Whatever Ardi was, everyone agrees the fossils was initially badly crushed and needed extensive reconstruction.
Evidence is growing that organisms share existing genetic information horizontally, not just vertically.
An intelligent design paradigm can easily accommodate convergences as a natural consequence of a designer reusing the same ideas in different constructions.
All orders and families of the angiosperms appear abruptly in the fossil record (the same for most lower systematic categories).
Initially, Ardi was widely called the “oldest human ancestor,” due to its supposed skeletal traits that indicated an early bipedal (upright walking) species.
