47-million-year-old human link revealed


news.yahoo.com

"The link they would have said until now is missing... it is no longer missing," he said.

Ida gives a glimpse into a time when the world was just taking its present shape. Dinosaurs were extinct, the Himalayas were forming and a huge range of mammals thrived in vast jungles.

According to the international team, Ida had suffered a badly broken wrist and that this might have been her undoing. The theory is that while drinking from the Messel lake she was overcome by carbon dioxide fumes and fell in.

They found the missing link!
apparently they found it like 16 years ago, but just figured out what it was recently. It's what the whole history channel thing was about. It's in almost perfect condition, missing only 5% of the skeleton, and it is believed to be the 47 million year old trace back to other animals we've been looking for

This is quite interesting and would like to see the History Channel presentation (probably going to be the first time I was ever quite excited about seeing something on TV).

Something that I saw that seemed interesting was the co-relation between apes and humans and yet it has a tail which I don't know why, but just find rather fascinating. Kind of makes me wonder how much the chart below might change.

This is not the missing link... Just another fanciful claim!

Meh!

One of the most significant finds is that Darwinius masillae has opposable thumbs. That characteristic allowed primates to advance to tool usage.

This is amazing. So can the creationists accept evolution now?

Finally.

Now they want to tell us we've only been here a couple of thousand years. Tsk tsk, this will be their undoing.

They should just give up and reveal our "actual" ancient history, it would do people some good to know where we really came from.

Don't feel bad. There's a thread already posted in here. I think it's fascinating but hardly a strong evidence.

The actual news was "POSSIBLE" missing link found. Not "ABSOLUTE PROOF".

So the bones are somewhat like that of a Lemur. Why did evolution not dramatically change the Lemurs that are all over the jungles today?

In my opinion, this is nothing more than wishful thinking.
