Did “Lucy” Climb Trees?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 7, 2012

All of us who are human beings are in the image of God. But to be in his likeness belongs only to those who by great love have attached their freedom to God.”  —St. Diadochus of Photike

This question is at the root of a discovery just announced on the cover of Science magazine by Bay Area scientist Zeray Alemseged, Curator of Anthropology at the California Academy of Sciences and Midwestern University Professor David Green.

Australopithecus afarensis (the species of the well-known “Lucy” skeleton) was an upright walking species, but the question of whether it also spent much of its time in trees has been hotly debated for 30+ years, partly because a complete set of A. afarensis shoulder blades has never before been available for study. In an extensive analysis of two complete shoulder blades from the fossil “Selam”—the only ones from this pivotal species known to science—Alemseged and Green found the bones to be quite apelike, suggesting that our forebears were still climbing trees as bipedalism was emerging.

    ” እግዚአብሔር ስለ ገለጠላቸው፥ ስለ እግዚአብሔር ሊታወቅ የሚቻለው በእነርሱ ዘንድ ግልጥ ነውና።

    የማይታየው ባሕርይ እርሱም የዘላለም ኃይሉ ደግሞም አምላክነቱ ከዓለም ፍጥረት ጀምሮ ከተሠሩት ታውቆ ግልጥ ሆኖ ይታያልና፤ ስለዚህም እግዚአብሔርን እያወቁ እንደ እግዚአብሔርነቱ መጠን

    ስላላከበሩትና ስላላመሰገኑት የሚያመካኙት አጡ፤ ነገር ግን በአሳባቸው ከንቱ ሆኑ የማያስተውለውም ልባቸው ጨለመ።

    ጥበበኞች ነን ሲሉ ደንቆሮ ሆኑ፥

    የማይጠፋውንም የእግዚአብሔር ክብር በሚጠፋ ሰውና በወፎች አራት እግር ባላቸውም በሚንቀሳቀሱትም መልክ መስለው ለወጡ።

    ስለዚህ እርስ በርሳቸው ሥጋቸውን ሊያዋርዱ እግዚአብሔር በልባቸው ፍትወት ወደ ርኵስነት አሳልፎ ሰጣቸው፤

    ይህም የእግዚአብሔርን እውነት በውሸት ስለ ለወጡ በፈጣሪም ፈንታ የተፈጠረውን ስላመለኩና ስላገለገሉ ነው፤ እርሱም ለዘላለም የተባረከ ነው፤ አሜን።

    ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር ለሚያስነውር ምኞት አሳልፎ ሰጣቸው፤ ሴቶቻቸውም ለባሕርያቸው የሚገባውን ሥራ ለባሕርያቸው በማይገባው ለወጡ፤

    እንዲሁም ወንዶች ደግሞ ለባሕርያቸው የሚገባውን ሴቶችን መገናኘት ትተው እርስ በርሳቸው በፍትወታቸው ተቃጠሉ፤ ወንዶችም በወንዶች ነውር አድርገው በስሕተታቸው የሚገባውን ብድራት በራሳቸው ተቀበሉ። “

      በሃሳብዎ ሙሉ በሙሉ እስማማለሁ። አመሰግናለሁ! ለመሆኑ ለእነዚህ ሊቃውንት ዕውቀቱን ማን ነው የሚሰጣቸው? እግዚአብሔር ወይንስ ሰይጣን?
