It looks like another AIG "explanation" has gone out the window. A few years ago, a new fossil ape, Sahelanthropus tchadensis, was found in Chad. As with all fossil apes that they cannot stretch the truth to make a "fully modern human" out of, they deny that it has ANY relationship to humans. Here, let them tell it. http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs2002/1012toumai.asp Well, as it turns out, there have been aditional finds that expand the knowledge of this creature. And it turns out that these new finds reinforce the idea that this is a human ancestor more recent than the human/chimp split. Brunet et al, New material of the earliest hominid from the Upper Miocene of Chad, Nature 434, 752-755 (7 April 2005) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=15815627&dopt=Citation So now I must extend the challenge to AIG to publically display this new information on their website, publicizing these new findings with the same zeal that they publicized the disagreements when there was only a single specimen. Of course this will never happen. Not with out a distorting spin.
