Darwinius Massilae fossil
You may have heard about this recent fossil find that has been touted as a "missing link" and that is destined to create a revolution in evolutionary biology.
Turns out... not so much.
Go back to your lives, citizens.
Agreed. As I write on my blog, there's a weird commercial aspect to this find that's disturbing. I'm especially disappointed to see Sir David Attenborough sucked in, as I generally like his work.
Ida is, for one thing, only remotely located on the human human evolutionary chain, and that's assuming she's actually what they say she is, which isn't altogether clear yet.
