Actually not true... different races have different shaped skulls and different sized ones, which makes a big difference.

No we are not. The races are so different that if all we had were skeletons they would be called different species. A negro skull is not the same as a caucasian skull is not the same as an asian skull is not the same as an aborigine skull. There are concrete, real differences that everyone wants to just gloss over.

We candy coat science in order to appear fair and pc. When the facts show truths that if we all knew them and understood them would make us more like people were in the 30's when they did not have this stupid sensitivity. In order to not hurt feelings we just do not speak of the real differences between the races. But even though they are not spoken of, they are real.

Did any of you read the link?
The skull was found earlier. A chunk of rock was also brought back.



Last month a prehistoric tooth protruding from a boulder tipped off researchers to hidden evolutionary treasure: remarkably complete human-ancestor fossils trapped in a rock that had been sitting in their lab for years.

Scans later showed that the rock contains two-million-year-old fossils that will "almost certainly" make one Australopithecus sediba specimen "the most complete early human ancestor skeleton ever discovered," anthropologist Lee Berger said in a statement Thursday. --- The tooth turned out to be just the tip of the fossil iceberg.

A CT scan revealed other bones inside, including parts of a jaw, a complete thigh bone, ribs, vertebrae, and possibly hand and foot bones.


The fossils were found in a pit inside a cave.
I read several of the articles linked to the nat-geo site and it is quite interesting stuff.
