Jack Chick: Perpetuating Falsehood since 1924

Jack Chick has a poster that supposedly shows the foolishness of evolution. All it actually shows is the foolishness of Jack Chick.

The poster shows a number of hominids, comicly illustrated, with the following pieces of drivel beneath them:

  1. Heidelberg Man – Built from a jaw bone that was conceded by many to be quite human.
  2. Nebraska Man – Scientifically built up from one tooth and later found to be the tooth of an extinct pig.
  3. Piltdown Man – The jawbone turned out to belong to a modern ape.
  4. Peking Man – 500,000 years old. All evidence has disappeared.
  5. Neanderthal Man – At the Int’l Congress of Zoology (1958) Dr. A. J. E. Cave Said his examination showed that the famous Neanderthal skeleton found in France over 50 years ago is that of an old man who suffered from arthritis.
  6. Cro-Magnon Man – One of the earliest and best established fossils is at least equal in physique and brain capacity to modern man…so what’s the difference?
  7. Modern Man – This genius thinks we came from a monkey.
  8. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools – Romans 1:22

So, let’s refute these one at a time:

  1. Heidelberg man – the first evidence for heidelberg man was a jaw, and it looks nothing like a modern human’s jaw. It’s supported by additional fossils found in France and Greece anyway.
  2. Nebraska man – the scientist who found this tooth was skeptical himself of its origins, as were other scientists of the time. The find was published in the hope that someone could identify it, which is exactly what happened. Follow up publications clearly defined it as belonging to a peccary. This is science at work, people.
  3. Piltdown man – this was a hoax, and evolutionists exposed it as a hoax. Science at work, yet again. Scientists do not still use known mistakes like Nebraska man or Piltdown man to support their arguments, which is more than can be said for creationists who still trot out the Paluxy footprints every chance they get.
  4. Peking man – yes the original fragments were lost, but casts were made and are still available at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing and the American Museum in New York. They were also photographed extensively. So big deal, just because the originals have been lost, that doesn’t refute findings made on those originals before they were lost, nor the existance of them in the first place.
  5. Neanderthal man – wrong! Cave said that the stooped posture assumed of Neanderthals was incorrect because the scientists examining the French skeleton had not taken into account that it was an older male who may have suffered from arthritis, hence his posture. Many many other skeletons of Neanderthal man have been found, supporting Cave’s findings that Neanderthal man walked upright, not stooped. Do your homework, Jacky-boy!
  6. Cro-Magnon man – cro magnon man is one of the earliest examples of what we call modern humans, but the fossils show that cro magnon man had 4% more brain capacity than modern humans and was on the whole more physically robust. While it might be technically accurate to say ‘at least equal’ when you know something to be greater, we can see here that Jack is trying to avoid explicitly saying ‘different’, just so he can ask what the difference is. Moron. 
  7. Modern man – Yes, this genius does think we came from a monkey. What’s your point?
  8. Ah yes, quoting from the bible, the ultimate recourse of those who don’t actually have a shred of proof to support their position. Never mind that Jack doesn’t seem to know his bible. I refer you to Mark 5:22 –  “whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Well Jack, I guess I’ll see you in hell, then.

  1. Damn! There goes the neighbourhood.

  2. Jack Chick is the FUNNIEST religious nutjob in history. I love his tracts. Pure comedy!

  3. ‘religious nutjob’. That should be in all English textbooks as an example of redundancy…..

  4. jack chick is a moron, but that doesn’t bother me. what bothers me is all the midwesterners who believe his crap.

  5. Jack Chick tracts make me laugh! They are so ludicrious! Check this out: some geniouses came up with the idea to film Jack’s tracts VERBATIM. Here’s their webpage: http://www.316now.com. It’s hilarious.

  6. kyknoord: it’s a seller’s market

    mr angry: he’s either a genius at satire or the dumbest person to walk the planet yet.

    forgottenmachine: along with christian scientist, religious tolerance, and holy war.

    tw: and sadly, a lot of south africans. His tracts have pitched up here too

    Johnny: wow, way too much time on their hands.

