I don’t like to nitpick much any more, but their post is exceptionally misleading. The “latest” is not that Homo naledi just fell into the Dinaledi chamber. I never said that, so let me elaborate.
The bones did not just fall into the Dinaledi chamber. I feel quite confident in affirming the original hypothesis that complete Homo naledi bodies were intentionally placed in the Dinaledi chamber, and I expect future research will continue to support this hypothesis.More.
For the record, we did not think Dr. Wood thought that the bones just fell in. But the paper he critiques (which posits that the bones were not placed in the cave intentionally) would seem to leave a limited range of alternatives. Fallen in? Carried in by small animals? What?
Dr. Wood also corrects us in that he is not an anthropologist, as we had supposed, but a Young Earth Creationist and a baraminologist. Thanks, we will remember that. Regret errors.
