Wow, it was just laying around in a pile of rubble! Of course this means it is 2.8 million years old! It is not like ancient humans could dig holes or anything.

Funny they even mention Lucy, a know fraud containing bones found scattered over a river bed over many miles and even in different layers. No one cares. There is too much money tied up in this. Plus it is anti-church, anti-God, so lets shout this discovery from the hilltops!

GPS works by having many satellites in an egg shaped orbit around the Earth all broadcasting an atomic time. Your hand held radio receives these signals,and based on the time difference between the individual (and visible) satellites, the location of the satellites is then mapped out mathematically and thus you can triangulate the exact lat and long coordinates of the hand held radio based on that.
