The Ledi Jaw and Missing Link Monkeyshines

Another candidate for a "missing link" in the evolutionary chain raises serious questions about dating methods, and about the small amount of material used for large evolutionary conjectures.
No, it's "Ledi Jaw", not "Jedi Law", Luke.

The Evo Sith want it both ways: Either there's an abundance of fossils, artifacts, and transitional forms to make goo-to-you evolution an indisputable fact, or there's still a big search for the "missing link" between humans and our alleged ape-like relatives. Seems that whenever anthropologists and paleontologists come up with something, there's a big uproar in the scientific community and the press proclaiming triumph.

What do they have now? Part of a jaw. Mighty sparse bit of material to make pronouncements by. There's nothing to compare it with, no skull, no way to judge the overbite. Not much at all, but they're still talking "missing link" material. This reminds me of another critter that was built up from very little — watch yourselves, you may wind up with another Nebraska Man fiasco if you're not careful.

Some misotheists got burrs under their saddles when they saw the article linked below (one predictably calling it a "lie fest", presumably because it shows flaws in evolutionists' methods). Not only did this article show serious flaws in the dating methods to show the age of the jaw, it showed several other serious problems with the specious species reasoning of the scientists. Scientists interpret evidence and make speculations based on their presuppositions. We hear from the evolutionists all the time, but this article argues from a biblical creationist perspective. The evidence fits the biblical model more effectively than the cobbled evolutionary ideas. Yippie ky yay, secularists!
The Ledi jaw puts the human stamp on the evolutionary map much earlier than any other fossil. At least that’s what evolutionists are saying. Touted as the transitional form they need to span a pesky gap, the Ledi jaw has been classified as a species of Homo, the genus to which we belong. Paleontologists reporting in Science describe a number of human features that distinguish it from australopithecine apes. They believe this as-yet-unidentified human species fits somewhere in our evolutionary lineage but much earlier than any other Homo fossil.

The fossil, catalogued as LD 350-1, consists of the bottom portion of a left lower jawbone and five teeth. It was found in 2013 by Chalachew Seyoum, a student working with paleontologists William Kimbel and Brian Villmoare. They were working in the Ledi-Geraru region of Ethiopia’s Afar Triangle, about 12 miles from where the original Lucy—Australopithecus afarensis—was discovered.
