You are badly mis-construing what I am saying. Even a Homo erectus band
could live for millions of years and not be fossilized. Lucy is NOT a Homo
erectus Since I didn't even mention Australopithecus or Lucy in my last
post, I presume you chose not to really pay attention to what I said. Why
don't you re-read what I said and respond to that rather than
responding to what you wish I had said.
