I receive feedback

It's always good to receive perceptive, constructive criticism. Astute and erudite commenter, Susan Burns, writes:

In regards to your new evidence of aquatic ape; you are an asshole.

I must admit, I'm somewhat perplexed as to how anyone (either pro- or anti-aquatic ape hypothesis) could take such exception to this post, but there you go. We live and learn.

  1. Humans did not descend from aquatic apes, of course, although our ancestors were too heavy & slow to run over open plains as some anthropologists still believe.
    Instead, Pleistocene Homo populations simply followed the coasts & rivers in Africa & Eurasia (800 ka they even reached Flores >18 km overseas), google, eg, “econiche Homo”.
