“Ida” Not the Missing Link After All

It has taken only two months for paleontologists to discover a new fossil proving that "Ida" is not the missing link it was claimed to be in The Link documentary shown on The History Channel in May. This just in from ScienceDaily.com - a website supporting evolution:
According to new research published online in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B (Biological Sciences) on July 1, 2009, a new fossil primate from Myanmar (previously known as Burma) suggests that the common ancestor of humans, monkeys and apes evolved from primates in Asia, not Africa as many researchers believe.
According to Dr. Chris Beard - a paleontologist at Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a member of the international team of researchers behind the Myanmar anthropoid findings - the new primate, Ganlea megacanina, shows that early anthropoids originated in Asia rather than Africa. These early Asian anthropoids differed radically from adapiforms like Ida, indicating that Ida is more closely related to modern lemurs than it is to monkeys, apes and humans.
So it's taken only a couple of months for Ida to join Cro-Magnon Man, Neandertal Man, Java Man, Piltdown Man, Nebraska Man, Nutcracker Man, Homo habilis and Lucy as another failed "missing link." Now we wonder how long it will take for Ganlea megacanina to be added to the list.

Comments

It doesn't surprise me that "new research" is showing that earlier evolutionary surmisings about the origins of man were inaccurate. So-called evolutionary research is often deemed inaccurate -- by evolutionists' own admission.

I recently saw a dinosaur display in a museum that proudly proclaimed scientists once believed the fossils to be lizard-like, but now they believe them to have had feathers. Let me translate that: When it was popular to say dinosaurs were lizards with scales, scientists said that. But now that finding "intermediary" forms is all the rage, they pretend the very same fossils to have had feathers, not scales. Scales, feathers, feathers, scales. Now you see them, now you don't.

So much for the accuracy of scientific findings! You can be sure that all these supposed "findings" won't be removed from textbooks, either, but will be taught as facts in the classroom.
