This, from SBS World News, a usually relatively reliable public news service in Australia, on their report on the new hominid.
I sent them this message:
I have to criticise the moronic commentary in the World News tonight –
No, the lack of transitional fossils hasn’t been a problem for evolutionary theory since the turn of the 20th century, well over a century ago
No, there is no “missing link” – that relies upon a view of evolution that Darwin replaced
I fear that your reporter or producer relied upon creationist websites. There are lots of people who study the history and theory of biology – couldn’t you have at least tried to find someone to tell you what to say?
The repost is about on a level with the ones here in Germany. 🙁
That should read; The report…
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.”
love that quote
The Disinformation Institute would have been proud to have turned out that report. Or did they!
