I assume your title refers to this piece, specifically?

Hi John; we've missed you, too!

So, the Lost World Museum bought the mounted carcass of a mangy coyote, eh? Well, I'm not surprised. Anyone who'd buy into this nonsense will blow the roll on 'most anything. I wonder if they play poker....
Giant Fossil Human Foot Prints: A Colossal Mystery.
In 1976 famed anthropologist Mary Leaky discovered 70 human footprints in stone in Tanzania known as the Laetoli tracks. Leaky felt they looked like they were made by modern human beings, but that created a problem. The depressions left by our ancestors were in a stratum dated at 3.6 million years. No modern human could have laid down that track since we were not around yet according to evolution.

What happens when evidence doesn’t support a theory?



Here is the story of the Laetoli Tracks found by Mary Leakey. And we already know that the Paluxy Tracks are merely dinosaurs. I confess myself slightly surprised that that soggy straw is still being grasped by our creationist brethren.



Thanks for the chuckle!

As far as I know, the Laetoli tracks have always, right from the git-go, been attributed to Australopithecus afarensis , the same species as "Lucy." There is some debate, but no scientists that I know of has considered a modern human as the culprit. And that includes Mary Leakey.

And yet, this is what you put on your site, John.
In spite of Mary Leaky’s declaration of a modern look to the prints, notice what happens when evidence seems to contradict the evolutionary model. Enter the scientists, scrutinizing the prints (as they should) but looking for an alternative explanation – one that will “fit”. Some said the prints resembled a humanoid like creature,. Others thought the prints were from another creature altogether. In the end they concluded that a type of Lucy - half man, half monkey like being were responsible for these tracks. Phew! Evolution was safe again - end of story.

I'm calling this a lie.

Also, please do let me in on the source of your claim that any scientist, who is not a "creation scientist," would say something so stupid as to call Afarensis a "half man, half monkey like being..."

I'm calling that Web site a collection of deliberate, outright frauds, leavened with irrelevant minor curiosities like dead, mangy coyotes. Thanks for keeping us up to date on your shameless life's work, Bibleland.

I need to develop a method of taking dead animals and making creationist hoaxes out of them, to fund the Pleco wants to retire really early charity.

Easy money.

The chupacabra, also known as the "chump-acabra:"




The chupacabra ("goat sucker") is an animal said to be unknown to science and systemically killing animals in places like Puerto Rico, Miami, Nicaragua, Chile, and Mexico. The creature's name originated with the discovery of some dead goats in Puerto Rico with puncture wounds in their necks and their blood allegedly drained. According to UFO Magazine (March/April 1996) there have been more than 2,000 reported cases of animal mutilations in Puerto Rico attributed to the chupacabra.

Forgive me; I'm just bored.....

Imagine that, we made it in Live Science. Must be something scientifically significant here.

Ha! You missed Radford's main point. Whether you have an actual chupacabra or it turns out to be a coyote, doesn't say anything about the correctness of science. So far, there is no evidence for such a creature as a chupacabra, and if that changes, it doesn't mean science was wrong. All it means is there was, up until now, no evidence for the existence of such an animal.

That's how science works.

Of course, I'm putting the good money on coyote, but really, it would be pretty cool to have solid evidence to back up the discovery of an unknown species of mammalian decent. New species are discovered all the time, but this one would be rather more dramatic than most.

John, you parade your ignorance about science proudly. If you are going to do something, might as well do it right, eh?

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Hahahaha. Radford's column is called "Bad Science," John. The adjective is important.
