Maybe because they are mammals and linger in the water most of their lives? But, otherwise they are strikingly impossibly different. Other coastal animals, that are now extinct, are also cited, but none of them could survive a day or two at sea.

A Striking Absence of Transitions

And, whales never had scales. No one knows how blow holes came about, certainly not by small successive steps, or how the internal lungs became connected up to these holes in a way that prevents drowning. Or, how a massive communication center, found in their heads, came about. Or, how the ability to depressurize body segments during deep dives evolved. Calves are born tail first they cannot go head first in case the process is too slow and these newborns must rise to the surface immediately for air or else they will drown.

The ability to swim must be present from the beginning. Trial and error would never have worked. Whales are not the only misfit to smooth transitions, just the largest. The number of exceptions may actually be equal to the number of species on this planet. Standouts are kangaroos, woodpeckers, platypuses, giraffes, butterflies, octopuses, skunks, bombardier beetles, the red tide, dolphins, fireflies, tardigrades, sloths, and all micro-organisms. Maybe viruses, too. Something besides unguided evolution is going on. In actuality, all living organisms are likely exceptions.

The same goes for pet dogs to guard dogs. Constructive questions and courteous comments will be appreciated. A Striking Absence of Transitions Many modern authorities continue to use fossils as proof of evolution, chronologically lining up those which appear similar, yet the gaps have only grown more glaring with time.

Not the Only Misfit Whales are not the only misfit to smooth transitions, just the largest. An incomprehensibly intelligent engineer and designer must be responsible. On inquiry he was "astonished" to learn that they had been dug from a gravel bed on the farm.

Dawson vaguely fixes the time of his Sherlock Holmes-like observation and the "astonishment" that followed as "several years ago. Conan Doyle to the extraordinary detective whose powers of deduction have solved so many baffling mysteries, were still stirring the imagination of romancers the world over. At any rate, "shortly afterwards" Mr. Charles Dawson visited the place and found two laborers digging gravel. He asked them if they had found any [5] bones or other fossils. They had not done so. He urged them to preserve anything they might find in the future.

Upon one of his "subsequent" visits a laborer handed him a small portion of unusually thick human parietal bone that looked as if it might be , years old. Note the use of the word "human. Dawson immediately made a search but could find nothing more. It was not until "some years later," in the autumn of , on another visit to the spot, that he picked up another and larger piece of bone belonging to the frontal region of a skull, including a portion of the ridge extending over the left eyebrow. Dawson took the bones to Dr. Smith Woodward of the British Museum.

There was much talk. Then several laborers were employed to make a systematic search among the spoils heaps and gravel. Every particle of the gravel in the pit was sifted. The total results consisted of a piece of a jaw bone, another small piece of occipital bone from the skull, and a canine tooth. With these fragments, which a juggler could conceal in the palm of one hand, the scientists "reconstructed" the Piltdown man, and at once proclaimed it to be a new genus which they proceeded to call Eoanthropus or "Dawn Man," naming the species "Dawsoni" in honor of the discoverer.

To make the thing as sensational as possible it was necessary to reconstruct very closely along ape lines, for the nearer the "reconstruction" could be pushed toward the brute, the more convincing would it be as "scientific evidence" in support of the "missing link" theory. It wouldn't do to let the brain-pan of the Piltdown man hold too much brain matter.

Smith Woodward and Mr. Charles Dawson made their calculations and gave to their Piltdown man a brain capacity very accurately and very precisely fixed at c. It suited all the requirements exactly. In August, , the British Association for the Ad-vancement of Science discussed the Piltdown frag-ments which by this time included two molar teeth and two nasal bones. Professor Keith dem-onstrated that the brain capacity of the Piltdown skull was nearer c.

New "reconstructions," based on this exposure, by Professor McGregor and Professor Woodward have resulted in the admission, as reported by Dr. Piltdown's cranium is now estimated at approximately c.

It began to appear that the "human" touch, so deftly applied when the thing was first described, was going to re-act with unexpected embarrassment. The figures were not as close to as might be desired. They [7] were entirely too far apart for the comfort of a "half-man, half-ape. The original reconstructors not only wanted a near-ape skull which has now, alas, vanished in their hands, but they also wanted an ape-like face and jaw. So they put their solitary canine tooth on the right side of the lower jaw at an angle suggestive of the ape. This also suited the requirements exactly.

But along came Professor W. Gregory and Professor G.

Miller, writing respectively in the Am. The scientists who couldn't properly fix the position of the only canine tooth in their possession were nevertheless very definite in fixing the stratified gravel of the Piltdown fragments as "in the main composed of Pliocene drift, probably reconstructed in the Pleistocene epoch.

But, along came Professor W. Boyd Dawkins showing that the time could not be earlier than Pleistocene, because of the presence in the Piltdown deposits of an antler of red deer absolutely unknown in the Pliocene of Europe but abundant in the Pleistocene and later periods. This was too bad entirely, for it necessitated another reconstruction in which several hundred thousand years had to be knocked off the alleged age of Mr. Not only have the scientists themselves objected to the arbitrary, dogmatic and wholly unwarranted reconstruction of the Piltdown man on the ground that [8] the teeth do not belong at all to the same skull, but that the jaw itself could not in any way be associated with the skull.

https://tempdadilot.tk Using the words of Professor Ales Hrdlicka from the Smithsonian report for , pp. He says: "The most important development in the study of the Piltdown remains is the recent well documented objection by Professor Gerrit S. Miller of the United States National Museum to the classing together of the lower jaw and the canine with the cranium. According to Miller, who had ample anthropoid as well as human material for comparison, the jaw and tooth belong to a fossil chimpanzee. This is a heart-breaking admission coming, as it does, from a scientist as eminent as Miller, and even more heart-breaking is the admission made by Hrdlicka himself, when he urges that none of the conclusions regarding the Piltdown man should be accepted, and that all hypotheses relating to it must be regarded as more or less premature.

Here we have a skull with a capacity, now admitted by Professor Henry Fairfield Osborn himself, of c. The missing-link was skidding clumsily. No wonder the great German anatomist, G. Schwalbe, so frequently quoted by Professor Osborn, had to abandon the "missing link" opinion so picturesquely and noisily voiced as a scientific fact when he declared that "the proper restoration of the Piltdown fragments would make them belong not to any preceding stage of man, but to a well developed, good sized Homo sapiens, the true man of today.

Before the transfer of the misused canine from the lower jaw, where it had no business, to the upper jaw, where it belonged, the scientists laid special emphasis on that all-important canine tooth. It justified them in asserting that "the skull represented an entirely new type of man in the making" and upon this plan of wholly gratuitous invention they established their ape-like jaw and ape-like face crowned with a human skull.

Moreover, they were dealing with the mandible of a chimpanzee which, according to the evidence, never lived in the British Isles in any age, although when one was wanted, to fit a human skull, it was not difficult to find it in an English gravel bed!
