Haven't the evos at FR been assuring us for years that the fusion of the two ape chromosomes was a fact? On at least one recent thread they even had pictures pointing to where the centromere would have been. How can these evo scientists just now be announcing proof of what your team has long assured me HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVEN?
I don't think anything can be proved in science. There are only theories that best fit the evidence.
What's interesting about this, though, is that science predicted fusion, and lo, here we have more evidence for it.
It really is too bad, though, that there isn't some book somewhere that already contains all the answers. Instead, scientists have to constantly check their theories and do research.
I'm no "evo" but the discovery of the fusion was discovered three years ago. So that indeed is "years" of assurance, if the discovery means what the discoverers say it means.
