Right I'm convinced its definitely the missing link Adapid.
"Described as the “most complete fossil primate ever discovered,” the specimen is a juvenile female the size of a small monkey. Only the left lower limb is missing, and the preservation is so remarkable that impressions of fur and the soft body outline are still clear. The animal’s last meal, of fruit and leaves, remained in the stomach cavity."

19th may announcement

The May 25th 'world changing event'

47 myo leaf insect (just an extra)

Okay, what I have been reading is they found "another" fossil... a preserved and complete, spectacular fossil of an adapid (female) in Germany about two years ago and have been studing it and it makes a connection of some sort. Dated up to 50 million years

All I can think this can't be it, could it, I sure will be disappointed. I am hoping we have two complete different things going on here between the 19th and 25th

edit to add, oops! above post got me first.

The skull has an alien complexion to it. Alien, as in foreign to us not in the sense of extraterrestrial.

You said that nicely. I think its the monkey thing the more I read, what a let down.

posted on May, 16 2009 @ 01:26 PM
This is my thought on the whole monkey thing. From what The history channel is making such a big deal about it and not revealing what it is. Why would they tell the news to the media. Makes no sense at all. Just think about it lets make a big deal about it and hype everyone up and oh wait whoops we just leaked that we were going to do a special on it lol.

They know if it hits the net and spreads like wildfire there rating will sky rocket on the 25th.

Most people since it is a Holiday will either DVR it, ignore, hope to catch what happened on the net.

If the Major Press Conference is about the monkey thing I would think people are going to go back to having there holiday fun and they aren't going to watch some boring documentary.

Well, I'm going to the Casino for awhile "to ponder over this" I think I will play the "Monkey machine" and I'll let you know if a winner or loser

Some information about Sir David Attenborough that I found in another thread...

Sir David Attenborough is in the news because he has become a patron of the Optimum Population Trust. Read the BBC story here:

Not that this has anything to do with the show but thought it was interesting.

Okay, I just thought of something that I don't think has been mentioned yet.

Isn't the HADRON COLLIDER set to be switched on at the end of this month after the last start had problems and had to be deferred?

Isn't Tom Hanks going to switch it on?

The Hadron Collider is going to be a ground breaking thing if it all goes to plan.

They already went through the hype of that machine that caused more fear than excitement.
Its like when you switch on the christmas lights, a big countdown to a crowd then you switch them on and the fuse blows.
So 5 minutes later your new fuse is in and you switch it on and people give a half hearted yay.
So firing up the LHC wouldnt be really that big a deal this time around.
That and they never saved a timeslot for a TV channel or made a countdown calling it a change to mankinds understanding last time.
That would be more a discovery than history thing too.
I am 99.9% certain on the missing link, it just all fits together.

Nice alternative theory though.

Well, while this may not be most important find in history, it is an important find, and worthy of special attention. Why? For the simple reason that almost half of Americans (and probably a good share of Europeans) by latest polls do not believe in Evolution poll info article. Meaning that they do not believe in the possibility that humans (among other animals) are descended from less advanced creatures. If this fossil is as complete and revealing as the NY Times article quoted above says, it may mean that for the first time, there is fossilized proof of a transitional species.

Creationists have long argued that if evolution was true, why haven't there been any finds of missing links - particularly in the human line? While some species have been identified by paleontologists as transitional, the examples cited are not so obvious that the common person can identify it and believe it themself. That's a problem for science in general - conveying conclusions that are based on obscure and complex data elements, in a manner that most people 'get'.

So if this species is indeed protosimian with soft tissue and hair identifiable, that is a hugely important find. It would in fact represent something that is not already clearly an ape, monkey, or orangutang. Since I have not seen the show yet, I am only hoping this is the case.

So, if this find, converts even a few percent of people from creation to evolution, then its a win for the progress of science and western civilization's true ideals. Even better, perhaps some of them are in positions to discourage the inacting of laws that restrict scientific progress - like stem cell research.

And before anyone blasts me for being blind to the good things about creationism (yes I do think there are some good things to it), let me just say that in my view, accepting in the process of evolution does not necessarily mean that one must abandon belief in a higher being or god. The two are not incompatible.

I saw this the other day. All I am saying is they better have something GOOD and super amazing if they are comparing to some of these events. If not I will never watch their channel again. I love the History Channel but this had better be something big to advertise in such a big way. I personally would love it to be about UFO's/aliens. Its also Memorial Day, why choose Memorial Day to do it?

I just know we are going to be disappointed by this, We've all got our own views and I bet it will end up being something so simple, but then again they've gone to all this trouble of trying to keep it secret..

I guess we just have to wait and see

It seems that the False Prophets had a contest something dealing with the Canaanite God Baal and Israel's God Yahweh

The Date 845 B.C.

The Book of Obadiah (a minor biblical prophet)


Obadiah tells a story of double betrayal. The nation of Edom, which should have been an ally, betrayed Judah when the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem in 586 B.C. As punishment the Lord promises that Edom will likewise fall prey to a trap by its allies. Obadiah then takes this theme of “judgment through betrayal because of betrayal” and expands it to encompass all nations when the Day of the Lord comes and “the kingdom will be the Lord’s.”

I Just saw the BBC Version of the ad, There using the date 26th of May

It also mentions the same message that it will change us forever

New video found on the history channel hype. Im getting curious by the second.

I dunno if anyone knows what this is or means or has thought about it at all but check out the timewave zero chart for the 25th

posted on May, 16 2009 @ 06:06 PM
Now I am really confused and curious??

" What if everything you knew was a lie" Surely the Broadcasters who run the History channel and BBC know about it and if it was really BIG news we would know sooner right?

interesting video. i have been reading this thread with great interest and an open mind to all suggestions.

the quote, "what if all you knew was a lie", says a lot to me. if this is indeed about evolution and the finding of this monkey, then this quote does not fit here.

because "all we know" is what we are all taught and that is that we were part of the evolutionary process and came from apes etc. so are they saying this is a lie?

why mention our air, our water, our life, and creation?? according to this ad, it has to be much more important than a monkey finding. this to me is about how it all started, the earth and life as we know it. hopefully there will be a ET slant to this.

its confusing though as the ad points to a huge thing, not just a find of a monkey

I'd given up on this thing having convinced myself that it is just going to be the lemur story.............but that ad has got me interested again!

If it's the lemur story what the hell has that got to do with " everything is a lie , the air , water , creation"

curiouser and curiouser

posted on May, 16 2009 @ 06:11 PM
Yeah the ad makes out as if this finding is Revolutionary and it will have a massive impact on how we think now, I really hope its not too big and I swear if this is something stupid there really messing with peoples emotions
