Fun with Neanderthal Pictures

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen 

This is a quick bit of weirdness that I came across when preparing for a post. The article that will be featured involves a Darwinian fantasy about pre-humans and how chewing helped their brains get bigger. Yes, some jaspers really think that.

The article goes on to discuss fire and cooked food and had a picture of allegedly primitive hominins around a fire Since I do not like to use the same image used by the post I am featuring, I remembered this one, which has been listed as public domain:

A simple article picking on details about an artist conception of Neanderthals many Darwin years ago. Also, a picture source implies it is real.
Artist's conception of Neanderthals 60,000 years ago, NASA / JPL-Caltech (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents)
Although the picture is all over the web, some users gave credit to the source. (I like to do that as well, even when not required.) It's supposed to be humans at 60,000 Darwin years ago, and some credits say that those are Neanderthals. (The article at the link below the picture implies they were looking at Mars during a close approach to Earth.) Okay, but it looks mighty cold out there. Neanderthals were too smart to just sit around a campfire in the open air, and they knew how to make good use of their caves.

The other fun part is at PxHere, one of the free sources of images that I use on occasion. Like others, they present public domain images from U.S. government sources. The write-up is...truly bizarre:

"The free high-resolution photo of [list of key words for searches] landscape, nature, snow, people, wildlife, primitive, fire, painting, outside, art, drawing, camp, mountains, animals, prehistoric, screenshot, mythology, pc game, computer wallpaper, neanderthals, taken with an unknown camera 03/14 2017

"The picture taken with The image is released free of copyrights under Creative Commons CC0.

"You may download, modify, distribute, and use them royalty free for anything you like, even in commercial applications. Attribution is not required."

Bad wording, I'll allow. But don't they check these things? It would lead someone to believe that it is a photograph of Neanderthals finally posted in 2017. I know Those folks were extremely intelligent, but I lack belief there were cameras in their time.

Four-Legged Snake in the News Again

Writing about sciency things can be both fascinating and exasperating. The fascinating part is for those of us who like science, but the exasperating part is doing updates. New discoveries are a part of science, especially regarding origins. Darwin's disciples are continually attempting to rewrite history to accommodate observed evidence and still preserve their narrative of atheistic naturalism. Excitement over a supposed four-legged snake fossil slithered back ( which I posted about earlier ) and disputes continue. Tetrapodophis amplectus , Wikimedia Commons / Ghedoghedo  ( CC BY-SA 4.0 ) This whole thing was sensationalized from the get-go to promote fish-to-fool evolution and millions of years. Indeed, some important facts about the fossil were not even discussed. It "sheds light" on evolution. Secularists think it would be (insert mouth click here like Cousin Eddie) really nice, but they still have nothing upon which to base that claim. Mayhaps if they realized that

Scary Videos and Foolish People

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen There are several channels on YouTube that offer scary videos, many of which are allegedly of paranormal occurrences. I get both entertainment and educational value from these. I wonder if they are compelling, faked, or people are receiving pranks. One from Nuke's Top 5  illustrates the foolishness of going into "abandoned" places. Original photo of Eastern State Penitentiary from the Library of Congress , art effect from FotoSketcher (Usage does not imply endorsement of site contents by parties named above) First of all, places are often called abandoned  when they are in ruins and there is no sign of activity, but they are seldom truly abandoned. Sometimes Eastern State Penitentiary is said to be abandoned, but it has always belonged to someone. In fact, it is a historical landmark and has tours. Interestingly, they have a "haunted house" time, but the penitentiary has been visited by various ghost seekers because it has a rep

Why that Atheist Hates Me: Asteroid Mining

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen  Professing atheists are known for attacking Christians — especially biblical creationists (it's who they are and what they do), but seldom go after other religions. There are always people who believe things that we reject, but to seek those people out and and subject them to vituperation is petty and emotionally immature. God calls atheists fools  (Psalm 14:1), the Hebrew word is nabal (נָבָל) and denotes morally wicked, not necessarily stupid. However, since sin ruins everything it touches, many allegedly smart atheists are incapable of reason. Let me tell you about a couple of them, one in particular. Artist's conception of Trojan asteroids /  NASA / JPL-Caltech (usage does not imply endorsement of site contents) When working for Stroid Mining ( stroid  is a compression of asteroid ), our base was Marvin, on Mars. Sorta. While there wasn't a space station, we did have some big ships. They had science analysis stations to determine which stroids
