About a month and a half ago the evolutionist where beaming with the news they may have found their missing link. 6 weeks later not a peep can be heard, wounder why? Here is an example of the hype that was spreading through out the WordPress evolutionist blogs:
blog 1 “Scientists have discovered an exquisitely preserved ancient primate fossil that they believe forms a crucial “missing link” between our own evolutionary branch of life and the rest of the animal kingdom.”
blog 2 “Scientists are calling this fossil the “missing link” in human evolution.”
blog 3 “Today, scientists have unveiled a new transitional fossil a nearly perfectly preserved, 47 million year old human ancestor they’re calling “Ida” that despite being a primate, I happen to think looks a lot like a dinosaur.”
blog 4 “According to paleontologist Jorn Hurum “Ida” is a crutial part to the evolution of man or “the missing link”. “Ida”, known among the scientific community as Darwinius massillae.”
Now we have an article on scientificamerican.com that disputes the ‘missing link’: “Not only is Ida too old to reveal anything about the evolution of humans in particular (the earliest putative human ancestors are a mere seven million years old), but she may not even be particularly closely related to the so-called anthropoid branch of the primate family tree that includes monkeys, apes and us.”
So is the link still missing? Do evolutionist even care if one is ever found? Do evolutionists even care if any evidence is ever found?
On a side note, I love the way the scientists jumped at a chance to immortalize their god by naming a bunch of dead bones after him – Darwinius massillae.
