Scientists unveil fossil of 47 million-year-old primate, Darwinius masillae BY SAMANTHA STRONG AND RICH SCHAPIRO DAILY NEWS WRITERS Tuesday, May 19, 2009 Feast your eyes on what a group of scientists call the Holy Grail of human evolution. A team of researchers Tuesday unveiled an almost perfectly intact fossil of a 47 million-year-old primate they say represents the long-sought missing link between humans and apes. Officially known as Darwinius masillae, the fossil of the lemur-like creature dubbed Ida shows it had opposable thumbs like humans and fingernails instead of claws. Scientists say the cat-sized animal's hind legs offer evidence of evolutionary changes that led to primates standing upright - a breakthrough that could finally confirm Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. http://articles.nydailynews.com/2009-05-19/news/17922526_1_human-evolution-missing-link-jorn-hurum "With experience, no explanation is necessary, without experience, no explanation is possible." #board-9931 #board-19369 #board-21675 My opinion is just that, my opinion.
