    Prehistoric monkeys rafted across the Atlantic to South America - CNN

    A crew of now-extinct monkeys made a treacherous transatlantic journey on a natural raft from Africa to settle in South America around 35 million years ago, according to a study of fossilized teeth found in Peru.

    It's believed the prehistoric Ucayalipithecus monkeys made the more than 900-mile trip across the Atlantic (a narrower ocean at the time) on floating islands of vegetation that broke off from coastlines, possibly during a tropical storm.

    Sure, they did. Monkeys in a months long trans-Atlantic float trip might need food. I wonder where they got it?

    I think it obvious. They fished and ate the bananas and oranges in the vegetation.

    We don't have to reject the logic of these monkey sailors to defend faith. We can embrace science as well
