Another missing link!

The Real Missing Link

Another breathless announcement is appearing in the U.K. Telegraph announcing that the missing link between apes and people has been found.  As if there were only one.  How many times have we heard this, anyhow?  And besides, the missing link was identified back in the 1960s and seen weekly by millions.  And besides that besides, the supposed link between apes and humans is nowhere near the most important link for evolutionary scientists to prove.  To really accept the theory, we’d need to see some links between, for example, something and nothing, or between matter and life.

The behavior of the scientists who have found the latest skeleton is intriguing.  They appear to be trying to be set the stage for a big media shazam moment.  We don’t read of the painstaking process of peer review in established journals and so forth.  The article says only a “select  few” scientists have been permitted to even see this thing.  Gee… don’t you wonder why such a great discovery would need to be kept secret and protected from critical examination?  Doesn’t science thrive on challenge?  Don’t the truly great scientists spend most of their time trying to prove themselves wrong?  Instead, the article says they are preparing a big ole’ made-for-TeeVee moment.

I am sorry to say I’ve seen the American left playing this same game very effectively.  You make a big announcement of all the wonderfulness you’re responsible for, then ignore the dreary little cubicle drones who come behind later and perform the tedious fact checking that proves it was all false.  You just grin and keep on striding knowing that nobody will care by then.  The drones will be concealed behind the blackout of a compliant media, out of sight, out of mind, and months or years behind the power curve.  By the time the truth is nailed down, only a select few will ever know it.  The election (or in this case the lucrative speaking tour) will be locked in.  The books will be sold, fame secured.  Fact is, the little retrograde dweebs who insist on knowing the whole truth can be safely ignored.

Be suspicious.  Be very suspicious.

But!  We have Al Gore to thank for the internet, so the little dweebs can get out front on things like this.  That explains the secrecy.  They don’t want anybody from ICR wetting on the shrubs, so to speak, with embarrassing questions about their specimen.  Still, you now know to view the media splash with a smidge of skepticism, and I’ll take that as progress.
