To this day, evolutionists will point to the "Lucy" discovery. Lucy is just another fraud in a long list of frauds starting with Piltdown man, then Nebrask man, Java man, Orce man.
Dr. Johanson gave a lecture at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, Nov. 20, 1986, on Lucy and why he thinks she is our ancestor. It included the ideas already mentioned and that Lucys femur and pelvis were more robust than most chimps and therefore, could have walked upright. After the lecture he opened the meeting for questions. The audience of approximately 800 was quiet so some creationists asked questions. Roy Holt asked; How far away from Lucy did you find the knee? (The knee bones were actually discovered about a year earlier than the rest of Lucy). Dr. Johanson answered (reluctantly) about 200 feet lower (!) and two to three kilometers away (about 1.5 miles!)."
Lucy is a fraud. Proven fraud from Dr. Johanson himself. If Lucy was a pre-human, then she was the first suicide bomber, because these bones were scatered everywhere! Notice there's no hands or feet? Pretty convenient, because these body parts would be essential for determining if a creature walks upright or not.
Any evolutionist who still claims that Lucy is credible is either a liar or an ignorant fool. And yet, this fraud is still used in textbooks around the world.
Not only is this extremely newsworthy but it casts a very unflattering light on so many scientists who, uncritically it seems, placed Lucy in the modern human line of descent, you won’t find it widely reported except in the Darwin-denier blogs and websites. This strategy is common when embarrassing mistakes are found in widely accepted evolutionary dogma. Keep it mum and let the embarrassing news become common knowledge over a long span of time. Meanwhile children are still taught a fraud in schools around the world. What a shameful mob the evolutionists are!
