[Video] - New Human Relative Species Discovered in South Africa

In groundbreaking new research published on Thursday, a new species of human relative has been discovered in South Africa. The findings, published in the journal eLife and reported in the October issue of National Geographic, detail the new species, known as Homo naledi, which was found in a remote cave chamber that also contains many other bones yet to be investigated. 

The scientists analyzed more than 1,550 fossil elements, making the discovery the single largest fossil hominin find yet made in Africa, where human ancestors are thought to have originated before spreading throughout the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

This is probably an Athiest's dream but unless this species spoke and communicated in the way of the events of the Bible...I'm not a believer.
