Even among evolutionists there is no consensus, but you’ll have to read it for yourself. They can’t figure out if the family tree is a tree or a shrub, if it is a slow drawn out process (Dawkins) or if it happened all at once (Gould, ‘punk-eek’). I don’t this this proves anything, I do think it shows how much the exalted scientists of the world don’t know. They are just as ignorant today as yesterday. Bone chips prove their case, and nothing more:

WASHINGTON – Surprising research based on two African fossils suggests our family tree is more like a wayward bush with stubby branches, challenging what had been common thinking on how early humans evolved.
The discovery by Meave Leakey, a member of a famous family of paleontologists, shows that two species of early human ancestors lived at the same time in. That pokes holes in the chief theory of man’s early evolution — that one of those species evolved from the other.
I’m not making any statements about it, I’m just posting it here for you consumption. It will probably turn out to be a hoax, so I won’t put any stock in it. It is what it is: Human wisdom again turned upside down and proved rather shallow.
The two species lived near each other, but probably didn’t interact, each having its own “ecological niche,” Spoor said. Homo habilis was likely more vegetarian while Homo erectus ate some meat, he said. Like chimps and apes, “they’d just avoid each other, they don’t feel comfortable in each other’s company,” he said.
They get all this from looking at a piece of bone that they contend is millions of years old. Do you know often the weather man is right? And, of course, there is the standard ‘This doesn’t prove anything’ statement from some genius Rhodes Scholar at a prestigious university:
Susan Anton, a New York University anthropologist and co-author of the Leakey work, said she expects anti-evolution proponents to seize on the new research, but said it would be a mistake to try to use the new work to show flaws in evolution theory.
“This is not questioning the idea at all of evolution; it is refining some of the specific points,” Anton said. “This is a great example of what science does and religion doesn’t do. It’s a continous self-testing process.”
It’s always a refining. It’s always self-testing. It’s always a religion vs science issue. It’s always, ‘We are the educated ones and the religious people are fools. So believe us not them.’ It’s still evangelism. These morons cannot be content with finding and believing what they find and believe. Their wisdom is defunct. I could give a scientist a square inch of cauliflower and they could find a way to make it prove that we evolved from vegetables. And yet continually confronted with their own evidence, they still refuse to believe.
Absolute Genius. And to think that we entrust the education of children to the hands of people like this. Baffling, I tell you, baffling.
The Beginning of Wisdom is the fear of God.
