Missing Link Found

I came across a report about the discovery of "the missing link". Yes, the missing link that Darwin's theory has been missing, it is found. Read the report here:

Today, at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, a revolutionary discovery -- one that will stand as a milestone for paleontologists and evolutionists everywhere -- was announced. Scientists based at the University of Oslo have discovered “Ida,” also known as Darwinius masillae, a 47-million-year-old fossil that has been proclaimed the “missing link” in connecting human skeletal structure to early mammals.

Scientists found Ida in Messel Pit, Germany and soon found out that she is about twenty times older than most fossils related to human evolution. What makes Ida so special is that despite her classification as an early prosimian (lemurs), she has certain undeniable human characteristics such as forward facing eyes and even an opposable thumb.

This is an exciting and validating day for scientists everywhere. Broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough has said: “This little creature is going to show us our connection with all the rest of the mammals.”

Head on over to The Link for pictures, video and more information about Ida and the team of researchers behind her. Also don’t miss what’s up at the open source journal PLoS One to read about the scientists’ findings.

Hmmmnnn... what do you think?

hmmm... i think they're just giving the confused minds more reasons to be confused. why resort to darwin's theory of evolution when the Bible is so clear about the origin of man and of the world? ^-^ 47 million years? that totally contradicts the whole sense of the world's history!

47 million years is just a fraction of the world's history, time is not that easy to understand but 47 million years is within the comprehensible span. The age of our solar system is 4.55 billion years (plus or minus about 1%). The earth is slightly younger than that, say, 3.8 billion years old. So 47 million years could easily fit into the picture. When we say "history" we do not only mean the written one. The history we know in school is too shallow to give a complete picture of the world.

I'm sorry to say that the bible, when read many times, comes out as a big jumble of contradictions. Sad but true.

Peace :)
