no longer grant permission for investigators to visit these sites-- presumably in case they make any more embarrassing scientific discoveries.____ The Alternative Science Website Copyright Richard Milton© 1994-2006¦ All Rights Reserved¦ Home¦ About Me¦ Site Map[ Awards ...
80. Reviews [Alternative Science Website]
... simply convinced that evolution is scientifically unsupportable." Simon Ladd Alpha Magazine "Charles Darwin? Outmoded. Evolution? A myth. Not the usual assertions of a fundamentalist from the bible belt, but those of a disciple of the scientific method. And based on scientific arguments." [Translation Enrico Verdecchia Panorama "Richard Milton... presents a vigorous refutation of neo- Darwinism based entirely on the evidence of science." "Backed by his experience as engineer and science journalist, and inspired by an interest in geology and palaeontology, he explains his doubts and difficulties with the general theory of evolution in a lucid, non-technical and very readable style." Anthony Nevard Daylight "There are three main reasons that "Shattering the Myths of Darwinism" seems poised to make unprecedented inroads into the Darwinist camp. First, Milton makes an absolutely devastating case, leaving not a stone upon a stone of the received evolutionist credo. Secondly, he puts his case against evolution with the calmness and confidence of a man who is justifiably sure of his facts and with ...
