Really Old Homo Found in South African Cave
And it ain't Sir Elton John.
The nerdy/wonky anthropological debate begins: Is he Australopithecus (like Lucy, a tree climber whose remains date back over 3.2 million years) or Homo (a land runner). It appears to have some characteristics of both, and it's between 1.78 and 1.95 million years old. For now, it's being classified as "Australopithecus sediba."
Those of us who breathe through our noses and walk fully erect (our spines, not - you know) think THIS is an interesting debate. Do you know what is less interesting? Evolution vs Creationism. *yawning*
(Do you believe in evolution? No? No matter. Evolution believes in you!)
Do you know how many conspiracies, frauds, and plots would have to be in place for evolution to be fictitious? Yet some "people," (I use the term loosely) still refuse to accept it. Do you get why I need to use profanity?
Ask yourself the same question about Creationism: How many conspiracies, frauds, and plots would have to be in place for Creationism to be fictitious? Answer: ZERO.
Ergo - go for the banana, not the manna.
