Missing Link: Still AWOL

“Imaginations run riot in conjuring up an image of our most ancient ancestor—the creature that gave rise to both apes and humans. This ancestor is not apparent in ape or human anatomy nor in the fossil record.

“…anatomy and the fossil record cannot be relied upon for evolutionary lineages. Yet palaeontologists persist in doing just this.”

– J. Lowenstein and A. Zihlman, "The Invisible Ape," New Scientist 120(1641):56, 57, 1988.
