Remember about 6 months ago the news was proclaimed?
THE MISSING LINK HAS BEEN FOUND!
I wrote about it on this very blog:
They Found The Missing Link? Well, No, Not Really.
Well guess what? The missing link was......NOT the missing link. Oops.
Controversial fossil not missing link
Absolutely too funny. You know it killed them to have to admit that this fossil was not the missing link. They so badly want to find one in order to prove their little theory.
It is also interesting to note the difference between how this was covered compared to how the original "discovery" was covered. There wasn't a news source that didn't trumpet the finding of the missing link. I had to do asearch for news of the announcement that this fossil wasn't the missing link after hearing a rumor to that effect.
In May they had a documentary on cable TV about the discovery. Will they have one showing why it isn't the missing link? I doubt it. When science starts to realize that they know about 1% of what there is to know about the earth, and the inhabitants therein, they'll be much better off.
And I still say the missing link is Ben Stiller!
