And obviously it looks just like I imagined God's rib would.

Jan. 27, 2009 -- A sperm-looking creature called monosiga is the closest living surrogate to the ancestor of all animals, according to new research that also determined animal evolution may not always follow a trajectory from simple to complex.

Yet another find of the study, published in the latest PLoS Biology, is that Earth may have given rise to two distinct groups of animals: bilaterians -- animals with bilateral symmetry, like humans -- and non-bilaterians, which include corals, jelly fish, hydra, unusual, often poisonous, creatures known as cubozoans, and other organisms.

Free-living, unicellular organisms called choanoflagellates, however, could be on every person's family tree, so long as it was a gigantic one.

No surprise there.

I'm gonna have to question the spermy comparison.
If my swimmers looked like that under the 'scope my wife woulda gone to the bank.

Cool.

But in five years, some new information will probably surface that will probably blow this out of the water.

'tis the nature of the beast.

First, it wasn't God's rib. It was Adam's. Adam was made our of dirt and clay.

Second, it's pretty hilarious how the article is entitled "Ancestor for All Animals Identified, like it is a rock solid fact. However, if you read the article, one of the scientists states that this thing is a "probable ancestor." Not so rock solid, huh?

Yeah, you're right. How dumb of me. That's much more rational.

What someone can't correct you, let's all be uber-intellectual atheists and use really fancy words to sound smarter than we really are, we'll also use phrases like "probable", "maybe", "evidence suggests", it's a merry go round of verbage which in the end means we really don't know but you can't be a scientist and an idiot.

I say, prove any of it. And by the time anyone can, the question won't matter anymore.

It looks like that energy sucking creature from the Original Star Trek, the giant space amoeba.
