Quick aside to put another one of JJ's little lines of attack back in the Silly Box he took it out of...

See how he *finally* quoted the text of me explaining the morphological characteristics of afarensis?

See how I started that paragraph?


But go on then, tell me why I would be wrong (actually, it's not me, but the original publishing scientists)


See how I immediately and entirely voluntarily acknowledge that it's other people who have done all the hard work here, it's other people who are the legitimate authorities here, and consequently that I am acknowledging it's their work not mine?

Yeah, so much for JJ's attempt to mischaracterize me as pretending to be authoritative.

Really, I knew that line was there all along the entire time JJ was trying out that little rhetorical dead-end.
