Partly mummified hominid found?

Postby Brian Jordan » Tue Nov 22, 2011 11:44 am

Bones of a 1.9myo woman and child have been found in South Africa, away from the main location of most hominid finds. It seems that parts of their skin may hav been mummified, with the possibility of interesting biochemical findings.

(Thanks to Dawkins Foundation site.)
The difference in location is interesting in itself. If previous hominid fossils are from the Garden of Eden, maybe these are the first hominid evidence of Paul Garner's extra-Eden life? I suppose, though, that we'd need to find some dinosaur fossils alongside them to be sure.

The dates are clearly wrong.

As the find is associated with a water source, it must be proof of Noah's Flud. These were obviously evil people who deserved to die rather than followers of Pastor David Anderson.
