Human Origins & The Aquatic Ape Hypothesis

I just saw this post by Greg Mayer (this Greg, not this one) over on Jerry Coyne's blog, Why Evolution is True, which knocks TED for spreading what Greg considers pseudoscience: the aquatic ape hypothesis. It does seem like a valid criticism, and not just a reaction to her calling evolutionary biologists "evolutionists" in the first few seconds of the talk.

Have a look at the video, and browse the above critique by Jim Moore, plus John Hawk's blog posts for more details.

It's interesting to talk about from a devil's advocate perspective...but if the science spoke for itself, it wouldn't need a PR campaign.
