Notice the three different skulls in the photo. For 20 years the skeleton on the right (displayed in 1915) was displayed without a head, because paleontologists were in disagreement over which head belonged to the creature. Then a camarasoaurus head was installed in 1936, to the creature known as a brontosaurus.
Over 50 years later, paleontologists determined the creature was an apatosaurus body, and the brontosaurus never really existed. They decided that a diplodocus head was more appropriate.
There are only three apatosaurus skulls in existence, and the one pictured from the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History is the best preserved of all, despite looking like it was run over by a tank. How much worse must the others be?
Though the head fiasco was probably an honest mistake rather than an attempt to deceive, it shows how evolutionists jump to conclusions on the most flimsy of evidence. A handful of bones are found, and we are told that is evidence that these creatures roamed the continent.
But that’s only if the evidence can be made to conform to the theory of evolution. If the evidence doesn’t fit, it is swept under the rug or stuffed in a closet as an “anomaly”.
The head was not the only mistake with the apatosaurus, the one at the Yale Museum still has camarasaurus feet!
The 12-00 London Daily Telegraph reported that an ichthyosaurus (above) which has been on display for over 100 years in the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff was taken apart for cleaning that fall. It was then discovered that many of the supposedly real bones were actually PLASTER of Paris covered with several coats of PAINT to make them appear old.
Not only that, but the skeleton was made up from two different specimens. Museum Curator Caroline Butler admitted, “It was an amalgam of two different types of ichthyosaurs, plus a clever attempt at fake parts.”
One wonders how many other skeletons have been plaster fakes over the last century?
Yet we’re supposed to trust these scientists when they tell us we have common ancestors with monkeys, skunks, and rats?
National Geographic, reeling from its own folly in the archaeoraptor hoax, exposed another embarrassing mistake in its 12-00 issue. The triceratops (above) on display in the prestigious Smithsonian Institution for the last 100 years actually contains the bones of 14 different animals, including the feet of a duckbill dinosaur (below).
It is inexcusable than such a mistake could escape detection of our most brilliant paleontologists for an entire century. One wonders how many other such mistakes, or purposeful forgeries, are as yet undetected?
The theory of evolution is filled with such follies. How much credibility can a theory have when such slipshod evidence is used to support it?
