I think they are still a long way from the truth.

The paper is based on fossilized bones found in 2000. The complete skull of Homo erectus was found within walking distance of an upper jaw of Homo habilis, and both dated from the same general time period. That makes it unlikely that Homo erectus evolved from Homo habilis, researchers said.


I don't see how the discovery of Homo habilis and Homo erectus fossils from the "same general time period" changes anything. It would be expected that, if Homo erectus evolved from Homo habilis, it would take a hunk of time for erectus to displace habilis. We know, for instance, that Homo sapiens existed on at least two continents -- and probably three -- with erectus.

If Homo erectus did not evolve from Homo habilis, then who did they evolve from? The long exinct Australopithecines?
