Creationists are probably burrowing their heads even deeper into the sand at this news! What if God is really some sort of ambiguous non-shape entity? A mind more powerful than can fit into the skull of a human? So much for Adam being made from dust..it was really gooey sludge. Sometimes you can find him hunkered over a bar stool at closing time, oozing his way towards the nearest Eve.

Not my ancestor, but if anyone wants to claim that muddy little cannibal as their great, great, great granddaddy, then go right ahead, lol! The true lineage of the human race is supernatural in nature and science itself is barely beginning to sniff at the once hidden subatomic energies within our beautiful universe. Unfortunately for the little collodictyon according to the article he is not very sociable, and you would think that after millions of years he would be a little bit further along in the evolutionary process, than to still be living at the bottom of a muddy lake!
