Instead of persecuting him for seeing a cross, I'm supposed to believe that I evolved from that?
That's the equivelent of being persecuted for believing in Christ.

The funny part to me is that so-called educated people actually think that is the skull of a human ancestor. I still don't understand why some people actually prefer to believe they are related to monkeys, instead of believing that they are made in the image of an almighty, perfect Creator.
Like my uncle said before about those who believe we evolved from apes, "You might be related to monkeys, but I certainly am not."

A “missing link “ supposedly has been found, that is 1.98 Million years old. Although it still looks like a monkey head, I found it curious that it has a cross on the bridge of it’s nose.

Look over to the right side and down just a tiny bit, I see a little girl with curly hair. Zoom in towards the left, I see a mountain with a man almost to the top who is about to fall. LOL

So I think we have 2 real options here:
- the mark isn't really a mark, but what is there is the result of the millions of years being underground and exposed to geologic process
- a crudely inscribed symbol by a contemporary of the creature, or near contemporary (while the bone was still soft). In this case, the craptastic drawing skills should be noted. My son, when 2, could make better crosses than that. That would truly be a tantalizing peek into the mind of the creature that made the mark.
i vote for the former, but the latter makes for some interesting thoughts and contemplations.
