All hail the mighty BEARD!!! (I don't mean me...I mean my facial hair. It has begun to take over)

Australopithicus sebida remains encased in a rock. It will take a few years probably to fully remove them from their rocky tomb, but this will be quite exciting once we have them out to examine and make casts of.

The evolution of mobile animal life pushed back by 30 million years.

How about further evidence for the link between birds and dinosaurs?

Or

How about inserting an ancient gene into a modern strain of bacteria and seeing what will happen?

That's amazing... wow... to realize that these fossils have lasted 47 million years... that's time enough for mountain ranges to erode... I wanna get fossilized when I die Smile That'd be sweet.

This seemed appropriate given my new location, CT. There are some great dinosaur track-ways here too and I can't wait to see them.

It reads funny at first. I thought they were suggesting that these were the oldest arthropods at only 230 Ma, but these are the oldest arthropods ever preserved in amber. Gall mites and the antennae of a fly.

So, Neanderthals may have been a 90/10 split of right vs. left-handed individuals too. The implications are related to brain function and may indicate brain development that *might* suggest the capacity for language. Neanderthals also had larger brains than coeval Homo sapiens.

Cool, they may have found an ancestor of Northern Europeans in Spain.

7,000 year-old human DNA

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Quote:The cavemen lived during the Mesolithic period and were hunter-gatherers, as determined by an ornament one of the skeletons was holding.

Huh? What does that mean - an ornament? Wouldn't it be more indicative of hunting-gathering if he were holding a tool or a weapon? I wish this wasn't such a tease... now I really want to see this "ornament". Shy

Maybe they are misinterpreting the object Consider maybe he was holding an iPod. A primitive one, of course. Wink

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.
