Scientists from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the University of Chicago have uncovered a remarkably well-preserved fossil lamprey from the Devonian period that reveals today’s lampreys as “living fossils” since they have remained largely unaltered for 360 million years.DNA, red blood cells in T-Rex bones, dozens of “living fossils”, dozens of other low-age indicators…If scientists didn’t already know better, you’d almost think that those fossils couldn’t possibly be 360 million years old. Don’t anyone open your eyes, now! I wouldn’t want you to have to face the fact that your entire life’s work has been a complete waste of time.
