But then we began to hear a different story . . .
Someone had taken an ape jaw and put it with a human skull, filed the teeth and then carefully stained it all so that the bones looked both ancient and a matching set. The whole thing was a fabrication by a man by the name of Dawson, apparently to achieve scientific recognition.

It seems that what we learned about Nebraska Man was not exactly truthful.
The Nebraska Man picture was created by an artist from ONE MOLAR TOOTH and not from a preserved half-man fossil.
Now we are told that the image was created from a single tooth of an EXTINCT PIG . . . not a man or half-man at alL
This so called "missing link" was the key evidence in the Scopes Trial even though it has been proven fraudulent. Our text books also continue to present Nebraska Man as one of the missing links.
In 1912, Piltdown Man was found. This created a great sensation in the scientific world and the men who found this "missing link" were knighted as a royal and heroic tribute by the King of England.
However, in 1916, a dentist examined the "evidence" and discovered that the teeth had been filed down by someone.
Later, in 1953, Joseph Weiner and Kenneth Oakley applied a newly developed fluorine test to the bones and found that Piltdown Man was northing more than a deceptive hoax.
Peking Man became one of the "missing links" in the 1920's. A man by the name of Davidson Black found a single tooth near Peking, China. After being given a grant of $80,000.00 from the Rockefeller Foundation, it was discovered that the tooth was found in a town garbage dump. The site contained thousands of animal bones and a few human bone fragments. From these fragments Peking Man was declared the "missing link" in the evolution of ape to man.
Now, all evidence of the Peking Man has strangely disappeared even though it is still featured as one of the great "missing links" in many text books.
