Sorry, Marksman, but the majority of the above is just creationist propaganda. Nebraska Man was not taken seriously for long if at all and after 35 years extensive evolution reading, I had never even heard of it until Topix. As it is, evolutionary predictions are now backed by scores of hominid fossil finds, and there is a lot more than a tooth or two in most cases.<quoted text>"Many authorities gave Osborn their support. Based on this single tooth, reconstructions of the Nebraska man's head and body were drawn. Moreover, Nebraska man was even pictured along with his wife and children, as a whole family in a natural setting.
All of these scenarios were developed from just one tooth. Evolutionist circles placed such faith in this "ghost man" that when a researcher named William Bryan opposed these biased conclusions relying on a single tooth, he was harshly criticised.
In 1927, other parts of the skeleton were also found. According to these newly discovered pieces, the tooth belonged neither to a man nor to an ape. It was realised that it belonged to an extinct species of wild American pig called Prosthennops. William Gregory entitled the article published in Science in which he announced the truth, "Hesperopithecus: Apparently Not an ape Nor a man. Then all the drawings of Hesperopithecus haroldcooki and his "family" were hurriedly removed from evolutionary literature."
<quoted text>"A notable case of a scientists using fraudulent material to promote the theory of evolution was the work of German scientist and atheist Ernst Haeckel. Noted evolutionist Stephen Gould wrote the following regarding Ernst Haeckel's work in a March 2000 issue of Natural History:
"Haeckel’s forceful, eminently comprehensible, if not always accurate, books appeared in all major languages and surely exerted more influence than the works of any other scientist, including Darwin…in convincing people throughout the world about the validity of evolution... Haeckel had exaggerated the similarities [between embryos of different species] by idealizations and omissions. He also, in some cases — in a procedure that can only be called fraudulent — simply copied the same figure over and over again.…Haeckel’s drawings never fooled expert embryologists, who recognized his fudgings right from the start. Haeckel’s drawings, despite their noted inaccuracies, entered into the most impenetrable and permanent of all quasi-scientific literatures: standard student textbooks of biology... Once ensconced in textbooks, misinformation becomes cocooned and effectively permanent, because…textbooks copy from previous texts....[W]e do, I think, have the right to be both astonished and ashamed by the century of mindless recycling that has led to the persistence of these drawings in a large number, if not a majority, of modern textbooks!"
As for Haeckel, again, claiming he was ever more influential than Darwin or the fossil record is just building a very fake straw man. At best Heackel was only ever supplementary evidence for evolution. Anyway, he was not totally wrong. Embryology still sees the obvious evolutionary parallels in embryonic development that is best explained by the adaptation of an original "fish base" with elaborations occurring later. As Darwin, by the way, predicted, before Haeckel ever did a thing.
Frauds and errors get outed by the process. The fact that your system has no method of fraud detection accounts for millions of Muslims and Mormons running around, for starters.
