RSR host Fred Williams is joined by Ryan Williams to finish their run-through of the latest creation magazine, and to talk about a New York Times article on “Deadly Venom From Spiders and Snakes May Also Cure What Ails You”. One of the most promising venom-derived drugs to date comes from the deadly Fraser Island funnel web spider of Australia, whose venom treatment halts cell death after a heart attack. Other examples include the Israeli Deathstalker Scorpion that has a compound in clinical trials that finds and illuminates breast and colon tumors, and vampire bat venom appropriately called Draculin that is an anticoagulant used to treat stroke and heart attack. The venom of snakes and insects is a cocktail of 1000s of components where harnessing certain proteins give you high selectivity and affinity for various targets such as membrane receptors, enzymes, or hemostatic pathways, providing a virtual library of medicinal treatments for various ailments. The two RSR hosts also talk about an animal that turns into a wheel, the earth's sci-fi force field, and conclude the show by exposing the weaknesses of Michael Oard's arguments against the dam breach theory for the Grand Canyon.

We realize how much we don't know. We realize we're in this without any help at all. We realize how scary our situation has become. We realize that nobody, and I mean nobody is coming to help us. We realize that we need to stand on our own two feet and get this thing done, and done right the first time. I'm not here to play and I know that once I recruit some people who realize what I and who I am and what I'm all about I'm positive they'll want to join in. I'm giving everyone their space and freedom but the end game is war and those who understand that talk is a waste of time. These entities have done enough to the human race that talk is not going to work, it never has and it never will. If the end is near then it will be the chosen (not the fallen) who bring it. I'm not going to wait for someone to decide my fate any longer. I"m sure that somewhere around 44 years ago my fate was decided for me and I made an oath for it never to happen like that for me (or anyone I love) ever again. We will be the top of the food chain, we will be the feared, we will be the watchers, we will be the evil, we will be the stalkers and not the fodder, we will be the cannon ball that exits out of your back and not those hidden in a shelter waiting for the quiet and the calm.

We realize that we need to stand on our own two feet and get this thing done, and done right the first time. Secret Space Program is just the beginning to our story. Thats just the beginning to everything. We can clearly see things in plain sight where they left it for us to pick up the clues and carry on with our journey. We know because of the NASA whistleblowers who decided to speak out. We know because of NASA insiders finally deciding to let us know what's really going on behind the high walls of the NASA castle and the Department of Defense. Let's finally listen to these whistleblowers who have been kind enough to put their necks on the line and let us know what's going on with the fake stars, the fake planets, the simulated Moon and things like the Sun simulator. Now we can use this information to find the exit of the simulation that was an obvious invention of the Elohim and the Illuminated One. Walls are to be broken, exits are made to be used,

Fossilized Brain (Not Joe Biden's) & Bob's Prediction from 1998

Ryan Williams joins RSR Host Fred Williams in studio to go over the latest Creation Magazine. The fossilized brain of a horseshoe crab alleged to be 310 million years old was uncovered that scientists admit "haven't changed much". Time and time again fossils that are supposed to be millions of years old show little or no change with their modern counterpart, which is powerful evidence against evolution and millions of years that instead points to a recent rapid burial by a catastrophic event, aka Noah's flood. Fred & Ryan then cover an article that talks of how brain genes produce multiple proteins. The old idea that one gene codes for one protein has proven to be wildly inaccurate and a gross oversimplification of the complexity and sophistication of cell genetics. Audio from a debate from May 5th 1998 (exactly 24 years and 1 day ago) show how wise Bob was to call out Eugenie Scott for her claim that pseudogenes are junk and that we were "over the hump" in understanding human genetics. Fast forward to today where her claim is yet another embarrassing memory in the dustbin of bad evolutionist science. The genetic programming in cells is so advanced that even Creationists have been stunned by its mind-blowing sophistication. The two co-hosts also muse over the latest doomsday claim by climate alarmists who say that the next pandemic will be due to global warming. If we get a .5 rise in temperature, get ready to mask up again everyone!

