Its never ceases to amaze me regarding how certain things transpire, as I was actually doing some research on this subject yesterday after I became acquainted with a young attractive woman of east African decent on one of these popular social networking sites. Today , while focusing on something totally different, I came across a link which gives details on the efforts currently underway to digitize Lucy.
For those who are not familiar with exactly what I am talking about, a brief explanation is that in the month and year of November 1973 (My Year/Month of Birth) one of the worlds most groundbreaking and enlightening discoveries was made.
Lucy (also given a second (Amharic) name: dinqineÃ…Â¡, or Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dinkenesh,Ã¢â‚¬Â meaning Ã¢â‚¬Å“You are beautifulÃ¢â‚¬Â or “you are wonderful”) is the common name of AL 288-1, the 40% complete skeleton of an Australopithecus afarensis specimen discovered 1974 at Hadar in the Awash Valley of Ethiopia‘s Afar Depression
An expedition was formed with four American and seven French participants, and in the autumn of 1973 the team surveyed Hadar, Ethiopia for fossils and artifacts related to the origin of humans.
In November 1973, near the end of the first field season, Johanson noticed a fossil of the upper end of a shinbone, which had been sliced slightly on the front. The lower end of a thighbone was found near to it, and when he fitted them together the angle of the knee joint clearly showed that this fossil, reference AL 129-1, was an upright walking hominid. Over three million years old, the fossil was much older than any others known at the time. The site lay about two and a half kilometers from the site at which they subsequently found “Lucy”.
Anyone with any amount of higher education would be able to comprehend how much intellectual discourse can and is made regarding this discovery, yet for those who are not UP ON IT, it centers in on two specifically important concepts, that of the actual true origins of humanity (Creation vs. Darwinism), and
the accuracy of commonly held beliefs known to you as recorded history.
I only wish to put 2 cents in to the pot and state what I have heard stated before, which is that the term
Pre-Historic due to the nature of the terms definition automatically indicates that there is a story that proceeds HIS-Story!
With that said, along with my personal dis belief in the concept of coincidence, the Digitization of the remains of the oldest living humanoid ever discovered on planet earth comes at the time of a switch over to a digitalÃ‚Â format in most forms of communication, specifically in the area of Television in the month of February 2009.
It is what it is, yet it still always leaves me with a question as to why anyone has YET to have found The Male Counterpart of LUCY. My best assessment would be that there truly IS nothing new under the sun, and with that being said, I , like most of my bro’s, do have a tendency to roam, and not stay in one place for too long.
