For 150 years, scientists have debated the course of our evolutionary journey from tree-dwelling primate to modern Homo sapiens.
When Darwin put forward the theory of evolution in his book On The Origin of Species, he suggested that there were transitional species linking humans with the rest of animal life.
Scientists have long hoped that the Earth might eventually yield an even more ancient fossil that links apes, man and all other primates to the earliest mammals on the planet. Now Ida is the most complete primate fossil ever found and has proto-anthropoid features, placing her at the base of the anthropoid branch which leads to monkeys, apes, and humans.
Interesting reading whether or not you agree with the evolution theory…
