One of the most famous of all the anthropoids is the Java Ape-Man,

Pithecanthropus erectus (erect ape-man). He was discovered in 1891 by Dr.

Eugene Dubois, a fervent evolutionist. Dr. Dubois' find consisted of a small

piece of the top of a skull, a fragment of a left thigh-bone, and three molar

teeth. Although this evidence is admitedly more substantial, it is still

fragmentary. Furthermore, these remnants were not found together. They were

collected over a range of about 70 feet. Also, they were not discovered at the

same time, but over the span of one year. To further complicate matters, these

remains were found in an old river bed mixed in with the bones of extinct

animals. Despite all of these difficulties, evolutionists calmly assure us

that Java Ape-Man lived about 750,000 years ago.

Although the "experts" would have us believe that these mere fragments

provide sufficient information from which to reconstruct an entire prehistoric

race, certain questions are raised. For instance, how is it possible to

reconstruct so completely with such confidence from such scanty evidence? How

can the "experts" be so certain that all the pieces came from the same animal?

How have these unpetrified bones managed to survive for so long without

disintegrating. And so on. Well, as it turns out, even the "experts" differed

greatly about the identification of these fossil fragments. In fact, of the

twenty-four European scientists who met to evaluate the find, then said they

came from an ape; seven from a man; and seven said they belonged to a no

longer missing link. Controversy and division surrounded the discovery. The

renowned Professor Virchow of Berlin said:

"There is no evidence at all that these bones were parts of the same


Even Dr. Dubois himself later reversed his own opinion. His final

conclusion was that the bones were the remains of some sort of gobbin. But one

would never gather the truly equivocal nature of the world-famous Java Ape-Man

by viewing museum exhibits or reading college textbooks, which are so

dogmatic. The dubious nature of Java Ape-Man (and human evolution as well) is

either conveniently ignored or concealed behind the mask of "scientific fact."

One final note regarding Java Ape-Man. Another Pithecanthropus was found

in Java in 1926. Typically, this discovery was billed as a prodigious

breakthrough, the missing link for sure. It turned out to be the kneebone of

an extinct elephant.
