holy crap, man! you found the missing link!!


what is the big hype about some lemur? i was always under the impression that the "missing link" was one that shows how humans differentiated from apes and the such, thus proving darwin's theory. i don't like this story one bit

From what I have been able to find using Google:
Chris Moseley was appointed as senior VP of marketing for the History Channel, as of June 11, 2007.
Nancy Dubuc, EVP and General Manager, History Channel, present at the world changing press conference

It seems email addresses for History Channel employees conform to their parent companies (A&E) email system "firstname.lastname@AETN.COM". Presumably the email addresses for Chris Moseley and Nancy Dubuc would be Chris.Moseley@AETN.COM and Nancy.Dubuc@AETN.COM. Now I don't know any of this info to be factual or up to date, only that it is the most up to date info I could find. I hope all the people who were vigorously interested in the History Channel's commercial (the legit one(s)) tries to contact these folks and let them know how much their work is appreciated.

Remind me never to tick off the forum members of ATS. If only the ancient Egyptians had forum members of this caliber. Slavery gets *Snip* done? No way ATS gets *Snip* done!

More emails please kind sir. I have more complaints to send out.

Here is an article on the site "IDA" was found. Kind of interesting, for those who are to know what else was found.

The world in which Ida lived was a critical time in primate evolution, but all around her was a riot of evolutionary experimentation by other mammal groups. It was a through-the-looking glass world of half-familiar, half-bizarre beasts with Mr Potato Head combinations of characteristics such as pygmy horses and rodents with trunks – and many of them were soon to die out.

What I find interesting is that this thing is being called the missing link of primate evolution. Yet this thing clearly resembles todays lemur's far more than monkeys or humans.

So why is this not an ancester of Lemurs, but instead our(MAN's) great aunt. I am sure some lemurs would be pretty upset, typical humans claiming everything for themselves.

i dont know if someone posted it on this forum yet, so many pages to look through, but here it is!!!

I think it has something to do with some physical features found on this Lemur. Like fingernails. Possibly the jaw structure or the teeth inside the Jaw.

How can this even compare to the ramifications of the dates in the video? As many have said, people have claimed we come from fish, monkeys now this? A Lemur? Damn... what a bummer this whole thing turned out to be.

Ahhh well each to their own. It is an interesting find to scientists I imagine, but to me I couldn't give a hoot. So it doesn't change how I feel about the planet.

Ok now I know this is not going to be what most is about that lemur. I saw an advertisement just now and I am highly disappointed. They hyped it up so much and in the end nobody will agree with what they present.. Someone will deny it and it will be another link to another thing and another thing and so on. It's a great find but I dont think it's global IMO. I dont think they should have made such a big deal out of it. Oh well...

I think it's a special on the new archeological find that surfaced today. You know the 47 million year old monkey fossil.

Srry, didn't see your post. Thought there was only 4 pages. Yep that's it the missing link wins the prize. My question is have we learned any thing new from this fossil or is it as we theorized it would be?

I for one, do not look forward to working 50+ years of my life. For what? For me, it's a extremely boring routine. Wake up, have shower, go to work for 8 hours, go home, repeat next day. I'm not a robot! There are lucky people who have their dream job, have a beautiful home, have all the money they need. To them, life is great. But me, the regular Joe I know there is more to life than this. There is more to life than just work and money. I crave for something interesting to happen, to stir my life up, anything that would get me out of this boring life.

Well, Tim, you're lucky then.

You and I, we're going on a trip to central Asia. We're heading deep into the Himalayas to find the yeti. So, pack your bags and get ready for a two year trip in which we find proof that the abominable snowman truly exists.

The extremely WEAK "missing link" is just that, a missing link. Linking what?
It sure don't look human, not close.

The ONLY missing link that will matter is a currently alive animal on this planet that somewhat resembles us and can talk even 5% of any human language after intense training. Though that will be an extremely weak link as well in that the language center and vocal tract should be able to produce a heck of a lot more than 5% even. And let's not get into racial dynamics... I mean MONKEY THAT TALKS in a human vocal language. Sign language doesn't count either as my dog can communicate to me when it needs to pee and doesn't need a monkey diaper either.

Anything less than what I just stated is DEFINITELY NOT a missing link, no matter what the freaky people on the 25th try to present. It's pure 100% wishful thinking until I hear a bonobo monkey vocally say "We are in this together, brother".

NO! I don't believe in evolution! Well, I do, but more on the level of skin, hair, eye color on same species or any species which can successfully breed.
There's more evidence of any factor other than evolution.

I don't know about everyone else but I now officially hate The History Channel! They didn't even wait for their stupid timer to end. Why hype up everyone with an embargo, claim to hold a press release on Monday the 25th followed by the show, and a book due for a 28th release?

They do not know effective marketing, you cannot release the event before the event has begun!!

A bunch of publicity hungry scientists in first place hyping THEMSELFS through this silly lemur thing.

I agree with others who say, this lemur doesn't proof much. I mean, have they found more fossils of this particular species except this one? can it be ruled out that this single exemplar had a genetic disorder, that caused those anatomical characteristics, which they say make it a missing link? And where are numerous other still missing links from between 47 mya and the appearance of much more recent primates, from which we have been evolved, and to which this new missing-link-lemur should have led to??
Very weak theory; for me pretty much NOTHING changes (incl. my view of human kind)! I'm very disappointed by the media, i'm disturbed even by their overhyping marketing

Gladfully i don't need to boycott anyone, since i am already boycotting them since several years by not owning a TV

Man this thread got legs pretty quick, I almost posted what you did. The real mystery here is when are they going to find the real missing link that's been flying around in a UFO for millennia.

Hopefuls were continuously informed early on the 1st or 2nd page that it's gong to be a Colin Trudge's 47 million year old monkey and now they're complaining about the anticipation. Typical.

This is better....I think anyway...

So it's definately the missing link thing then? Pfft all this for nothing.. and there timer is still going

I just saw a news repot about "IDA", the lemur-thing.
Man what a colossal let-down. When are we going to see some real evidence about the origins of Modern man; rather than this hypothetical "Monkey-Business"?
