Are You Related to a Brainless, Gutless, Worm With No Gonads?

 

According to Leonid Moroz and 13 other scientists you are. A new phylum was assigned to a species of worm found in the Baltic sea that could be a missing link in early evolution.

Puzzled by a half inch Baltic Sea worm called Xenoturbella it was originally thought to be a type of mollusk. Further investigation showed it to be possible sister to echinoderms and hemichordates as well as chordates, the line humans evolved from.

“It is a basal organism, which by chance preserved the basal characteristics present in our common ancestor,” Moroz said. “This shows that our common ancestor doesn’t have a brain but rather a diffuse neural system in the animal’s surface.”

You know, it IS pretty obvious considering that Bush is part of our species and is SO like this brainless(listen to him), gutless(his war record) worm.

Thank you for the invitation confed :D
