"The average idea is not the consensus. As to primate origins there is no
consensus." My bad, I meant that there is a general agreement regarding the
ancestry of humans. Of course, a consensus doesn´t necessarily mean it is
the truth, but the most widely accepted scenario becomes the  then again
most of todays knowledge is tomorrows  But what you need isaccepted
paradigm. That is, until novel evidence calls into question the consensus.
Sticking the label of phenetic and calling molecular phylogenetics
"phenetics" is not how you do it. What you really need is new fossils that
are incompatible with chimps are ancestors.

"...that side of the coin misrepresents the state of the science and the
nature of the evidence." Which is to mention all possible points of view
regarding topics which are the actual focus of the paper? Again, lemurs are
not people.

Going to sleep.
