    This should create an interesting debate.
  2. Overall what it paints for human evolution is a "chaotic kind of looking evolutionary tree rather than this heroic march that you see with the cartoons of an early ancestor evolving into some intermediate and eventually unto us," Spoor said in a phone interview from a field office of the Koobi Fora Research Project in northern Kenya.


    This story does nothing to dispute the theory of evolution, it just says it might not be as straight a line as some people think. It still maintains the fossils came from 1.4 million years ago, contrasting the belief of creationists who believe the Earth is only 250 years old, or whatever.

    But if you were referring to the debate on how incredibly dumb people have to be not to believe in evolution, then, yes, that's always a good debate.
