fisking National Geographic magazine...again

National Geographic shoots itself in the foot...again

November does not appear to be a very good month for National Geographic magazine...

In his "From the Editor" discourse in the front of the magazine, editor Bill Allen began with these two sentences. "Humans are not descended from apes. But then Charles Darwin never claimed we are"... Those statements served as a clarion call that something was terribly wrong—because they are as unbelievable as they are erroneous. As we stated earlier, November does not appear to be a good month for National Geographic. And in this particular November issue, Bill Allen could not have gotten off to a worse start. First, he introduced the issue (which quite obviously was intended to substantiate organic evolution as a "fact") by incorrectly stating that Charles Darwin never claimed humans evolved from apes. Second, he published and lauded an article (which consumed 33 pages of the magazine!) that is so filled with ancient, time-worn canards that long ago were discarded as "proofs" of evolution, that even stalwart evolutionists surely must be shaking their heads in disbelief and hiding under their laboratory benches out of sheer embarrassment...
