Human Quadrupeds

From AFP through Yahoo News:

Human quadrupeds discovered in Turkey

Tue Mar 7, 7:56 AM ETLONDON (AFP) –

The discovery of a Turkish family that walks on all fours could aid research into the evolution of humans.ADVERTISEMENTResearchers believe the five brothers and sisters, who can walk naturally only on all fours, may provide new information on how humans evolved from four-legged hominids to walk upright.Nicholas Humphrey, evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics, told The Times the discovery opened "an extraordinary window on our past".

And here is the right wing Christian reaction thanks to Rachel A. on Rapture Ready:

Why does it have to be an "evolutionary link"???

How about they are just weird people.

Sometimes people really over-analyze these things.

I used to know a kid that ate worms and dirt too. Maybe he was an "evolutionary link" too! You know, back to a time when our animal-like ancestors ate bugs and such??? Last I heard he was living in Columbus. Maybe we should contact the scientists and let them know about him too!!!