On this ID the Future from the vault, host Jay Richards and astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, authors of The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery, discuss what's changed in the years since the book first appeared. One big change: the number of exo-planets discovered has exploded from 200 or so to several thousand. Gonzalez walks through this and other exciting recent advances in astronomy, and the two discuss how these new discoveries bear on the predictions and arguments they advanced in their book. Also in the discussion, Gonzalez speculates about what the James Webb space telescope may uncover after it comes online. Source

Jahan Khamsehzadeh, Ph.D. completed his dissertation on psychedelics in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. His book, The Psilocybin Connection: Psychedelics, the Transformation of Consciousness, and Evolution of the Planet—An Integral Approach, is being published by North Atlantic Books and distributed Spring 2022 by Penguin Random House. He earned his Masters in Consciousness and Transformative Studies from John F. Kennedy University, and his Bachelors from the University of Arizona with a major in Philosophy and minors in Physics, Psychology, and Mathematics. Aside from academic work, he has undergone several major trainings, including graduating from the Hakomi somatic-psychotherapy program and training within the Mazatec mushroom tradition. He assisted the Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy Certificate training at CIIS for two years, and mentored at the newly emerging School of Consciousness Medicine. He works as a facilitator for legal psilocybin mushrooms ceremonies in Jamaica with Atman Retreats, one of the few opportunities offered worldwide where people can legally experience psilocybin. Jahan is on the PsiloHealth integration team. He also leads a monthly group called “Developing a Relationship with Sacred Mushrooms” with the San Francisco Psychedelic Society.In this episode, Jahan Khamsehzadeh and Beth Weinstein discuss …▶ Jahan's life-changing, psilocybin-assisted experience of oneness at age 18, after which spirituality became the focus of his life▶ Jahan's journey studying neuroscience, physics, mathematics, psychology and mysticism, finally culminating in a PHD in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness▶ How psychedelic medicines have been a part of almost every culture's history▶ Jahan's new book and his sense that it was something he was born to write▶ How the crisis we are facing as a culture is a crisis of separation▶ The ways that feeling a deeper sense of connection can be profoundly healing▶ How it is very common for psychedelic experiences to give us sense of ecological oneness▶ How psychedelics grow in almost all ecosystems to help create a state of equilibrium▶ Decriminalization – cognitive liberty and combatting fear of psychedelics with education▶ Jahan's observation serving psilocybin legally in Jamaica that the majority of clients are coming with anxiety and depression ▶ “Miraculous” psilocybin-assisted healings of treatment resistant depression that Jahan has witnessed▶ Depression as a response to feeling shame and insufficiency and how psilocybin can help us come into contact with who we really are▶ A scientific explanation of how psilocybin creates a highly neuroplastic, hyper-connected brain state ▶ Integration as a process of coming into more harmony with what you have experienced in a psychedelic journey in your daily life▶ The “homework” psychedelics give us and how doing it is a central aspect of integration ▶ How it is often stated that “psychedelics aren't for everybody” – but perhaps it's more a question of the right timing and container?▶ Jahan's hope for the future of psychedelics and the transformation of our society and planet

In this talk, astrobiologist Charles Lineweaver discusses the history of life on Earth and what we can deduce from our understanding of the universe about the existence and history of life elsewhere.  He recounts the ongoing discovery of large numbers of exoplanets -- planets orbiting other stars -- and what we can learn from the varieties of planets that are being found.  He challenges us to think about what parts in the development of intelligent life on Earth would necessarily happen elsewhere and what parts might be unique to our planet. Charles Lineweaver is an honorary associate professor at the Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics and Research School of Earth Science. His research areas include exoplanetology (the statistical analysis of exoplanets and their habitability), cosmobiology (using our new knowledge of cosmology to constrain life in the Universe) and the study of cancer. He recently completed an online video course at: arewealone.us. Dr. Lineweaver earned a BA in history from the State University of New York at Binghamton, an MA in English from Brown University, a BS is physics from Ludwig Maximillian's University in Munich, and a PhD in physics at the University of California, Berkeley in 1994.

RSR Host Fred Williams is joined by Daniel Hedrick for another Contemporary Science Review show. This week the duo look at the ongoing efforts of secular scientists' quest to explain the origins of life while skirting around the huge elephant in the room of Intelligent Design. Instead of using chemicals in the lab such as the Miller–Urey experiment, secular scientists are now resorting to virtual or computer simulations that give the illusion that ecosystems evolve. What these Life Simulators have in common is that they are designed by intelligent minds, and predicated on initial input conditions determined by the intelligent user of the simulator. Daniel also exposes the weakness of AI by inputting a sentence into the AI powered web app Wordtune, which then outputted sentences that changed the meaning. OpenAI recently overhauled their language model in an attempt to address complaints about toxic language and misinformation.

