Another intermediate fossil deception has been added to the scientific literature

Evolutionist scientists the other day introduced the public to a new supposed intermediate fossil: Archicebus achilles

This fossil, about the size of a squirrel and dating back 55 million years, is a member of the tarsier family living today. Evolutionist scientists who examined the fossil for 10 years recently described this organism, on the basis of a minor variation in the heel and feet bones, as a supposed intermediate form between humans and primates. The fact is, however, that this fossil bears the same characteristics as tarsier primates living in Southeast Asia today. The fossil skull, teeth, jointed bones and skeletal structure are identical to those of present-day tarsiers.

The only difference in this 55-million-year-old fossil is in the heel and foot bones. The heel and foot  bones are identical to those of present-day marmosets, or tarsiers.

When we examine the fossil, we encounter a perfect living thing, from its skull to its feet. During their examinations lasting 10 years, scientists used advanced imaging techniques to investigate the skeletal structure buried inside the fossil in great detail. This examination revealed that every part of this animal functioned perfectly. No non-functioning or semi-functioning part was encountered. Every part of this excellently preserved fossil, from its head to its feet, was flawless. However, evolutionist scientists have resorted to the usual techniques and used the fact that this fossil possessed features from two different life forms to portray it as supposed evidence for evolution. However, this is totally misleading because mosaic creatures, such as the  Platypus that has both reptilian and mammalian  characteristics, are living today. These are not intermediate forms, however, but unique species. 

  The Platypus  is a mosaic animal with both reptilian and mammalian characteristics.

Archicebus achilles is not a mosaic life form, however, because this fossil possesses entirely mammalian features. In other words, it is not a supposed intermediate form as evolutionists are claiming.

Millions of species of living things  have existed and subsequently become extinct. Scientists estimate that 99.8% of the species that once existed have since gone extinct. The way that scientists describe fossils they discover as supposed intermediate forms, rather than classifying them as extinct, when the level of extinct species approaches 100%, is completely  fraudulent.

Archicebus achilles is a species with a perfectly functioning body, that lived once in the past but has since gone extinct. All living things of which fossil remains exist but which are not living today are extinct species. For example, the moa, a bird unique to New Zealand, went extinct sometime in the 1400s. However, if evolutionists had found these fossils now they would doubtless, as they do with fossils of all extinct life forms, have referred to the moa as a supposed intermediate form between dinosaurs and birds because the moa was a wingless, flightless bird.

Evolutionists perpetrated the same ruse with the Coelacanth fossil. When they first found  Coelacanth fossils  they claimed, on the basis of the bony structure in its fins, that it was an intermediate life form between fish and reptiles. However, the discovery of a living Coelacanth, previously thought to be extinct, in South Africa instantly refuted this evolutionist trickery. The Coelacanth was not an intermediate form, but a bottom-dwelling fish perfect in all respects.

As with all their other claims about intermediate forms, evolutionists also need to apologize over the fossil Archicebus achilles, which they claim to be a supposed intermediate form between humans and primates.  Once again, evolutionist scientists have evaluated scientific findings in a biased manner and are still trying to impose the idea of evolution.

CNN International, The Telegraph and the Los Angeles Times once again demonstrated their biased and pro-evolution publishing policy with reports adorned with illustration pictures.

CNN International: Ancient primate could be a missing link.

Great Britain’s The Telegraph: Archicebus achilles could be humanity’s earliest primate cousin.

Los Angeles Times: Virtual fossil shows our oldest primate cousin, scientists say.
