Standing alone, you might claim that the early Australopiths were merely morphological variations on an ape. And you would be right!<quoted text>You obvious know nothing about comparative anatomy to make such an asinine statement. Tell me specifically what makes an australopithecus skull a pre-human ancestor and not simply morphologic variability within the chimpanzee species.
But then the later ones like Sedibus are merely variations on the early ones, even further from a conventional ape.
Early H. Habilis are merely morphological variations on Sedibus.
And then H. erectus is merely a variation on Habilis.
And Antecessor a variation on Erectus.
And Heideburgensis a variation on Antecessor.
And Sapiens a morphological variant on Heidelburgensis.
That is what we have been saying all along. Its a continuum.
Glad you agree, thanks for playing.
