    We learn new things all the time without changing the basic facts. That's how science works. Too bad the basics of how science works is not taught to everyone.

    I wish I could go back in time and tell my teachers Pluto is not a planet and see what they say.

    If they'd scoff then ask them if they know the criteria for what constitutes a planet. That'd really nail'em.

    They're not suggesting the skull is a half dragon and half humanoid. It's just an elongated humanoid skull found in China. This dragon man.

    The doubts it brings up aren't against evolution. The find simply modifies current evolutionary theory. Nothing else. It's a very incredible find.

    I didn't think they were saying it's half and half. Imagine that though, half and half, that would be something.

    It would. I'd look at reptiles with a different view.

    I understand it's not 'proof' against the theory of evolution. But shakes up the branch of presumption a bit.

    Everything needs to be shook up a bit. Science can't be scientific if it doesn't embrace new data even if it presents possible challenges.

    We don't know every species that has lived. Finding new species doesn't discredit evolution, it adds to our knowledge of evolution.
    Technically you evolved from a infant to a adult. That's basically what evolution is, change over time, but more technically change on a species level. You can say age but its basically evolving.
    The big difference is species change over time(millions of years). For example at one time there was one feline lineage species ,,,evolution stepped in...then there are many such a lion, tiger, cheetah, leopard, down to the little house cats we know today.

    Ok so why do you think the depiction has the being wearing pants? Not enough hair to keep him warm, like gorillas have? More science? Or artistic license.

    Firstly, the finding is suspect. Its not been published in a good journal at all.
    Secondly, we have been actually looking for such human species in Asia for quite sometime now. We expect H. Erectus to have diversified into multiple species in Asia between 1.9 - 40000 years before present. Denisivians, hobbits etc. are examples, but there will be many more. I do not think this dragon man is legit, but others will come which are better validated in the future.

    Why do we think there were only a couple of Hominini/Homo species living at any given time? Most every species have several to many species living at any given time. Why would we be any different.
    I get and understand without the fossils there is no evidence but then again the evidence may lie in what we see in others species. We won't uncover and discover every lineage from our past and we won't find every species either.

    Think its hard tracking down your ancestry for the last 1000 years, try the last 2 million years.

    Does nothing to undermine or bring into question our understanding of evolution. It simply presents the tantalizing possibility of another hominid species that, if verified, would need to be worked into the evolutionary tree as we understand it to exist.

    Semantics and definitions. Doesn't change the fact that Pluto exists as we understand it to exist. Simply refining the word "Planet" for more precise and directed scientific investigation.

    That's what I am saying. We expect a large diversification of hominins after they reached Eurasia at 2 mya.

    Magic is how you think they got there. Evolution is a natural process requiring no magic.
