Jason, in case you wanna know send me a private e-mail and I would say to you where you can find information and photographs of living Neanderthal man, the name of the person, the name of the author of the book, help you to find photographs available by internet, location, etc. It's a fact evolution books never showed the Peruvian skulls, that's evidence available in museums that ignorant people don't know. That's evidence orthodox science LIED to you. In the same manner the rest of evidence remains occult to you. And, by the way, these people don't have their bodies filled with thick hair the same way chimps don't have eyebrows and no simian has long hair as human women can have.

So, a regular American maybe imagines all Brazilian do have feathers in their heads or speak Spanish and in many ocassions they ignore themselves in what part of the map of USA they live. Or confuse the land of Mayans with Incas and ignore what current coin do they use in Poland or what's the capital city of Sweden and Switzerland, things like that. A research indicate most Americans spend at least 9 years in front of the tv when they reach 60 years old. Too much hypnose! So, you have a dichotomy where you can find narrow-minded and general ignorance and excellence in the speciality of the things you're studying. More than this, since English has became an important language as it was French decades ago and Latin centuries ago, there are too many filters. For example, regarding the tread we're dealing here, you can find information in Spanish, Portuguese books, German and French links AND NONE IN ENGLISH, why would it be? There are powerful interests in keeping the population in ignorance. So my advice to you is, whenever you can, learn another language, let's say French, German, Russian, Spanish and perhaps, only perhaps, you would become less cyclope, with the omatidies eyes of a flie with 8000 little hexagonal eyes, perhaps you can watch the things with different angles instead of being hypnotized by the things they want to show and print everywhere. Travel more, talk with people more intelligent than you instead of the usual crap you see around. Learn to digest before making a quick criticism and then regret it and making a fool of yourself in front of other people. Posts: 3542 | From: china | Registered: Feb 2003

He observes in nature plants remain the same (and if you show him ancient fossils e will check there were plants like today that never changed or fishes, insects, etc). In thousands of years not even stages of the so-called metamorphosis except adaptation to climate respecting the very pattern of life. Simple men are not deceived by words written with Latin names and strange names saying too much without saying anything, it's part of the purpose to write like this in order to "interpret" and mask truth...exactly like the laws written in Constitution, linguistic chaos not even layers understand.... and hence thieves and assassins get free.

"He suggests that the increase in size may be due to an increase in mental capacity over the ages." Yap! If you use the same argument in reverse we would have to admit Cro Magnon & Neanderthal INDEED had an increased mental capacity, more than us! You know what? These people are idiotic. We would have to believe size is document and women are less intelligent than men which is not the case, we're just built in different way with different capacities. These people have confused "progress" which is accumulation of knowledge through time in a step by step procedure 1+1=2 but "intelligence". Some modern tribes which didn't have that process were taught modern things and they learned easily. If we put an ancient Egyptian and teach him how to use desktop he will certainly learn like us. This has nothing to do with size, all those arguments are superficial. They were saying neurons don't grow in adults, recent investigation contradicts that. All speculation in behalf of "science".

Hybrid bear shot dead in Canada
   
There have long been stories about mysterious crossbreeds



A white bear with brown patches shot dead in northern Canada is the first grizzly-polar hybrid found in the wild, DNA tests have confirmed.

Canadian wildlife officials say it is the offspring of a male grizzly bear and a female polar bear.

There have long been stories of oddly coloured bears living in regions where the two territories overlap.

But until now, grizzly-polar hybrids, dubbed "grolar bears" or "pizzlies", have been found only in zoos.

The hybrid bear was shot last month by an American big game hunter on Banks Island, Northwest Territories, Canada.

His guide, Roger Kuptana, noticed the creature had the long claws and slightly humped back of a grizzly bear and thought it might be a hybrid.

The body was seized by officials, who sent a DNA sample for tests which confirmed its unusual origins.

