Today, dear friends, we are going to continue our series on our family tree. I certainly hope this post finds you all doing well! I’m admittedly too excited about today’s topic. Homo Floresiensis is simply put, my favorite member of the tree. There are two reasons for that, how the bones were found, and the obvious bias shown by the evolutionary community. Before we did into what h. Floresiensis is, in case you missed the previous post you can find a link to it here.
Homo Floresiensis is a small group of skeletons found on the Indonesian island of Flore. These were found around the remains of an elephant barbecue! That has to be the oddest setting for paleontologists to discover. These remains were surrounded by advanced tools and what was a pretty epic meal. While not as small as originally touted, though most publications still use the erroneous numbers from early reports, LB1 is still uniquely smaller than the Homo Sapiens fossils it was found with. Oddly, while there have been other fossils found, and reports of their being small as well, I couldn’t find them. Anywhere. No picture, no articles, no labels, nothing. Considering how long ago these fossils were found I find it frustrating that there is no research anywhere on anything but the original fossils.
There are currently major debates happening between secular communities about these smaller bones. Anyone who disagrees with creating a new line in the family tree for floresiensis has actually been refused access to the fossils. Some suggest that LB1 had down syndrome, others malnutrition, or that this is simply a smaller subset of h. Sapiens. There is even some disagreement within the Creationist community. Of course, if you disagree with evolutionism altogether, regardless of your educational achievements, you’ll also be refused access. This, in my opinion, shows the lengths to which evolutionists will go to protect their beliefs. When you’re using speculation and storytelling in place of science, it’s much easier to be refuted. Thus, fewer voices not more will aid their cause.
Either way, the coin is flipped, h. Floresiensis is not a missing link. We’re not surprised by the underhanded behavior by those who push evolution, it is after all what they get paid to do. Next week, Lord willing, we’ll move on to the next supposed ancestor in our family tree. As I said last week, dear ones, this is a subject that we can learn about to segue into the Gospel with. Most people are completely unaware that these fossils are fragmented, debated, and even sometimes tampered with. When we point these things out, we open a dialogue that allows us to share Good News! I pray that this series will continue to encourage and edify you. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
