While the Daily Mail states, seemingly as fact: Human evolution just got a million years older: woman-ape fossil skeleton is closest thing yet to ‘missing link’, Richard Dawkins’ blog ponders the question raised by theories in the journal Science, out today: Did apes descend from us?
So basically this icon of our age…
…could well be total nonsense.
Of course it is. The Theory of Evolution is nonsense.
UPDATE 3/10/09 – I see the Mail’s headline now reads, “First ape woman suggests human ancestors may have started walking in pursuit of sex.”
“Some scientists” apparently believe this. Other creatures have managed to survive perfectly well by staying on all fours (sixes, eights, etc.). Not necessarily when ‘in the act’ of course, but that’s a different matter altogether.