Supernova Helps Politician Win an Election

In the latest Contemporary Science Review segment, Real Science Radio host Fred Williams is joined by Daniel Hedrick where they immerse themselves in the cosmic ray phenomenon that has changed elections, plunged commercial airlines, and altered video game outcomes. The RSR duo review a video from the popular Veritasium YouTube Channel titled “Is the Universe Hostile to Computers”. A politician in Belgium found herself elected despite the mathematical impossibility based on the number of votes cast. The election officials noticed a sudden jump in votes by 4096 for the lucky candidate, but that number was awfully suspicious. To a computer engineer, the number is quickly recognized as exactly 4k or 1000 hexadecimal bytes, or in binary the number 0001000000000000. A single bit flip in the 13th position added 4k to the candidate's vote total. Scientists eventually determined that the bit-flip was likely caused by cosmic rays which originated from a supernova. Fred and Daniel discuss how engineers mitigate such problems caused by cosmic radiation, then marvel at God's creative design via the cell's quality control system that is far superior than what man could ever dream of coming up with. The duo wrap up the show by considering the theological implications and why harmful radiation exists such that our quality control systems need to kick in on a regular basis.

Matt Segall – The Intricacies and Insights of Whitehead's Process Thought

On this episode of Conversations in Process, Jay is joined by Professor Matthew Segall to discuss the finer details of Alfred North Whitehead's process philosophy and theology, and to draw connections between Whitehead's thought and other important thinkers and religious traditions. Matt is Assistant Professor in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco where he teaches graduate level courses on process philosophy and German Idealism. His recent book, Physics of the World-Soul: Alfred North Whitehead's Adventure in Cosmology, put Whitehead's process cosmology into conversation with various contemporary scientific theories, such as general relativity and quantum theory. This book is exemplary of much of Matt's recent work, which puts ideas from process philosophy into conversation with the natural sciences. In this conversation, Matt begins by sharing a bit of his own intellectual journey, telling how he came to Whitehead through Terence McKenna. He talks about his own spiritual background, growing up in a mixed religious family and coming to appreciate eastern religious sensibilities at a young age. Along with guidance from mentors, he eventually discovered that the spiritual insights from dharmic religions which had captivated him in his adolescence actually had equivalents within Western spiritual and religious traditions. Discovering these sources of Western wisdom was what eventually led Matt to encountering Whitehead's own work, first exploring Adventures of Ideas before diving into Process and Reality. At this point, Matt and Jay dive into some of the finer details of Whitehead's philosophical vision, spending some time dwelling on his conception of God, considering how this differs from previous understandings of the divine and subverts certain Western philosophical tendencies generally. he also shares his perspectives on God as both the divine lure and the divine companion in Whitehead's thought, and also emphasizes how Whitehead's God is something that may appeal to more scientifically-minded folks due to the strong empirical emphasis in Whitehead's thought. Another important aspect to Whitehead's philosophy is his insistence on “organic realism,” which Matt presents as an alternative to either idealism or materialism. Matt and Jay conclude this conversation with a discussion of how Whitehead's thought interfaces with other important traditions such as Neoplatonism, shamanism, Buddhism, and Jung's depth psychology. Matt and Jay both emphasize that these two-way dialogues are always fruitful and that these are areas ripe for further research and conversation. Matt will be returning to Conversations in Process later this season to continue this dialogue and explore the ways in which process thought can contribute to contemporary social, cultural, and ecological issues.

Fred & Doug continue to sift through evidence that several fundamental constants aren't so constant after all. They explore the history and scientists behind the various physical constants, including Plank's constant and zero point energy. The RSR co-hosts also continue to dissect Einstein's special theory of relativity and its commitment to the speed of light being constant in a vacuum. One of the most touted experiments that purportedly confirmed special relativity was an experiment using atomic clocks. Ironically, the inventor of the atomic clock, British physicist Louis Essen, was highly critical of the experiment and tried to publish his objections in Nature magazine, but was rejected despite his having more experience than anyone on the planet with atomic clocks! He was warned not to challenge the sacred cow of special relativity, which is reminiscent of how the secular journals also censor anyone critical of their sacred cow of evolution. Fred and Doug then explore the theological implications of relative time taught by Einstein, and how its acceptance is eerily similar to how millions of years and evolution have corrupted Christendom and led to compromises with scripture. RSR takes the controversial and bold position that special relativity has misled many Christians into accepting the speculative and Biblically untenable notion that God is outside of time and that He created time on day 1. Finally, there are some truly universal constants, such as the presence of the Creator (Romans 11:36), the judgement of God judgement (Psalm 9:7), His holy attributes (James 1:17), and the love of the Savior (Hebrews 10:12).

