Missing Link Found


Adult female, male juvenile skeletons may provide closest link between humans, earliest ancestors

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University anthropologist Kristian J. Carlson today (April 8) joined an international team of six other scientists announcing discovery of the fossil remains of a new species of early man that could help rewrite the path of human evolution.

The two partial skeletons, dating from between 1.78 and 1.95 million years old, were discovered in South Africa and appear to represent features and attributes closer to humans -- the genus Homo -- than those from any other of our closest ancestors, the australopithecines. The new species, Australopithecus sediba, was announced today in the magazine Science by principal investigator Lee Berger of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and a team of six other researchers that included IU Bloomington's Carlson.

And what does this have to do with Jesus? I know of several well known academics who are Christians and believe in evolution.

Yep, only the folks that hold to the rigid fundementalist beliefs have an issue with it. The smart ones just figure "that the way He did it".

Is that a fact? I don't see it that way. Just because a group of men write a book does not make it fact. Will gays really burn in eternal hell?

Technically many people have died and came back to life. That Japanese magician dude with the coins impressed the hell out of me until I figured out how he did it.

Both sides are believers and neither side has all the facts.

What's wrong with not knowing?

Why does it matter how you see it? All that matters is what happened as part of history. You likely don't dismiss most of history, yet most of what you know about history was because it was written in a book by men.

The bible was written to control people.
L.Ron Hubbard wrote a book as well. Should we blindly believe him as well?

People should not mock Jesus. Don't hate on a historical figure because man figured out a way to use him in a corrupt manner. I understand more innocent people have been killed in the name of religion than in wars but this perversion of power is NOT the message Christ Preached when he walked the Earth.

Unless you can prove beyond a doubt that a historical figure named Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead there is no need to mock the Man

I agree that religion's main function is to control people and how they live their lives. Sometimes it appears that science is trying to do the same.


What you will find that people that have no theological back ground, they don't fully understand what the bible says, but believe everything that their religious leaders tell them to be fact.


On the other hand you have people that have no scientific background and have no true sense of science, and have now way of verifying what is considered to be scientific fact. But they believe everything that someone tells them to be fact.


I think that both science and religion has been corrupted to a point and don't have absolute faith in either.
