Kanapoi Elbow Fossil Fraud,
The best example of how evolutionists interpret fossils according to their own preconceptionsis a fossilized elbow bone found in the Kenyan region of Kanapoi. This fossil, displayed in theKenya National Museum – East Rudolf under the number KP 271, consists of a part of the upper arm bone near the elbow. Unearthed in 1965 by Bryon Patterson of Harvard University, it has beenexceedingly well preserved. The latest tests carried out by evolutionists have shown it to be around4.5 million years old.
The fossil is therefore known as the oldest hominid fossil discovered to date.In 1967, the researchers Bryan Patterson and W.W. Howells joined forces to describe KP 271.They suggested that the fossil’s anatomy was similar to that of human beings and that it belonged to
. Howells and his assistant Patterson announced the report regarding their researchin the 7 April, 1967 edition of
magazine, in which they stated:In these diagnostic measurements, Kanapoi Hominoid 1 [the original name given to the fossil]is strikingly close to the means of the human sample.
Though admitting the close resemblance to the bone of a present-day human, Howells andPatterson still maintained that the fossil belonged to
, because to them, it wasunacceptable that such an old fossil could belong to
.But subsequently, studies performed by other researchers using computers again revealed thatthe fossil KP271 was identical to a human bone. As the result of his computer-assisted research,Henry M. McHenry of the University of California published an article in 1975:The results show that the Kanapoi specimen, which is 4 to 4.5 million years old, isindistinguishable from modern
After this, various other researchers (including David Pilbeam and Brigitte Senut) have also performed experiments and comparative studies proving that the bone is identical to H. sapiens. Yetdespite all the evidence, even the evolutionists who carried out all this research were unable toadmit, on account of their own preconceptions, that this fossil could belong to H. sapiens.
In Kenya, a team led by Meave Leakey discovered a fossilized skull that was referred to as“Flat-faced Man” because of the shape of its facial bones. The fossil was given the scientific nameof
. This 3.5 million-year-old fossil overturned evolutionists’ imaginaryevolutionary scenarios because some extinct ape species (such as “Lucy”) that lived after
were more primitive than it according to evolutionist criteria.
.)In fact, when one looks at all of the fossils discovered to date, it becomes clear that there is noevolutionary progression, beginning from a common ancestor and slowly turning into apes and present day man.Daniel E. Lieberman of Harvard University’s Anthropology Department commented on
in an article in
magazine:The evolutionary history of humans is complex and unresolved. It now looks set to be throwninto further confusion by the discovery of another species and genus, dated to 3.5 million years ago.. . The nature of
raises all kinds of questions, about human evolution ingeneral and the behaviour of this species in particular. Why, for example, does it have the unusual
