How many missing links are there?
There is a Trini joke that goes: Man loses coin; Man is discovered searching for coin under a lamp-post; good Samaritan offers help but after a fruitless period decides to ask Man where he actually dropped coin; Man responds by indicating a spot a few feet beyond light cast by lamp; in frustration good Samaritan asks, then why are you searching here? Man responds; "because its well lit."
I've been waiting impatiently for scientists to follow up on Sahelanthropus tchadensis a 7 million year old hominin fossil found in the area of modern day Chad aka Toumai.
Scientist have refused to grant Toumai the name of 'Australopithicus' because they claim they haven't collected enough corroborating evidence. Never mind that the identity of almost every ancient hominid has been constructed in the absence of a complete skeleton.
It would appear that we will be forced to accept this theory of a single near East migration until Egypt (North of Aswan) once again sinks beneath the waters of the Mediterranean. The presence of West-African (founder) DNA in Western Europeans will continue to be attributed to Slavery especially now that Iberians are considered White. Never mind that spelled phonetically in Greek Iberians are revealed to be the Hap/biru of Ancient Egypt; and Taurean Cattle exist almost exclusively on the Western side of Africa; that Ancient humans were notorious for following rivers; and that most African rivers flowed South to West into the Atlantic for millennia. Have they worked out yet what caused the Messinian Salinity Crisis?
