Much of the scientific world on all sides are dismissing these finds. A nine foot skeleton utterly destroys the notion that man came from a hairy tailed quadraped aka (monkey). If creatures go-from-the-goo-through-the-zoo-to-you, you would expect to find only smaller humans. Out of all the thousands of giant skeletal finds, one “hobbit” gets all the attention.
