And this quote comes from National Geographic – do we really have enough evidence of human evolution?? Check this out!
“The fossil record is frustratingly ambiguous. Slightly older than H. erectus is a species called Homo habilis, or “handy man” – so named by Louis Leakey and his colleagues in 1964 because they believed it responsible for the stone tools they were finding at Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania. In the 1970s teams led by Louis’s son Richard found more H. habilis specimens in Kenya, and ever since, the species has provided a shaky base for the human family tree, keeping it rooted in East Africa. Before H. habilis the human story goes dark, with just a few fossil fragments of Homo too sketch to warrant a species name. As one scientist put it, they would easily fit in a shoe box, and you’d still have room for the shoes.”
