CHARLES TOWN - A Harpers Ferry man who says he has discovered "the missing link" claims the Jefferson County Board of Education "restricts the teaching of pertinent scientific and historical knowledge to all student in its jurisdiction."
Kenneth Smith filed a complaint Feb. 2 in Jefferson Circuit Court. He claims the board should be teaching genetic facts, and that "the genetic normal human species, which all humans descended from, did in fact exist," the complaint says.
Smith said he worked at Central Reference Laboratory in Anaheim, Calif., where he was given the task of centrifuging and processing blood samples along with cultural specimens for testing. During these studies, he said he decided to extend his work.
"On impulse, I furthered my studies into a feasible theory of the 'genetic normal,' which is also the missing link between man and ape," Smith said in his complaint. "After much research, it became a billion to one shot that came true."
Smith also states the Board of Education must think about removing all of its evolutionary exhibits and declare that an American has discovered the genetic "normal." Smith said he has a large manuscript that denounces the Human Genome Project while acknowledging a greater creator.
