Someone nicely noted to me (by private e-mail) that if I had read the
USA today article closer I would have noticed that the findings for
earlier eukaryotic life were published in Science. "The finding,
published in the journal Science, resets a key biological timer by 1
billion years. Until now, the earliest known eukaryotes were fossils in
rocks 1.8 billion years old."
That does give it a bit more credibility but there is still not enough
evidence cited in the USA Today article so my caution still remains.
