Cornelius brought this up:
 
. a paper out of Doolittle's lab has called for a "relaxation of tree
thinking."
 
This is a good example of scientists doing what scientists do and the
great unwashed, not steeped in science, reaching errant conclusions.
The "tree of life" with more and more fossils having been found has
developed into more of a "bush." Richard Leakey pointed this out in his
book, Origins Revisited. Note the title of his book. With new
discovery of fossil evidence, branches are reshaped when the evidence
accumulates. No one with any sense denies the interconnectedness of
life, but exactly where and when branching occurred gets revised with
new discovery as it should, that's how science works.
