Long story short, a 9 year old boy and his father found a fossilized human ancestor, whose skull has been dated at 1.9 million years old. The discovery was made in Johannesburg, which is notorious for being a hotspot for fossilized human remains. The fossil might not have ever been found, but for the fact that miners in the area were doing explosive mining, sending rocks (and things which aren't quite rocks) scattered about the area.
The really amazing thing about this find? It appears to be an entirely new species, helping to fill in one of the bigger gap periods in human evolution.
In other news, creationists already going into full-on denial due to insecurity mode.

If we take measurement of this skull = 12cm, multiply by tooth width gives 17, add this to the number of people present at jebus last supper = 30.
Now 30 is the amount of teraflops the Cell has, so 30 divided by the number of uncharted games (2) gives 15. correct? now 15 is a possible age that humans can take right? AND important there is Matthew 15 in the bible. HOLY **** ****!!!!! I just calculated that the world will end in 4 years and 25 months!!!
Skull = warning.
Greatest thread ever.

Some christians are quite literal in how old they say the earth is according to the bible. I have got to admit I am on the side of the “the earth has been around for billions of years” crowd.
Anyways – if you take it literally from the bible here is the timeline:
Beginning with the archeological landmark event of the fall of Jerusalem (which has now been corrected to 588 B.C., instead of 586-587 B.C.) and counting backwards the prophesied number of years between this event and the division of Solomon’s kingdom (390 yrs. + 40 yrs., according to Ezekiel 4:4-7), brings us to 1018 B.C.
From the end of Solomon’s 40-year reign to the start of the Temple in the 4th year of his reign takes us back another 37 years to 1055 B.C.
From the start of Solomon’s Temple “in the 480th year” (1 Kings 6:1) back to the Exodus from Egypt (hence 479 years previous) brings us to near 1534 B.C.
From the Exodus out of Egypt to Abraham’s entering Canaan from Haran was exactly 430 years to the day (Gen 12:10/ Exodus 12:40/ Gal 3:17), thus around 1964 B.C.
Since Abraham entered Canaan at age 75 (Gen 12:4), he was born approximately 2039 B.C.
From Abraham’s birth to Noah’s grandson (Shem’s son), Arpachshad’s birth, 2 years after the Flood started, was 290 years (Gen 11:11-26), this places the onset of the Flood at around 2331 B.C. [definitely 4,300-4,400 years ago].
The genealogy of Genesis 5:3-32 precludes any gaps due to its tight chronological structure and gives us 1,656 years between Creation and the Flood, thus bringing Creation Week back to near 3987 B.C. or approximately 4000 B.C.
Therefore, the biblical age of the Earth (using Scripture itself as a guide) is 6,000 years !! (note: assume you are reading this blog around the year 2000, give or take a decade). Mankind did not evolve 4 million years ago on an Earth which is 4.5 billion years old in a universe which was “big-banged” into existence 18-20 billion years in the distant past.
Jesus Christ said He made mankind male and female in the beginning (Mark 10:6), and that when the heavens and the earth were commanded into being (Gen 1:1), they “stood up together” (Isa 48:13) not billions of years apart !!
I'm not trying to start an argument or even a discussion on the validity of it, though, as I don't really believe any of it. Just stating what I've heard.
Earth being 4.5 billion years old? I thought the whole theory was the earth is 13 billion years old.

Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating
