That's just the fossils that were mentioned. As I pointed out scientists hypothesized common ancestry with chimps based on the fossil record at a point roughly around 7MY ago. That was backed up by genetics.<quoted text> And that only goes back to 4.4 mil yrs ago.
Again, perfectly normal. There is no way to definitively determine ancestry without DNA, so we may never know for sure whether that fossil is a direct descendent or from a nearby line that branched off. But what is evident is the general pattern of change that was successfully predicted by evolution.in Ethiopia like I said...and they are still arguing whether that is even part of the hominid line.
The fact is that we have ape-like fossils going back millions of years. The general trend observed in geological strata indicates a gradual modification of characteristics the further up the strata we go, getting closer and closer in appearance to todays great apes. Using comparative anatomy we find that chimp skeletons are most similar to ours, followed by gorillas, then orangutans. This same pattern of similarity is coincidentally observed in genetics. Calculations based on mutation rates indicate common ancestry around 6-7MY ago. These are the facts.Like I said before...how about some accountability rather than speculation before making statements as though they are facts.
The alternatives to evolution proposed thus far are:
1 - Goddidit with magic to make everything LOOK just like this.
2 - Infinite Force's idea is that alien UFO's keep dropping off new animals every 1 million years. He can show you a youtube vid of sun shining off dust and other airborne particles while close to a wall which he claims are vast swarms of alien spacecraft which have been otherwise undetected by billions of dollars worth of orbital satellites.
Ergo evolution is the only theory making successful scientific predictions here.
