What About Lucy/Australopithecus? (Part 3)

We’re talking about our supposed evolutionary ancestor, Lucy, in this series.  Did Lucy, in fact, have a knee shaped in such a way that it could walk upright like a human? That’s an interesting question, with an even more interesting answer.

Well, the truth is … wait … don’t trust me, I’ll let a non-Christian answer that question:

The skeleton called Lucy does not have an intact knee.


Well, that settles that.  If they don’t have the knee, then they don’t know how it stood. 

“But Carl, they do have the ‘Hadar Knee’ which was totally human.”  But, when you research the “Hadar Knee,” you’ll find that it was NOT found with Lucy.  It was found a year before at a totally different site.  They just put it in Lucy’s family!

There’s one more feature that would show whether Lucy walked upright, and that’s the hip.  A human-shaped hip would also allow Lucy to be bipedal, like us.  So, what’s the hip shaped like?

We’ll get into that next time. For more tools, check out our website at debunked.org.  Stay bold!
