Dear 8 pound, 6 ounce baby Jesus are people going crazy over the latest Google Doodle.
The artwork features “Lucy,” a 3-million-year-old Australopithecus afarensis fossil discovered at the Hadar research site in Ethiopia.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
The discovery happened in 1974 and its impact on the study of evolution can’t be overstated. Since that time, we’ve discovered more than 20 different hominid species, including as many as eight in Lucy’s genus, Australopithecus.
These discoveries show that the theory of evolution is
definitely true at least plausible due to the way in which the species evolved over time.
The reactions ranged from disbelief…
@google I cant believe it. Intelligent people who still want to believe in Evolution. Its a THEORY people, not proven science!!!

…to outright delusional (Google’s Doodles don’t feature any specific religion/celebration during the holidays and opts for a more general approach).
The hypocrites at #Google are showing their prejudice again; preaching evolution & monkey worship while shunning Christian & Jewish holidays

Many are claiming bias by Google, but let’s not forget that it did once answer a question about dinosaurs with a creationist spin.
Sometimes it’s best to just sit back and watch.
