We have recently seen a number of upsets for the supporters of the popular consensus narrative on human origins. One that is perhaps less well-known is mounting evidence for a bi-pedal LCA (Last Common Ancestor of humans and related modern primates). I first heard of this matter as a short throw-away suggestion in a presentation given by the popular scientist, Professor Alice Roberts (anatomist, osteoarchaeologist, physical anthropologist and palaeopathologist). Prof Roberts explained that the locomotion of modern apes, 'knuckle walking', is quite peculiar for a quadruped and would fit well with a scenario in which a bi-pedal creature has begun to favour using the upper limbs for walking rather than other tasks.

Professor Roberts is not alone, Aaron Filler, a Harvard-trained evolutionary biologist and medical director at Cedars-Sinai Institute for Spinal Disorders in Los Angeles, has proposed that our remote ancestors were perhaps fully bi-pedal as early as 21 million years ago. Read more about this theory here and let me know if you agree, or if you see other problems with the current consensus view on our very earliest ancestors including the LCA.