Human space exploration is challenging as well as fascinating. However, the excitement of space flight for astronauts comes at a high cost and is riddled with danger. As our robot explorers become more capable, governments and corporations must consider whether the ambition to send astronauts to the Moon and Mars is worth the cost and risk. In this episode of Bridging the Gaps, I speak with professor Martin Rees who is one of the authors of “The End of Astronauts: Why Robots Are the Future of Exploration”. The book makes the provocative argument for space exploration without astronauts and suggests that beyond low-Earth orbit, space exploration should proceed without humans. In this discussion, we also touch upon some intriguing points the professor Martin Rees discusses in one of his previous books “On the Future: Prospects for Humanity”. Martin Rees is an emeritus professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics at the University of Cambridge. He is the UK's Astronomer Royal, a fellow of Trinity College and a co-founder of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risks at Cambridge University (CSER). We start by discussing our fascination with human space journeys and exploration. We discuss the title of the book “The End of Astronauts” which seems a bit strong. We then discuss the progress in developing better and smarter robots for robotic space exploration. We discuss the progress made by private space companies in reducing the cost for space missions. Professor Rees emphasise the point that space is hostile and difficult environment and we should avoid using terms as space tourism, instead you should call it space adventures. We then discuss the book “On the Future: Prospects for Humanity” and touch upon topics such as colonisations of Mars, post human era; genetic engineering and our future on earth and beyond.

RSR host Fred Williams is joined by co-host Doug McBurney to expose the gimmickry used by secular scientists to hide the fact that some fundamental constants are actually not so constant. Of particular note is their protection of the speed of light, which is closely harnessed to the sacred cow of special relativity. Einstein's thought experiment that led to special relativity was heavily based on Einstein's assumption that the speed of light is constant in a vacuum. Without this assumption, special relativity is dead. Secular scientist Rupert Sheldrake, who has a PhD in biochemistry from Cambridge University, gave a TED talk titled “The Science Delusion” that questioned 10 dogmas of science, one of which is that physics' fundamental constants are not so constant after all. He notes how the speed of light was measured to be decreasing over several decades, only to have a metrology committee decide to tie the speed of light to the units it is measured by, the meter. So if the speed of light changes, the length of the meter changes right along with it and we would never know the speed of light changed! Once again secular scientists have to resort to shenanigans to support their worldview. It also predictably resulted in Sheldrake's talk being banned from TED.

On the next two episodes of Apologetics Profile, Watchman Fellowship staff apologist Daniel Ray interviews University of Oklahoma particle physicist, Dr. Michael Strauss. A devout Christian, Dr. Strauss discusses some of the growing scientific evidences for the existence of God including in his field of particle physics. Dr. Strauss splits his research time between the University of Oklahoma and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. What does the Big Bang have to do with the Bible? Is there any redeemable common ground to be found between the scientific understanding of the origin of our universe and the account of the creation of the heavens and earth as we read in Genesis? While there certainly are differences between the two narratives, one thing the Big Bang does give us as believers is a point of commonality with skeptics and atheists about the beginning of our universe. Theories which posit something "before" the Big Bang cannot be tested in a laboratory. They are theoretical in nature and there have been many attempts to circumvent the idea of a beginning to our universe. From many worlds to multiverses, nothing has concretely overturned the current scientific paradigm that our universe had a definitive beginning. As atheist and cosmologist Dr. Lawrence Krauss recently told our Atheist & Christian Book Club, "Here's the point. Everything we now see,  all of space, all of time, all of the galaxies, all the matter all the radiation, everything that makes up our universe did not exist and then it existed."[YouTube reference time-stamped: https://youtu.be/Y1g8xxsQfjE?t=3346] A theologian could not have described the Genesis doctrine of creation ex nihilo any better.Dr. Michael Strauss discusses some of the theological implications of "Big Bang" cosmology and why he believes his field of physics of subatomic particles more wondrously than ever reveals the glory of God.Dr. Michael Strauss is an experimental particle physicist currently doing research on the ATLAS detector, one of the two multi-purpose particle detectors located on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.

