Hyping another missing link, hot on the trail of Earth’s twin, a crazy (?) creationist, evolutionary silliness, and more!

1. Fish-to-Tetrapod Missing Link Found

According to a much-ballyhooed report in Nature, scientists have found another fish-to-tetrapod “missing link.” Just don’t read the fine print.

2. Astronomers On the Verge of Finding Extrasolar Planets like Earth

Sooner or later, say some astronomers, we’ll run across an extrasolar planet so similar to our own planet that we’ll be able to call it “Earth’s twin.”

3. Tools Forged by Neanderthals Discoverd at Dig

Numerous tools, thought to have been forged by Neanderthals, have been uncovered in England.

4. Ohio Science Teacher In Danger of Losing Job

It’s the sad sort of story that matches up perfectly with a frequent media stereotype of fundamentalist Christians: an Ohio science teacher, already said to have been teaching creationism, has been accused of burning a cross into a student’s arm.

5. Sarcasm Now Considered as an Evolutionary Survival Skill

We at Answers in Genesis think evolutionary theory is just about the greatest thing since sliced bread. And so is sarcasm! Well, at least it gives us a little license to “pour it on” a bit, at least in this piece.

6. Spanish Parliament Supports Extending Human Rights to Animals

For the first time, a national legislature has voiced support for extending human rights to animals.
