SOUTH AFRICA – Scientists have made an incredible discovery that may be the key to solving a great mystery!
Scientists in South Africa have found fossils of a new species, Australopithecus sediba, that may hold the key to unlocking a mysterious period in human evolution. The fossils are estimated to be 2 millions years old and have similarities to both the southern African ape-man and the earliest of humans.
The fossils belong to a boy aged around nine and an adult female, probably in her late 20s or early 30s, who lived between 1.95million and 1.78millions years ago. Scientists have speculated that the two were mother and child that entered a cave in search for water, fell 150ft into a deep shaft, and died together. Surprisingly, the initial find was made by a nine-year-old boy who was helping his father on a fossil-hunting expedition at the Malapa Cave in South Africa.
“These fossils give us an extraordinarily detailed look into a new chapter of human evolution and provide a window into a critical period when hominids made the committed change from dependency on life in the trees to life on the ground,” said Professor Lee Berger of South Africa’s University of Witwatersrand.
Scientists around the world have praised the discovery, scheduled to be published in a report today in the journal Science, as significant.
“I can’t overemphasize how poor the fossil record from this period is,” said Berger. “There’s a pretty good record 100,000 years before it and 50,000 to 60,000 years after that.”

  1. wow…its amazing how valuable, significant and special africans/african descendents of any country have been, are, and will always be.. peace

  2. EVILUTION is Satan's work! The earth is only 6000 years old, and woman was created asa CLONE from man's rib, which is why (since no such Darwin-worshipping things like genetic drift can occur ON GOD'S EARTH) that everyone share the identical human genome 6000 years later! What…we don't all have the same genome? SATAN HAS FOOLED AROUND WITH THE HUMAN GENOME TO MAKE IT LOOK DIFFERENT! Do NOT believe this " sciencey" GARBAGE! What has it given you? The Spanish Inquisition? The genocide and land-grab of the New World inhabitants? Slavery! Only the BIBLE and Christianity have done that, sciencey-stuff is crap!

  3. Fishmaster, calm down. We are humans, and we do not know how God designed us. The problem with evolution is it mostly does not involve a creater. And point two, God called us to commit genicide in the old testiment. So quit being so dramatic about it please. You give Christians a bad name. Be firm in your belief, and share, not bellow and ridicule.

  4. We have roughly 10,000 years of recorded history. Man has not changed in this length of time. Never has never will. These fossils are animal end of story.
