More reasons paleoanthropology has a bad reputation and ID continues its advance

Not long ago an anthropologist resigned in ‘dating disaster’. Now we learn world famous paleoantrhopologist Leakey Manipulated His Apelike Ã¢â‚¬Å“Skull 1470Ã¢â‚¬Â to Look Human .
Dr. Leakey produced a reconstruction that could not have existed in real life….
letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s see if Leakey will recant. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s see if the textbook publishers will fix the mistake. His Skull 1470 raised quite a stir at the time and gained Leakey international fame. Now, it comes out that LeakeyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s personal bias dictated how he put the puzzle pieces of bone together. How much does this go on in the dubious practice of paleoanthropology? What other instances are out there right now with built-in bias? Here it is 25 years after the discovery before the truth comes out. Remember this next time this crowd trumpets some new missing link. TodayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kids may not know itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s phony baloney till 2032.
Nick Matzke of the NCSE and TalkOrigins trumpeted skull 1470 against the ID community (see : Icon of Obfuscation). But this new development vindicates Jonathan Wells and pro-ID anthropologist Sigrid Hartwig-Scherer who participated in the legendary Mere Creation Conference.
