‘No amount of missing links will ever convince creationists that humans evolved from apes’
Of course there is a contingency of true believers who will never be persuaded by any amount of evidence, but I think that there are many people who have and will be eventually persuaded by scientific discovery. I am one such case.
Science, has up to this time, done a pretty poor job of marketing it’s success. Many common people do not even know of many scientific discoveries. Thus this fossil discovery is getting a lot of publicity.
Science must plod along, and publicize it’s discoveries. Some will become enlightened because of it, but many will not. However, I think eventually evolutionary science will become overwhelming for the majority of people if we survive long enough. That is my hope anyway.
It is and always will truely be….‘one long argument’ as I believe Darwin said.
