Why the Scientific Literature Refutes All Claimed Hominins
John M. Wynne
This short, 105-page book uses the scientific literature to show that there is no viable evidence to support the claim that mankind (Homo sapiens) descended from an ape-like ancestor. Leading claimed transitional forms from “Ardi” to “Zing” are addressed and the supposed independent confirmation of the fossils by molecular clock studies is also critically evaluated.
With hundreds of references, this book will satisfy the scientific-minded reader yet it will also appeal to those seeking an introductory narrative about the compli- cated topic of the fossil evidence for human evolution.
This book contains photos of many claimed hominins and is a great resource for parents, teachers, and clergy. It is also ideal for group studies and will help develop critical thinking skills.
