On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin reports on the recent excitement over the fossil Australopithecus sediba, which is being evangelized by media outlets as a hominid ancestor, despite the fact that the fossils were first reported almost a year and a half ago. Should we buy into the hype? Tune in to the discussion as Luskin examines the sudden resurrection of this story and why many scientists dismiss the fossil as evidence of an ape-hominid transition.
