So now we seem to have discovered the "supermethod", the
"mother of all methods", the method to override all methods,
the thing by which anthropology hangs.

And how and why are people so sure that teeth have some
special properties which allow the unconditional and
incontrovertible establishment of specieshood?

It seems like more bones to me.
