Many times we hear about supposed “missing links,” especially the ones between apes or ape-like creatures and humans. Lubenow examines these claims in detail and distinguishes between fact and evolutionary speculation.n tracing the alleged evolution of humans from primate ancestors, palaeoanthropologists have been frustrated by the existence of two extensive gaps In the fossil record.Often we hear claims that various fossils are of ancient humans that lived millions of years ago. The first gap, known as the hominoid gap, goes from 32 to 22 million years ago on the evolutionary time-scale.
The second gap, known as the hominid gap, extends from 14 to 4.5 million years ago.
This second period is equally critical for evolutionary theory because it is the time when the ancestors of the australopithecine and human group were allegedly diverging from the ancestors of the African apes, especially the chimpanzees.
This period is also devoid of any relevant fossil material, except for a few fossil scraps too fragmentary for diagnosis.
Thus, the recent news that the hominid 'missing link' has been discovered was greeted with great exuberance by the evolutionist community.
But they do let us know something about the past, and, for me, they are evidence that our Bible is absolutely correct in what it is telling us about the past.
Fossils show us where animals lived and what size they were.It is naturally unstable and so it will spontaneously decay back into N-14 after a period of time.It takes about 5,730 years for half of a sample of radiocarbon to decay back into nitrogen.First we need to know about the different kinds of fossils and how they form. That means rock layered by water and hardened from time, pressure and, often drainage, so it dries out.A few fossils are found in old volcanic ash layers. This is how carbon dating works: Carbon is a naturally abundant element found in the atmosphere, in the earth, in the oceans, and in every living creature.
