quote:The hobbit had wrists more like those of non-human apes than those of modern humans, according to researchers who say their findings are more evidence that Homo floresiensis is a new species.
"The primitive morphology of the LB1 [hobbit specimen] wrist bones confirms what other H. floresiensis traits indicate," says Morwood.
Scientists have been debating since 2004 whether the bones are really those of a new species or a sick modern human.
Morwood himself says there is now a plethora of both published and unpublished work that supports his case.
He says the stature, body proportions, brain size and structure as well as shoulder, pelvis, jaw and teeth of specimens found in the cave all suggest the hobbit is a new species that evolved in isolation on the island.
"In total these traits all indicate that the species is derived from long-term, insular evolution operating on representatives from a very early, small-bodied, small-brained, primitive proportioned hominin dispersal out of Africa," he says.
This doesn't match your claims at all.
Searching for "experts split over human hobbit remains" takes you to a 29 Oct 2004 article which doesn't mention the wrist at all.
You post like you're loaded for bear, but all you have are blanks?
