“The old depiction of linear evolution
from ape to human
with single steps in between
is proving to be INACCURATE.”
Dr. Carol Ward, Professor of Pathology & Anatomical Sciences
MU School of Medicine
Dr. Ward’s comment above was made this month in regards to ancient human fossils found that reveal diversity in the body structure of ancient human ancestors. The fossils make it clear that ancient human ancestors had diverse facial features and also in their body types and jaw features.
In my mind this proves beyond doubt, once again, that human evolution is NOT a linear evolution with small steps in between leading from ape to man. Our evolution is not a tree at all but a VERY TWISTED BUSH!
