Summary of “Three new discoveries in a month rock our African origins”

Four years ago, the story of modern human origins seemed fairly simple.
The last month has seen more shake-ups to the modern human origins story than any time I can remember.

Hublin is proposing a big idea: These skulls, together with the whole population of Africa at the time they lived, was on the road to modern human origins.

Morphology does not tell the story of modern human origins.

Does the alternator in the car go out, and it costs $300 to fix? We gotta take out a credit card debt, beg family or friends for money.
She put a very little amount of money in there- maybe $200 or $500. She told me when I was a kid, “Eric, I started you a college fund. Let’s learn how to save money, and one day you can go to college.” One day my mom finds out that money is missing.
In theory, we can now never run out of money, assuming we don’t do any stupid shit like buying a Hermes bag, a Hublot watch, and a Maserati.
