  • Biological clock data from protein sequences indicate times for the divergence of humans and African apes that are only 2–3 million years before the present and hence inconsistent with the generally accepted view ofAustralopithecus on the evolutionary line toHomo. This inconsistency has been reconciled for most investigators by postulating a slowing of the biological clock among higher primates. However, there is no independent evidence for such a slowing, and for a number of reasons a specific… CONTINUE READING
