(AAPA)   At AAPA 2013 meeting, scientists announced evidence of the skin on two ape-men fossils. No word if the ape-men tossed bones into the sky   (meeting.physanth.org) divider line 25

A multidisciplinary approach that combined morphological techniques (optical coherence tomography, three-dimensional laser scans, micro-CT scans and light microscopy) in association with molecular imaging (Raman spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared) investigated whether original organics may be recovered.

Sounds like the scientists are going to have a look at it.

What about tackyons. Did they use tackyons?

FTA: Any soft tissue found with the hominins, represented by MH1 (Malapa Hominid 1) and MH2 (Malapa Hominid 2) would be of some considerable value, although such preservation is at present unrecognized in the early hominin record.

I agree it would be cool subby, you're just getting a little ahead of things here.

Don't be fatuous.  Everyone knows you use chronometric radiation when trying to look into the past.

When's Matlock on?

Oh, AAPA. I don't care about that. MAAATLOCK!

What an ape-man fossil might look like.

did they die in a nuclear war/

You are the king of understatements.

A tachyons beam is how they ensured the ape-man died in that precise location 20,000 years ago.  Only a lazy scientists waits for "accidental" discoveries.

Merely saying that there is evidence is getting ahead of things?

BTW, Scientists studying the fossil have mentioned since 2011 that they spotted what might be skin and asked via a popular anthropology blog for ideas on how to confirm or refute it.  This is the preliminary positive result.

Malapa Soft Tissue Project

2011: Conjuncture
2013: Evidence
Hopefully soon: Consensus among experts one way or the other.

As Dr. Hawks mentions, one reason why feathered dinos were not known in North America is that the fossil guys until very recently just digged out the bones and ignored the matrix.

BTW, yesterday Science published six papers plus some news features on the Malapa finds though nothing on skin: basically more details on the first two skeletons plus one bone of another individual.  Over two hundred bones are recovered from five or more individuals have been recovered, more bones are still at the site, scanners have revealed that some rocks taken from the site have hominin bones in them.    Lee Berger could spend the rest of his career on this one find if he so chooses (though he is not).  Many people will be working on this one find for many years to come.

You can grind that shiat up and sell it for $50 a gram.  I know a guy.

So, A. sediba had the upper body of a tree limb swinging chimpanzee (long arms and archaic shoulder joint) and the waist-down (hips, legs and feet) of an erect-walking hominid. Sounds like the missing link to me, so fundies...

I use my timey-wimey detector. It goes "bing" when there's stuff.

fingers crossed it was boobs that was preserved

Saying "ape-man" is as redundant as saying "wolf-dog" or "bird-duck."
