Google has offended Creationists with new primitive man doodle on their homepage.
Today Google’s new doodle features the Australopithecus Lucy and celebrates the 41st anniversary of the discovery. In 1974, around 40% of Lucy’s bones were found in Ethiopia. She is considered as an early human ancestor and believed to have walked upright. The discovery is a key link to support the theory of evolution.
Google doodles are intended to informative and fun. However, today’s salute has caused a bit of a stink with creationists who have been lighting up Twitter.
@google my web page shows google in evolution form. Gtbkm! What do you think are we are evolving to? I am changing search engines! OFFENDED

@google Funny how the main Google image today is the evolution of humans from monkeys. If that was a cross, world would be up in arms. Shame

The other side on Twitter
However, evolutionists also took to Twitter to say “we’ve got your back, Google.”

If today's #GoogleDoodle on evolution offended you, congrats on being exactly what's wrong with our species. I hope you get eaten by lions.

So some Christians are mad about today's Google doodle being about evolution. Sounds like it's time for a separation of church and search.
