Some more powerful evidence for human evolution that will make Jeebus cry.
metatarsal: any bone of the foot between the ankle and the toes
I already have a post about a recently announced discovery (a fossil of a metatarsal bone) that shows our ancestors could walk upright three million years ago.
I just found an excellent article about the same thing (Lucy's feet) at this blog.
"Lucy has a mixture of ape-like and human features because she is part of the way evolutionarily between our ape common ancestor and humans. Lucy is what all creationists dread and try desperately to deny, a transitional fossil."
"Paleontologists continue to pull more and more fossils out of the ground, each one a little validation of the fact of evolution while teaching us more about the small details of the course of evolution."
