I think its fair to say that the title of the article is misleading to a degree. To be classified as human, i.e. like us, one must be a member of the
very same species as the rest of us. Of course, this example is not, as alluded to by some of the posters in this thread.
Comments like " science needs to come clean on some things" in relation to this specific article are utterly unfounded, and based in bad
information, or worse, poor understanding of good information. It is actually very simple. Mankind as it is today has only existed for a few hundred
thousand years, as far as discoveries to this date can indicate. There are however, plenty of proto-human species, between what we are now, and the
scat flinging, tree dwellers we used to be.
If however, a body is discovered which is a million or more years old, yet bares all the familiar hallmarks of our species, as it is today, THEN
science will have probing questions to answer about its conduct. Till then, learn to think before speaking.
