Lucy

More Evidence that Lucy Climbed Trees

The BBC reports that detailed analysis of the fossilised bones of the Lucy, thehominin claimed to be 3.18 million years old, show she may have spent a lot of time climbing trees. Measuring the strength, and dimensions, of Australopithecus afarensis’ arm and leg bones, using high-powered CT scans, and comparing these to chimpanzees and modern humans, the team at University of Texas in Austin, show Lucy was more Chimpanzee-like in anatomical structure than modern humans.
This is not much of a supprise to creationist who have always believed that Lucy was probbly like a chimpanzee, and was not an early human.
