Theory of evolution becomes slightly more credible

    There has been a momentous paleontological find in Ethiopia which, with the proper vetting, might become part of a public school curriculum.

    This is bull. Don't you dare bring science into our class rooms!!!!! Humans were made by God and no amount of evidence to the contrary changes this. It's be like if a math teacher was telling you 1+1=2 but the bible said 1+1=4.532. Which one are you going to believe?

    This new guy, with the sloped forehead, looks a bit like Glenn Beck.

    Fascinating stuff. Ardi predates Lucy by about a million years and scientists have been working on the discovery for 17 years.

    Interesting discovery. Aside from Carl Everett and a few other saps, who truly disbelieves in evolution? Fish in a barrel, and a small barrel at that.

    Virtually all politicians back ideas they don't really believe in; that's politics. Mike Huckabee, for example, may have a brain made of vegemite, but I bet if you had a private conversation with him he'd confess that he just doesn't know. Political convenience.

    Things have sure changed since I took anthro in the '60's, lots of new info; but what motivates politicians hasn't changed since JFK, LBJ and Nixon roamed the Earth.

    "Luuuuuucy! ... ... I'm bones!"

    I hope that they can confirm this as the earliest human ancestor. Then they can zero out that silly carbon dating scale at 7,500 years, where it belongs.

    I've avoided it like the plague.

    Lots of folks are more interested in backing an argument, no matter what their doubts, than they are in the truth. Blogs and boards are the worst for that; this one is no different. And some people just won't, or can't, let go. When it comes to sports, I can handle that. Politics, not so much.

    Or, I'll put it this way. I get lots of facts on sports from this website, things I didn't know, and it's easy to separate facts from opinion. But when it comes to politics, posters just yell at each other and put each other down. Too much heat, not enough light.

    And that, obviously, is just my opinion.
