    After two decades of examining different types of organisms through a microscope at the lake in Norway, scientists claim to have discovered one of the oldest organisms. The findings were believed to be the oldest human ancestor believed to have existed millions of years ago.


    Scientists found that single cell organism that has evolved its findings suspect approximately one billion years ago. Cells are not the categories of living organisms such as animals, plants, parasites, fungi and algae, but the cells of early human species.


    "We have found a branch of the tree of life (structural classification of living things) are not known to live in this lake. It is unique," said Kamran Shalchian Tabrizi, researchers from the University of Oslo.


    According to Kamran, after all this time doing research in the area of ​​the lake, he and his team have never found a rare species. "So far we know that no other group of organisms, in addition to these species," he said.


    Scientists named the species is believed to be the ancestors of this man by the name Collodictyon. Collodictyon live in the mud of the lake approximately 30 kilometers from the southern Oslo region.


    These organisms were found to have a length of 30 to 50 micrometers. These cells can only be seen through a microscope.


    Collodictyon has a four flagella that resemble the tail rotor blades are used for moving. These findings also provide insight to scientists on the lives of living organisms that occur on the planet Earth since hundreds of millions of years ago.

    I agree. While it's exciting to find organisms closer and closer to what ever node split the line animals from flagulated protist , it's just silly to feature it as a "human ancestor."

    I don't know if this "Cells are not the categories of living organisms such as animals, plants, parasites, fungi and algae, but the cells of early human species" has lost something translation but it looks like it must have been gibberish in the original. (This, plus the stupid animations, mean that yochanews looks like a "news" source worth avoiding.)

    The Wikipedia article is a bit more readable: Collodictyon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (but doesn't really justify the "human ancestor" claim - apart from the fact that they are eukaryotes).

    I couldn't read it. For such an important find, the article was fraught with grammatical errors. It looks like something you see on this forum like the Russians drilling to Hell thread. Personally, until it reads legibly then I think it's bullshit.
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume
