I have some ICR literature where Gish, Bliss and Bird quote Zuckerman
as saying that there are no "fossil traces" of a transformation from
an ape-like creature to man. I found the source of the quotation. It
is a 1970 or 1971 book called _Beyond the Ivory Tower_. I noticed
that the chapter the quotation comes from is "based" on a 1954
article. The article is "Art and Science in Anatomical Diagnosis"
from the Manchester University Medical School Gazette. Rutgers
doesn't have this particular periodical, so before I order it from
some other library, I figured I'd be annoying and ask if anyone is
either familiar with this or if they had easy access to the source.
(It's volume 33.) Basically, the big question is does the following
appear in the original article: "For example, no scientist could
logically dispute the proposition that man, without having been
involved in any act of divine creation, evolved from some ape-like
creature in a very short space of time--speaking in geological
terms--without leaving any fossil traces of the steps of the
transformation." If it DOES in fact appear in the original article, I
guess it would be fair to say that it was ridiculously dated by the
time the ICR got around to using it in 1981. Certainly many important
fossil discoveries concerning human origins were made in the 1960's
and 1970's, so the quotation would hardly be applicable to the current
available evidence. In the book, it appears at the end of the eighth
paragraph of the chapter. Anyone know if it appears in the article?
