This does prove global warming, though. :woohoo:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I'd not expect a massive difference in the finger bones.

The thumb, on the other hand, pretty much defines being human.

The original scientific article paints a different picture. It doesn't say it 'shows no signs of evolutionary changes', all the scientific paper states is it changes the timeline a bit as to when we see certain hand characteristics in hominids.  At that 'no sign of evolutionary changes' is no where in the paper nor implied.

More detailed information. Not only is this not a fossil that shows 'no evolutionary changes' and the same as modern humans, but if you look at the details on page 3 of this, it appears this is a transitional fossil.

Uh-oh.  Now we're going to get slammed by the creationists and "intelligent design" whackos.
