Israeli scientists dicover ancient ecosystem

Writing about web page http://today.reuters.co.uk/News/NewsArticle.aspx?type=scienceNews&storyID=2006-05-31T102559Z_01_L31581222_RTRIDST_0_SCIENCE-SCIENCE-ISRAEL-CAVE-DC.XML

A group of scientist in Israel have found an eco–system which dates back millions of years. Inside they have found 8 previously unknown species. It turns out the cave was sealed off completely from the outside world. It is certainly an interesting discovery… this could well be the closest thing we ever get to real dinosaurs in our lifetime (unless we get DNA out of amber or minerals – I've got some if anyone knows how to extract it…)

It is a bit of a worry that there might be bacteria in there which we have had no experience with so our immune system won't be able to handle it… just a thought. And the reverse is also true – these creatures might not last very long now.

    Some further proof of evolution, if any was needed.

  4. well actually Chris you got this one wrong; it's proof of Intelligent design – even in isolation creatures still end up being pretty much the same as if they weren't… almost like they were working to some sort of design… ; )

    Except that all of these creatures don't have eyes – because they don't need them. Obviously you can't disprove ID, but ID and evolution aren't mutually exclusive theories anyway, so it's pointless…
