Some Evolutionists Dissatisfied with Museum Reconstructions

Believers in universal common have been known to patronizingly tell creationists and other evolution doubters to go to a natural history museum and learn. What people see are exhibits with tendentious usages of evidence, displays involving artistic license, and so on.

Actual science, not so much. Remember, facts do not speak for themselves, but are interpreted according to worldviews, and then presented. Secularists presuppose evolution and make that their starting point. Unfortunately, many are so convinced that it is true (despite contradictory or nonexistent evidence), they play fast and loose with their presentations.

Evolution doubters are told to visit natural history museums and learn something. There are evolutionists who object to misleading displays of Lucy and other alleged ancestors.

Take a look at photos of A. afarensis (Lucy) models as well as other illustrations. I found some where a male specimen is gazing heavenward, as if contemplating the mysteries of the universe. Another exhibit has Lucy overjoyed that Alan arrived at the museum — or is that Steve? One model has Lucy with large, floppy breasts looking thoroughly indignant. Seriously?

They cannot know about breast sizes. Putting in whites of the eyes is completely dishonest, used to give these apes a more human appearance. The undiscerning can indeed learn a great deal from museum displays, but precious little is based on facts and evidence. In reality, there is very little upon which to base these models. Rather immoral if you study on it.

While it is easy to point out the dishonesty of the secular science industry, it is refreshing to see that there are a few scientists who want to do actual research. That is more important to them than advancing propaganda for the materialistic narrative. A few researchers pulled back the reins and hollered, "Whoa!" about those artistic reconstructions.
A team of researchers recently looked at artistic renderings of humans’ alleged ape-like ancestors. They openly discussed a wide range of issues of concern in how these are depicted.

The team noted that there have been very few ‘hominin’ fossils ever found. In fact, they highlighted that the total number of finds is less than the number of anthropologists active today. So, comparing reconstructions of the small number of individual hominin finds is relatively easy.