   
There are behavioural differences between the species, including timing of mating seasons, that make hybrids highly unusual
David Field, Zoological Society of London

"It's something we've all known was theoretically possible because their habitats overlap a little bit and their breeding seasons overlap a little bit," said Ian Stirling, a biologist at the Canadian Wildlife Service in Edmonton.

"It's the first time it's known to have happened in the wild."

Nanulak bear

Polar and grizzly bears have been bred together in zoos, but in the wild they rarely cross paths.

However, some grizzly bears have been seen venturing across the ice towards polar bear territory to search for food after emerging from hibernation. This might explain how the rare union occurred.

"In the limited area where the two species' ranges overlap, it is not entirely surprising that we might find a polar-grizzly hybrid," said David Field, Zoological Director of the Zoological Society of London.

"However, there are behavioural differences between the species, including timing of mating seasons, that make such hybrids highly unusual and it is unlikely that any resultant offspring would be viable."

Canadian wildlife officials are now thinking up a name for the creature. Some of the suggestions they have come up with so far are "pizzly", "grolar bear" or "nanulak", after the Inuit names for polar bear (nanuk) and grizzly bear (aklak).

Scientists Claim New Monkey Species Found
 By MICHAEL ASTOR, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 35 minutes ago



RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil - Brazilian scientists say they have discovered a new monkey species overlooked in the receding rain forest of the country's northeast coast, although other experts believe the primate may have been documented before.


Antonio Rossano Mendes Pontes, a professor of Zoology at the Federal University in Pernambuco, said in a telephone interview on Thursday that the discovery of the monkey, dubbed Cebus queirozi, showed how little is known about Brazil's flora and fauna even in developed areas.

He spotted the monkey near the Pernambuco state capital of Recife, about 1,200 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro.

"As soon as I saw the monkey with its golden-yellow hair and the white tiara on its head, I knew it was a new species," Pontes said.

A scientific description of Cebus queirozi, which has longish golden-yellow fur and a snow-white cap on the front half of its head, was published in the international scientific journal Zootaxa earlier this month.

A male adult weighs about 6.4 pounds and measures 32 inches from head to tail, according to the description.

But some primatologists questioned whether the species was in fact new to science.

Some suspect Pontes merely rediscovered a monkey called Simia flavia, named and depicted in a drawing by German taxonomist Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber in the 18th Century but never seen since.

Mario de Vivo, a primatologist at the University of Sao Paulo not involved in the new finding, said the monkeys look almost exactly alike.

"But we don't know, because Pontes didn't keep a specimen of the monkey," he said.

Scientific descriptions usually require that scientists kill a specimen and deposit it in a museum for future examination, though there are exceptions.

Pontes said he captured, examined and photographed one of the monkeys but returned it to the wild because of the small number of individuals surviving in nature.

Pontes said he had identified about 32 individuals belonging to the species in an area covering some 500 acres of forest and swamplands.

Vivo conceded that the monkey in Schreber's drawing differs from Cebus queirozi in that it lacks the distinctive white band stretching from ear to ear, but he said that may have to do with the age of the specimen in question.

"Even if it is only a rediscovery it is important that such a large monkey could go unnoticed for so long," Vivo said.

Pontes said the monkey, which he was calling the blond capuchin in English, avoided detection for so long by hiding inside the swamp.

He said he stumbled on the species by accident during a five-year forest survey in Pernambuco state.

Pontes said the monkey appeared in the last of 24 forest fragments he was studying along with his students at the Federal University of Pernambuco, and when their guide told him there was a monkey species living in the area he didn't believe him because the area was so small.

"It's incredible that in the 21st century there hasn't been an extensive survey of medium and large mammals in that area," Pontes said.

Only about 7 percent of the Atlantic rain forest, which once lined much of Brazil's coast, remains standing, compared with the better-preserved Amazon rain forest to the north, of which about 80 percent remains intact.

There are more than 300 known monkey species in the world, including 111 that are endemic to Brazil.
