The "Missing Link" is Still Missing!

"Creation Moments Responds to the Latest 'Missing Link' in Human Evolution."

"It is now May and Creation Moments has been wondering when – during this Darwin’s bicentenary year – some startling new fossil discovery would be announced confirming Darwin’s Theory. Well, the announcement is a bit late – Darwin’s birthday was February 12. And, to put it mildly, the discovery is not at all spectacular.

It’s a skeleton of a lemur monkey a mere 21 inches long, but half of that is the tail. It is claimed to be 47 million years old, and it was found in two parts by an amateur fossil hunter in Germany in 1983. The fossil female monkey, squashed as flat as a beer mat, was cleaned and set in polyester resin, then hung on a wealthy private collector’s wall like a Picasso painting until 2006. She then came into the hands of a private dealer, Thomas Perner, who took her to the Hamburg Fossil and Mineral Fair in Germany. It was there, in the murky world of fossil-trading, that he learned the possible market price. Perner asked for more than $1 million – ten times the amount of even the rarest of fossils on the black market."
