Nope, these things are far from settled. We can't even settle on what occured with Cro-Magnon and Neanderthalis.
There's alot of holes in the fossil record and anyone who looks at these things honestly will tell you this.
People do have a desire to have everything explained and settled but that's not the case.
Here's some quotes:
"An aquatic Ape is a likely ancestor of humans in terms of primate behaviour, marine ecosystems and geophysical timing."
- Prof. Derek Ellis, Dept. of Biology, Uni. of Victoria, Canada
"All other theories about the origin of our species have reached an impasse."
- Dr. Michel Odent, author of 'Water and sexuality'
"An aquatic hypothesis offers far simpler explanations."
- Dr. Chris Knight, author of 'Blood Relations'
"It is difficult to see how all the points assembled to back the Aquatic Theory can be explained away."
- Dr. Desmond Morris, author of 'The Naked Ape'
"The aquatic hypothesis... cannot be eliminated yet."
- Prof. Glyn Isaac
"We believe that this proposal [AAT] should be taken seriously."
- Prof Michael Crawford, author of 'The Driving Force'
"[AAT] conforms to current theories of speciation better than the savannah origins model, and accounts for a number of diverse phenomena hitherto not
seen as connected."
- Prof. Graham Richards, author of 'Human Evolution'
Evolution is not a settled issue and what some do is say evolution has to fit this narrative and any other theories or hypothesis is wrong if they
don't fit a pre-conceived notion.
There's alot of traits that we don't find in the line of primates we are supposed to be descended from.
I think this actually shows 2 huminoid species. One who directly evolved from or were created by the Aquatic ape(Cro-Magnon) and their more primitive
and brutish cousin (Archaic homo sapien).
What we find out is that Cro-Magnon is anatomically different from Neanderthalis but they are in line with modern humans.
The researchers wrote in the newly published paper: "The Paglicci 23 individual carried a mtDNA sequence that is still common in Europe, and which
radically differs from those of the almost contemporary Neandertals, demonstrating a genealogical continuity across 28,000 years, from Cro-Magnoid to
The results demonstrate for the first time that the anatomical differences between Neandertals and Cro-Magnoids were associated with clear genetic
differences. The Neandertal people, who lived in Europe for nearly 300,000 years, are not the ancestors of modern Europeans.
This suggest that Cro-Magnon mixed with archaic homo-sapiens and drove neanderthals to extinction.
This theory might not be 100% correct but evertime a theory comes along someome acts like evolution is settled when they don't know.
