Big News: Decisive New Evidence of Human Evolution

It comes from Ethiopia, as you might expect if you follow these things. It is unambiguous proof of the continuing evolution of early pre-human primates.
Four-million-year-old remains in Ethiopia have provided the first hard proof of a link between two key stages of human evolution by bridging the gap between pre-human species, paleontologists said.
"For the first time, we found fossils that allow us to connect the first phase of human evolution and the second phase," Dr Berhane Asfaw, anthropologist and co-research director of the project that found the remains, told a news conference Wednesday in Addis Ababa.

"The fossils represent unambiguous evidence for human evolution," he said.
Indeed they do. It won't make any difference to the hard core creationists, but for the reality based community it is yet another victory for rationality.
