Google celebrates the debut of the “missing link” fossil. However, it’s not so much the link to homo sapiens, but rather ancient primates to modern primates. Google links to this National Geographic article, but I read CNN’s take. Both very interesting. Here’s CNN’s break down.
- A 47-million-year-old fossil is being heralded as an early human ancestor
- Scientist says the find is the “most complete primate fossil before human burial”
- The fossil was discovered in the 80s, but was split between collections until now
Either way you take it, it’s a very intersting find. With all that’s going in space and now underground, it’s a cool time for science and understanding the human race’s relation to our God-given world.
