    Disclaimer: DO NOT TAKE THIS QUESTION AS SOMETHING IT ISN`T! I MAY BE CHRISTIAN, BUT I AGREE WITH EVOLUTIONARY THEORY!

    How come none of these evolutionary videos and stories we see on here ever mention/address the missing link. Did we find it?

    ive heard this done many ways, but it always makes me feel even more insignificant. we really are nothing in the universe, considering we havent even been much for long on our own planet.

    auburnjunky: the "missing link" doesn`t really exist. It`s like asking a 25 year old for one photo when they turned from child to adult. In reality we have several hundred examples which show growing up, but there`s no "missing link" per se.
    Unless "missing link" refers to some half human half-monkey creature. In the analogy that would be like asking for a photo which shows when you were half-you and half-yourfriendBob.

    we did this in science class a while ago. the homework was to make a timeline (to scale) of the time since the beggining of the earth going all the way to the time occupied by us (meaning our 16 years or so. which was to small for us to draw. needless to say everyone was depressed the next day.

    Strange, but what`s stranger is one of the videos I found when I went to Youtube and searched for "richard dawkins piano". It`s a claim that Richard Dawkins is a closet believer in creationism. No, really, someone has made a 6 minute video claiming that. I didn`t watch it.

    This is why evolution doesn`t make sense actually. I think he`s pulling some reverse psychology on us.

    Cause it was a silly portrayal of a time line? I prefer bars and graphs. :-P

    There is no missing link.

    "less than the width of a piano string". Hmmm

    Piano = 48 inches = 1220mm
    Narrowest Piano String = 0.5mm
    Age of Life = 3.5 billion years,
    Therefore "human history" = 1.4 million years

    Hmmm. Ok. That makes sense. I guess he`s right.

    This is why evolution doesn`t make sense actually.

    Do you look outside and say things like "light doesn`t make sense" too? Evolution can be watched and is massively documented. It has huge effects on humanity every day, the most famous of which is MRSA (which is just one tiny part of an ongoing problem for humanity caused by evolution).

    Anyone who denies evolution is so deliberately and doggedly ignorant of reality that they are insane and deserve derision or pity.

    @auburnjunky what kind of missing link are you talking about? You mean between the common ancestor of the apes and humans? Because there is Ardipithecs, Australopithicus (6 spp), Paranthropus (3 spp), Homo habilis, Homo ergaster....blah blah blah google it. They show part of the development towards modern humans.