RSR Takes on the Smithonian's Hall of Origins, Part II

  RSR host Fred Williams and Brodie Leitch continue to expose the deception behind the Smithonian's Hall of Origins and the widely promoted 'march of progress' illustration that has effectively fooled many into believing in evolution. Today's show uncovers the truth behind 3 more alleged ape-men promoted by the Smithonian: Ardipithecus kadabba, Ardipithecus ramidus (Ardi), and Australopithecus anamensis. The first alleged ape-man in the list was boldly proclaimed as bipedal, all based off of a single toe bone! The 2nd ape included 34 pulverized bones that 14 reconstructions later yielded the look wanted by Dr. Owen Lovejoy, who has a history of bonesaw reconstructions to produce fake ape-men to promote his propagandist narrative. Finally, the last ape-man in the list was just 3 bone fragments scattered 600 miles apart that is unlikely the same creature. As famed Harvard paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould once candidly admitted, “Most hominid fossils ... serve as a basis for endless speculation and elaborate storytelling" all based on "fragments of jaws and scraps of skulls”.  Ape-men article rebuttals 3 through 5... (see Smithonian Part 1 show for first two rebuttal articles; articles courtesy of Brodie Leitch) 3. Ardipithecus kadabba “Ardipithecus kadabba” (pronounced: “Aar-duh-pith-uh-kuhs kuh-dah-bah” and meaning “oldest ancestor” in the Afar language) was discovered in the Middle Awash Valley in Ethiopia in 1997. In spite of the fact that this alleged species “is only known in the fossil record by a few post-cranial bones and sets of teeth,” (a total of 36 bone fragments) The Smithsonian claims that: “‘Ardipithecus kadabba' was bipedal.” The “evidence” for this claim is: “One bone from the large toe has a broad, robust appearance, suggesting its use in bipedal push-off.” Claiming to have discovered an ape-man, (and a bipedal one, no less) based off of a single toe bone is already sketchy, but it gets worse for the evolutionists. In the same article, the Smithsonian admits that:“So far, the evidence for ‘Ardipithecus kadabba's' upright walking comes from a single toe bone that dates to 5.2 million years old [400,000 years younger than the other specimens] and was found 10 miles away from the other ‘Ardipithecus kadabba' specimens.” After their bold claim of bipedality and confession of such little evidence, the Smithsonian asks: “Was Ardipithecus kadabba routinely bipedal?”, “If Ardipithecus kadabba walked upright, what was its gait like?” and “is Ardipithecus kadabba somehow related to Orrorin tugenensis and Sahelanthropus tchadensis?” So not only are they unsure if “Ardipithecus kadabba” walked upright, they aren't sure it's related to humans either. 4. Ardipithecus ramidus (Ardi) (Partial skeleton (ARA-VP-6/500) "Ardi".) “Ardipithecus ramidus” (pronounced: “Aar-duh-pith-uh-kuhs ram-ee-dus” and nicknamed “Ardi”) was discovered in Middle Awash and Gona, Ethiopia between 1992 and 1994. The fragments were assembled into a partial skeleton in 2009. (15 years later.) The Smithsonian claims that: “Since that time, [1992-1994] [paleoanthropologist, Dr. Tim] White's team have uncovered over 100 fossil specimens of Ardipithecus ramidus.” Keep in mind that even with 100+ “specimens”, (which are only fragments and according to the Australia museum, “represent about 35 individual members of this species”) they still only have 1 skeleton. The discoverers argue that “the ‘Ardi' skeleton reflects a human-African ape common ancestor that was not chimpanzee-like.” However, the fossils were in such poor condition, that Dr. Tim White (the leading paleontologist on the team who discovered the fossils) stated that they were “like roadkill” with the discovery channel adding in their documentary, “Discovering Ardi”, that: “Her skull was found in 34 pulverized, scattered pieces that were compacted down to about one-and-a-half inches thick.” One of the allegedly human-like features is the pelvis. Some evolutionists claim that the pelvis shows adaptations that combine tree-climbing and bipedal activity. However, as reported in the Discovery Channel's documentary titled: “Discovering Ardi”, the pelvis was too badly broken and fragile to take out of the matrix it was in, so Dr. Owen Lovejoy made a reconstruction based on his knowledge of primate anatomy and a Micro CT scanner. After 14 different possible configurations, the team settled on the configuration