I can't stand the lies that these scientists continue to come up with deceiving people.These bones existed years ago in that museum. This year some scientist took another look at the bones and decided to assume they are something other than what they are. When you can't find answers to a lie you make stuff up. No DNA. Simply someone's opinion. These bones existed years ago in that museum Someone doctored it up to gain recognition. They draw people to the link as if they are deliberately trying to brainwash them. "Ten things you need to know today" Yeah right. You notice they didn't say we found the key to evolution. They know they would be lying. If you follow these people you are going to end up in a burning lake of fire called hell. Make no mistake about it.

stop falling for bologna, New discovery is like new and improved when it has already been discovered. It is either New there for never before. Or it is something that was new once then used and then improved.

This appears to be a primate skull of some unknown origin, i.e. monkey.

Evolution was never proven. These scientists come up with a lie everyday to dig themselves out of that pit. They can't find proof, so they make assumptions. This story is based on assumption. Someone's guess. Claiming that the skull is something different than what it really is. If so then where is the DNA that backs it up? People don't realize that these scientists already know evolution wasn't proven, but they are forcing the world to accept it anyway. There is no DNA that matches up with anything. This is just another opinion. When scientists come up with so-called evidence, it is always a guess.
