Re: Did human beings ev olve in the sea?
Within anthropology only a handful of scientists are open-minded about the
alternative hypothesis of a stage of early human evolution making use of the
littoral zone of the ocean in eastern AFrica. A few more find the
hypothesis intriquing and at least understand the tenets. The majority
refuse to even consider the data, the logical analysis, nor are they willing
to accept the lack of data and the lack of logic for the alternative
savannah hypothesis. I challenge all of you dinosaur afficionados to go
read Elaine Morgan's most recent and more thorough (scientifically rigorous)
book mentioned below, THE SCARS OF EVOLUTION, and think for yourself instead
of letting one of our favorite professors, perhaps one of anthropology or
archaelogy, to think for ourselves.

There's also "The Scars of Evolution" by Elaine Morgan. I've been trying to
track this book down for the last while. A friend describes it as the best
scientific book he has ever read.
