Google Homepage Celebrates Major Fossil Find - UPDATED!!

The shot below is from The Guardian, "Fossil Ida: Extraordinary Find is 'Missing Link' in Human Evolution."

But if you did a Google search yesterday, you must have noticed the search engine's "Ida" logo. Dan Collins has the image
here, plus this, "In the latest news, paleontologists examining the contents of the stomach have discovered material that they believe might be Charles Johnson’s spooge. Tests are ongoing." Charles Johnson weighs in here.

See also, "Scientists: 'Missing Link' Fossil Not Worth Media Hype," and "Celebrated Fossil Shown to World."

UPDATE: Charles Johnson responds to this post: "Donald Douglas has been yipping at me like a crack-addled chihuahua for months ..."

Assuming evolution to be the absolute truth, that thing is so far back from humanity that it being a missing link is almost laughable. This is reaching.

I'm just curious, why is an extinct monkey so special? Hell, give me 2 months and a 20 ga. and I'll make the Rhesus monkey a media favorite for the next hundred years.

The size of this animal was that of a small cat.

If this was our great-grand-father, Donald, I eat my hat! :-)
