Scientists identify missing link between apes and early humans

Scientists identify missing link between apes and early humans

Scientists have confirmed a key ’missing link’ in the human family tree that helps explain the evolution of upright apes into humans. The new ’family tree member’ Australopithecus sediba, found 10 years ago at a site in Malapa, South Africa, is believed to have been a separate species that lived 1.95 to 1.78 million years ago. The species finds a place between the upright apes and Homo habilis.

I give it a year before it comes up that this is bogus just like the last “ missing link”

Of course they did....1. Where are the other millions of examples that show the species transitioning between man and ape? If it happened over billions of years why can’t we find thousands of generations of remains that so this transition? There has never been any evidence produced that shows evolution from a single celled being that somehow became a self-replicating cell to transition from let’s say a fish into a bird or any variation thereof. Just like the evolution of the guy there is no way to have a partial lie or an evolutionary hold that transitions into sight. Species of all levels that were conscious have eyes. They stay statistically the odds of something as complex as the eyeball being made by random chance spontaneously From bacteria is the equivalent of a tornado going into a junkyard and perfectly assembling a Boeing 747. We have 3 billion codes that comprise our DNA. DNA is in every cell of the body. The mechanism in the blueprint in one cell is thousands of times more information then we have an all of the computers and all of the libraries and all of the world. Think about that....Every single one of our codes is unique just to us. The odds of this happening by random chance is one 1:1 with 40,000 zeros behind it. I grew up being told and 100% bought into evolution and Darwinian it’s him. Please research yourself but evolution is a complete hoax. There is species adaptation, undoubtedly. But for one species to transition to another over billions of years think of the fossil record that would create? I appreciate insights in a discussion regarding this and others thoughts. Thank you for reading

And then they are going to say "But where is the missing link between this one and that one"

News outlets need to stop using the term "missing link" it is not used by evolutionary scientists anymore and causes confusion for the public. It misrepresents the evolutionary tree, and scientists understanding of human origins. There is no such thing as a missing link, it is only a clickbait term.

This is just media clickbait. There are hundreds of subspecies of human before Homo Sapiens. This is just scientists discovering another one.
