"For evolution to proceed, it is essential that the less fit die as it is that the more fit survive. If the unfit survived indefinitely, they would continue to "infect" the fit with their less fit genes. The result is that the more fit genes would be diluted and compromised by the less fit genes, and evolution could not take place.
"The more fit survive because they are better able to compete for the limited food supply, and they reproduce in greater numbers. In other words, in both models [gradualism or punctuated equilibrium], for species A to evolve into species B, species A must precede species B in time. Furthermore, after species A has evolved into species B, any species A remnants must soon die. It is thus basic to evolution that if species B evolved from species A, that species A and species B cannot coexists for an extended length of time."
"We have a right to expect, if evolution were true, that the hominid fossil record would faithfully follow the time and morphology sequence set forth by evolutionists. Since humans are supposed to have evolved from something very different from what they look like today, we have a right to expect that very modern-looking fossils would not embarrass the evolutionist by showing up in Lucy times [see KNM-ER 1470, KNM-ER 3733, KNM-ER 3883], or that primitive or archaic fossils would not embarrass the evolutionist by showing up in modern times [see Talgai, Amud I, Nacurrie, and the recent allocation of the Java specimens to about 27k yrs]. We also have a right to expect that if a significant number of fossils are so rude as to show up at the wrong time, the evolutionist would be honest enough to admit that his theory has been falsified. In actuality, many fossils have been that rude. And evolutionists have been less than intellectually honest."

If man evolved from an ape his skull morphology should go from a small to large brain,
from an extended to flat brow ridge, from a thick to thin cranium wall, and from a low to high dome.
Any reversal of this pattern in the fossil record would falsify the concept of human evolution.
Any group contemporary with any other group over the same period of time means neither evolved from the other.
The fossil record shows a diversity in the history of man with absolutely
no connection with an ape or ape like creature.

“There is now clear evidence that in eastern Africa a large brained, truly upright and bipedal form of the genus Homo existed
contemporaneously with Australopithecus more than 2.5 million years ago.”

Skull Pushes Back Man's Origin
"Ancient bones found in Africa have been assembled into a skull that may extend man's immediate ancestry back more than one million years earlier than previously believed. The fragments, making up a skull with striking resemblances to that of modern man, were found in a layer of material that had been deposite about 2.6 million years ago.
Richard Leaky, co-leader of the expedition that found the bones, said the skull seemed to displace two other man-like creatures widely thought to represent the early stages in man's development. One of them, a beetle-browed type known as Homo erectus lived far more recently—a million years ago—yet is less like modern man than the lately found skull.
The other reputed ancestor, Australopithecus, an ape-like "man" that walked relatively erect, lived 2.5 to 3 million years ago. It now appears to have been a contemporary of the more modern-looking type, rather than ancestral to the men of today."
--The New York Times, November 1972
Skull KNM-ER 1470 and leg fragment KNM-ER 1481 originally dated 2.5 to 3 m.y.a. resemble modern humans and were more likely than Afarensis Lucy to have left the Laetoli foot prints dated just over 3 m.y.a.
Lubenow delivers knock out punch to the theory of the evolution of man.