  7. Hey, I giggle when I read your writings. I just wanted to let you know. It’s funny and ironic when you point out how JC is funny because he says things he says.
    You guys sound like a bunch of psuedo-intellectuals. Are you in your early 20s? Did you just graduate? That’s what you sound like. You sound like you just took some class, and now you feel better than everyone else.
    I won’t comment on WHAT you guys are saying, but HOW you’re saying it makes you sound like arrogant @$$e$.

  8. I won’t comment on WHAT you guys are saying, but HOW you’re saying it makes you sound like arrogant @$$e$

    oh, well then welcome to the club, since you pretty much just described your own comment.

    Just out of curiousity, are you even capable of commenting on what was said in this post, regarding Jack Chick’s willfull perpetuation of falsehood? Or are you just settling for ad hominem attacks because you’re unable to refute the facts? No, we didn’t just take a class and we’re not in our early 20s. We were born with brains and we use them on a regular basis. You might want to try it some time.

  9. Boy, you sure hate Jack Chick. That makes you seem cool. I told you before, I won’t give you my opinions on your info, just the way you say it. I started to copy your text and put an asterisk by each arrogant and unnessarily hateful statement, but it turned out, you had asterisks by each sentence, sometimes more than one per sentence. You can say the same thing in a different way, and probably win over more people. You are trying to win over people, right? If not, then I guess you just want everyone to see how smart you think you are.

    And if you’re not in your 20s, you need to grunt real hard and squeeze that arrogance out into the crapper, like people do when they grow up.

  10. as far as i’m concerned, being nice and civil about morons who are brainwashing the sheep who listen to them is not a tactic that has worked. I will respond to these people with the same vehemence and scorn that they reserve for people like me. It seems to work for them, and gains them plenty of followers. Plus, liars piss me off. If you don’t like people who are pissed off and are vocal about it, you may find that the real world is not for you.

    And by the way, it’s not arrogance if you really are better.

  11. Jack Chick is such an easy and unimpressive target. Do you also feel proud when you can trick a dog by pretending to throw a ball? When I read your piece, it’s not really about Jack Chick. It’s all about YOU, and how much more intelligent YOU are.

  12. It is very obvious to me that you are lacking in basic reading comprehension skills and critical thought. Come back when you have something to say.

  13. Oh, okay. Well, how about I’ll come back the next time I care about anything you have to say. I was trying to help you be less unbearable, but it seems like you’re pretty much set in your ways.

    I did read through your glurg. The problem is not so much to do with word comprehension skills; the problem is more to do with your boring writing skills. Maybe I fell asleep in the wonderful parts.

  14. This is the most laughable refutation I’ve ever seen.

    How does the fact that almost all of these remains were completely discredited by SCIENTISTS change the fact that they were discredited? Shouldn’t that carry even MORE weight?

    You have basically just admitted in your post that out of all of those remains, only two possess any real scientific credibility. Great job proving your point.

  15. wow. your comment astounds me.

    First, count again. That’s two hoaxes that are known hoaxes but which Jack Chick claims scientists are still taking seriously. The fact that scientists were the ones that disproved them goes to show that Jack Chick is LYING. That leaves, of the examples given here, all BUT two having scientific credibility. And are you really so uneducated and uninformed as to suppose that the few examples Chick gives are the ONLY examples of humanoid fossils ever found? Go check a book out of a library. Those are the big buildings full of books, in case you don’t know.

    You have basically admitted in your comment that people like you lack basic reading, comprehension, and counting skills. So only an idiot would believe Jack Chick. Great job in proving MY point.

  16. Total waste, I like(not) how you are able to select a single region as being more likely to believe in things that you deem to be silly and/or stupid. By your reckoning I and others like me who live in the mid west are all morons, I guess.

    I reckon that your name sums up your education and “critical thinking” abilities.

    Moonflake, I think you are aptly named as well. Mr. Barton has intelectually nailed your hide to one of our midwestern barn doors, and you do not even realize it.
