Searching Closer to Home.

I’ve just been reading up on the finding of Homo Naledi in Africa. HN is another early form of us, apparently, and one of the differences between HNs and Us is that they had a smaller brain cavity. So then I took a look at the evolutionary league table of early hominids, and if there’s one thing common to all of them it is that they had a smaller brain cavity.

So why are they digging up Africa in furtherance of the search? All they have to do is read the comments on YouTube and track down those writers who betray an unusually small brain. There are thousands of them. They could even restrict the geographical parameters to the Bible Belt alone and still come up with enough study material to last a lifetime.
