skeletons of homo floresiensis have been discovered — they were about 3 feet tall, which has marvelously led to them being described as “a hobbit-like species.”
naturally i think: how will the creationists reconcile the new species? a monkey? just a tribe of short people? false evidence planted by god to confuse us?
and then i think of the many myths of the little people around the world. we do live in such a marvelous world. i really hope that we don’t completely fuck it up, and that it stays marvelous for our great-great-great-descendants.
