Scientists have discovered what is being heralded as the long sought “missing link” — a 47-million-year-old fossilized skeleton of a monkey called Ida that is 95% complete. It is believed to show a direct connection between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom. Of course, anyone who has a master’s in creationist science in Texas or runs as a GOP candidate for president can tell you that the researchers have been duped. Since the Earth is only 10,000 years old, the radiometric dating is obviously wrong by roughly 47 million years and evolution is just a god-hating, atheist-advancing theory.
Ida was originally found in a rich fossil quarry near Frankfurt.
What is amazing is that this fossil was hanging for 20 years on the wall of a collector’s home. It eventually was shown to an expert in Hamburg who notified the world. It is now being called the “eighth wonder of the world” — except in Texas where it is being called a dead monkey.
Bill Nye might want to be consulted before the bring Ida to the Lone Star state.
Id is a 95%-complete lemur monkey.
Part of the delay was due to the dealer’s demand for more than $1 million (£660,000) — it took months to raise the unprecedented sum and Ida was brought to Oslo. It will be shown for one day in London, making this the most traveled 47-million-year-old lemur in history.
