18: “There are scores of fake fossils out there, and they have cast a dark shadow over the whole field. When you go to these fossil shows, it’s difficult to tell which ones are fakes and which ones are not.” - Lee Strobel

I have a question about this one; am I reeeeally dumb, or is there any meaning to this quote besides just exactly what it says? I guess I was looking for some parallel or something (a crystal ball under a bush perhaps :) ) and I puzzled over it all day but did not come up with anything. Am I missing something?

*sheepish*

Hillary: I don't pretend to put words in Mr. Strobel's mouth, but my answer to your question would be...evolutionists commonly hold up bones or fossils, supposedly belonging to half man/half ape creatures, as missing links between man and its Ape ancestors, thus proving that man evolved from Apes. One such bone, I believe a jawbone or piece of a jaw discovered in Europe, was named Lucy (I have trouble keeping the names straight, so that may be the wrong name) and an entire creature was reconstructed from this one bone. However, it was later officially proved that the bone actually belonged to a pig, not a "missing link." "Lucy" was "taught" as absolute fact in things like school text books, though, long after Lucy was proven to be false or a hoax.

Other bones with similar stories have been discovered, held up as proof of evolution, then credibly if not, in some cases, absolutely disproven (one other such bone was, I believe, proven to be a diseased and deformed human); yet, the pro-evolution establishment still uses many of them as absolute proof of evolution. This abuse of fact naturally leads a clear thinking person to question the validity of legitemate evidence that should be seriously considered...

I think you get my point now, so I'll shut up. :-)

Ok ok, I think it makes a tad bit more sense now. Or at least what you said makes sense, and what he said does too. Now if I can reconcile them in my mind we shall all be happy!

Thank you for taking the time to 'thoroughly' explain it. :P
