Bizarre Creature Found in 200-Million-Year-Old Cocoon
"About 200 million years ago, a leech released a slimy mucous cocoon that unwittingly encased and trapped a bizarre animal with a springy tail, preserving it until researchers discovered the teardrop-shaped creature in Antarctica recently."

there's a picture of the said creature in the above link...

don't get too excited... cos its small...


"its body extends 25 microns (about the width of some human hairs) with a tightly coiled stalk about twice that long. And like all eurkaryotes, the organism was equipped with a nucleus -- in this case, a large horseshoe-shaped nucleus inside the main body. (A micron is one-millionth of a meter.)"

but if you get overly excited over microscopic critters... then this is your cup o tea...

Bingo! I'm not a religion-tard, but I do believe it's mentioned in the bible that a thousand years are a day to God and one day being a thousand years.

...a leech released a slimy mucous cocoon that unwittingly encased and trapped...

Of course the cocoon did it unwittingly, sheesh...there are no wits in the cocoon...

Anyhow, cool find Dr. Acula! :-) And the leech that did it, glad those things are long gone!!!!!

Re: Bizarre Creature Found in 200-Million-Year-Old Cocoon
the funny thing is that no matter your belief, none of us have any solid concrete way to know if the earth is millions of years old or just a feew thousand in tune with bibilical standards. Either way, you are taking in a belief of a time table as a absolute when you cant prove it. Can any of us even decide what is dreaming and what is waking life. Look at it objectively... none as me saying some new age belief. But at some point you come to the conclusion that this life is short, and that your best avenue is to spend it learning and constantly moving forward. Eventually you learn that the big bad government, the terrorists of third world countries, and the soul sucking corporations are completely irrelavent. This place is chaos, wheter jesus really saved us or we are just a product of evolution, there is no absolute concrete evidence that points to a truth, but there is duality is the form of differing perspectives on just about every avenue, fact, or theory. This place is one giant chaotic subjective expierience. Stop spending your time arguing over dogma in the forms of divine intervention belief or wanting to kill religion.

Hitchens destroyed religion and his infatuation with trying to kill it made him smoke more cigarettes which killed him.

Beleivers spend their whole life trapped in a sado masochist mental prison that leave others pushing them around.

This world is our oyster, use it for good and create something that someone else will pick up on. Life is short and full of shit... make the best of it.....

ten bucks says someone says that I am a shill, satan, or controlled by demons.

the point is that arguing over petty things is time spent unwisely... ask questions that generate in depth discussion, not throwing insults.

Also does any one wonder if we are really talking to other people or just some kind of giant AI????????
