RE: Ardipithecus - ape men?
That's the best reconstruction we can make, based on the info we have. Or had at the time that drawing was made. They predate australopithecus afarensis (the species of the famous "Lucy" fossil).

What's your question?

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

They were not totally bipedal because they still had hand-like feet. This means they probably still lived in and near trees. Their bipedal posture most likely came from standing up while foraging like giant sloths (see this brief photo essay that I wrote). As I explained on the outside forum, what they look like is derived from known muscle attachment sites on the body and muscle and skin depths on the skull.

looks exactly like the Ardi but why is it considered Hominid, but not Ardi?

Both are related hominids, hence the reason why they look similar. Lucy (3.2 MYA) is more recent than Ardi (4.4 MYA).

Debate is joke or serious?

so you saying that Ardi has hand-like feet and are like Giant Sloths? That's why they live in trees? Shocking

Korin, just checking, is English your first language? By your name and grammar I'm wondering if you might be from Russia or eastern Europe?

I'm just going to chime in here and say:

Isn't the term "ape men" a little ... pointless? Like saying "Mallard duck", or "duck mallard" depending on where the 'man' is placed in relation to the word ape..

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

The debate is based on different interpretations of skeletal morphology like the shape of the dental arcade, cranial size, size and shape of fingers, type of pelvis and feet, etc.

The only similarities between Ardi and a giant sloth was their foraging habits, which led to them having similar pelvises. They are not related.

RE: Ardipithecus - ape men?
Pha,

google 'Korin dragonball' - that's where I got name from.

and no I am not from Russia, but I respect Russian Federation.

I don't want to reveal my location, personally. (hint: somewhere in The Americas)

ghost,
so who ever wrote that about 'hominin or not' - got mixed up?
because it is hominin.

FT,
i just said because it look like a man and a ape combined. so moderators can rename topic, if they see fit.
