The evolutionists always conveniently forget that Mr. Darwin said his theory was wrong as he was on his death bed. Many say he wasn't in a proper state of mind when he said it. I think (note - my opinion) that he might have had a revelation from God.
One thing though - Jesus didn't change his tune before He died. He had you and me (and Mr. Darwin) on His mind when he went through his torture
I can't recall where I heard it, but I remember reading that it's actually the media who are reporting these finds that play it off more as some "missing link" for human evolution. Taking things scientists say about the finds out of context. That a lot of the times such a find Is a link of a sort, but between two closely related species and have no connection to humans at all.
