Discovery Pushes Primate Timeline Back

But don't expect human footprints next to Brontosaurus prints. These are not very human-looking primates.

Yeah, but if they want to claim that Adam looked like a lemur, fine by me. Don’t worry, they won’t get far with that one.

So what you're saying is that it wasn't a snake, but rather it was Adam's tail that tempted Eve into eating the apple?

Wait...

I'm confused.

Snakes had legs at one time. Right?

So...

Wait. *confusion*

Shiny! (Uh, I dunno what it is yet.)

You are right. This character doesn't look at all human.

Strange to say, this reminds me of the following tale: A hillbilly found a mirror on a mountain trail. He was from so far back in the boonies that he'd never seen one before. He looked at it and exclaimed, "Why, thet's a pitcher uv mah ol' paw." He took it home and placed on the mantle over the fireplace. Not too much later, he was running out the door to evade flying kitchen utensils as his wife shrieked, "You two-timin' galoot!!! Not only hev ya bin steppin' out on me; ya got the gall to put up her pitcher!!!"

Rev. Nonsequitor desires to see something shiny. Unless it's been stored in an attic for a long time, a mirror is shiny.

We did have an ancient ancestor back when the dinosaurs got nuked.
That is right, I said nuked. It wasn't a meteorite that did them in but a radical Mole rat named Achmed who pressed the button.

One more thing. You should join the Atheist Blogroll. It is good for more exposure.

You just have to email Mojoey and he will add you.

I received an e-mail from a kook ranting about eggs in the ark.

What the fuck?!

Scotius, I was looking for a funny comment about Uncommon Descent and “mirrors” that you might appreciate, made over at After the Bar Closes (the Official Uncommonly Dense Discussion Thread), but I can’t find it—it’s really hard to search the comments. But it went along the lines of:

*First of all, someone at Uncommon Descent says something really stupid, which happens 24-7-365* AtBC commenter: “Man, I remember doing LSD too! This reminds me of the time I was looking around the room and totally stoned, and then I said, ‘Hey! That mirror is, like, see-through, and I can see the outside in it! Whoa!’ And someone else was like, ‘Dude, that’s a window,’ and I was all, ‘Oh, yeah…yeah, I know…I was just checking...’” (I never did LSD myself—too bad.) :)

Thanks for visiting, BaconEating AtheistJew! I did e-mail Mojoey.

I haven’t visited Debbie’s website since yesterday. Hmmm… maybe I should go see the fallout from my “threat?” ;-) Chocolate-eating contest, her against me? I’m up for it.

I received an e-mail from a kook ranting about eggs in the ark.

Eggs on the ark? Holy shit. I wish I could find another expression instead of “Oh, my God,” but…OMG, what an idiot. What was it raining, then—coffee? If so, with or without cream? Caf or decaf for 40 days and nights? Was Mount Ararat made out of sausage or bacon? (Actually, wouldn’t that rock?)
