    Interesting how there is an actual correlation in the fossil record to “little people” (as well as giants). But I’m not sure I understand why Homo Erectus has Gene Simmons’ hair?

    Or wait… maybe I do.

    I wonder how their intelligence compared with other, extant primates.

      Probably very low with such a small brain cavity.

    Based on this research, I am convinced that the Orang Pendek is probably a surviving modern-day representative (or a descendant) of the Hobbit, Homo floresiensis.

    But with the Yeti and the Sasquatch, in my opinion, the situation is a little bit different. You see, these 2 cryptids are so similar to each other that, in my opinion, they must be members of the same species (or at least the same genus).
    And they also happen to be so unlike any primates from the fossil record, that I just can’t identify a good candidate for either one of them. Therefore, it is my hypothesis that the Yeti and the Sasquatch are creatures which are completely new to science. So new, in fact, that the fossils of their ancestors probably haven’t even been discovered yet.

    This proves a very important point; when you’re dealing with hominology, you cannot just lump them all together, and then proclaim that your own pet hypothesis must explain them all. That’s just not how it works at all.
    Indeed, I shall once again repeat that, in my opinion, the Orang-Pendek is not closely related to the Yeti and Sasquatch at all, and that it is most-likely descended from its own, and very uniquely-evolved, ancient lineage.
