|APE TO HUMAN EVOLUTION:...IS IT A SELF-EVIDENT TRUTH?....DARWIN'S MISSING LINK NOW IS 47 MILLION YEARS OLD primate fossil skeleton...|

Jorn Hurum of the Museum of
Natural History in New York and the University of Oslo shows a slide of
a 47-million-year-old primate fossil known as Ida at a news conference
in New York on Tuesday.
Scientists said the monkey-like creature, about 58 cm long specimen of
fossil primate ever found
in Germany’s Messel Pit, a crater rich in Eocene Epoch fossils
could be the "missing link" in apt to human evolution.....

modern evolutionary synthesis, which combined Darwin's theory of
natural selection with

these processes occur, have been uncontroversial among biologists.

Importance of 47-million-year-old
primate fossil skeleton found in 1983 not known until now....
20 May 2009 : Luis Torres De La Llosa: New York: Mike Segar, Reuters
Scientists in New York unveiled Tuesday the skeleton of what they said
could be the common ancestor to humans, apes and other primates.
The tiny creature, officially known as Darwinius masillae but dubbed
Ida, lived 47 million years ago and is unusually well preserved, missing
only part of a leg, or five per cent of the skeleton.
The finding, described Tuesday in the PloS ONE scientific journal, was
displayed at a press conference at New York’s Natural History Museum,
and is due to be the subject of a documentary on the History Channel,
BBC and other broadcasters.
Organizers said scientists led by Norway’s fossil expert, Prof. Jorn
Hurum, worked for two years on Ida, first discovered in 1983 by private
collectors who failed to understand her importance — and split the bones
into two lots.
The monkey-like creature, about 58 centimetres long, was preserved
through the ages in Germany’s Messel Pit, a crater rich in Eocene Epoch
Although bearing a long tail, she had several human characteristics,
including an opposable thumb, short arms and legs, and forward facing
eyes. She also lacked two key elements of modern lemurs: a grooming claw
and a row of lower teeth known as the toothcomb.
“This is the first link to all humans — truly a fossil that links world
heritage,” Hurum said in a statement.
David Attenborough, the renowned British naturalist and broadcaster,
said the “little creature is going to show us our connection with all
the rest of the mammals.”
“The link they would have said until now is missing … it is no longer
missing,” he said.
Ida gives a glimpse into a time when the world was just taking its
present shape. Dinosaurs were extinct, the Himalayas were forming and a
huge range of mammals thrived in vast jungles.
According to the international team, Ida had suffered a badly broken
wrist and this might have been her undoing. The theory is that while
drinking from the Messel lake she was overcome by carbon dioxide fumes
and fell in.
“Ida slipped into unconsciousness, was washed into the lake and sunk to
the bottom, where the unique conditions preserved her for 47 million
years,” a statement said.
Her last meal shows she was a herbivore. Gut contents revealed remains
of fruits, seeds and leaves.
“This fossil is so complete. Everything’s there. It’s unheard of in the
primate record at all. You have to get to human burial to see something
that’s this complete,” Hurum said.
The press conference was unusually strongly hyped for a scientific event
and the announcement was tied into a media campaign including the
release of the documentary
