  Java Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Java Man was one of the first specimens of Homo erectus to be discovered.
A second Java Man was later discovered in the village of Sangiran, Central Java, 18km to the north of Solo.
Many scientists of the day even suggested that Dubois' Java Man might have been the so-called "missing link", the creature that is supposed to provide the evolutionary connection between the apes and modern man. However, due to 19th Century skepticism, this theory was never credited to Dubois.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Java Man
Java (7° S 109° E) is in a chain of islands with Kalimantan (Borneo) to the north, Sumatra to the northwest, Bali to the east, Borneo to the northeast and Christmas Island to the south.
The island of Java is also famous for the "Java man", a set of fossil remains of "Homo erectus" found near the Brantas river in East Java.
Based on his own theories about how brains had evolved and wishful thinking, Dubois did claim that Java Man was "a gigantic genus allied to the gibbons", but this was not, as creationists imply, a retraction of his earlier claims that it was an intermediate between apes and humans.

 Creationist Arguments: Java Man
Many creationists have claimed that Java Man, discovered by Eugene Dubois in 1893, was "bad science".
Wadjak at about the same level and had kept them secret; that Dubois later decided Java Man was a giant gibbon; and that the bones do not come from the same individual.
Lubenow is saying that since this species of tapir was found in both the Trinil [the site where Java Man was found] and Wadjak faunas, these fossils may be of the same age.

 Who was ‘Java man’?
In 1892 on the island of Java, he found a thigh-bone, which to all intents and purposes was like that of modern humans.
Evolutionist articles of textbooks and anthropological journal articles have often written that Dubois eventually renounced his ‘Java man’ and claimed it was merely a giant gibbon.
In fact, by insisting that his ‘Java ape-man’ had the proportions of a gibbon (thus changing the reconstructed body-weight) he was ensuring that the ratio would fit neatly into his (erroneous) mathematical series.

 The Java Man (Pithecanthropus Erectus) - Wilson
Java man (1891), Peking man (1928) and man of the types recently found in Africa are too well proved to be the creations of wishful theorist, or of jokers." After such statements as this, a person would think that the proof of these is abundant and honest as well as scientific.
The way in which it was concluded that the "Java Man" was a missing link is: (1) It was deduced that he walked upright because of the nature of the femur (thighbone).
One of the debatable points used as proof of the "Java Man" being, a "missing link" was the size of the brain that would have gone into the skull from which the skull cap came.

Java man was dated to between about 0.5 million years old and 1.8 million years old because of its apparent location in the Trinil layers, which Dubois asserted was from the earlier Pleistocene Epoch.
Sir Arthur Keith, a Cambridge University anatomist claimed that the skull was distinctly human,[iv] and Sir William Turner suggested that the unusual shape of the skull was due to a pathological condition because the thigh bone contained a pathological growth.
Evidence that Java man was fully human has been around for one hundred years, but this evidence has been buried and suppressed to uphold the dogma of evolution.

Creationist Arguments: Java Man http://earth.ics.uci.edu:8080/faqs/homs/a_java.html Many creationists have claimed that Java Man, discovered by Eugene Dubois in 1893, was "bad science".
Most people would find Gish's meaning of "nearby" surprising: the Wadjak skulls were found 65 miles of mountainous countryside away from Java Man. Similarly for "at the same level": the Wadjak skulls were found in cave deposits in the mountains, while Java Man was found in river deposits in a flood plain (Fezer, 1993).
If one is trying to pigeonhole Java Man as either an ape or a human, calling it a human is easily the best choice, but Lubenow (1992) seems to be the only creationist who has done so.

The bones known as "Java Man" are key for deciding between these theories, and the most important unknowns about them are their dates.
Their dates for Solo Man are even more remarkable, indicating that Homo erectus was not a precursor to Homo sapiens but a separate species that, like the Neanderthals, had coexisted with us as recently as 27,000 years ago.

So the whole no-heap thing/immortal objects, if you describe that to an average Java programmer, they'd say, "Oh my God, this is really awful." But if you describe it to somebody who's been doing realtime programming, their reaction is sort of, "Gee, that's what I do today.
