Scotchy that`s not THAT small.

The could have just found a Pygerian (sp?) Dwarf.
One of tho dwarfs that are in proportion, but INCREDIBLY small.

I heard about this a while ago, on the Discovery Channel actually (I`m a nerd, don`t hate) but it`s really interesting. I wonder if they know whether Humans or Frodo came first. Yes, the Frodo joke was necessary.

n a matter of speaking im a hobbit :P

Im a full grown adult, however, I am very short, and unlike dwarfism, other then sharing the height, I have no other characteristics, I look like a normal person my age, except for my height. Both my parents are tall (6`2 and 5` 10 respectivly) however I am very short, about 4`10, no explanation why either, im in the 1% unknown category when I went to the doctors.

Oh yes, im 20~

"Professor Falk`s analysis used the skulls of 10 normal humans, nine microcephalics, one dwarf and the Hobbit."

Actually, possumeater, "Researchers found one near-complete skeleton, which they named LB1, along with the remains of at least eight other individuals."
Did you even READ the article??

this theory has no evidence to base this "new life form" on, and 90% is merely speculation.

This article is legit, however the species is not. Once again in its quest to try and push the myth of macroevolution, science has created a commotion from a less than credible source. This entire race of "hobbits" is based upon A SINGLE CHEEKBONE. Thats right the whole theory is based upon a single cheekbone, and not even a whole one at that. Wow, now thats science.
