Earlier this month researchers unveiled what is being promoted as the oldest known skeleton of a human ancestor–suggesting that it may be the missing link.

Ardipithecus Ramidus is the official name of the specimen, but her friends can call her “Ardi.”

Dr. David Menton, is a creation anatomist and lecturer for Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum and he takes a look at her story.

  1. If we go back further in the Darwinian Fairy-tale, why would a small mammal, like a rat, ever need to gradually “progress” to an ape? Rats are very stout and resilient. They are much more fit to survive than a large-boy-mass ape or pre-ape. Most of the great-apes on the earth are going extinct due to their lack of genetic strength. If Darwinianism were true, I’d stay a rat, like Dawkins.
