    It appears as though our distant ancestors could walk before growing a large brain pan.

      It is very interesting!  But the world is only 6000 years old, Mark, who are you trying to fool?  No need to answer, they'll probably be along shortly!  LOL!

        Big Man is the third new report of hominid remains in less than a year, which together throw light on hominid development from 4.4 to 1.9 million years ago

        wow interesting...

          But if Jesus is the alpha & omega then how come this half monkey - half human came before him? roll

            Simple!  Big Man is the alpha; the omega came later in "Lucy".  Alpha and Omega was the union, and in between was a special parthenogenesis.
            lol

        Yep.  Satan put those fossils there to trick humans into believing that God didn't create the earth 6000 years ago.  That Satan is up to his same old deception.  He is such a trickster. lol lol lol!!!

    I wanted to remind everyone of how "science" works, and point out that this isn't just "another fossil", but that this was another TEST that evolution was put through.

    The #1 most uber important part of the Scientific Method is peer review, and the repeated testing that goes along with it.

    That being said ANY time a new fossil is found, it is a test that could disprove evolution. All we'd need to do to disprove evolution is find a single (well, probably a few more than a single, at this stage) fossil out of place chronologically or just in the wrong place of the world.

    Being that this new fossil fit COMPLETELY and in EVERY way with the evolutionary theory... is evolution a fact?

    Not yet! It will never be a fact: just like all theories, it can only ever be a theory; a theory is merely a hypothesis that has yet to be shown incorrect. Just like the theory of gravity, the theory of thermodynamics, the theory of relativity, the atomic theory, the germ theory, and every other theory out there, evolution is forever doomed to be "only" a theory. These theories have been thrown through "Meat Grinder"-like testing, and have yet to be shown incorrect.

    (being a theory, in science, is big stuff!)

    This fossil further reinforced the theory of evolution by simply not being in the wrong area or time.

    Good job, Darwin!
