New evidence shows that early proto-hominid ancestors of modern humans were capable of making and using fire long before previously thought. It is quite remarkable how earlier hominids are proving to be far more able than we gave them credit for. Still, it does beg the question, if a homind from 790,000 years ago could use tools including fire, why is it that Neds/schemies/scallies still haven’t mastered the art of walking upright successfully? Or perhaps they are from a subspecies?
