Newsgroup question:

> Is Lucy a Monkey?

Damn right it is!
``Lucy" is nothing more than a member of the ``monkey" family,
with no connection -- none whatsoever -- to early man.

The dreamers and hallucinators who led the ``expeditionary" team
are well aware of the fraud they had attempted to perpetrate by
claiming it to be a missing link.

Fact is, the few bits and pieces of what they called ``Lucy" -- to go
with the vast majority of manmade bonelike additions that were used to
fill the many gaps -- weren't even found in close proximity.

Truth is, ``Lucy" is a mosaic of a few bones that were found over a
square mile.

To put it rather bluntly, ``Lucy" is a mockery of scientific
integrity (if some still exits in the field of physical anthropology,
which I sort of doubt)).
