Contested Bones: Examining the Missing Link – Christopher Rupe

Sep 25, 2020 | Podcast | 0 comments

When “Lucy” was discovered, it was widely touted as a “missing link”. According to Evolution, the human species evolved from an ape-like ancestor about 6 million years ago. Lucy’s discovery was evidence that the evolutionary ape-to-man theory is scientifically correct. However, the validity of this missing link is now in question. Many other so-called missing links are also questionable or have been outright debunked. So are there any real missing links?

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin is talking with Christopher Rupe who co-authored the book “Contested Bones”. Chris Rupe is a biologist and graduated from SUNY Geneseo in 2009. Since 2011 Chris has been a Research Associate at FMS Foundation. Chris has researched a broad range of biological topics—ranging from the origin of life, to bacterial evolution, to whale evolution, to the famous riddle of “Haldane’s Dilemma.” Chris has published numerous articles on these topics.

For the last 5 years, Chris has been researching human evolution and the hominin fossil record. Chris has been studying paleoanthropology in depth—which has required the study of hundreds of technical papers and dozens of related books. Contested Bones is the result of more than four years of intense research into the primary scientific literature concerning those bones that are thought to represent transitional forms between ape and man. This book’s title reflects the surprising reality that all the famous “hominin” bones continue to be fiercely contested today—even within the field of paleoanthropology. 

This work is unique in that it is the most comprehensive, systematic, and up-to-date book available that critically examines the major claims about the various hominin fossils. Even though the topic is technical, the book is accessible for a broad audience and is reported to be engaging even for nontechnical people.

Chris Rupe is also working on a documentary called “Dismantled: A Scientific Deconstruction of the Theory of Evolution. It is premiering October 9-11. Find out more at https://www.back2genesis.org/.
