Ida: Missing Link, or the Next American Idol?
So, you’ve heard of Ida, the “missing link” that proves Darwinism? She’s the latest rock star of the fossil world, and her mug has been splashed all over the place for the last couple of weeks, accompanied by breathless words of praise from hyperventilating science-types (“the missing link is no longer missing!” – Sir David Attenborough).
