    I'd wager that it was good in God's own words and 100% after it's own kind. :thumbsup:

    More than likely you're correct. What about Lucy being 50% as indicated in the same article?

    Again, 50% what? Do you not know that 99.9% of our DNA matches the DNA of the fruit fly? As it does the Chimp, Alligator, Skunk or any other of all
    God's creatures.

    The Fruit Fly in You

    NASA-supported researchers are going to send fruit flies to the International Space Station to learn what space travel does to the genes of astronauts.

    How can that be the missing link between primates and humans? It has a massive tail and it's under 2 feet, for heaven's sake! So an ape went all tiny with a long tail then lost it's tail and got big again? How in the world does that connect humans and primates? I think these people are sniffing some pretty strong chemicals.

    That explains my need to hover around fruit bowls and an unnatural phobia of being crushed!

    It explains my desire to be drawn towards tape and other sticky paper.

    I think the 95% is in reference to the fossil being intact, not the percentage of "lemur" in the fossil.

    It appears 5 percent of the missing link remains missing ;)

    Shortly some actual research will be done, they will release a paper and we'll all find out it's still a lemur.
