Beyond Old

It looks like life on Earth goes back a whole lot further than originally thought.

From Science Daily...
The discovery in Gabon of more than 250 fossils in an excellent state of conservation has provided proof, for the first time, of the existence of multicellular organisms 2.1 billion years ago. This finding represents a major breakthrough: until now, the first complex life forms (made up of several cells) dated from around 600 million years ago.

These new fossils, of various shapes and sizes, imply that the origin of organized life is a lot older than is generally admitted, thus challenging current knowledge on the beginning of life.

Eve must be a lot older than those brilliant Creationists think. I'm waiting for them to blow a gasket over this.