shown in most reports. Secular paleo-experts Drs. Wood and Harrison, rightly expressed a great deal of concern about this, pointing out that “a whole lot of speculation went into the final pelvis reconstruction.” Dr. Jungers stated that: “That's really kind of a 3-D Rorschach test if you ask me,” and "I'm still not convinced that it's necessarily completely accurate”. The Smithsonian is still asking: “Does the pelvis of Ar. ramidus support the hypothesis that this early human species was bipedal?” (Ardi's Pelvis vs. Rorschach Inkblot Test) Dr. Lovejoy believes that Ardi's spine was probably long and curved like a human's rather than short and stiff like a chimp's. He based that belief on both the pelvis that was reconstructed 14 times and his guess that Ardi had 6 lumbar vertebrae, (despite the fact that most apes have only 3 or 4, and humans have 5) but they don't even have any of Ardi's lumbar vertebrae. The displays and animations of Ardi, insert an entirely imaginary spine (with a four-part curve like humans) into the reconstructed base of her skull using imaginary neck vertebrae. Most of the foramen magnum (the whole in the base of the skull where the spinal chord connects) which the imaginary spine is connected to, is also missing. Unlike Ardi's “human-like” features (which are speculative at best) Ardi's ape-like features are obvious. According to Science.org: “The skull of this tiny ape can fit into the palm of your hand like a softball and her brain was about the same size as bonobo or a female chimp.” In addition to that, Ardi's foot had a hallux, (grasping toe, hanging off to the side) just like apes have today so they can use their feet like hands for grabbing branches while moving in trees. According to Dr. Tim White, the toe “really doesn't differ from apes, and that's the surprising thing. It is fully apelike.” Dr. Jungers added “I see nothing in the foot that suggests bipedality.” As Genesis Apologetics states: “When you put her [Ardi] next to a bonobo, it sure seems like she fits into the ape family quite well.” 5. Australopithecus anamensis Australopithecus anamensis (pronounced “Ah-struh-low-pith-ee-kus A-na-men-sees”) is a set of fossil fragments, discovered between 1965 and 2019. (A 54-Year span)  Fossils of this “species” have been found in the Middle Awash region in northeast Ethiopia and at three sites (Allia Bay, Kanapoi and Sibolot) around Lake Turkana in Kenya. The areas in which these fossils were discovered are almost 600 miles apart. Most of the fragments undoubtedly came from apes. The Smithsonian's article on ‘Australopithecus anamensis' lists multiple obvious ape-like features: “Long forearms and features of the wrist bones suggest these individuals probably climbed trees” “a protruding face” “long and narrow braincase” “forwardly projecting cheekbones similar to Paranthropus” “thickly-built, long, narrow… strong jaws” “heavily enameled teeth” “The sites where remains of ‘Australopithecus anamensis' have been found were forests and woodlands that grew around lakes.” The Australian Museum adds:  “size was probably similar to that of modern chimpanzees” And the journal “Nature” reported that anamensis had:  “specialized wrist morphology associated with knuckle-walking.” Controversy has surrounded the allegedly more human-like nature of the tibia and humerus. The Smithsonian says that:  “The top part of the tibia (where the lower leg meets the knee) is concave, or depressed from stress. This shows that the individual often put weight on the bone—evidence of standing upright. The lower part of the tibia (where the lower leg meets the ankle) is wider or thicker—evidence that it acted as a type of shock absorber as this individual walked.” The Australian Museum says likewise: “the knee-end of the tibia (shin bone) was human-like as the upper surfaces of the two knobs (condyles) at the top of the tibia were similar in size and concave in shape. This feature indicates this species could walk bipedally (on two legs).” And the “Scientific American” adds: “The anamensis humerus lacks a deep, oval hollow, used as a locking mechanism between the humerus and ulna, the latter being present in chimpanzees, but not in humans, and the anamensis tibia is wide, as in humans, because of extra spongy tissue, which acts as shock absorbers during bipedal locomotion.” These are very strong claims considering that they're only based on 3 bone fragments. Contrary to these overly-confident claims, in a 1995
