More Muslims are deciding that the discovery of Ardi disproves Darwin’s basic theory

Here is an excerpt from boston.com:

If you learned about Ardi on the Arabic-language version of Al Jazeera’s website, however, you discovered something else: The find disproved the theory of evolution.

“Ardi Refutes Darwin’s Theory,” Al Jazeera announced, in an Oct. 3 article not available on the English version of the website. “American scientists have presented evidence that Darwin’s theory of evolution was wrong,” the article opened. “The team announced yesterday that Ardi’s discovery proves that humans did not evolve from ancestors that resemble chimpanzees, which refutes the longstanding assumption that humans evolved from monkeys.”

I guess the interpretation of a scientific discovery is treated one way in Western culture and completely the other in the Muslim world. Go figure!
