The evidence they point to includes an australopith's little brain (with some curiously modern features), apelike shoulders, and arms adapted to climbing in trees—attached to a bizarrely modern hand with the precision grip of a toolmaker.

I don't want any BS about me quoting out of context either. :tbo:

OK...but you cite some very strong pro-evolution evidence and then title the thread "Ape/Human Hybrid: Refuting Evolution." Were you being sarcastic, or challenging people to try to refute evolution, or what? I don't get your point.

I used the smilie just for you, too. It was sarcasm, and I was intentionally quoting out of context.

WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM ME???:tongueout:

Any new find is going to have its authenticity challenged. Scientists enjoy proving each other wrong.

I kind of think that the comment you are responding to was made without even reading the article given that the very next statement after paragraph containing the originally quoted portion is

In a science known for its contentiousness, such a claim will surely not go unchallenged. But no one disputes that the Malapa fossils are unprecedented.

It takes time to scrutinize such findings.

The Piltdown Man discovery took roughly 40 years before it was found a hoax.

The tools for examination and analysis were primitive 90 years ago. It was pretty quickly identified as a hoax *by other scientists* shortly after a new dating technique became available. Science again proved itself to be self-correcting.

I suspect that a forgery today (a century later) would have to be much more elaborate than piltdown was.

Much more elaborate. However, as forensic ability has gotten better, so has the ability to fabricate a forgery.

I agree though, a conclusive study shouldn't take nearly as long.

If legitimate it is a great find.

I suspect the authenticity will not be as contested as the "okay, where does it fit in?" discussion. I've read some accounts of the taxonomical discussions being pretty heated as to where a new species fit.

Her teeth look surprisingly straight and I'll bet she'd be terrified of a Sony Bravia. Looks like a winner by GT standards.

-ArtificialGrape

As I recall from the previous sixty-some arguments about Piltdown Man, its authenticity was challenged within a year of discovery. It just wasn't definitively proven to be a hoax until later.

Even so, a hoax isn't a knock against science. It's a hoax. Orson Wells reading "War of the Worlds" on the radio doesn't decredit astronomy.

The first link is broken.

What's your point, anyway? It's a fact that global warming occurs. Are you trying to argue that no scientists disagree with the political agenda to make us believe it's man made? Because the Forbes article doesn't support that assertion.

Q: What do elephants use for Tampax?

A: Sheep.

Q: Why do elephants have trunks?

A: Because sheep don’t have strings.
