THE BISHOP'S CORNER
In a surprisingly candid article at the pro-evolution website ScienceDaily, one scientist admits that most fossil finds include a generous amount of hype.
Dr. James Tarver from the University of Bristol noted that "human fossils are very rare, and they are costly to recover because of the time involved and their often remote locations." Because of this, he said, "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, don't believe the hype you hear from scientists. The article doesn't mean, though, that Dr. Tarver is backing away from evolution. Far from it. The ScienceDaily article goes on to say that the study – and I quote – "suggests most fossil discoveries do not make a huge difference, confirming, not contradicting our understanding of evolutionary history."
Such a statement clearly 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? Sometimes they come up with imaginative explanations to make the fossil fit their beliefs. Or even worse, they sweep the evidence under the rug – like what they've done with dinosaur bones containing soft tissues and blood cells.
The lesson to be learned – don't fall for evolutionary hype … and never resort to using hype yourself. The truth can stand on its own.
