Wow!  It just goes to show that every time we think we have it all figured out, we don't.  Thanks for the link, norseman!  :  B

That pushes it back about 3 million years earlier than our previous estimates.  In other words, almost doubling the amount of time that bipedal hominids have 'walked' the earth.  Every year it seems that our understanding of mankind and its ancestry gets upended.  All it takes is one lucky dig in the right spot to completely change what we know to be true.  This is why the argument that Bigfoot does not appear in the fossil record (and therefore cannot exist) has never made sense to me.
