David, if your young anthopologist came forth with a theory that
required one (as your recent posts have) to ignore all aquatic predators
(such as crocs and sharks), one might think he had not thought out his
subject quite enough. A real description of human evolution takes a lot
more time and space than you're gonna get from on-line posts. For a
readable, extremely thorough, and still quite relevant description, read
Nancy M. Tanner's "On Becoming Human" (1981, Cambridge U. Press). It's
in a lot of public libraries as well as university libraries. Dean
Falk's "Braindance" is also pretty good, more recent (although not as
all-encompassing), readable, and available in a lot of public libraries.
