Tree of Life

Postby Gord » Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:18 am

Found a website called the Tree of Life Explorer. You can pick anything from the outer edge and it will trace that animal back to its last common ancestor with humans.

Nice site. I was looking for human females, but had to settle for Neanderthals. ;)

Ahhhh! Humans are forced. I want to trace the common ancestor of hippos and haddock. Imagine the amount of batter needed for one of those.

Hippos & Chippos?
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!
