Jason,

What are your specific objections? Do you understand and/or have
a problem with convergent evolution? Are the time spans a
problem? Do you understand my argument that tool making is a
niche and has led to our general appearance or after successful
tool making experience, these hominids could have vacated earth
because it was undergoing vast change? Please help me understand
why you can't make "sense" of this hypothesis. I want you to try
and poke holes in my theory; insults don't count.

But to call it "unintelligent" without a crumb of evidence as to
why you feel this way, is a great example of unintelligent
criticism.
