No, it is a tried and tested phase of science: hypothesizing, a.k.a. making logical inferences. The next phase is testing those.

E.g. the holes of ardipithecine evolution in central Asia, of homo floresiensis' evolution, of homo denisovan evolution, of homo erectus' evolution...
Want more holes?

You're talking about minor details in one tiny branch of a vast evolutionary tree.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Your statement wasn't a hypothesis, you asserted that member of the genus Homo existed 4Ma and there is NO evidence that is the case. The ancestor of Homo appears to have been around at the 4Ma mark.

I am well aware of how to develop scientific hypotheses, but that is not a hypothesis with any evidence to back it up.

Is this place still a shithole run by a dumbass calvinist?

If there was evidence it wouldn't be a hypothesis, dude.... Big Grin

But you you can tell your grandchildren you heard it here first! Tongue
