Thread Posted in Wrong Forum
Since it contains controversial misinformation rather than information, Mike the Wiz should have posted Message 1 as a thread proposal over at Proposed New Topics. Given that known bad information shouldn't stay in the Links and Information forum it has to be moved. Since the thread has already drawn a number of replies I'm moving it here to the Human Origins and Evolution forum. I think the thread should be treated as an opportunity to discuss:

  1. Chutzpah - how in the past human origin researchers again and again expressed certainty that the fossils they'd discovered lay on the human evolutionary path.

  2. Mistakes and frauds - how do human origin researchers occasionally go so wrong, such as Piltdown Man and Nebraska Man?

  3. Science - how does the scientific process correct errors introduced by points 1 and 2?

  4. Accurate information - what is it we know today about the human evolutionary bush?

So here is a tautology for you; a topic posted in the links and information forum is meant as a link to information,...

Please do not post misinformation to the Links and Information forum again.

Re: feed the trolls
This is a science discussion board, and the Links and Information forum is for links and information that have scientific support. If you provide good supporting scientific evidence for your views in this thread then you can post your conclusions in the Links and Information forum.

Re: feed the trolls
The rules can be found here: Forum Guidelines

There's nothing in the Forum Guidelines about the Links and Information forum, but please reserve it for information that has evidential support or is accurate. Your editorializing at the end of your OP made it a debate thread rather than just Links and Information.

Moderator Warning
Please keep discussion focused on the topic. We have no control over what members do at other boards like Evolution Fairy Tale, only what we do here. Mike and his approach to discussion are not the topic. In Message 15 I suggested these discussion areas:

  1. Chutzpah - how in the past human origin researchers again and again expressed certainty that the fossils they'd discovered lay on the human evolutionary path.

  2. Mistakes and frauds - how do human origin researchers occasionally go so wrong, such as Piltdown Man and Nebraska Man?

  3. Science - how does the scientific process correct errors introduced by points 1 and 2?

  4. Accurate information - what is it we know today about the human evolutionary bush?

The witness has 'previous' - this is evidence of propensity to commit similar offences. To treat him as a virgin poster would be silly.

If I get your meaning, in this country we call them 'priors'. I'm not asking participants to ignore the elephant in the room, but it's already been well noted, and I think participants are already aware that Mike might abandon the topic at any time, then return in weeks or months to post a new topic where he'll do the same.

Mike's main points seem to be that there should be more evidence of human evolutionary history than we've found, that humans are not apes, and that evolution doesn't explain the evidence.
