Darla Zelenitsky, the University of Calgary paleontologist who was brought in to examine the five ancient fish dated the fossils at 60 million years, from a period called the Paleocene, the period that came after the Cretaceous.
Not so, says anthropologist Chris Kirk at at The University of Texas at Austin: it's a "wet-nosed" strepsirrhine primate, which include the lemurs and lorises.
They found that body volumes had increased by over five orders of magnitude since the first animals evolved.
Hurum revealed that Ida is currently at the Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt, Germany, where it will be CT scanned in high definition.
But Edgar Nernberg isn’t a man who “believes” in science – instead, he claims that the fish are 4,500 years old, from Noah’s flood, and the media seems OK with that.
According to a study in the April 19th 2012 issue of the journal Science, the results of the research have implications not only for the fields of biotechnology and drug design, but also for research into the origins of life---on this planet and beyond.
This means that you don't need to have the ribose and deoxyribose backbones of RNA and DNA in order to have transmittable, heritable, and evolvable information. Microscopic, sponge-like African fossils could be the earliest known animals--and possibly our earliest evolutionary ancestors.
