Skip to comments.Israeli researchers: 'Lucy' is not direct ancestor of humans

Tel Aviv University anthropologists say they have disproven the theory that "Lucy" - the world-famous 3.2-million-year-old Australopithecus afarensis skeleton found in Ethiopia 33 years ago - is the last ancestor common to humans and another branch of the great apes family known as the "Robust hominids."
The jaw bone of Lucy and the jaw bone of Australopithecus afarensis.

Oh here is something that may be the event mentioned on the show about when scientists started to study meteors as coming from the sky.
In 1883, many people were certain the sky was falling and the world was coming to an end. The Great Leonid Showers in 1883 gave spectators a dazzling display of fireworks that rained from the sky. It marked the beginning of scientific studies into meteors. The study of meteors is called meteoritics.

Put a big enough engine on ANYTHING and you can ‘fly’ it!
No that is not the case, and ther were acually two amulets dna 4 ft models of both flew, as did the model of a wooden plane found in Eygypt over 100 years ago.

What we're gonna do right here is go back, way back, back into time. When the only people that existed were troglodytes...cavemen...cavewomen...Neanderthal..troglodytes
Let's take the average cave man at home, listening to his stereo. Sometimes he'd get up, try to do his thing. He'd begin to move, something like this:
"Dance...dance". When he got tired of dancing alone, he'd look in the mirror: "Gotta find a woman gotta find a woman gotta find a woman gotta find a woman".
He'd go down to the lake where all the woman would be swimming or washing clothes or something. He'd look around and just reach in and grab one. "Come here...come here". He'd grab her by the hair. You can't do that today, fellas, cause it might come off. You'd have a piece of hair in your hand and she'd be swimming away from you (ha-ha).
This one woman just lay there, wet and frightened. He said: "Move...move". She got up. She was a big woman. BIG woman. Her name was Bertha. Bertha Butt. She was one of the Butt sisters. He didn't care. He looked up at her and said:
"Sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me!".
She looked down on him. She was ready to crush him, but she began to like him. She said:
"I'll sock it to ya, Daddy". He said: "Wha?". She said: "I'll sock it to ya, Daddy".
You know what he said? He started it way back then. I wouldn't lie to you. When she said "I'll sock it to ya, Daddy" he said "Right on! Right on! Hotpants! Hotpants! Ugh...ugh...ugh"
The last of the trilobites disappeared in the mass extinction at the end of the Permian 250 million years ago
Yep, it’s a lie when they claim that they were in existence over 200 million years ago.
Find me a more recent trilobite and I'll buy you lunch. Seen one recently by the sea shore?
Can’t find something that is a lie.
I'm not sure I follow. Are you arguing that Trilobites never existed or that they existed, but more recently than 250 million years ago?
If it's the latter, surely you can find a recent specimen. Right?
More recent than your 250 million years.
You seem to have sent me the wrong link. Your article argues (erroneously, not that it matters) that trilobites were intelligently designed, rather than evolved. It says nothing about trilobites living less than 250 million years ago, a solidly demonstrable fact that I think even hard-core adherents of intelligent design would accept. I think you're confused.
Psst, psst. Creationism means young earth. Get it?
No, that's not true. There are young earth creationists and there are old earth creationists. I understand that you are a young earther, but nothing in the article you linked to argues against a 250 million year extinction date for trilobites. I'm afraid you're going to have to try again.
Trilobites are all dead just like dinaosaurs. Because you and evolutionists say they are millions of years old doesn’t make it so. For you to ask me to show you a younger one is really hilarious.
You would think that after watching all those episodes of the Flintstone’s that people would understand that man and dinosaur existed at the very same time.
And dinosaurs are dead just like James Brown is dead. But not even you would claim dinosaurs and James Brown lived at the same time. The fact is, trilobites are consistently found in Paleozoic strata, layers of rock much deeper -- and consequently older -- than the rock in which we find fossils of dinosaurs.
Because you and evolutionists say they are millions of years old doesnt make it so.
You're correct. The fact that multiple independent dating methods all come up with the same date for the fossils makes it so.
For you to ask me to show you a younger one is really hilarious.
Why is that? If you can find a trilobite and find a way to come up with a verifiable date for it that's less than 250 million years old, then you've won the argument. Until then, you're just spouting rhetoric.
Look who is spouting rhetoric. You have no facts, only theory, to back up your claim. Besides, God's word is verifiable. An evolutionist's words aren't.
What are you talking about? You can go anywhere in the world, cut through early-to-mid Paleozoic rock and find trilobites. That isn't theory, that's a fact.
Besides, God's word is verifiable.
What does God have to do with this? The Bible I have sitting on my desk seems to lack a Book of Trilobites.
