Don't worry about that. We have a spare asshole in the White House right now.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

No. It's very cool and possibly the first deuterostome fossil but we have relatives that go back a lot further than junior here.

CBC has a decent article on it with a photomicrograph of one of the fossils. Little bugger looks a bit surprised to me.
