Lucy, Google and gnashing of creationist teeth

Postby Brian Jordan » Fri Nov 27, 2015 3:19 pm

I didn't notice it, but apparently yesterday Google devoted its home page doodle to the fossil Lucy, to commemorate the anniversary of her discovery.
According to the Telegraph, this caused much ire amongst the creationist fraternity. There's not a lot more to say, really: the Telegraph had to pad out its story with lots of ridiculous tweets from the evolution deniers.

You can see the doodle, from the Independent, here:
