Apparently special CT scans of Lucy’s limbs showed evidence of tree-climbing behavior:
Other comparisons carried out in the study suggest that even when Lucy walked upright, she may have done so less efficiently than modern humans, limiting her ability to walk long distances on the ground. . . . All of her limb bones were found to be very strong relative to her body size, indicating that she had exceptionally strong muscles, more like those of modern chimpanzees.
Secularists are finally catching up with our high-tech Creation Museum exhibit by saying that Lucy was a tree climber!
Creationists have been saying for years that Lucy wasn’t some kind of human ancestor. She’s just part of the great variety God built into the ape kind. The more scientists learn about Lucy, the more apparent it becomes that she’s just an ape.
