The missing link
In a top of scientific discoveries of 2009 the discovery of a human-like fossil was name the science breakthrough of the year. This is a long debate and one of the arguments of non-believers in the theory of evolution: the fact that there are no species between monkeys and humans and the gap between them is too big to be explained by evolution. The scientists were looking for years for this type of fossil and it seems the finally found it: a creature that looks like a monkey but has some characteristics that indicates a biped walking. Unfortunately the evidence of talking cannot be seen in a fossil, so we will still debate for some time about where do we come from.
