Life on Earth WAY Older than Once Believed

See how a scientific consensus can be wrong? WAY wrong? Now apply that to the far more nonsensical global warming consensus (full of scandals) and you can see from where I'm coming.

ScienceDaily (July 1, 2010) — 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.
