By now, you’ve probably read about the incredible discovery of Homo naledi. Members of the species had very small brains (about half the size of our own) and very long and curvy fingers that may have helped them swing from trees. National Geographic calls it one of the “greatest fossil discoveries of the past half century.”
The fossils were discovered in an African cave in 2013 and could force us to rethink what we know about human evolution. I would suggest reading these articles in the Washington Post and Atlantic for easy-to-read accounts of what happened and what it all means. It’s very exciting for so many reasons.
I know what you’re wondering: What will Ken Ham and his crack Creationist “research” team say about this discovery?!
