“A. sediba is the wrong hominin in the wrong place at the wrong time to be our direct ancestor.”
“How, and why, did we evolve from apes?” This is the question posed to children by South African paleoanthropologist Lee Berger.
Accompanying the praise of a “missing link” were what might be called retroactive confessions of ignorance.
Evolutionary scientists commonly tell the public that the fossil evidence for the Darwinian evolution of humans from ape-like creatures is incontrovertible.
Those who capitulate to the Darwinian consensus are deemed of normal intelligence and fit for office. Those who don’t are subjected to public mockery and humiliation.
