Human evolution is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated by science. But the second biggest is Piltdown Man. Any time someone brings up the genetic similarities between species, transitional fossils, embryonic development, hemoglobin mutation rates and anything else in the supposed “mountain of evidence” for evolution, just remind them of good ol’ Piltdown Man.
For those not familiar, Piltdown Man was a hominid fossil discovered shortly after Java Man and Neanderthal Man, and was a fraudulent fabrication. It was in fact a human skull from the middle ages attached to an ape’s jawbone. And some people believed it was real for a little while! That is really the final nail in the coffin for evolution. If some people over a hundred years ago could be temporarily fooled, then how can we accept the consensus of millions of modern scientists with more background knowledge and testing equipment?
The problem with using Piltdown Man to discredit evil-lution, is that most people don’t remember it. It happened a long time ago and the timespan when scientists were fooled was very brief. Most people think it is irrelevant to modern evolutionary theory. So we have to keep on reminding them. Each day, I stand next to the bum on my street corner who is constantly shouting “9/11 was an inside job!” and then I shout “Piltdown Man is a hoax!” Most say “What’s a Piltdown Man?” or “Yeah, so?” everyone leaves with this really incredulous look on their faces, but they are definitely being converted to Christ’s love on the inside.
The other thing I do to make sure people don’t forget Piltdown Man is I wear a shirt that says, “Piltdown Man: Never Forget.” I also make new Piltdown Man skulls to fool scientists. I leave them in places likely to be found by greedy, lying scientists such as the Smithsonian Institute. No one has fallen for it yet, but they will! When they do that will prove evolution wrong and then everyone will become a 6-8 day biblical creationist.
By the way, don’t listen to the people in this video. They are clearly lying their asses off.
