Hey Lucy, I'm Home!


Many people have been told the story of that wonderful prehistoric ape named Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis).  Found some 33 years ago in Ethiopia, she has been the cuddly ancestor we descended from long ago on the African plains.

Well, just when you want to feel safe in knowing that favorite monkey you came from...news comes back that Lucy is no ancestor at all.

Now, I am not making any claim today about evolution, but I will note that the science behind many claims has shown to be well "specious."
