    Scientists have unveiled a 47-million-year-old fossilised skeleton of a monkey hailed as the missing link in human evolution.


    special news conference in New York.

    The discovery of the 95%-complete 'lemur monkey' - dubbed Ida - is described by experts as the "eighth wonder of the world".

    They say its impact on the world of palaeontology will be "somewhat like an asteroid falling down to Earth".

    Researchers say proof of this transitional species finally confirms Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, and the then radical, outlandish ideas he came up with during his time aboard the Beagle.

    Sir David Attenborough said Darwin "would have been thrilled" to have seen the fossil - and says it tells us who we are and where we came from

    i don't worship anything or anyone......

    god created "man" in his own image....he also created everything else....if you believe in the teachings of the bible....

    anyway for something to evolve it needs to be created first....by something or someone....

    evolution is a natural course of nature....just like the last great ice age that reduced the human population....just like the people who survived the bubonic plague...they have something going for them....i thought you were a christian?
