As others have pointed out apes lost their tales long before H. erectus or even the entire Homo line showed up on the scene, thus there was no tail for H. erectus to retain

Edited by DrJones*, : No reason given.

As for a tail not being useful, that is a ridiculous statement. Balance, open doors, scratch your back. There are plenty of advantages to having a tail.

so god done goofed when she didn't give us one.

of course not, why would I blame something that there is no evidence for? You stated a tail would be very useful, according to you god designed everything, ergo, your god made a mistake when she didn't give you a very useful tail.
