Goodness gracious, Julia, what a pretty smile!
Welcome aboard!
My name is Ed Conrad and I, too, have a fascination for history --
really, really OLD history.

The difference between me and most of the people you'll hear from --
via postings to the pertinent scientific news groups -- is that I deal
in facts and evidence.
The vast majority of others have long dabbled in fantasy and fiction.
I contend -- and have the proof -- that man existed on earth while
coal was being formed. That's a long, long time ago (at least 280
million years ago, if science's geological dating is correct).

My opponents cling to an erroneous theory that man evolved from a
small monkey-like primate -- called an insectivore -- that lived some
65 million years ago.
And I say, IF man existed in almost his present form
multi-multi-millions of years before the initial emergence of the
insectivore, then common sense dictates that man certainly has no such

It means my opponents have to come up with another explanation for
man's existence eons upon eons earlier. Obviously, one possibility is
that we were created -- but they want no part of that.
Therefore, without the type of answer they know they require to
enhance their Godless position and shoot me down, they've gone
bananas in their criticism of my discoveries.

They can get pretty nasty, too. I've been called a moron, a loon, an
imbicile -- and much, much worse.
They're demanding evidence -- a bushel basketful-- even though they
themselves are fully aware that their adamant stance concerning man's
evolution from the insectivore lacks a single shred of undisputed

I tell them that and they get angrier and angrier, but not one of them
has put their cards (their evidence) on the table.
They can't do it because it simply doesn't exist.

The saddest part of this story, Julia, is that the scientific
community -- eager to protect its erroneous theory -- has resorted to
deceipt, dishonesty, collusion and conspiracy in an effort to deny my
discoveries and my evidence.
Sadly, some of them actually have tampered with the results of the

For example, my discoveries of human bone (and soft organs!)
between the coal seams in Northeastern Pennsylvania are petrified,
which means they have been transformed to a rock-like appearance.

Yet the Haversian canals, a telltale indicator of the cell structure
of bone, still exist and can be seen under the microscope. But my
opponents, the vast majority who have never examined *petrified* bone
in their life, insist that it must precisely resemble the cell
structure of bone that has not petrified.

I keep telling them that only the Haversian canals remain from the
complete Haversian systems because of the petrification process which
has removed the visibility of the surrounding structure so it can no
longer be seen -- but they don't want to hear it.
Their unflinching denial -- this total lack of openmindedness -- is
caused by the brainwashing job that has been so successfully
accomplished over a period of many, many years.

Those poor souls didn't DARE question what they were being taught
because to have done so would've been considered a sacrilege. Then,
after graduating and landing a nice job and eventually gaining access
to substantial ancillary income, they soon realized that you don't
dare make waves by asking questions in response to ridiculous answers.
Quite simply, it is called protecting your vested interests.

Oh, by the way, Julia, the static these individuals are giving me only
matches the static that I have been tossing back. You'll find most of
it by calling up talk.origins but some can also be found in the
``sci"-related groups like sci.bio.paleontology and sci.anthropology.
I put up with none of their gibberish, gobbledygook or nonsense.

In conclusion, I'd like to emphasize that you'll NEVER find me
thumping the Bible on your computer screen. I AM NOT a creationist, in
the strictest sense of the word, and you'd be shocked to learn that
even the creationist organizations worldwide are deathly afraid of me,
along with the evolutionists.

Now isn't THATsurprising? But it's true!

I've been placed in a situation where, because of stringent opposition
from BOTH sides, I'm not supposed to have a ghost of a chance at
making any headway.

Yet such monumental obstacles haven't seemed to phase me and
certainly aren't stopping me. I just continue chugging along, eager to
contribute something substantial to my fellow man.

Finally, Julia -- over there in Australia -- I'd like to leave you
with a very brief synopsis of what's been going on over here.

I'll lete my late, dear friend tell you -- in his inimitable style --

to deny that my specimens are indeed petrified bone) can be found at
