Contrary to Popular Belief, Human Hands Are Not as Evolved as Chimpanzee Hands
Kurtis Hiatt from The George Washington University, tells us that from a purely evolutionary perspective, our hands represent a much more primitive anatomical structure when compared to the hands of chimpanzees.
Apparently our hands have changed very little from that of our last common ancestor while chimpanzees have evolved significantly.
A finding which would finally explain why chimps are much better at knitting than humans are.

Zoo Animals Monitored for Earthquake Clues
A popular zoo in China has become the focus of an unusual new earthquake prediction experiment.
It has long been thought that animals can predict earthquakes by sensing subtle changes in air pressure and other indicators, and now a group of researchers in China have decided to put the idea to the ultimate test by monitoring the behavior of 200 pigs and 2,000 chickens.
Whether or not any conclusive results will come from these observations remains to be seen.

A peculiar animal so strange Charles Darwin was baffled by it was unearthed in Uruguay 180 years ago.
With the body of a horse, the legs of a camel and the nose of an elephant, this creature roamed the earth about 10,000 years ago. The bizarre species called a Macrauchenia Patachonica was a complete mystery to scientists at the time.
Now scientists, including specialists from the University of York and the Natural History Museum in London, have been able to use a technique called protein sequencing to determine that this bizarre species was actually a close relative of the horse.

Welcome Dear Readers! This week Gregory was attending vacation bible school which is just like regular Sunday School only hotter and with a lot more coloring.Let’s see what Gregory got to color, shall we?
Gregory Brings Home The Twelve Disciples Coloring Book!
One day while Jesus was soaking up some rays at the sea of Galilee, he saw some fishing ships. Well this gave Jesus an idea!He would make all the fishermen he saw, fishers of men! So He got busy recruiting twelve disciples.
So color along with us as we open the pages of the Twelve Disciples Coloring Book!
Simon was one of the first fishermen Jesus recruited. He belonged to a sect called the Zealot Club where they spent a lot of time poo-pooing taxation and throwing darts at pictures of Pontius Pilate.
Andrew was known as the “introducer” because he introduced his brother, Simon to Jesus. He and Simon owned a fishing business, and Andrew did all the marketing.
Bartholomew was in Jesus’s top six. Jesus recognized Bartholomew as a man of imagination and vision. Plus he had epically big guns!
Then there was John. Besides being one of Jesus’s favorites disciples, John was the first person to recognize Jesus after Jesus resurrected. He later went on to write a bestseller called “The Revelations”.
Then there was John’s brother, James. James was one of the three disciples who made up Jesus’s inner circle. James was the first disciple to succumb to martyrdom which in those days was fatal.
Another Disciple of Jesus’s was also named James. Everybody called him James the Less because he was younger than the other James. He kept telling everyone to call him Jimmy but it just never stuck.
James the Less
Peter (or maybe Simon)
Peter’s name was actually Simon but everybody called him Peter for short except for Jesus who called him “The Rock” or possibly “Rocky” because of his immovable faith. And yet, after Jesus got arrested, Peter denied he knew Jesus three times until he heard a rooster crow which reminded him that oh yeah he did know Jesus after all! Duh!
Peter “The Rock” Simon
Another disciple was Thomas, who was cursed with the nagging doubts that are produced when an individual has low self-esteem combined with being a stickler for details. After Jesus was resurrected, Thomas refused to believe it until Jesus showed him the nail prints and two pieces ID.
Then there was Jude. Not to be confused with Judas. Jude was the least famous of the disciples except for maybe James the Less who was Jude’s brother. Jude was the introverted disciple who never raised his hand and who laughed at everybody’s jokes but never made any himself.
One of the disciples was Mathew, who was the richest of the disciples before he gave up everything to follow Jesus. He was a tax collector and was good with details. Mathew always had a pencil in his had and took it upon himself to write down everything Jesus said word for word. Everybody thought he was hard of hearing because he was always asking Jesus, “What was that again?”
And finally there was Judas. Judas was the disciple who said all the right things but who was slightly sketchy. But nobody suspected just how sketchy until after Jesus got arrested and suddenly Judas had 30 pieces of silver burning a hole in his robe pocket and he was buying everybody drinks and looking at expensive pyramids. Of course, in the end Judas repented so that he could still get to heaven.
And there you have it, Dear Readers! The Twelve Disciple Coloring Book! Gregory says have fun coloring and be sure to stay in the lines!
