Hawks doesn't buy the dawn chumans story. I don't have an opinion either way - for once!
I do have an opinion about the way this is being presented in newspapers. They show an image of a modern human next to a modern chimp.
Hmph. Based on Hawk's writings, it sounds like the 'miscegenation'/bestiality "event" was 7 million years ago. I don't think the proto-human of 7 megayears BCE would pass for human today. I have no idea what the proto-chip of 7 megayears BCE looked like - presumably they didn't look like a modern chimp.
I'd like to see a picture of those two side-by-side ...
