Creationism vs. Social Security?
Does George Bush think destroying Social Security helps refute the fossil record?|
Interesting that scientists can find 1.7 million year old hominids showing more concern for the elderly than George W. Bush displays.
Ancient hominids from the Caucasus may have fed and cared for their elderly, a new fossil find has indicated.
The 1.77 million-year-old specimen, which is described in Nature magazine, was completely toothless and well over 40; a grand old age at the time.
This may suggest that the creature lived in a complex society which was capable of showing compassion.
